The latest as of 9am Sunday.... So many broken hearted fans this morning... After a month-long stay, he exited the facility and was spotted by the paparazzi vacationing in Mexico with Michele, 26. In June, the two walked the red carpet in Los Angeles at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, a high-profile charity event. Because of his rehab stint, Monteith did not appear on the final episodes of the fourth "Glee" season. His character, Finn Hudson, was last seen on an episode that first aired in April in which he and Glee club leader Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) agree to team up to lead the singing group to a regional competition. Monteith had been open about his earlier struggles with addiction. In a 2011 interview with Parade he spoke about his decision to check himself into rehab at age 19 after years of using "anything and everything, as much as possible. I had a serious problem." Shortly into LePard's remarks Saturday night, the acting police chief paused to offer his condolences to the friends and family of the Canadian-born actor. "As was the case in countless homes, I watched 'Glee' regularly with my daughters, and I know there will be shock and sadness in many households with the news of his tragic death," he said. Monteith was active on Twitter as late as Friday, commenting on SyFy's "Sharknado" television movie. "what the crap is Sharknado," he wrote at 1:24 p.m. on July 12. "oh. IT'S A SHARK TORNADO." Monteith, a native of Calgary, Alberta, rose to fame when he landed the role of Finn on "Glee" in 2009. The actor quickly endeared himself to fans with his portrayal of an aloof, kind-hearted high school quarterback who also had a love for singing.
