Lea Michele: Grateful for Support, Grieving Alongside Cory Monteith's Family

by at . Comments

Lea Michele has released her second statement since the death of her boyfriend and Glee costar, Cory Monteith.

After simply asking for some privacy during a "devastating time" the day after news of Monteith's passing broke, the actress has now come out with the following words through her rep:

"Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she's received from family, friends, and fans.

"Since Cory's passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them. They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory's family."

Autopsy results were released yesterday and they confirm what most believed after hearing of this tragedy:

Monteith died from a mixture of heroin and alcohol.

No word yet on funeral arrangement for the star or on how Glee Season 5 will handle the challenge of a main cast member passing away.

We continue to send our wishes, thoughts and prayers to Monteith's loved ones.
