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.

so she is a lesbian, in another fake relationship, like she was with the guy who died, too bad this guy is a obvious man-for-hire, not just another co-star who also has stuff to hide

Not at all surprised by this. After all she did go out with a junkie and knew it. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Meh. As usual the starlet professes how she "loved him so much" but in less than a year she is taking up with another. The only actress to ever mean it was Michelle Williams. That's a true love. Lea Michelle is just an attention whore.

Oh my God, people, it's not true. If you read the article carefully, you can find some inconsistencies. Well, she was photographed with their friends and this guy once. And what is this? Lea herself in an interview (recently) said that at the moment decided to focus on her career and is not going to start a serious relationship!

She's entitled to do whatever she wants, but... she moves quite fast. It hasn't even been a year since she lost Cory, and that guy pretty much looks like a douche.

Lea Michele and Rachel Berry are officially the same person. Rachel dated a male escort too. Interesting.
