Cory Monteith and Lea Michele: Their Last Public Photos as a Couple

Glee power couple Lea Michele (Rachel) and Cory Monteith’s (Finn) real-life romance came to a shocking halt on July 13, when the world learned that Cory had died in a Vancouver hotel room. Lea found out about Cory’s passing the same day as everyone else — and barely 30 minutes before news hit the internet, at that.

Cory and Lea’s last public photos as a couple were taken on June 21, as the lovebirds returned home to Los Angeles after taking a trip to NYC to visit Lea’s BFF, Jonathan Groff, on the set of his new Ryan Murphy movie. Looking at the photos, it seems clear that Lea and Cory couldn’t have been happier or more in love. We can’t believe that their relationship ended up coming to such a heartbreaking conclusion.
