Lea Michele has been left heartbroken by the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith.
In a statement to Life & Style, her rep tells the mag, "We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea's privacy during this devastating time."
Glee Star Cory Monteith Found Dead at 31
On Saturday, the 31-year-old actor's body was found in his room at Vancouver's Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. The cause of death has yet to be determined, but an autopsy is scheduled for today.
Cory and Lea, who met on the set of Glee in 2009, began dating a year-and-a-half ago. “I really think finding someone that you are best friends with is the secret," Lea told Life & Style about their relationship earlier this year. “I’m dating my celebrity crush!”

In late April, he completed the stint. “Sending out big love to everyone,” he tweeted. “It means the world to me:)”
