I 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!
