The Jewish “Glee” star, 26, was in Mexico when she learned that Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on Saturday. “She was shaking when she heard the news,” a friend told the Daily News.

While Canadian-born Monteith, 31, who co-starred with Michele on “Glee,” openly struggled with substance abuse (his last rehab stint was in April), the cause of death is still unknown.

“We have interviewed everyone he was with the night before,” Vancouver Police Constable Brian Montague said Sunday. “For the most part, it has been turned to the coroner’s office, who will be determining the next steps with respect to establishing cause of death.”

The autopsy was scheduled for Monday.
