The actress played cheerleader Quinn Fabray on the hit FOX series, with her character enjoying an on-off relationship with Monteith's Finn Hudson throughout the first few seasons of the show.
However, Agron has not appeared in the most recent fifth season of Glee, including the much talked about tribute to Cory entitled The Quarterback.
Speaking to Digital Spy about her absence from the poignant episode, the 27-year-old revealed: "What I'm surprised about is how big that story has become. It's something that's involving our friend."
She continued: "It's just interesting how the press loves to pick up a negative story - whether it's true or not - and run with it."
Rumours had surfaced that Agron would not be returning for the tribute episode because of friction between her and others in the cast, but the blonde beauty dismissed the report as "very disheartening and very sad."
Dianna said: "It's very bittersweet not being there every day like I once was."
She added: "On top of that to have things like this flying around, it makes me sad."
Agron is currently promoting her new film The Family and has spoken fondly of her late co-star Cory during publicity engagements, recently describing him as "one of the most amazing people I've ever met."
Monteith passed away in July as a result of mixed drug toxicity involving heroin and alcohol. He was 31 years old.
