Sources close to both Monteith and Michele say the 26-year-old actress immediately took over planning his memorial and that Monteith’s family isn’t involved at all.

Sources are saying it’s not surprising that Michele has his back in death because she closely looked after her boyfriend while he was alive, too. Michele tried to protect Monteith against substance abuse as much as she could and did everything she could to prevent him from relapsing. When he relapsed earlier this year, she was the one who took control and led him into rehab.
