Glee star Cory Monteith has been cremated in Vancouver after autopsy examinations were concluded and a private viewing ceremony … but his father Joe was not invited by the family.
Reports from TMZ indicate that Cory’s body was cremated on Tuesday after being released to his mother Ann on Monday. His mom then decided to hold a private viewing ceremony at the hospital, attended by his brother Shaun and girlfriend Lea Michelle before cremating him. But his father Joe – who is divorced from Ann – was only informed after the cremation … and he is ‘totally devastated’ about it.
‘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 told TMZ.
Cory Monteith was found dead inside a Vancouver hotel room on Saturday from what police concluded as ‘accidental overdose’ of heroin and alcohol. He was 31.
