We're probably more upset about this than any other celeb break-up, because we really thought these two would last.

Lea Michele is a single lady once more as she has split from her model boyfriend, Matthew Paetz after nearly two years of dating.

"Their split is a huge shock to all their friends," a source told Entertainment Weekly.

"Lea and Matthew were talking about getting engaged as recently as around the holidays. Everyone thought they would get engaged soon, but definitely not split."

But if we're judging by her social media accounts, it seems that Lea has a strong backbone of friends by her side. 

Matthew was Lea's first boyfriend since the death of her ex-boyfriend and former Glee co-star Cory Monteith in 2013. We hope she finds the right love soon!


Following on from the tragic loss of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, over two years ago, Lea Michele has finally spoken about her new boyfriend Matthew Paetz. 

Up until now, the 29-year-old has remained tight-lipped about her love life but has revealed that she has found love two and a half years after the tragic death of her long-term boyfriend and Glee co-star, Cory. 

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Lea finally opened up about how the romance remains strong despite heartache and fame. 

"At the end of the day, this industry is really tough, and the only way to get through is to create a solid unit, and that’s really what we’ve been since day one."

"We’ve stood by each other through anything that was thrown our way. [Matthew] is a such a great man that he would never really let anything like that ever crack our lovely little core that we've created."

Perhaps most importantly to Lea, she noted that she thinks Cory would have loved Matthew and would have been happy for her. 

"He is very respectful towards the person that I was with, and that, again, is something I love so much about him."

"I really know that Cory would love him too."

Cory Monteith suffered from substance abuse issues and died from an overdose in July 2013. 


It has been almost two years since Cory Monteith passed away, and it seems like his girlfriend Lea Michele is slowly finding happiness again.

The Glee actress took to Instagram yesterday to pay tribute to her new boyfriend Matthew Paetz as he celebrated his 30th birthday, thanking him for bringing "joy" back into her heart.

"Matthew, thank you for bringing such happiness into my life. For making me smile again and bringing such a bright joy into my every day… Thank you for loving me and my family… And of course Sheila too.. May this be the happiest Birthday ever!" she wrote, sharing a picture of Matthew kissing her on the cheek.

Lea and Matthew have been together since last year, and now share a home together in Los Angeles.

Just last week, the actress posted a picture of her former boyfriend and co-star Cory in honour of his own birthday:

Lea has spoken since Cory's death about the dark times she went through, and her struggle to find peace again.

"At the start, it’s hard because you’re so physically and mentally shocked and damaged, but after a while you get tired of physically feeling so horrendous, so I started doing yoga, which really helped. Then gradually your mind catches up with your body," she told Glamour UK five months after Cory's passing.

"Speaking about the possibility of moving on from Cory, Lea said she knew it was what he would want. "[P]eople have to understand that I can’t be alone forever. Cory wouldn’t want that," she said.



Glee star Lea Michele paid tribute to her late boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith with a touching Twitter post today.

Cory died of an accidental drug overdose in July 2013, between the fifth and sixth seasons of Glee, in which he also starred alongside Lea. He would have turned 33 today, and the actress marked what is no doubt a difficult date for her with a message on social media.

Sharing a picture of Cory sitting at a drum kit and smiling, Lea wrote, "I know you're serenading everyone right now.. We love you Cory! Happy Birthday…"

Lea and Cory had been dating for over a year when he passed away over two years ago, having met when they both began work on Glee in 2009. Their characters, Rachel and Finn, had an on-off relationship throughout the first four seasons of the show.

Back in February, Lea paid another quiet tribute to Cory as Glee wrapped filming on its final ever episode. Posting a picture of herself walking off the show's set carrying Finn's McKinley Titans football jersey, Lea simply wrote, "One more thing…"

The actress and singer remained out of the spotlight for several weeks following Cory's death, and later admitted she believed she had found The One with him.

"We were done. We were it. When you’re at that place in your life with someone, you talk about everything," she told Glamour UK of her relationship with the actor. "We talked about a lot of things. We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old and who would be fat and how we would stay thin. We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do."

Last year Lea began dating aspiring actor Matthew Paetz, and now shares a home with him in Los Angeles.

Speaking about the possibility of moving on from Cory, Lea said she knew it was what he would want. "[P]eople have to understand that I can’t be alone forever. Cory wouldn’t want that," she said.



Glee actress Lea Michele was the subject of new rumours today after she was pictured wearing a sparkler on her wedding finger.

The star was seen leaving Jimmy Kimmel's studio in Los Angeles on Wednesday night sporting a never-seen-before black and gold ring.


However although the 28-year-old actress has been officially dating boyfriend Matthew Paetz since last June, friends say it's unlikely the pair will be getting engaged any time soon. Lea is keen to finish up with Glee before she makes any life-changing decisions, such as agreeing to get married.

"She wants to fully love on from the show, have it end and then she would start considering engagement and marriage," a source said.

And with so many memories of Lea's late boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith connected to her work on Glee, the actress is reluctant to take things to the next level with Matthew any time soon. "She thinks that getting engaged while still on Glee would be a slap in the face to Cory Monteith. There is still too much emotion around," the insider revealed.

We're glad to see Lea is happy, and even more delighted that she's wise enough to take things slowly!


She dated Cory Monteith before his tragic passing last year and now Lea Michele is back in the dating game. The Glee actress is apparently in a new relationship and this one is causing quite a bit of controversy.
