Let's get this straight: Lea Michele went from dating her cute costar Cory Monteith to a hired male gigolo?! Sounds completely crazy (and like a plot from Glee) but apparently, it's true, according to TMZ, who report the Glee starlet has been quietly seeing Matthew Paetz, pictured next to Lea above.
Matthew has been working for the site Cowboys4Angels, which lets lonely women pay for male companionship. In his profile under the alias "Christian," he's described as a life coach, dating expert and massage therapist, although his profile has since been pulled down. His rate is $350 an hour and $6,000 a weekend, and Lea first supposedly met him on the set on her "On My Way" video, which he starred in.
Apparently, since he started seeing Lea, he's taken a hiatus from working for the service. His last client was when he was hired for the Stagecoach music festival in April.
Lea's rep had no comment to TMZ. We know no one can ever replace Cory, but we just hope she's happy.
