Lea Michele on finding love again following Cory Monteith's death
Singer and actress Lea Michele has opened up about finding love again with Matthew Paetz following the tragic and untimely death of her boyfriend, 'Glee' star Cory Monteith, who passed away in 2013 from a drugs and alcohol overdose.
During an interview with the October edition of Flare magazine, she opened up about making sure she was strong enough to love again before getting back into the dating world and knew she had to feel confident that she was ready:
"I wanted to make sure that I was OK with me, feeling strong and feeling happy on my own. I didn't want anybody to fill any holes for me—that sounds sexual! I wanted to make sure that I was a whole person again and that no one was coming into my life to put me back together. I needed to do that on my own."
She went onto add that dealing with Monteith's death and trying to move on was incredibly tough: "I worked very, very, very hard and I got back to that place where I was genuinely happy and strong and ready to live again and see the world and, you know, bring in more beautiful experiences. And that's when someone miraculously came into my life."
