Cory Monteith’s father has admitted that he didn’t communicate with his son for the majority of his life.

The Glee actor passed away in July 2013 from a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol. Now that the star’s estate is being finalised, his dad Joe Monteith has confessed to not having the closest relationship with his son.

'Cory Monteith was a great leader as a character and person in real life'

In new court documents obtained by TMZ, Joe reportedly admitted to not communicating with his son from the time he was "nine years old until his twenties" as well as missing child support payments.

His admission has led Cory’s mother Ann McGregor to claim that under the law, Joe should then be blocked from receiving any money from their child’s accounts.

The documents also reveal that Cory’s estate is worth $810 000 (R9,381 million) --and his old roommate, Zachary Larson, will be in charge of paying off various debts which include $80K in taxes and another $15K to unnamed creditors.

The 31-year-old didn’t have a will at the time of his passing so the majority of his estate will go to his mother.

While it’s more than 18 months since the young star died, his co-stars still feel the void he left behind.

“Cory Monteith was a great leader as a character and person in real life. It's a big, obvious hole. I still think about him all the time," Mark revealed to People magazine in November.

"He was kind of like the quarterback of the show, which sounds cliché because the [tribute] episode was called that, but he was kind of like that in real life."
