After the shocking and tragic loss of her boyfriend and former Glee co-star Cory Monteith, Lea Michele has so far remained silent except for statements released by her publicist.
However, the actress spoke out herself for the first time yesterday on Twitter, thanking fans for their "enormous love and support" alongside a loving snap of the couple on what looks like a romantic holiday before his death.
She wrote beside the photo, "Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart."
Since the Glee star uploaded the message yesterday evening, it has been re-tweeted by thousands of fans and many have sent their condolences to the star.
Lea was left devastated when she was told of her late boyfriend's death, an accidental overdose of heroin and alcohol, whilst having a girls' night in. She has since been grieving with Cory's family.
