“Glee” star Becca Tobin’s boyfriend was found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room on Thursday morning. Matt Bendik, 35, was traveling with Becca on business to the city and it was during this trip that a maid discovered his body in the room, according to MSN TV on July 11.
Bendik was the co-owner of AV Nightclub in Los Angeles, a popular venue for celebrities. He also ran several clubs around the country. He was also Director of Operations at DBA Nightclub, which posted a tribute to Bendik outside their club on Thursday night.
So far Bendik’s cause of death has not been released, but this death comes just days before the one year anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death. This 'Glee' star was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver last July. Monteith’s cause of death was a drug overdose,, according to USA Today.
Becca has played the role of Kitty Wilde on “Glee” for the last two years. It is reported that the couple were in Philadelphia on business when Bendik died. There is no word as to where Becca was when the body was discovered.
The couple went out on Wednesday night with friends and everything seemed normal. Just hours before Bendik’s body was found Becca had posted about a shoe giveaway from one of her favorite brands of shoes to her Instagram account. Everything was business as usual with the couple, so what happened to Bendik?
Mail Online has posted an array of pictures of the couple, who seemed very happy. Many of the pictures were candid and not the usual Hollywood couple poses, which gives you a better indication of what life was really like with this couple. They looked like soul mates.
One of the pictures posted by Tobin was in black and white and it was a throwback to the “the first time @mattbendik and I got our flirt on.” The pictures chronicle their life together. Such a sad tragedy, the loss of a life so young.
