BREAKING: Cory Monteith Checks Into Rehab for Substance Addiction
Cory Monteith has checked himself into rehab for substance addiction, his rep confirms to JustJared.com.
The 30-year-old Glee actor “has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his rep said in a statement. “He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Cory previously opened up about his addiction issues when he was nineteen.
“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,” Cory said about his previous issues in an earlier interview with People. “But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.”
I bet paps have compromising pictures. Pre-emptive measure getting into rehab.
Sad, but unfortunately can't be too surprising. He has been (admirably) honest about his past. Addiction is a terrible beast, there is no such thing as a past addict, just one who is currently without relapse and one who has.
Good for him for trying to take care of the situation before he had some public embarassment.
Dating Lea would drive anyone to drugs.
What drug is he on?
Wow, I can hardly believe it!
He's lost a good deal of weight this season on GLEE. I didn't know whether to attribute it to a fitness regimen or drug use.
The byproduct is that he looks every minute of his 30 plus years.
BREAKING means something important, something that impacts the lives of many others, a national emergency, something that matters,.
90% of what is labeled as BREAKING on DL is not.
OP NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ABOUT CORY
He "graciously" asks for respect? Pompous ass.
BREAKING: R7 doesn't understand how things operate around here.
He looks better than ever. I might have to start watching GLEE again.
Do people even still watch this show? I remember it being all the rage in 2009/2010, but I never hear people talk about it now.
Are you new, R7? Your second sentence should have been a clue to the use of "BREAKING" on the Datalounge. You're an embarrassment.
Well people will be tuning in now to see if they can see the " signs" of his addiction.
So is someone going to replace him as Mr. Shuster?
Time so change your tampon r7.
One wasn't meant to last 10 days.
Maybe it has started to sink in to him and/or his representatives that his 15-minutes will be up as soon as "Glee" is over (which cann't come soon enough.) He is the luckiest piece of shit "actor" in SAG/AFTRA to have gotten this far. Barf. Go drown yourself/shoot up, asshole.
Don't worry R16, lots of other people failed to make it as actors, you aren't the only one you bitter biatch.
I like him lots. I will watch something else he's in, if it's on TV. The movies he'd get would be teen crap.
His bitch tits have gone away over the last few years. You can trace his history on that site.
I rape grandparents!
What kind of "substances"?
I like him, hope rehab helps him.
His body's pretty crap. His butt is more like a long back.
Hope he redirects his crack/coke/smack money to a personal trainer.
I like pizza, I really do. ...i prefer sausage combo, but and I do mean but, the sausage has to be ground up, with lots of anise. I don't like the big chunks of bland sausage that tastes just like hamburge3r, I mean what's the point? I like very thin slices of red onion, slices have to be paper thin so they basicallly melt. ...give me thick slices of red onion where they don't fully cook through and I'll be sending the fucker back, I don't mean to offend, but if I ask for paper thin and I'm paying 20 something dollars for a pizza you god damn better pay attention to what ia ask for. if its thick it's too strong. I really would prefer shallots rather than red onion, but I've yet to find a pizza place that has shallots as a topping. I do remember Pipes and pizza in Redwood city and they actually had shallots as a topping, pretty fucking cool.. ...not to mention the pipe organ that came out of the floor and played showtunes. I remeber once the organist was blind, not that that makes a difference, but her body language was fucking hiserical. I love pipe organs, there should be more pipes and pizza places, they seem to be a relic of the past. I read somewhare the white house actually has a pipe oran installed its been there since the 20's. Lucille Ball was a master organist, which few people even realize, she was never given propes for the many talent she posesssed. Joan Baez owns several different Papa Johns franchises in the bay area, but ya didn't know that!
$100 says RM has an addiction PSA storyline next season on Glee!
Another $100 says it's Finn who helps a student realize he has a drug addiction and convinces him to seek help.
I'll see that $100 and say that RM doesn't renew Cory's contract for next season (it expires in May anyway). He'll join Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr. and Diana Agron as GLEE alums who totally vanish from the show.
Next season is GLEE's last anyway - the numbers are way down and next year will be 5 and out.
Lea has released a statement:
[quote] “I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this,” the 26-year-old Glee actress said of her boyfriend to People. “I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”
Bitch, puh-leeze! You enabled him and it's your fault he relapsed!
"Substance" likely means coke or horse, which would certainly explain his weight loss. Still, he's hidden it well; I haven't noticed any decline in his (admittedly minimal) acting skills on "Glee" this season.
Btw I doubt "Glee" has wrapped for the season, so I'm curious how the producers will handle it on the show.
Now Lea can be reunited with her true love, Jonathan Groff.
More like the mirror for Lea's true love.
r24 I'm stoned right now, and your bizarre off-topic post has me cracking up.
R31 = Cory Monteith, checking in from rehab
Does any one actually believe these two are a couple? They look so odd together.
Funny I thought there was no substance to that show...
He's seeking treatment for his sour milk breath.
If I had to be on that shit show GLEE I'd abuse drugs too.
Yeah, as if you'd be driven to drugs by having to show up to rehearse and film 15 min max of screen time per week (or two, since Fox has the show go on so many damn hiatus')and then get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for it, not to mention all the additional benefits and other possible income opportunities.
Really something to have to take drugs handle when you have no high school diploma and your previous source of income was literally that of a Walmart greeter and a cab driver.
Maybe he can come out of the closet when he's done. Ain't nobody buying his bearding situation with Lea Bitchelle
When GLEE is done with him, he will sink without a trace. He seems totally talent- and charisma-free and while not ugly, is certainly no great shakes in the looks department, either.
I wouldn't say that necessarily. He's definitely attractive, but in a more "cute" way. However, the better question, which applies to the majority of actors on Glee, is whether or not he has the capability and the range to fill substantial roles outside of Glee.
[quote] When GLEE is done with him, he will sink without a trace. He seems totally talent- and charisma-free and while not ugly, is certainly no great shakes in the looks department, either.
He is Canadian and he will always get roles in film and Tv series shoot in Canada. That is due to Canada's Content laws.
Any US film or TV series filmed in Canada must have 30% Canadian actors in it.
No Canadian actors, no film permit.
About two weeks ago, someone on the Glee thread posted that he was back on coke.
Rats, now he's going to get fat again! Well I guess fat is better than drug-addled.
Speaking of which, r24 and r31, wish I was hanging out with you guys last night!
R7 is right. Until recently, "BREAKING" was reserved for for important news events that were still to new to be sure of the facts. It has now become a boast that "I posted this thread first!!!" --used for stories that are neither important nor breaking. Hint: If you find out from a press release, it is not "breaking."
News Flash or Instant Bulletin should be used instead.
I'd drink if I was stuck on this mess of a show, too!
In other news, R44 doesn't like his hamburgers "broken."
Shouldn't he be seeking treatment in Quebec?
An ugly faggot is on drugs. Gee there's something you don't see every day
An ugly person posts hateful things. Gee there's something you don't see every day, R49, closet case. NOT!!!!!
Very sad to hear this. He's a nice guy, and I hope he gets the help he needs.
r47 and others are ignorant. DL used to be the place to get news that was literally NOWHERE ELSE! We always had the best shit before the media. Now, it's the Frau Forest here full of smelly fish cows.
Nobody gives three shits about him or that putrid show.

I don't know if you are a failed actor, but I do know that you are a sociopath.
I like Cory. Sending positive thoughts his way.
Why don't people going into rehab just STFU about it? They're all going to be in AA, where the second A stands for "Anonymous", believe it or not!
Does he wear a rug?
Looks like it.
In several pictures you can see where it meets the sides.
