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.

    Get over yourselves! He led the life he wanted to lead - he knew the risks - he was not a baby - he lost the game. Period.

    Carolyn and Nawhal - drug and alcohol addiction is a DISEASE, just like cancer or HIV. If you have the disease, it causes you to do things that, often, you don't WANT to do. You have no control over it. It doesn't make someone any less of a person. A person can still be strong and be addicted. The disease can just be stronger.
