Glee star Becca Tobin has been dealing with a terrible loss this past month. On July 10th the nightclub owner Matt Bendik tragically passed away in his Philadelphia hotel room of causes unknown. There was an autopsy performed, however that was inconclusive. TMZ was the first outlet to announce the passing of Becca’s boyfriend.
It is understandable that Becca has taken time away from the spotlight all forms of social media, however today she took to instagram to share her gratitude to all of the support she has been receiving she posted this caption with an adorable picture of the duo, “Thank you all for the love and support. Matt was the most extraordinary man I knew and he will live in my heart forever.” The night of his death, one of the nightclubs (DBA) he was a director at put this message in front of their building, “We love you Matt.”
Unfortunately Becca isn’t the only Glee star who has tragically lost a loved one, Lea Michele also lost her boyfriend on and off screen, Cory Monteith, to a drug overdose. Matt Bendik tragically passed mere days before the one year anniversary of Cory Monteith’s passing. This made the situation even more heartbreaking, and seemed to resonate even more with fans and loved ones.
It seems as if Becca has been able to lean on Lea Michele some in the wake of her boyfriend’s death. The two were photographed together a few days after Matt’s death. Here’s to sending nothing but love and support Becca’s way. It is unfathomable what she has been dealing with since Matt’s passing.
