Lea Michele’s new boyfriend is an ex-gigolo

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.

Here’s the new boy toy (it’s a screenshot from the video):

Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison used to date

Damn, Lea Michele gets around, it seems. While she’s best known for her totally real and not at all played up for the press relationship with Glee co-star Cory Monteith, it seems she was also involved with another castmate prior: Mr. Schue himself, Matthew Morrison. She talked about the relationship in her new biography, Brunette Ambition (gag me):

“When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time. I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we’d actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat.”

Ugh, how is it that a single paragraph can sound so obnoxious? “A Broadway beat”? Who talks like that? I guess Broadway stars? She’s the worst.

Anyhow, not surprised these two dated, though I’m surprised they could both fit in one room given the size of their gigantic heads. The amount of ego between the two of them is unparalleled.

Lea Michele’s still exploiting Cory Monteith’s death

Yesterday would have been Cory Monteith‘s 32nd birthday – a sad occasion for those who loved the Glee actor and are still struggling with his death. One person who’s using her grief as a giant career catalyst is Lea Michele, who seems to be banking on public sympathy for her tragic loss of love to sell more of her shitty albums.

Her latest move was to post a touching tribute to Cory (with the above photo) on her Twitter page yesterday. That should get a few more copies of Louder off the shelves, eh?


I hate to be so callous, and we all express grief difficulty, but this all seems so contrived to me and the more she talks about it, the more ridiculous/insincere she sounds. Not feeling it, Lea. Let Cory rest in peace.
