Becca Tobin's boyfriend has been found dead.

Matt Bendik, who was on a business trip at the time, was reportedly discovered by his maid in his hotel room in Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (09.07.14).

Becca - who plays Kitty Wilde in the musical TV series -had joined her beau on the business trip, but it is currently unclear where she was when the 35-year-old nightclub owner's body was found.

According to, the couple had enjoyed a ''normal'' night with friends on Wednesday evening and returned to their hotel at some point.

The businessman - who was ''not known as a partier'' - ran several major clubs around the US and was Director of Operations at DBA Nightclub in Los Angeles.

The nightspot posted a tribute to Matt outside, with a board reading: ''We love you Matt.''

Friends are said to be ''shocked and devastated'' by the tragic news.

Becca, 28, joined 'Glee' for the fourth season as a recurring cast member in her first major acting role, and was promoted to a regular for season five.

Meanwhile, this Sunday (13.07.14) will mark the one-year anniversary of the death of Becca's co-star Cory Monteith, who died of a drugs overdose at the age of 31.
