‘Glee’ Star Becca Tobin’s Boyfriend Found Dead in Hotel Room

The 15th Annual Trevor Project Benefit

In shocking and sad news, ‘Glee’ star, Becca Tobin’s boyfriend, Matt Bendik, was found dead in his Philadelphia hotel room yesterday.  The circumstances of his death are unknown.  TMZ reports:

Sources close to the couple tell us Bendik — a 35-year-old nightclub owner — was in Philly on a business trip. We’re told Tobin was not in Philly when he died.

A hotel maid found Bendik’s body Thursday at around 1 PM. Law enforcement sources say the housekeeper found the body on the bed, face down.

Police are calling it a “sudden death” and they do not believe foul play was involved. They also say there’s no evidence of suicide. And no weapons were found.

We’re told no drugs or drug paraphernalia were found in the room. We know the detective’s incident report makes no mention of medications in the room. And the report makes no mention of alcohol.

Bendik was last seen by a manager at a club in Philly, just before midnight Wednesday.

Bendik ran several major clubs around the country, but especially in Los Angeles … where he was the Director of Operations at DBA Nightclub. He also was a co-owner of AV Nightclub.

We’re told Bendik was not known as a partier, and friends are shocked and devastated by his sudden death.

Calls to Tobin’s reps have not been returned.

One eerie twist — Sunday will mark one year since the death of Cory Monteith … who died in a Vancouver hotel room from a drug overdose.

How sad!  I’m sure we will find out soon enough what the cause of death was.  It would be doubly eerie and sad if it was due to substance abuse as in Monteith’s case- though there doesn’t seem to be any indication that it was at this point.  Poor Becca Tobin and the friends and family close to the deceased.  So young, so shocking, so sad.  I’m sure Lea Michele will have a great deal of sympathy for her costar given the circumstances.

Lea Michele getting her own ‘Glee’ spinoff!

The Peoples Choice Awards Takes Over Los Angeles

It was announced last month that ‘Glee’ would end after the sixth season. So what’s next for creator Ryan Murphy and the rest of the ‘Glee’ cast? Ryan is creating a spin-off for actress Lea Michele.

‘This is definitely happening,’ an insider told Radar Online, adding that it ‘will be announced soon.’

‘They’re making the deals now and it also presents a viable exit plan for the main Glee series itself — in that some of its core cast would also migrate to the Lea Michele project as Glee is showing signs of aging.’

This spin-off buzz comes four months after Glee star Cory Monteith tragically succumbed to his heroin and alcohol addictions in a Vancouver hotel room.

The hit show’s Finn tribute episode dedicated to Cory drew in 7.4million viewers, but left the cast and crew in a tailspin.

Monteith’s death deeply affected his on and off-screen love Lea, who found herself in the middle of a media storm.

Luckily Glee guest star Kate Hudson came to the grieving 27-year-old’s rescue.

‘I called her and said, I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters],’ Michele told Elle magazine.

‘She was like, “Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.” Like it was nothing.

‘She let my family stay there and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favorite juices. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.’

The fifth season of Glee continues November 7 on Fox. Will you miss ‘Glee’ when it’s gone?

Lea Michele posts somber picture from the set of ‘Glee’ on Twitter

Lea Michele says she’s happy to be back “home.”

The ‘Glee’ actress returned to the set of Glee, three weeks after the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith. Yesterday afternoon the actress tweeted her first photo from the set of ‘Glee’ as she begins to film the upcoming fifth season.

“Feels so good to be home…#GleeSeason5,” the 26-year-old wrote.

In the picture Michele is seen sitting on a trunk at the foot of her bed. The picture looks so sad, doesn’t it?

In other ‘Glee’ news, they have finally revealed how they are going to address Cory’s absence on the show. “The third episode will write Finn out of the show,” Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly revealed. “That episode will deal directly with the incidents involved with Cory’s passing and the drug abuse in particular.”

Rumor has it – it was Lea who wanted Cory’s character Finn to go out in the same way he did in real life.

What do you think of plans to have him OD on ‘Glee’?
