Lea Michele used the death of ex-boyfriend Cory Monteith to get as much publicity for her shitty solo album as possible, but now – less than a year after Cory’s passing – she’s already moved on to a new man. That’s right, Lea’s got herself a former gigolo whom she met on the set of her video for ‘On My Way (to Bone Town)’. The song is actually just called ‘On My Way’, but whatever.
From TMZ (via News.com.au):
TMZ reports that the Glee actress’ boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, used to work as an escort for hire.
Paetz has worked under the alias Christian for Cowboys4Angels, a company that offers male companions for women and is featured on Showtime’s Gigolos.
Although his profile is no longer visible on the website, it indicates he’s a life coach, dating expert and a massage therapist.
Spending time with Paetz isn’t cheap. The gossip site claims he charges $US350 for one hour to $US6000 for a weekend. Interested parties can book Paetz for $US17,500 for an entire week.
No shade on sex workers of any gender – get that money, etc. However, I’m a little shocked that Lea, who has a bit of a squeaky clean, almost too perfect image, would go for someone like Matthew. You’d think she’d be worried that he might tarnish her princess reputation. Then again, she is trying really, really hard to break into a sexy popstar persona (which will never happen), so perhaps she’s choosing her boyfriends to fit that criteria.
