Fans are still shocked at the untimely death of Cory Monteith on Saturday (July 13) at the age of 31. Even sadder, it appears the Glee actor was about to take the next step in his relationship with costar and girlfriend Lea Michele.
“Lea and Cory were planning on moving in together after he got back from Vancouver,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.
The couple, who have been dating for over a year, “weren’t talking engagement or marriage yet but it was heading that way,” says the source. “The first step was Cory was going to move in [to Michele’s L.A. home] completely. He was already there all the time.”
Although there have been rumors circulating that the two had broken up, it appears Cory and Michele were still very much a couple. “They were 100 percent happy and together and in love at the time of his death,” the source insists. “They never broke up.”
