Glee star Cory Monteith checked into rehab within the past few days and he is blessed to have the full support of girlfriend and costar Lea Michele as he works to fight his addictions.
According to a report from RadarOnline, word of Cory entering rehab broke on Easter Sunday and many wondered if Lea was blindsided by his addiction issues or a strong presence for him to lean on during his ordeal.
Cory once told supporters he was 'lucky to be alive' due to a serious drug problem during his teen years. He clearly has relapsed, but has the love and support of his girlfriend and the professional services of a rehab facility to help him through this incredibly difficult time.
Lea issued a statement of support for Cory Monteith this weekend.
"I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this, I am grateful and proud he made this decision," she said.
A rep for Cory Monteith issued a statement on his behalf.
"Cory Monteith graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery," his rep said.
Cory is one lucky man to have the love of a good woman during his current trials. Knowing that love and continued support await him upon his discharge from rehab will no doubt provide him with that extra boost of confidence he needs to fight his demons.
Kudos to Lea Michele for sticking by Cory Monteith. Rachel Berry must truly love her Finn Hudson!
