Cory Monteith’s Feud Rumor With ‘Glee’ Creator Ryan Murphy Debunked
Representative for the Finn Hudson depicter clarifies that the Canadian actor is not getting axed from the hit series following his claim about the cast’s low compensation.Cory Monteith has reportedly been involved in a feud with “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy. The Finn Hudson depicter was said to be in danger of being kicked out of the show after making a blatant claim that the cast are overworked and underpaid. However, a representative for the actor has spoken up to slam the issue.
Speaking to New York Post’s Page Six, the rep claimed, “For the record, [this] is completely fabricated, I would imagine the result of lingering rumors from last month but not based in truth whatsoever. Cory is back on set and very happy to be there.” A spokesman from the hit series also went on pouring cold water by adding that “there was no truth to the story.”
Rumor has it, Murphy has planned to ax Cory from a “Glee” spin-off project and threatened to halt the production of a comedy project in which Cory is set to play and co-produce with Bruce Nash and Robert Kosberg. A source said, “Cory was the show’s golden boy but has most recently been the most vocal member of the cast complaining.”
“He feels they are being overworked. They were filming and toured without any time to recover,” so the source added. “He’s become a de facto leader complaining to Ryan Murphy [for the cast], who they feel should give them a bigger share of the show’s success. But Ryan thinks Cory is causing trouble.”
Back in 2010, Cory revealed about the “Glee” cast compensation from their record album during a radio interview. At that time the Canadian actor said, “I got 400 bucks from it going No. 1. But you know what, that’s OK, because if I’m patient, and if this thing does really well, maybe I’ll see another 400 bucks.”
