Lea Michele’s New Boyfriend Is Apparently A Former Gigolo, So This Just Got Interesting

Lea Michele pout smile during photoshoot GIFI can’t imagine the verbal lashing I’m gonna take from Lea Michele fans who think I’m making this up, but TMZ is reporting that your girl is currently dating a former gigolo. HELLO I THINK MY EARS JUST PERKED UP.

According to them, his name is Matthew Paetz, and he and Lea have been ‘quietly dating’ for the past few months after meeting on the set of her music video for ‘On My Way’. (We’re sure the super weird nip slip she had that day helped a bit in getting his attention.) She’s apparently kept the relationship very low-profile, not just because there was always going to be heavy scrutiny on whoever she dated next after the tragic death of Cory Monteith, but also because this dude has a going rate on the website Cowboys4Angels, which offers male companionship ‘for the exclusive woman’. Which is perhaps gigolo-jargon for ‘lonely’? Please advise.

Because oh yeah, did I mention? He’s less of a retired gigolo than a ‘gigolo on hiatus’. If things don’t work out with Lea, Matthew (aka Christian, which he apparently goes by on the site) may very well go right back to charging $350 an hour, up to $6,000 for a weekend, and $17,500 for a whole week. Hooooly crap. And that’s not all! According to the website, Matthew / Christian is also a ‘certified life coach, dating expert, and massage therapist’, so DAMN GIRL. Assuming you’re not Pretty Woman-ing him right now, you’re getting a hell of a deal.

Christian’s profile is now hidden on the website, but TMZ’s sources say that his most recent client was over a weekend during the Stagecoach music festival back in April. Hope he bought Lea something pretty with that $6,000!

      Cheers to whoever named the site “Cowboys4Angels”. If I were in the pursuing a male escort business, that name would draw me right in.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Right? On board.

    • Micca Theobald

      this is hilarious, I found a couple of videos of Paetz here http://dailyentertainmentnews.com/tv/matthew-paetz-lea-micheles-new-boyfriend/ he is hot but maybe he is just helping leah with the dating scene

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I can’t decide which version is more embarrassing.

    • gayle

      Well this is rather random. Based on how hard she hustles I would have thought she would try to follow Blake Lively’s playbook in choosing a new boyfriend.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        She should probably take that advice in the future!

    • Alyssa

      I feel like this just further solidifies that fact that Monchele was a PR stunt. To be “quietly dating someone for a few months” when it hasn’t even been a YEAR since your “fiance” died, I am going to go ahead and call bullshit.

      • Alexis Rhiannon


      • Alyssa

        Not to say she should never date again, but less than a year is absurd. You didn’t even get through the anniversary yet.

      • NYCNanny

        No no no. You can not tell someone when they can start dating again after heartbreak. That is sooooooo beyond shitty.

      • C

        The man she has claimed to be the love of her life hasn’t been dead for a year, and she’s been dating some random guy for months. You can say there’s something weird about that- ’cause there is.

      • NYCNanny

        You’re awful. There’s no hard and fast rule about when someone can start dating and putting themselves out there after loss. Some people never date again after losing their partner. Some date months after. It’s such a personal thing and one is not more “right” than the other. What a crappy thing to say, c.
        (Ps: I’m far from a Lea or Corey fan…hate glee…but respect her right to date whenever she feels to do so.)

      • Alyssa

        Yes yes yes, you can tell someone they hopped on another dick way too soon. She couldn’t have been all that heartbroken if she couldn’t even give herself until the anniverary of his death.

      • Gleek101

        C and Alyssa neither of you know lea and you certainly can’t tell that she is not heartbroken because she chooses to move on. As i said before it is all pure rumours and speculation. Know it alls you both are

      • NYCNanny

        Because @ 365 days, a person automatically switches from mourning to ready to date again.
        You guys suck. I hope you never lose someone and have others judging your personal mourning process.

      • NYCNanny


      • Gleek101

        This proves nothing. There is no law that states you can’t date before the person has been gone a year and it does not prove her realationship with Cory wasn’t real. It is all rumors ad pure speculation.

      • Alyssa

        I think you are both missing the point that it was WIDELY speculated that this relationship was fake from the beginning, which is what spurned my original post. The way she acted after Cory died, always seemed so phoney. There is no way that someone who lost the “love of their life” would be ready to move on after a few months. None. I don’t care who you are, you will not be ready. The appropriate grieving time IS 1 full year, because that gets you through every holiday, birthday, and anniversary you would have had together. I’m not saying there is a switch that you are automatically okay, but 1 full year is appropriate. For someone like Lea Michele, she is in the media spotlight, her actions will always be judged, people look up to her.

      • Gleek101

        No you have missed the point. The media makes up crap all the time they are the ones that speculated that cory and leas relationship wasn’t real but they don’t have any evidence of that the only a that do are the lea and cory. People like choose to believe them. Every grieves in their own way. What gives you the right to tell how lea should or should not grieve.

    • Mai Linh Phan Le

      Crushable always makes me question Lea Michele. Damn, I was a huge fan but her actions are just so weird after Cory Monteith died. Still can’t get over it, so I don’t understand how can she.

    • M_G

      Honestly, the fact that he’s a former gigolo doesn’t bother me anymore than someone dating a former female prostitute (or porn star, or “erotic masseuse”, or whatever) would. You do what you gotta do to pay the bills, so no judgement there.
