'Feels like yesterday' Lea Michele's tribute to Corey breaks hearts

At the time of his death, the 31-year-old was in a relationship with co-star, Lea Michele, who last night paid tribute to her former partner on his four-year anniversary.

"4 years and it still feels like yesterday. love you more C", she wrote on Instagram along with a photo that shows her holding a black-and-white shot of her and Cory looking very much in love.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in December of that year - her first following Cory's death - Lea said: 'It's certainly been a pretty rough year, but I've been surrounded by such great people, such great family'.

Since his death, Michele has gotten several tattoos in honor of her late boyfriend. A few months before he died, Monteith entered rehab. "I am grateful and proud he made this decision".


That's not the only message in her post, though: it appears she's wearing the jacket donned by Monteith during his role as high school quarterback Finn Hudson.

Since the sixth run of Glee in 2015, Michele has become known for her role as Hester Ulrich in Scream Queens and has this year worked on TV series Dimension 404 and The Mayor. The star dated the actor from 2011 until his death in 2013.

Lea Michele is paying tribute to her late love Cory Monteith.
