Lea Michele 'can't cope without Cory'

Lea Michele

Lea Michele reportedly doesn't think it is possible to come to terms with losing the love of her life.

The 26-year-old actress had been dating her Glee co-star for more than a year when he died suddenly from an overdose of heroin and alcohol on July 13.

Friends of the pretty actress are worried she'll never recover from losing the love of her life.

Lea is reportedly in a permanent state of shock and struggles to contain her emotions.

"It seems so unfair and impossible to process. She's furious one minute and wracked with guilt the next," the insider explained. "I think she's wondering how she'll ever get over his death - and if that's even possible."

Details of how Lea discovered the news about 31-year-old Cory's tragic death have since emerged.

The actress had just returned from a trip away with her girlfriends when she found out.

"Lea had just got back from a holiday in Mexico when she got the call," an insider told UK magazine Look. "She was with friends, thank God, because she went into shock. Her mum, Edith, dropped everything to be with her but there's nothing anyone can say at this point."

Lea's girlfriends were on hand to help her after the initial call came through and she's since been finding support with Cory's relatives. Several months before he passed away Cory admitted himself into a rehab facility and appeared to be doing well. Those closest to him are struggling to comprehend how he could have died.

"Lea's been with Cory's family since the cremation [last week]," the source continued. "None of them can believe this could happen. She still keeps asking if there has been a mistake - it's incredibly sad. And of course she's torturing herself with what ifs, saying she wished she'd made Cory come on holiday with her. But honestly, no one around Lea had any idea this was coming. None of them could've predicted this would happen. Cory seemed to be doing so well."

Cory had been open about his battle with drug and alcohol addiction, which had seen him receive professional treatment when he was 19.
