Cory Monteith’s life was obviously cut far too short when he suddenly passed away on July 13 after intaking a fatal dose of heroin and alcohol, and the Glee star had some big plans for the future.
Besides continuing his role as Finn Hudson on Glee, Cory’s personal life with girlfriend Lea Michele was going better than ever. He was reportedly planning a surprise for Lea’s 27th birthday, coming up in August. “She didn’t know what,” a source revealed. “But she thought it could be a party and possibly a trip somewhere.”
Although Cory and Lea only dated for a year before his death, he was also allegedly looking even further into the future when it came to their relationship. Cory was planning on moving in with his girlfriend when he returned from his trip to Vancouver, and even though they hadn’t discussed engagement or marriage, a pal says it’s clearly where the relationship was headed.
Now, Lea is forced to figure out the future on her own. She’ll start by getting back to work on Glee, which will begin filming again due to her consent. Season Five will premiere on Sept. 26.
