It wasn’t just Glee stars paying their respects, though. Mia Farrow added: "Rest in peace Cory Monteith. Sad, very very sad." Singer Taylor Swift - Monteith in 2010 - wrote on Twitter: "Speechless. And for the worst reason." Rihanna tweeted: "Cory Monteith, may your spirit be at peace, and may you fly with the angels... Heartbreaking, my prayers are with all of his loved ones!"

Monteith had a well documented drug and alcohol problem, and was battling it as early as the age of 19. In 2011 he told People magazine: "I don't want kids to think it's OK to drop out of school and get high, and they'll be famous actors too. But for those people who might give up: get real about what you want and go after it."
