Lea Michele has a new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, who just so happens to have worked as a male escort for nearly a year. No biggie, right? The problem is, Lea apparently didn’t know about this and just thought he was a dating coach… and still does think that, thanks to his lies.
Lea Michele is standing by her man … TMZ has learned the “Glee” actress has decided to keep dating new BF Matthew Paetz because she’s convinced he’s no gigolo — he just coaches ‘em.
Sources close to the couple tell us … Lea was PISSED after we broke the story about Paetz’s involvement with Cowboys4Angels — a website that offers male “companionship” — and confronted him about it.
We’re told Matthew copped to going on a few dates with female clients … but told Lea he only did it as research — so he could understand what the gigolos go through and coach them through it.
This guy is good … ’cause we’re told Lea actually bought it, and Matt promised he’d never do it again.
Our sources tell us Lea’s not getting the full story … because Paetz has had more than just “a few” dates while working as a gigolo for almost a year.
First of all, how do you NOT KNOW THESE THINGS about the person you’re dating? Sure, if you’re just an average Joe, it might be easy to hide. However, Lea is a celebrity who presumably has a team of PR people constantly watching her every move to assure a) no one is fucking her over in any way and b) nothing is going to damage her career/stop their flow of money. WHO DROPPED THE BALL HERE?
Also, of course this special snowflake got uptight about his past as a gigolo. Pretty princess would NEVER condone such dirty, disgusting work, would she?
