Becca Tobin breaks silence since sudden death of her boyfriend
It's been nearly a month since the sudden death of Becca Tobin's boyfriend and the Glee actress had remained mum about the tragedy until this past weekend, when she posted a sweet photo of the two together on social media.
Tobin uploaded a pic to Instagram of herself with her arm around her boyfriend, Matt Bendik, on Aug. 2. "Thank you for all the love and support," the caption reads. "Matt was the most extraordinary man I knew and he will live in my heart forever."
Bendik, who was a prominent nightclub owner and managed venues on both the east and west coasts, was travelling for business with Tobin when he was found dead in a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, hotel room, according to TMZ. His body was discovered face down by a housekeeper a little after noon on Thursday, July 10. Authorities said their were no signs of foul play and no drug paraphernalia found at the scene.
Additionally, sources say that Bendik was not known for being a partier. "He was a hardworking business man, the nicest guy, very diligent, with such a vision," a source told Us Weekly around the time of Bendik's passing. "It is unbelievable. None of us knows what it could be. He was a guy that loved life and loved living."
The discovery of Bendik's body fell eerily close to the one-year anniversary of the death of Cory Monteith, an actor who was also a main character on Glee and was dating co-star, Lea Michele, at the time of his passing. Monteith, 31, was found dead on July 13, 2013, in a room at the Fairmont Pacific Room Hotel in Vancouver, the victim of "combined heroin and alcohol toxicity," according to the British Columbia coroner's office.
Although an autopsy was conducted on Bendik, 35, the cause of death still remains a mystery.
