Lea Michele's Nail Artist Is Defending Her Amid Backlash from Former Co-Stars

Lea Michele‘s longtime nail artist Jenna Hipp Spencer is coming to her defense amid all of the backlash she has been receiving from former co-stars.

The Glee and Scream Queens actress has faced criticism for her behavior on set and the way she treated the people she worked with.

Jenna says that her experience with Lea was completely different than the way others are characterizing their time with the star.

“I’m devastated for @leamichele. Heartbroken 💔 For over 10 years, we’ve shared many of her most private moments, and mine. From great joys and successes to unimaginable sorrow and pain, I have witnessed Lea’s sheer and determined strength, unbreakable confidence, her brilliance. Her integrity. Her love,” Jenna wrote on Instagram. “Lea has an extreme and unique ability to completely accept those who can’t accept themselves. She can see past what others can’t forgive, a character quality I’ve always admired. Lea sends thank you cards every chance she gets and she cares deeply for others. Lea is extremely generous, altruistic and empathetic. She’s real and true and honest.”

Jenna continued, “Before our friendship, I was just her manicurist, the girl on the floor who did her nails. But she saw me, she saw my heart, not just the contrast of our social status. Lea took Max and Bowie on their first ever hikes. She held Bowie in her arms and gave him his very first shower. She will be an incredible mama.”

By her example, she’s challenged me to reach deeper, love stronger and do better. She’s a warrior. She’s a leader. She’s so special. I love Lea for all she is and all she gives… and so should you,” she concluded.

Samantha Ware, the actress who first came forward with allegations about Lea, just gave an in-depth interview about what happened on the set of Glee.
