Cory Monteith’s Dad “Devastated” After Missing Cremation
Cory Monteith has been cremated in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada, one day after autopsy reports revealed the Glee star died from a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol over the weekend.
Of course, there was one person not included in Cory’s final goodbye: The actor’s estranged father Joe Monteith. Joe, who divorced Cory’s mother Ann when their son was seven years old, says he was not invited to the private viewing.
The grieving father tells TMZ:
“I always loved both my sons and am going to miss Cory very, very much. I’m saddened at the fact that I couldn’t have been there to see my son before he was cremated.”
Joe claims his “suitcase was packed, I just needed to know where he was and nobody got back to me until after the fact.”
According to People magazine, Joe is “just totally, totally devastated,” and thought that his son’s drug habit “was totally behind him.”
