Lea Michele’s Boyfriend Would Like For Her To Believe That He’s Just A Gigolo Coach, Whatever That Is

Lea Michele Winking

Remember how we said that sources were blabbing all over the place about how Lea Michele’s new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, is allegedly a former-gigolo? Well, apparently, Lea has since confronted him about the rumors, causing him to deny deny deny. The important thing to take notice of, however, is that he does allegedly admit to being a gigolo coach and to having entertained “a few” female clients in the past. But NOT to being a former-gigolo, okay?!

And, it’s like, stupid me! Here I was, thinking that having once upon a time acted as a gigolo makes a person a former-gigolo. But someone’s nervous PR team Matty reportedly says that it was just research. You know, for his current job as a gigolo coach. Which is super-cool and exciting news to me, because this is literally the first time that I’ve ever heard of such a profession or considered its necessity. But how else would a group of young men learn how to make $17,500 a week if not meticulously coached by, who I’m now realizing, is an angel among us?

I, for one, hope that he really is a gigolo coach, because it gives me hope that there really are an infinite number of word combinations that I can throw together and call my profession. (Mountainside watermelon tamer, anyone?) And, according to TMZ, Lea, herself, totally believes Matthew’s PR spin story. I’d say that it’s probably because she has no idea that “a few” to Matthew allegedly means, “however many clients I can squeeze into one year.” But maybe she’s just got extra-strength, heavy-duty faith in people. In any case, she shouldn’t worry too much, because, if all else fails, there’s always John Mayer.

    I’m just going to sit back with some popcorn and see how this gigolo business plays out.

    All opinion of Lea Michelle aside, am I just naive to think that this really doesn’t matter? Like, is it really THAT big of a deal if the dude is a former gigolo? I would feel the same way if a famous male star starting dating a former call girl. Idk….I am missing something?

      Well the original story said he was on a “hiatus” which I took to mean he is on a break while dating her and if they break up he can just start up again.

      What surprises me most about this whole situation is how poor her teams handling of this has been. I seriously think she needs to call up her L’Oreal buddy Blake and get some PR lessons because this has been ridiculous.

      Hmm.. I think I’m mostly interested in seeing how they scramble to cover it up. Things are always more scandalous when it seems like it’s actively being hidden.

      Fair enough. And admittedly, he lost some points with his whole “just because I used to sleep with women for money does NOT make me an ex-gigolo!” argument. So either a) we need to review some definitions and rules of logic, b) you’re currently still a gigolo (no judgement, but own it, dude), or c) sloppy, sloppy PR is to blame.

      Yeah, I don’t really get why this is a story either. I just see it as NBD…..

      I think the whole “Deny! Deny! Deny!” bull poopy is the big story. Especially since Lea Michelle guards her “good girl” persona so strongly. I don’t see the big deal either but I have to laugh at Lea. Side note/history lesson: One of the greatest empress’s ever was a former prostitute. Theodora. Google her she was an amazing woman.
