The boyfriend of “Glee” star Becca Tobin, who has portrayed Kitty Wilde on the show for the past two seasons, has died. 35-year-old Matt Bendik was found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room, according to media reports.
He was traveling with Tobin on business in the city, as reported by TMZ. The site says that Bendik’s body was found by a hotel maid on Thursday afternoon.

Bendik ran several night clubs around the country. He was a co-owner of AV Nightclub in Los Angeles, as well as the Director of Operations at DBA Nightclub. The latter posted a tribute to Bendik outside the club Thursday night.
Bendik’s freinds took to Twitter to express their remorse, while the hashtag #staystrongbecca started trending. Tobin’s representatives did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Cory Monteith, who died in a hotel room in Vancouver from a drug overdose.
