Birthday Tribute To Glee Star Cory Monteith

Lea Michele has posted a birthday tribute to her late boyfriend, Glee star Cory Monteith.

"The biggest heart and most beautiful smile.. In all of our hearts.. We love you so.. Happy Birthday," she tweeted.

The tweet also featured a black-and-white photo of the couple enjoying a funny moment.

Monteith, who would have turned 32 on Sunday, was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room last July.

A coroner found the Canadian actor had died from an overdose of injected heroin and alcohol.

He had a history of illegal substance use with intermittent periods of rehabilitation and of abstinence from drugs.

Michele, 27, who dated Monteith in the TV show and off-screen for about a year, was devastated.

"He was not his addiction - unfortunately, it won. But that wasn't who he was," she told Seventeen's April issue.

"Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said 'I'm your boyfriend,' I loved every day.

"I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful."
