Lea Michele pays tribute to fallen Glee costars Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith in never-seen-before photos

GLEE star Lea Michele has paid tribute to her late co-stars Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith.

On Monday, Naya was confirmed to have died during a tragic boating trip; it came seven years to the day that Cory died age 31 from an overdose.

Simply sharing three black and white pictures, Lea posted a behind the scenes pictures of Naya from what appeared to be on the set of Glee, and a picture of Cory in a suit holding a bouquet of flowers.

A third picture showed the cast looking out across the ocean from a pier.

Cory played the lead role of Finn Hudson, a quarterback and glee club student, on Fox’s musical dramedy from 2009 until his death at age 31 in 2013.

The search for Naya, who starred as Santana Lopez on the series, concluded on Monday when a recovery team found her body in Lake Piru after she'd been reported missing last week.

Her fellow co-star Amber Riley later blasted fans and told them to “show some respect” and that the entire cast was “devastated” over the news of Naya.

She tweeted: “Show some respect. All our energy is going toward helping find Naya and praying for her safe return and for her family.

“No one owes anyone online a performance of grief. This is very real and devastating. Focus on Naya and her family. Not us. We don’t matter right now.”

Lea and Naya were allegedly in a feud for years while filming the hit Fox television show, and Naya even addressed the feud in her memoir.

She wrote: "We are both strong willed and competitive – not just with each other but with everyone – and that's not a good mixture.

"As Santana moved from a background character to one with bigger plot lines and more screen time I think Rachel – erm, I mean Lea – didn't like sharing the spotlight."

On Wednesday, July 8, Naya disappeared while on Lake Piru in California with her four-year-old son, Josey.

Josey told police that his mom "jumped in" the water but never came back up.

Five days later on Monday July 12, local police confirmed a body had been found and identified as that of Naya.
