Glee Star Lea Michele Dating a Gigolo? Life Imitates Art? (VIDEO)


Life is imitating art if this TMZ item claiming that Glee star, Lea Michele, is dating a guy who works as a gigolo.

Lea Michele is getting for free what other women pay good money for — her new beau has been moonlighting as a gigolo.

Lea has been quietly dating Matthew Paetz for the last few months … she has very consciously kept the relationship on the down low.

Sources close to the couple tell us … Matthew has been a hired gun for Cowboys4Angels under the alias, Christian.

Cowboys4Angels — which offers male “companionship” to lonely women — is featured on Showtime’s, “Gigolos.”

According to the website … Matthew is a certified life coach, dating expert and massage therapist … charging $350 for one hour and up to $6,000 for a weekend. For $17,500 you can get a whole week.

Matthew’s profile is now hidden on the site.

We’re told Lea and Matthew met on the set of her music video, “On My Way.”

Sources tell us … Matthew most recently took on a client for a weekend during the Stagecoach music festival in April. He’s gone on hiatus since he started dating Lea.

Reps for both Lea and Cowboys4Angels had no comment.

In Glee season 4, Lea’s character, Rachel Berry. dates a fellow NYADA student, Brody (Dean Geyer). When she finds out he works as a male escort to the ladies to earn tuition money, she freaks out on him. ¬†That’s after her ex-boyfriend, Finn (Cory Monteith RIP), beats the crap out of him.

    This still makes me mad. It’s not touching that your ex-boyfriend flew from Ohio to NY to assault someone (as the music and her tone of voice suggested to me). As someone with an ex, trust me.

    It’s TV. It’s Glee. I shouldn’t care. But they turned Brody into a gigolo, and I’m still mad at them about that, too. ;)

    oh dear .. rebound love…

    Maybe she is doing research and the plan is to bring Dean Geyer back for S6?

    Is what he does any really different from what she does dressing like a prostitute in her videos and showing her ass in pics and videos? I mean, she has prostituted herself aiming for a pop career- they are on the same level.

    I don’t know these people other than what I see and read. Lea has long been reputed to be a diva, and that turns men off. I have read that she and Cory were going to get engaged, but they lived in separate residences and took separate vacations. Not sure signs that that relationship was that serious. Hollywood must be full,of young good looking guys trying to get a break. This escort service he was/is a part of May be more common than we assume.

    From a coke head to a gigolo? Say it ain’t so.

    the cynic in me can’t help but think her ‘people’ have planted this to try and drum up some media interest… they seem to work on the basis that there’s no such thing as bad publicity…

    Ah (grunts) … lol at the sub-titles.

    Hey, I’ve considered hiring a date for special occasions when everyone is coupled. A lot of Hollywood types use these services for awards shows (no sex involved). Much cheaper than having an actual relationship and you have some arm candy and someone to talk to.

    I had an aunt who used to hire out my brothers and his friends as prom dates for her friends’ daughters. So I guess I don’t see anything wrong in it.

    Who was a coke head? If you’re talking about her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith–he died of a heroin/alcohol overdose.

    He struggled with a drug addiction. No shame in that. And sadly he didn’t win the battle.

    As far as what this new dude does for a living? No shame in that either.

  • Dewayne Boyd

    No shame in being a gigolo? Yeah, OK. LOL. Would you want your daughter or niece dating a heroin addict or a gigolo?
