Lea Michele (Rachel) may be “having fun” with her rumored new boyfriend Matthew Paetz, but apparently the actress had no idea that he worked as a gigolo for the always classy Cowboys4Angels. Once the Glee starlet learned of her beau’s uh, hobbies, via various internet reports, she was none too happy with him, at least if a new report from TMZ is to be believed.
As the video above explains, Lea confronted Matthew about his past as a gigolo because she was “furious” when the story broke earlier this week. The 27-year-old actress didn’t stay mad for long, however, because Matthew explained that he never worked as a paid male companion.
So what was this dude doing in his free time, you ask?
The studly life coach/relationship therapist reportedly told Lea that he “went on a few dates with female clients” as “research to understand what they go through and help coach men,” though there are other sources who dispute his phony-sounding reasoning. Lea apparently believed her man’s story, though we must admit that we are less confident in his explanation for his gigoloing ways.
Still, as the above video notes, Matthews Cowboys4Angels profile is no longer visible on the site and he apparently stopped “researching” once he and Lea began dating a few months ago and has sworn never to do it again.
