Glee star Becca Tobin’s boyfriend, Matt Bendik, was found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room Thursday night. He was 35.
According to TMZ, the circumstances around Bendik’s death are unknown. However, they’re told there is no evidence of foul play or suicide.
Bendik was in Philadelphia on a business trip and was accompanied by Tobin, who plays Kitty Wilde on Glee. The couple was reportedly out drinking with friends on Wednesday before they returned to the hotel. And on Thursday afternoon, a hotel maid found Bendik’s body.
According to the site, Bendik, who owns several popular nightclubs including AV and Voyeur/DBA in Los Angeles, was not a heavy partier and friends are shocked and devastated by his sudden death.
The death comes eerily close to the anniversary of Glee star Cory Monteith’s death, who was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room from a drug overdose.
This Sunday will mark one year since his death.
Our hearts are with Tobin and the rest of the Glee cast at this time.
DBA Hollywood has since posted a tribute on their Twitter page in honour of Bendik.
