Lea Michele was spotted out in public on Tuesday. According to Yahoo! Omg! on July 31, this was the first time the 26-year-old “Glee” actress has been seen out since the death of her long-time boyfriend 31-year-old Cory Monteith on July 13.
Michele was reportedly spotted in L.A. on Tuesday sitting in a car with a friend and was wearing her gold “Cory” necklace. Cory Monteith, Michele’s “Glee” co-star and boyfriend of more than a year, passed away earlier this month from a heroin and alcohol overdose.
Apparently, this recent photograph of Lea Michele in L.A. is the first sighting of her in public since Cory’s death. Michele also made a statement on her Twitter account Monday saying, “Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love and support. Cory will forever be in my heart.”
The cast of “Glee” is reportedly also scheduled to film an episode for the popular Fox television series’ new season as a tribute to lost cast member Cory Monteith. The new season is expected to start production next month, which is later than originally planned to “help with the grieving process”, said the show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy.
