Glee’s Cory Monteith has checked himself into rehab


Actor Cory Monteith, best known for his role as Finn Hudson on Fox’s hit Glee, has checked into rehab.

Via Monteith’s rep who spoke with People:

“[Cory] has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”

The 30-year-old has been open in the past about his struggles with substance abuse. In a 2011 interview he admitted to having entered rehab when he was 19. He explained at the time:

“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too. But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.”

In the Parade piece, Cory revealed just how bad things were for him as he discussed having started abusing alcohol and marijuana at age 13. He then moved on in his drug abuse to what he labeled, “Anything and everything, as much as possible. I had a serious problem.”

Cory’s girlfriend and Glee co-star Lea Michele also spoke with People, expressing her support:

“I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”

    good for him. He didn’t wait to get caught/have bad stories spread everywhere. He saw a problem and he’s solving it.

    • Hannah

      He’s proving why he is a much loved star. He seeks help when he needs it – he hasn’t let it get to the point where everything bad is being reported on him – he is fixing it before it gets uncontrollable, and for that I have to support him. Much love + strength to you Cory ♥
