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.”

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 303/31/2013

What drug is he on?

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 403/31/2013

Wow, I can hardly believe it!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 503/31/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 603/31/2013

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

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 703/31/2013

He "graciously" asks for respect? Pompous ass.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 803/31/2013

BREAKING: R7 doesn't understand how things operate around here.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 903/31/2013

He looks better than ever. I might have to start watching GLEE again.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1003/31/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1103/31/2013

Are you new, R7? Your second sentence should have been a clue to the use of "BREAKING" on the Datalounge. You're an embarrassment.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1203/31/2013

Well people will be tuning in now to see if they can see the " signs" of his addiction.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1303/31/2013

So is someone going to replace him as Mr. Shuster?

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1403/31/2013

Time so change your tampon r7.

One wasn't meant to last 10 days.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1503/31/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1603/31/2013

Don't worry R16, lots of other people failed to make it as actors, you aren't the only one you bitter biatch.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1704/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1804/01/2013

His bitch tits have gone away over the last few years. You can trace his history on that site.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 1904/01/2013

I rape grandparents!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2004/01/2013

What kind of "substances"?

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2104/01/2013

I like him, hope rehab helps him.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2204/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2304/01/2013

$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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2504/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2604/01/2013

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!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2704/01/2013

"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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2804/01/2013

Now Lea can be reunited with her true love, Jonathan Groff.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 2904/01/2013

More like the mirror for Lea's true love.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3004/01/2013

r24 I'm stoned right now, and your bizarre off-topic post has me cracking up.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3104/01/2013

R31 = Cory Monteith, checking in from rehab

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3204/01/2013

Does any one actually believe these two are a couple? They look so odd together.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3304/01/2013

Funny I thought there was no substance to that show...

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3404/01/2013

He's seeking treatment for his sour milk breath.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3504/01/2013

If I had to be on that shit show GLEE I'd abuse drugs too.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3604/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3704/01/2013

Maybe he can come out of the closet when he's done. Ain't nobody buying his bearding situation with Lea Bitchelle

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3804/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 3904/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4004/01/2013

[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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4204/01/2013

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!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4304/01/2013

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."

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4404/01/2013

News Flash or Instant Bulletin should be used instead.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4504/01/2013

I'd drink if I was stuck on this mess of a show, too!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4604/01/2013

In other news, R44 doesn't like his hamburgers "broken."

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4704/01/2013

Shouldn't he be seeking treatment in Quebec?

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 4804/01/2013

An ugly person posts hateful things. Gee there's something you don't see every day, R49, closet case. NOT!!!!!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5004/01/2013

Very sad to hear this. He's a nice guy, and I hope he gets the help he needs.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5104/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5204/01/2013

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.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5404/01/2013

I like Cory. Sending positive thoughts his way.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5504/01/2013

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!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5604/01/2013

Does he wear a rug?

Looks like it.

In several pictures you can see where it meets the sides.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5704/02/2013

Cory needs to come out, that's probably why he's doing drugs.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5804/02/2013

[quote]Cory needs to come out, that's probably why he's doing drugs.

Because there are no openly gay people with drug problems.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 5904/02/2013

What would Cory Monteith do for a bag of coke?

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6004/02/2013

Fuck Lea Michele for one, R60.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6104/03/2013

Supposedly he's out of rehab and back with Lea.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6204/26/2013

This is one man who will never be anything but ugly without extensive plastic surgery.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6304/26/2013

Since when is cock a substance?

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6404/26/2013

R64 If it is, then I'm ready to admit to substance abuse!

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6504/26/2013

RIP Cory.

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6607/18/2013

Oops

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6707/18/2013

How is his rehab going? Has anyone heard if he's out yet?

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6807/18/2013

[quote]How is his rehab going? Has anyone heard if he's out yet?

Well you know it never takes the first few times...

by Lea Michele, wondering how this affects MEreply 6907/19/2013

I had a dear friend who checked into rehab. And then he died.
