Cory’s rep gave this statement to People on Sunday night:
The actor “has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his rep tells PEOPLE. “He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Soon after, Lea Michele, his Glee costar and real-life girlfriend, said this about the situation:
I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”
Update: Monteith’s other Glee costar Chris Colfer tweeted this, which is possibly a reference to Cory:
- The Pentagon is repealing its ban on transgender people serving openly in the U.S. military.
- Adnan Syed, whose murder conviction was a subject of the "Serial" podcast, is getting a new trial.
- Donald Trump secretly listened in on phone calls at his landmark Florida estate Mar-a-Lago, sources tell BuzzFeed News.
