The Glee actor was found dead in his hotel room last year after overdosing on a cocktail of drugs and alcohol.
Lea has since spoken candidly about the sad loss of her boyfriend and co-star who died aged just 31.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Lea revealed that she found the strength to get through such a tough time by looking back at her relationship with Cory.
She explained: “I somehow feel the insane love Cory and I had for each other morphed into this strength that I have right now.”
“There’s just something about knowing he’s watching everything I’m doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him.”
“I also have a safety net below me — if I fall or if it’s too much, my friends and family will be there to catch me.”
Meanwhile, Lea has moved on and is reportedly finally dating again after spending time focusing on her career.
Lea’s new man is said to be lifestyle coach Matthew Paetz, who she first met while filming the video for her single On My Way. The pair has been together for several months, according to TMZ.com.
