Yesterday, June 11, we told you that Glee star Lea Michele (Rachel) was reportedly dating former gigolo Matthew Paetz, and although Lea nor Matthew have confirmed that they are actually in a relationship, a source confirmed to E! News that they are, in fact, an item. “She's having fun, but it's not extremely serious,” the source revealed, also confirming that the duo met on the set of Lea’s sexy “On My Way” video a few months ago.
Describing their first meeting, another source explains to Us Weekly, “She had just come from Coachella where she was missing Cory incredibly. [The video shoot] was a big party and a really therapeutic moment for her.” Lea seemed especially joyful while shooting the video in the California desert a few months ago, and in these photos you can even see Matthew smiling right behind her as they film.
While we’re glad Lea’s happy, we’re a bit troubled by reports that her new beau was working as a gigolo as recently as April of this year, especially since the looks to be her first relationship since losing former boyfriend Cory Monteith (Finn) nearly a year ago. Still, yet another source tells E! News that Matthew is a good egg. “He will be great arm candy and he is a very nice guy, and is a lot of fun."
And it looks like Lea, who has always been a relationship kinda gal, has that in common with her new man. "He is very into being in a relationship and loves being in one,” the source continued. “He is the kind of person who will want to be with that person all the time, but in a good way. And he is a good listener.”
We may have some questions about this relationship, but as long as Lea’s happy then who cares!
