Lea Michele’s friends have revealed that the actress is now doing “much better” since the death of her boyfriend, Corey Monteith, last July, because she is concentrating intently on her work.
Michele echoed these sentiments by sharing an image with her Twitter followers from the set of her new music video over the weekend, writing, “A truly incredible day,” before adding the hashtag, “#dreamcometrue.”
It’s been a hard and long slog for Michele since the harrowing days and weeks after Monteith’s death. A close source to the actress confirmed to People that it was “so hard” for the Glee actress, before adding, “Lea is [now] doing much better.” However, she still continues to grieve for her co-star, who died after injecting a deadly mixture of alcohol and heroin, and to aid her recovery Michele has decided to embrace her work on Glee as well as her upcoming album.
On Monday morning, Michele showcased this enjoyment by Tweeting, “Happy Monday everyone. Early morning at #Glee today! Let’s get this week going.” However, despite her newfound confidence, Michele still isn’t ready to date.
On Saturday, Michele, who is still yet to release any information on her upcoming album, told her fans that she would be performing her new single for the first time “very soon,” before also tweeting, “At rehearsal now practicing w/ my band for my first live performance of my single! Which is happening very soon! #dreamcometrue.”
She also candidly revealed to ELLE magazine that “You’re Mine,” one of the songs on the record is dedicated to Monteith, confiding, “It make me so happy, this song. It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think of him, I play this.”
Michele also admitted that Kate Hudson assisted her just after the news of Monteith’s passing was revealed. “I called [Kate Hudson] and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters]’,” noted Michele. “She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”
