Lea Michele honors late ‘Glee’ costar Cory Monteith on his birthday

The curtains may have closed on Glee, but that didn’t stop star Lea Michele from tweeting in honor of her late ex-boyfriend and costar Cory Montieth on Monday.

Michele tweeted in honor of her late boyfriend’s 33rd birthday, amid a day of promoting her new Fox show, Scream Queens

Monteith died in July 2013 from a drug overdose before the fifth season of Glee began filming. Monteith and Michele were both part of an on-screen and off-screen romance.

Fellow Glee star Mark Salling also commemorated the day with a tweet, as well as many fans.
