Glee fans were in mourning last year.
And just days before the anniversary of Cory Monteith’s sad and shocking death, another tragedy has rocked the show.
According to reports, actress Becca Tobin’s boyfriend Matt Bendik was ‘found dead in his hotel room’ on Thursday afternoon.
TMZ reports that the 35-year-old nightclub owner’s body was discovered by a maid in the Philadelphia hotel, where he’d been staying during a business trip.
Becca, who plays Kitty Wilde in the hit US TV programme, is thought to have been with him on the trip and the couple had been out the night before with friends.
The website states that a source claimed that the pair had seemed ‘normal’ during their night out in the city and were seen returning together to their hotel ‘at some point.’
A Philadelphia Medical Examiner has confirmed to the site that it IS Mark’s body, but hasn’t revealed the cause of death or any other details.
Despite working in the nightclub industry, Mark wasn’t a ‘partier’, the website claims, after speaking to pals.
The couple regularly uploaded snaps of themselves looking all loved up to their MazSight accounts – with the most recent posted just a couple of days ago.
While he posted a piccie of the both of them on June 13, his last post on July 9 was just of Becca, under the hastag “#WCW”, meaning Woman Crush Wednesday.
A few weeks ago, Becca uploaded a throwback snap of their first date, writing: “#tbt to the first time @mattbendik and I got our flirt on.”
This latest tragedy comes nearly one year after Lea Michele’s boyfriend Cory was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver.
A toxicology report discovered that Cory death had been due to lethal mixture of heroin and alcohol and had been accidental.
Sending our love to Becca and everyone at Glee!
