As hard as it is to believe that Cory Monteith's father was unable to see his son before cremation, Joe Monteith does confirm that he did not get to see Cory after his tragic death. Joe remembers the moment when he first heard of the tragedy: ?When they did break the news to my wife, she almost fell over, in fact I had to grab her. And I did ask them again what was that you said? It didn?t really sink in." The 31-year-old actor died at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver after mixing heroin and alcohol. Demi Lovato has had her fair share of struggles but the topic of addiction was brought to the forefront once again, given the tragic death of Glee's Cory Monteith. The Made in the USA singer explained that it only takes "one moment of vulnerability" to relapse. She added: "The main person in my thoughts is Lea [Michele]. I am praying for her so hard and I love her so much. I'm wishing her a lot of strength right now." A source tells blogger Perez Hilton that actor Cory Monteith went back to drugs in Vancover saying that the Glee star fell in with the "wrong crowd" ? and onto bad habits.
