Posted: Updated:

Matt Bendik, boyfriend of "Glee" star Becca Tobin, has been reportedly found dead in his hotel room. He was 35.

TMZ was first to report that Bendik, a nightclub owner, was found dead by the hotel maid on Thursday, July 10. Bendik was in Philadelphia with Tobin, who plays Kitty Wilde on the Fox series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a friend of Bendik's has confirmed the news.

Though the Philadelphia Medical Examiner confirmed to TMZ that Bendik's body was found, the cause of death has not been disclosed.

The day before he was reportedly found dead, Bendik posted a photo of Tobin to his Instagram and Twitter accounts.

DBA, one of the Hollywood nightclubs Bendik worked at, posted this photo to their Twitter account late Thursday night:

The Huffington Post has reached out to Tobin's reps for comment and will update this story once one comes through.

Almost one year ago to the day, "Glee" suffered another tragedy when Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room. He was 31. Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on "Glee," died of a heroin and alcohol mix, according to the British Columbia Coroners Service.
