Lea Michele Source Admits She's 'Not the Nicest Person,' But Says She's Not Racist or Transphobic

Lea Michele‘s behavior on set has been called out by former co-stars this week, but a source close to the actress says that she should not be characterized as racist, sexist or transphobic.

The allegations started after Glee actress Samantha Ware tweeted about how Lea made her experience on the show a “living hell.” Several other former co-stars spoke out and said how she was “very unpleasant” to work with and that she was a “nightmare” behind the scenes.

Now, a source close to Lea says that she is trying to make amends.

“She’s had a real wake-up call,” a friend told The Post. “It’s never easy to hear people speak about you this way. It’s a total shock.”

Lea was a bitch to a lot of people who are now taking the opportunity to come forward,” another source said. “She may not be the nicest person, but she’s not racist, sexist or transphobic. I would say she has behavioral issues that she’s dealing with. She is listening, she hears what everyone says and wants to apologize. This is her past and she wants to handle things responsibly.”

Lea, who is currently seven months pregnant with her first child, has been emotional after learning about how her behavior has affected others.

“She’s emotional and I know there have been tears. It’s a lot of stress. Sets are volatile places, but there’s no excuses for her behavior and she knows that,” a friend said.
