The boyfriend of “Glee’’ actress Becca Tobin was reportedly found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room.

According to a report by TMZ, the body of Matt Bendik, a 35-year-old nightclub owner, was discovered by a hotel maid on Thursday afternoon. Sources for the website said that Bendik was in town on a business trip, accompanied by Tobin.

The couple was allegedly spotted out and about with friends the previous night.

Bendik owned several nightclubs in the Los Angeles area, including DBA in Hollywood, which posted a loving tribute message to its owner on the club’s notice board.

The sad news comes just days before the one-year anniversary of the death of “Glee’’ star Cory Monteith. The 31-year-old actor was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room from an apparent drug overdose on July 13, 2013.

It’s been a bad few weeks for the “Glee’’ cast, as just last week, Lea Michele and Chris Colfer both had their Twitter accounts hacked. Also, the Fox show’s upcoming final season was recently trimmed down to 13 episodes, instead of the planned 22 episodes.
