Fame can be a drug in itself. And according to friends of the late Cory Monteith, he never quite adjusted to the glittering claws of Hollywood. We now know his cause of death to be a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol and sources reveal how the burden of fame could have possibly encouraged his relapses: "Fame was hard for him. It was something he knew he deserved but somehow he never quite knew how to handle. The cast of Glee worked hard and partied hard. These aren't high school kids. They are adults who enjoyed the perks of fame."
