Glee's Cory Monteith has died in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The news broke around 2 AM last night, and a rep confirmed to E!: "We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss."

His body was discovered after he was late to check out of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel and cause of death is as yet unconfirmed. Monteith had been public about his struggle with drugs on and off since he was 13, and he checked himself voluntarily into rehab in April with the support of girlfriend and Glee co-star Lea Michele. He is thought to have been alone at the time of his death. Shocking and horrible.

Jane, you ignorant slut.

The thing about quitting whatever you're addicted to, well, it's that there's often no apparent ready substitute for self-medicating that inner pain. There's a hole in your life that addiction used to fill, but now nothing fills it and it... it's just empty. Staring at you. That's why people relapse. Add in a close relative or friend or two you used to do it with, who doesn't understand why you quit, and it just sucks.

I hope Cory's at peace now.
