Vancouver - Lea Michele got the phone call no one ever wants to get the evening of Saturday, 13 July.

The 26-year-old Glee star's costar and real-life boyfriend of more than a year, Cory Monteith, was dead at the young age of 31.

A source told Us Weekly that Michele got the heartbreaking call in Los Angeles at around 22:00 that evening. The person on the other end of the line had been desperate to reach her before the news broke.

Monteith had been found dead just past noon in a Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room.

"Lea completely lost her mind," says a confidant. "She went crazy, screaming and crying until 3 a.m."
TMZ reported that Monteith was cremated in Vancouver on Tuesday.

Michele reportedly attended a private viewing with his family.
