Lea Michele's New Boyfriend

Former GIGOLO

6/11/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lea Michele New BoyfriendLea Michele is getting for free what other women pay good money for -- her new beau has been moonlighting as a gigolo.

Lea has been quietly dating Matthew Paetz for the last few months ... she has very consciously kept the relationship on the down low.

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Matthew has been a hired gun for Cowboys4Angels under the alias, Christian.

Cowboys4Angels -- which offers male "companionship" to lonely women -- is featured on Showtime's, "Gigolos." 

According to the website ... Matthew is a certified life coach, dating expert and massage therapist ... charging $350 for one hour and up to $6,000 for a weekend. For $17,500 you can get a whole week.

Matthew's profile is now hidden on the site.

We're told Lea and Matthew met on the set of her music video, "On My Way."

Sources tell us ... Matthew most recently took on a client for a weekend during the Stagecoach music festival in April. He's gone on hiatus since he started dating Lea.

Reps for both Lea and Cowboys4Angels had no comment.

This is typical behavior of Lea Michele... dating a man-whore that'll do anything for money. I wonder what Corey would think of Lea's taste in men..

Well I guess dude has to make money somehow. Its rough out there despite what the spam on this site says. lol Hopefully Lea is okay with it and maybe that's why she kept the relationship on the low (besides trying not to upset some folks).

At $17,000 a week I don't see it lasting.

It's been almost a year since Cory's passing. If this story is true, she does have a right to move on. But honestly, there is nothing to prove this relationship. If anything, the "gigilos" website probably sold this story.

There's no way her people would let her date him if this was news upfront to them. They will either say it's his "past" while he still does it under the table, no pun intended, or they could have a faux break up only to really date quietly. Oh and you know this subject is lifted from any Lea interviews.
