He was 31 years old when he passed away from an overdose of heroin and alcohol. His death was shocking to everyone, including millions of Glee fans. He’d completed a brief stint in rehab earlier in April 2013, but his death was still very unexpected.
Every year on this day, a flood of social media posts are posted honoring the late actor, but everyone waits for when his ex-girlfriend Michele to post hers. She’s always doing little things to honor Monteith, like taking Glee props that remind her of him. Last year she posted a cute photo of Monteith walking on the beach.
This year, she posted her message on Twitter. Her tweet reads, “Hard to believe it’s been 4 years… We miss you C… love you more” with a red heart emoji. She also shared a black and white photo of the two of them.
