Glee actor Cory was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver last July (2013) at just 31 years old. According to the final coroner's report, it was confirmed Cory had died accidentally from a combination of heroin and alcohol.

Earlier this year in January, Lea spoke out about Cory's passing. The singer said she feels the "insane love" she and Cory had for each other has helped to give her the strength to continue on with life.

She said: "There's just something about knowing he's watching everything I'm doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him."
