False Alarm! Lea Michele Is NOT Pregnant, Twitter Account Hacked
The 'Glee' actress is not pregnant, despite what tweets sent from her account may have claimed.
Lea Michele is not pregnant, despite what a Twitter "announcement" this morning seemed to suggest. The singer and actress was the victim of a prank tweet after her account was hacked and an anonymous user pretended to be Michele announcing her pregnancy.
The actress' reps have confirmed that the tweet was a hoax written by a hacker. In a now-deleted message, the hacker wrote in a post that went live at 11:20am: "Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy."
Though the message was blatantly a little off, plenty of Lea's fans were fooled into thinking it was the Glee star herself making an announcement. The hacking coincides with a similar strike on Michele's co-star Chris Colfer's account where someone wrote that he was leaving the hit musical show.
Colfer's Twitter briefly displayed a message claiming that he was being "let go" from the show due to "personal issues" before the tweet was deleted and he confirmed that he had been hacked.
It's unclear whether the two instances are related or even if a single person is deliberately targeting Glee cast members but fans show be warned to take any "big announcement" tweets with a pinch of salt from now on until they can be verified.
One of Lea's recent announcements that isn't a hoax is the news that she is dating a new man, Matthew Paetz. Her first public relationship since the death of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith nearly a year ago, Lea's new squeeze is said to be "a very nice guy" who is "a lot of fun" to be around.
