If Finn from Glee always looked a little dopey, it’s cos he was strung out on the good stuff, I guess. It looks like singing and dancing about your problems wasn’t enough for Cory Monteith, who’s decided to check into rehab for substance abuse problems for a second time. Having first undergone rehab at the age of 19, the now 30-year-old has voluntarily (aka someone probably gave him an ultimatum) checked into a drug treatment facility.
The actor “has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his rep tells PEOPLE. “He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Also, everyone can rest easy as his real life love affair with Lea Michele (my arch enemy, but that’s a story for another day) will see another day! Much like her character Rachel Berry, Lea loves the spotlight and would never let a chance to hog it go to waste, so she released her own statement:
“I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”
Well, thank goodness for that. In all seriousness, Cory seems like an alright dude and good on him for getting some help again. Hopefully this time it’ll work.
