Lea Michele’s Been Dating Her New BF for MUCH Longer Than You Thought
While some celebs love living the single life, Lea Michele is the type who’s a big fan of relationships. She was with Cory Monteith for over a year before he tragically passed away, and her last boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, stuck around for almost two. It’s been just shy of three months since the former Glee star and the gigolo decided that their romance wasn’t working out, and apparently the 29 year old is already over being single.
According to People magazine, Lea and iZombie actor Robert Buckley have recently started dating.
“They like each other,” a source told the mag. “They’re getting to know each other.”
US Weekly also confirms that Lea and the 35 year old are, in fact, a couple, and says they were looking super cozy together on Monday.
“They were interlocked the whole time they were sitting at the counter, like arms wrapped around each other at their seats and rubbing each other’s backs” an eyewitness said. “At one point… they had either just kissed or were super close talking.”
But even though ~official~ reports of the new pair are just starting to circulate, diehard Lea fans suspected the brunette beauty was seeing the former One Tree Hill star since her good pal posted and interesting Snapchat almost a month ago, in which you could hear the actress telling “Mr. Buckley” that there would be “some late nights ahead.”
Congratulations to the happy new couple!
Sadly, Lea isn’t the only celebrity whose significant other tragically died:
Glee fans everywhere were shocked and heartbroken when Cory Monteith was found dead from a drug overdose at the age of 31 back in July 2013. While all of the actor's friends, family and fans mourned his passing, perhaps nobody felt the loss like his longtime girlfriend, Lea Michele. The actress has since spoken out about Cory's death multiple times, and even penned a tune on her Louder album dedicated to his death.
