July is not a good month for the Glee cast. Just shy of one year after Cory Monteith‘s sudden death, it’s happening all over again. TMZ and other outlets report that Becca Tobin‘s boyfriend has been found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room.
Becca, who has played Kitty on the past two season of Glee, and her boyfriend Matt Bendik, a nightclub owner, were in Philly on a business trip when the accident occurred. He and Becca went out with some friends on Wednesday night to celebrate. Then, on Thursday afternoon, Matt’s body was found in the hotel room. There is no indication that it was a suicide or drug related—at this point, noone knows the cause of death.
None of Becca’s Glee co-stars have made statements yet, nor has Matt’s family. Stay tuned for more updates as they come in.
