When Cory Monteith died earlier this month from a drug overdose, fans wondered how Lea Michele would deal with the tragedy.
While her rep has issued statements about her continued need for privacy, Glee creator Ryan Murphy did shed some light on how strong she's been, given the circumstances.
Cory and Lea shared some beautiful moments on screen--and off-screen, they seemed to be wildly in love too.
According to a new report, Cory was so smitten with Lea that he told family and friends she was "the one."
Cory's cousin, Richard Monteith, told People magazine, "Cory told me he had found the right one."
One of Lea's friends told the magazine, "He didn't seem nearly as driven or ambitions as she is," adding, "Lea is an incredibly talented, supremely intelligent actress. But she is also one of the most complicated women. Cory softened her in a lot of ways. It's clear that they had something genuine and surprisingly sweet."
Lea's love for Cory shines in a new Marie Claire interview, where she says, "he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible, and I am so thankful for him."
