They really were in love.

Lea Michele broke her silence today and posted a photo on Instagram of herself and the late Cory Monteith with the caption; "Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart."

Up until now Michele has remained silent about her boyfriend's death. Right after the devastating shock, Michele's rep released this statement, "Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she's received from family, friends, and fans. ... (Michele and the Monteith family) are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory's family."

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13th after an accidental overdose involving heroin and alcohol. He was only 31 years old. He was best known for his role as Finn on FOX's Glee. That is where he met co-star and later girlfriend Lea Michele. The two had been dating since February of 2012 and looked like the perfect couple.

Glee creator Ryan Murphy stated that there will be a tribute episode for Monteith later this year.
