Cory Monteith - No Glee For Cory Monteith, As Actor Heads To Rehab

The Glee actor Cory Monteith has checked into rehab, according to a story from People. Apparently, the 30 year-old admitted himself into rehab voluntarily, to deal with substance addictions. He’s been known to have suffered from issues relating to addiction in the past and his rep told People that he has “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction.”

His rep added “he graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.” Back in 2011, Monteith spoke about past issues that he had had with substance abuse and revealed that he had been in rehab before, when was aged just 19. During the interview, he explained that he hoped that being public and honest about his rehab would help other people going through similar struggles. “I don't want kids to think it's okay to drop out of school and get high, and they'll be famous actors, too," he said, back in 2011. "But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.”

In another report, from Deadline, a spokesperson from the Fox network revealed that the show has two more episodes to shoot in the current series. “Cory is a beloved member of the Glee family and we fully support his decision to seek treatment,” said the show’s producers 20th Century Fox. ““Everyone at the show wishes him well and looks forward to his return.”
