Cory Monteith’s Double Life: Sober in LA, Not in Vancouver — Report
As we wait to officially hear what led to Cory Monteith’s (Finn) untimely death at age 31, TMZ reports that sources tell them while the Glee star remained sober on set, he returned to bad habits whenever he traveled north of the border.
The Canadian city was where he liked to party, TMZ reports: “Our sources say Cory’s resolve to stay clean dissipated whenever he returned to his native Canada. That’s where he became a drug addict with a serious drinking problem.”
In LA, the support of his Glee cast members including girlfriend Lea Michele (Rachel) kept his demons at bay, but whenever he visited Canada TMZ says Cory’s family knew “he reverted back.” Their efforts to help, however, were “in vain” with Cory growing distant whenever they reached out.
