It’s another tragic tidbit in the Glee star’s premature death, as the magazine reported Lea had called Cory “the one” to a confidante, as things were on the upswing after his stint in rehab this past spring.

“They were 100 percent happy and together and in love at the time of his death,” the source told the magazine. “They never broke up.”

Cory, who played the role of Finn Hudson on the Fox hit, was found dead at 31 July 13 in a room at Vancouver, British Columbia’sFairmont Pacific Rim Hotel. The British Columbia coroner’s office subsequently confirmed the embattled actor’s life ended as result of a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol.
