Cory Monteith's Ex: He Kept Drug Problem a Secret

When Cory Monteith checked into rehab in April, everyone was shocked. Most people were surprised to learn he had a drug problem. He seemed so…okay.

We just reported that the coroner announced Cory’s cause of death and unfortunately he died from a deadly mixture of heroin and alcohol poisoning.

If you followed his career closely, you know that he has talked openly about his adolescent struggles with drugs. But to the rest of the world, including the girls he dated…he kept his drug issues under wraps.

“Cory kept me in the dark about his drug use," his ex-girlfriend Mallory Matoush told Us Weekly, "He told me about his teenage days and his past problems but he never used anything in front of me, ever."

Mallory dated Cory from June 2011 to about February 2012.

Obviously we don’t know IF he was clean and sober at the time, but it was only a little over a year ago…so he could very well have been doing drugs and hiding it from her. Either way, its a tragic end to a talented life.
