Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy led a private memorial for late Glee star Cory Monteith in Los Angeles on Thursday (25 July).
Glee creator Murphy and Monteith's girlfriend Michele, joined the show's cast and crew to remember the actor, who was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room on 13 July after taking a deadly combination of heroin and alcohol.
A statement from Glee's network 20th Century Fox Television read:"Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith.
"We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time."
According to Hollywood Life, Michele has been leaning on Murphy as she tries to come to terms with Monteith's sudden death.
"He is keeping her feet on the ground as they are talking business as well," a source said.
Murphy has previously revealed that all decisions regarding the future of Glee are being made with Michele's input - and it was her decision to only delay production for a week.
"She wants people to be better and get back to work," Murphy said. "She wants to be with people. The [Glee] family is her family."
In an interview given shortly before Monteith's death, Michele gushed about her feelings for the Canadian heartthrob.
She said: "It's more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with because we get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life. But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a co-worker."
She added: "It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him."
