This just in: Glee star Cory Monteith (Finn) has checked out of rehab! After less than a month undergoing treatment for substance addiction, the 30-year-old has left rehab and is back in Los Angeles spending time with his co-star girlfriend Lea Michele (Rachel).

The announcement that Cory had made the decision to seek treatment came on March 31, with Lea immediately releasing a statement in support of her boyfriend. The Glee star was first spotted out in public on Friday, April 26.

E! Online has exclusive photos of Cory meeting up with Lea at LAX upon his return. The site reports that the Glee star received treatment on the Caribbean Island of Antigua, and then flew to New York CIty solo before meeting up with his girlfriend in Los Angeles.

In the photos, Cory is wearing a denim shirt, dark grey pants, sunglasses, and a brown leather jacket. He’s sporting a new haircut, shaved on both sides — similar to Puck’s (Mark Salling) most recent Glee hairdo.

The Glee star has a huge smile on his face and seems especially happy to be reuniting with Lea. In the photos, she’s carrying a passport — could the two be heading out of the country on vacation for more R&R?

While we’re excited to see Cory looking so happy — and back with his love — 26 days does feel like a pretty quick period of time to overcome an addiction. Are you surprised to see him out and about so soon?
