Glee actress Lea Michele paid tribute to her co-stars, Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith. Naya’s body was found on the seventh death anniversary of Cory. The body was recovered from a California lake. Naya had been missing since last week after a boat accident.
Lea Michele posted pictures of Naya and Cory on her Instagram story. The pregnant actress was once in a relationship with Cory, who passed away in 2013. He was 31 years old when he died of an accidental drug overdose.
Lea Michele has deleted her Twitter account due to negative comments targeted towards her. But she remembered her late co-stars by sharing their black and white pictures on Instagram.
The first photo was of Naya Rivera as she looks down, standing at the backstage of Glee.
The second picture was of Cory Monteith. He is seen standing on a Central Park bridge, holding flowers.
The third picture showed Lea with the late artists and other Glee members. They are seen facing a beach while sitting on a bench.

It was not easy for the fans to accept the heart-breaking co-incidence.
A fan wrote, “So sad that it’s been confirmed Naya has passed away and 7 years today since Cory’s passing. Now there [sic] both shining stars and angels in Heaven, Sleep tight and Godbless #RIPNayaRivera #NayaRivera #CoryMonteith.’ With a picture of the co-stars in front of a Christmas tree.
Another wrote, “My heart breaks for her family and all her friends and to be found on this day holds pain still for many as Cory Monteith was found dead :(.”
