Lea Michele & Boyfriend Matthew Paetz Step Out Together for First Time! (Photos)

Lea Michele and her new boyfriend Matthew Paetz look super cute together in these newly released photos taken last week in Los Angeles.

This is the first sighting of the new couple out and about together since their relationship was reported back in early June.

The couple was seen out and about twice that day – once in the morning on a hike together and then later in the day taking a stroll in the park after washing up from their workout. He then spent the rest of the weekend at Lea‘s house and even used her car to run errands!

Lea and Matthew met on the set of the music video for her song “On My Way.” He was one of the backup dancers and love interest for her in the video.

FYI: Lea is wearing a Minkpink dress. Lea is also wearing Under Armour sneakers.

    And the PR begins…!

  • Everyone

    Get ready for everyone to put up a fuss even though its none of there business haha

  • Kara

    He’s cute and if he makes her happy…we all have past

  • Name required

    Lea and the gigolo. LMAO.

  • Sarah

    @Everyone – I really don’t think anyone cares! haha

  • jon m’shulla

    Well, it is a fuss. He is a gigolo. He appeared on a male prostitute website. For the ignorant:
    He is a whore who makes money from going on dates and having sex with women (we think…but, not sure it is just women.) He is a sex for pay slut.

  • Total Measurements

    Lea and the gigolo. LMAO

  • bett

    i like that she is happy! great couple, she deserve to be with someone, the fact that Cory is Dead doesn’t mean that she has to be alone all her live. people should stop the hate and let her be.

  • Moriarty

    at least he knows what he doing when it counts hahaha

  • Love The Shoes

    @jon m’shulla: But why is any of that your problem? It’s her life and decision right? Why are your drawers in a knot about something that has zero to do with you?

  • jessie

    They forgot to add “Is she still missing Corey?”

  • demi

    Will anyone really care in a week or so. She is slowly fading. There is not the interest in how she is handling Cory’s death any more. If this guy was not linked to being a gigolo would there be any story. She has relegated herself to bikini shots and hiking pictures. She has a lot of talent it would be nice if we could focus on her work.

  • really

    Thank god no mention of Corey, that train has sailed.

  • ?

    How much does he charge?

  • Anna

    There is something about this guy I just don’t like. And I used to really like Lea and the way she handled Cory’s death, but now it all feels like… meeeh. If she spends the 1 year “anniversary” with this guy, it’s really hard to believe Cory was “the love of her life”. Sure, she has to move on sometimes, but how do you move on from someone like that not even 1 year later. But heck, that’s her business, not ours. Whatever floats her boat, I guess… It’s her career that’s gonna be hurt from it, not mine.

  • Linda

    @?: Why, Are you going to ask for his services?

  • How much?

    How much is Lea paying him? HEHE!!

  • MMMMM…

    Lets not kid ourselves that guy is incredible HANDSOME, SEXY, HOT AND ATTRACTIVE. If he were to charge me for his services I wont hesitate and pay him right away LOL!!! He is yummy!!!

  • Comical

    @Anna: I think the off thing is that his eyebrows make him look sinister and he has a stupid hairstyle…I don’t know him so I can’t comment on his character…although I am sure he’s a nice guy.

    p.s I don’t get why people keep misspelling Cory’s name…Get it right (no glee pun intended)

  • Elaine

    Totally staged photo op. What this chick won’t do for publicity.

  • sara

    @demi: maybe it would help if SHE focused on her work, finally announce tour dates, do more movies… lately it’s only been about hiking, going on vacations, and this guy

  • talia

    these pics don’t prove that they are dating? they look like two friends hanging out

  • yep

    he looks gay

  • Shame

    D-list wannabe with F-list boyfriend.

  • troll

    First the druggie now the gigolo.

  • the 1st pic

    WTF is that huge thing on his shoulder??????????

  • Rose

    He looks like he would make a hot new boyfriend for Jon Groff. I get gay vibes from him.

  • What?

    @the 1st pic: What thing on his shoulder?

    Idont see anything

  • Oh my

    How much does he charge? I want to pay him for his services!!! WHAT A HOTTIE!!! and I like he is tall

  • Oh my

    @talia: It is been said they are dating since they met on the set of her new video

  • Sage

    Dating one of your backup dancers never works out in Hollywood. It’s like a curse, BUT I hope these two do work out. They are very cute together!

  • Lusfcious

    Ohh my HE IS HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want him in my bed ASAP hehe!! I pay him what he charges

  • Hamamama

    Looks just like her ex w/ facial hair. Imagine that

  • luz

    @Oh my: they were holding hands when they were on set though… I guess they hit it off quickly?

  • Michelle

    i dont care what anybody says, Lea looks pretty in this picture

  • Durk’sHuman

    Why is this even news? Do people really care about what this second-rate actress does? She’s a publicity hound. She needs the press because her mediocre talent alone won’t get her the coverage she needs after her show finally ends this season.

  • Michelle
  • Julia

    Wow..i really don’t care about his looks.He may be a good man, but the fact that it hasn’t been even a year since cory’s death and she is already with’s sad.I don’t’s her life afterall, but still it saddens me to se her with another man so quick.I don’t understand why people these days are so obsessed with relationships.It’s great to be single and enjoy life with friends.Nowadays having a boufirend/girlfriend is a necessity.
    But i am happy for her because it must have been hard for her and i hope this guy won’t hurt her.


    How much does he charge per night? I want to book a nite with aht guy!! MY HE IS DELICIOUS and GOOD LOOKING AND HOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTT

  • BunnyB

    Im glad to see she’s moved on from Cory. For anyone judging her poorly, Cory has been gone for a year now. Let the girl move on.

    Agreed. If the relationship is true , it seem like fast move. Overall, I am glad Lea is doing well and staying on the positive path.
