Dianna Agron was excluded from Glee’s tribute to Cory Monteith. The snub was reportedly part of an ongoing feud between Dianna Agron and Lea Michelle. Although the actress is no longer part of the cast, she and Monteith were friends.
The rumor was originally posted by Radar Online. The article suggests the information was provided by “a high-level source.” The source said there is a lot of tension between Agron and several members of the cast.
The source said Agron was never “a team player” and the cast was not interested in “sharing the glory” during the special tribute episode.
According to E Online, the rumors are false. Their sources said that Agron “is still very much a part of the Glee family” and the rumors are “not true at all.”
Although Agron did not participate in the tribute show, sources cite scheduling issues.
The former Glee star did attend Cory Monteith’s private memorial service. The service was limited to Monteith and Michele’s closest family and friends. Agron’s presence at the service suggests rumors of an ongoing feud were fabricated.
The memorial included an intimate crowd of 160 guests. The “celebration of life” took place at Paramount studios.
Cory Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13. The 31-year-old’s official cause of death was determined to be a lethal combination of alcohol and heroin.
The talented actor starred in the hit series Glee from 2009 to 2013. Monteith appeared in 88 episodes as Finn Hudson. Beginning the series as a high school quarterback, Hudson was eventually recruited to join the choir.
Monteith’s sudden and tragic death stunned family, friends, and thousands of fans. The cast and crew of Glee honored his passing with a tribute episode, which will air on Thursday.
Dianna Agron was excluded from the episode. However, the reason is simply speculation. She has not publicly discussed her absence.
