It’s rumored that Taylor and Cory dated for a short time in 2010.  Before Cory began dating Lea Michele, his Glee co-star, rumors swirled that he and Taylor were dating. When Ellen DeGeneres asked Cory about the rumors, he brushed it off, but couldn’t hide his blushing face:

The photo above shows Taylor and Cory having dinner together in January of 2010 at a pre-Grammy party.  At the time, people at the party say Taylor and Cory were holding hands and grazing into each others' eyes.

Cory was found in his hotel room by staff after he failed to check out on time. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
