Glee Star Becca Tobin’s Boyfriend Matt Bendik Found Dead In Philadelphia Hotel Room
Just three days before the one year anniversary of Cory Monteith’s tragic death, another Glee star was faced with the same devastating news. Matt Bendik, the boyfriend of Becca Tobin who plays Kitty Wilde on the show, was found dead in his Philadelphia hotel room on Thursday afternoon. According to TMZ, a hotel maid found the 35-year-old’s body, but the specific cause of death is unknown.
Apparently Becca was with Matt on the business trip to Philly, but it’s unclear where she was at the time of his death. The duo was out with friends on Wednesday night, and apparently nothing seemed wrong.
Philadelphia police are currently referring to the tragedy as a “sudden death,” as there were no signs of foul play, drugs or weapons involved.
Although Becca hasn’t made a statement yet, Gleeks are using Twitter to show their support for the actress by using the hashtags #PrayForBecca and #StayStrongBecca.
