Lea Michele - Lea Michele returns to work on Glee

Lea Michele has returned to the 'Glee' set.

The 26-year-old actress started work on the fifth season of the show on Thursday (01.08.13), just two weeks after her boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, died from a heroin and alcohol overdose at the Fairview Pacific Hotel in Vancouver.

She tweeted: ''First day of glee today..And at my first wardrobe fitting for Rachel Berry for Season Five! I've missed her so much (sic).''

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Emmy producers are currently planning the best way to pay tribute to Cory at the awards ceremony, which will take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on September 22.

Executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, said: ''Something that reflects an homage [is being planned, but] what the extent of that is, or how we're going to approach it... well, it's too early to tell.

''If Cory had passed away in March, we'd have had four months to look at this with a little more perspective. The reason we're getting all of this discussion now is because he passed away two weeks ago. But we are going to deal with it.''

One Year Later, Cory Monteith Is Not Forgotten By Lea Michele And "Glee" Friends 4285653 News

The anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death has been a trying time for his loved ones. After his father gave an interview talking about his estranged son, Monteith’s former girlfriend Lea Michele, took to Twitter for her own tribute. Michele, who acted opposite Monteith on Fox’s musical comedy Glee, posted a photo of her real life and on-screen partner, adding: “We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always.”

Following Monteith's death, Lea Michele took some time, before returning to work, filming a new season and releasing her debut record and first book.

Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13, 2013. His death added new fuel to the treatment versus persecution debate for drug addicts. Monteith, who had had a turbulent childhood, had previously admitted to struggling with drug abuse in his teenage years. His death threw his friends and co-stars in confusion and resulted in a hiatus for Glee. The show later returned with a special tribute episode for Monteith, so that viewers could have a proper fairwell with the actor and his character. In his own way of commemorating Cory’s life, showrunner Ryan Murphy shared a screencap from the episode over the weekend.

Cory Monteith's Father Is Still Mourning The Actor, But Thinks Lea Michele Should Move On 4283132 News

With the anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death approaching, his family and friends are speaking out about the past year without him. Monteith’s father expressed a particularly touching sentiment in an interview with ET Canada recently. "I still miss him very much and I still have the empty feeling," Joe Monteith said.

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith
Monteith's death left his family and his girlfriend, Lea Michele, devastated last year.

The actor died last July, after overdosing on heroin and alcohol. In the interview, his father also revealed that he had not been present at Cory’s funeral. "I didn't get to go to his viewing, which would have meant a lot," he said. The reason behind Joe’s absence was that the father and son had been estranged for the past few years, although they had begun to reconnect at the time of Monteith’s death.

He did see a small light in the tragedy, however. "I did receive an email from his mother a couple of days ago [and] in the near future she's going to be sending me some of his stuff," Joe added. He also had some kind words for Lea Michele, who was dating Monteith  at the time of his death.

"She's a beautiful young woman, she's just getting to the top of her career and I don't expect her to go out and do it alone," Joe said. "She should enjoy life. She had a good time when she was with Cory, from what I understand, but life's gotta go on."

The 31-year-old actor's death has also been marked by fans, with the hashtag #1YearWithoutCory, trending on twitter thanks to a flood of supportive messages from Monteith's fans.

Cory's fans are not the only ones being vocal about his loss on the anniversary of his death. His estranged father, Joe Monteith, has discussed his late son in a recent interview with ET Canada

Joe echoed Cory's girlfriend Lea Michele's sentiments at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards last August. Michele, speaking in public for the first time after Cory's death, said she would remember "his incredible talent; his handsome smile and his beautiful, beautiful heart." Speaking to the Canadian news show last week, Joe described his son as "a likeable young man and if he was in the room, you'd be smiling."

Joe also stated that he was still shocked by his son's cause of death as Cory "enjoyed life." Monteith's body was discovered in a hotel room in Vancouver, Canada on 13th July 2013. His death was accidental and the result of a fatal mix of heroin and alcohol. Monteith had discussed his struggles with substance abuse and in March of 2013 had been admitted into a rehab facility.

Joe was also questioned about Cory's former girlfriend and Glee co-star, Lea Michele. Michele, since Cory's death, has been under constant media scrutiny and her every move has been in reference to the tragic end of her former relationship. 28-year-old Michele began dating again in April of this year and is currently in a relationship with Matthew Paetz, a lifestyle coach and reported former gigolo. 

Joe wishes Michele all the best and does not expect her to be alone and grieving forever. In the interview, Joe said Michele's "a beautiful young woman, she's just getting to the top of her career and I don't expect her to go out and do it alone. She should enjoy life. She had a good time when she was with Cory, from what I understand, but life's got to go on."

Second Twitter Hack For 'Glee' Cast: Lea Michele Is Not Pregnant! 4273610 News

Lea Michele shocked the world by announcing she was pregnant via Twitter on Friday (4th July). Mere days after stepping out in public for the first time with her boyfriend Matthew Paetz, it appeared the couple were wasting no time in announcing Michele's pregnancy. But, as it transpired, it was all a hoax as Michele's Twitter account had been hacked by an unknown culprit.

Lea Michele
Lea Michele confirmed her account had been hacked.

As previously reported, the hacker pretending to be Michele wrote: "Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy." Soon after the Tweet was posted, Michele deleted it and announced she had been hacked and was certainly not pregnant. In a tweet posted the same day, Michele wrote "I was HACKED! Guess Chris Colfer and I should have known better than to make our passwords the names of our cats."

<center><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en-gb"><p>I was HACKED!

Michele's account was hacked only days after her Glee co-star Chris Colfer also fell victim to the same prank. The hacker tweeted that Colfer was leaving the hit show ahead of its final season due to "personal issues". Fans of the show were thrown into panic and Glee's producers quickly issued a statement clarifying the tweet was the work of a hacker. 

24-year-old Colfer dealt with the incident with as much grace and humour as Michele. He even joked that as he was leaving the show he'd have time to babysit Michele's phantom baby!

<center><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en-gb"><p>.<a href="https://twitter.com/msleamichele" rel="nofollow" >@msleamichele</a> but apparently I&#39;ll be free if you need a babysitter!</p>&mdash; Chris Colfer (@chriscolfer) <a href="https://twitter.com/chriscolfer/statuses/485187507215028225" rel="nofollow" >July 4, 2014</a></blockquote><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></center>

Both Michele and Colfer will star in the upcoming series of Glee which will be the Fox show's sixth and final season. Filming of the sixth season is slated to begin this month and the series should air sometime next year.

Lea Michele Pregnant? Nope, Just Another Twitter Hack 4273154 News

Has someone gone on a Glee-themed Twitter hacking spree? Lea Michele has become the second Glee cast member to have her account hijacked, after Chris Colfer’s Twitter shocked fans with a fake announcement of his departure from the show. The message posted to Lea Michele’s account was more personal than Colfer’s, reading: “Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy,” read a message posted on her Twitter account.

Lea Michele
Lea Michele - (probably) not pregnant.

Before the hoax got out to too many people, however, Michele’s quick response team (aka her publicist) came out with the clarification that the star’s Twitter had been hacked. However, some news sources like TIME have pointed out that the statement avoided the pregnancy question.

So keep calm, everyone – noone is leaving Glee this season, for personal reasons, maternity leave or otherwise.

False Alarm! Lea Michele Is NOT Pregnant, Twitter Account Hacked 4271924 News

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.

Lea Michele Parades New Boyfriend Matthew Paetz During Sunny Hike Date 4270240 News

Lea Michele is dating again! The Glee actress has stepped out with her first lover since losing her boyfriend Cory Monteith to an overdose nearly a year ago. Michele introduced new man Matthew Paetz to the world with a sunny and carefree park date followed by a hike.

The pair have been rumoured to be dating for a few weeks but seeing them out-and-about being openly intimate confirms their relationship. It has been reported that hunky Paetz used to work as a gigolo for escort service Cowboys4Angels, something that has been neither confirmed nor denied by the company.

Regardless, Paetz is apparently "a very nice guy" who is "a lot of fun" to be around, according to E!'s source. "He is very into being in a relationship and loves being in one. He is the kind of person who will want to be with that person all the time, but in a good way," the source continued, adding "And he is a good listener."

A grief-stricken Michele hid from the public eye for months last summer before she threw herself into her new career projects with a renewed gusto. As well as completing filming on Glee, the actress and singer has released her solo album, Louder, as well as her first memoir, Brunette Ambition.

More: Spending a week with Lea Michele's new boyfriend allegedly costs $17,500.

To top off her progress getting her life back to normal, it seems that she now has a new man to complete the picture after having met Matthew on the set of Lea's music video for 'On My Way.'

"She waited a long time before getting serious again and she likes him a lot," a source told E!. Another insider shared that Paetz "treats her really well," adding "he's smart and fun. She's really happy."

More: Matthew Paetz insists he is a "dating coach."

The aspiring actor and model is said to have inspired "very strong feelings" in Michele, who "thinks he's amazing."

Lea Michele Still Dating Matthew Paetz Despite Gigolo Rumours? 4244310 News

Until fairly recently, actors were considered akin to prostitutes. But, now we've overcome the taboo associated with actors, we're still shocked and appalled at the prospect of a seemingly wholesome actress dating someone who may have been a gigolo. Isn't it about time we get over it?

Lea Michele
Lea Michele apparently knows about her new boyfriend's unusual past.

We're not even sure Lea Michele's new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, is a gigolo. Or, for that matter, if he really is her boyfriend! As usual, we're entirely reliant on insider sources and we all know just how reliable they can be. TMZ broke the news that Paetz allegedly worked as a gigolo and even posted images from his reported escort page. Whilst People spoke to sources who swore Michele and Paetz are definitely together.

The couple allegedly began dating in April of this year when they met on the set of Michele's music video for her single 'On My Way'. This is the most recent relationship for the 27-year-old Glee star since the tragic death of her partner Cory Monteith in July 2013.

Paetz reportedly worked as an escort for the website Cowboys4Angels. Paetz's escort name is, according to the entertainment website, 'Christian'. His services - including life coaching, dating expertise and massage therapy - do not come cheap and an hour with 'Christian' costs $350. 

Recent reports in TMZ suggest Michele is aware of Paetz's shady past and has questioned him about it. Paetz allegedly told Michele he only coaches male escorts in the role of dating expert and the "few dates" he went on whilst on the website were for research purposes only. Michele has reportedly decided to continue seeing Paetz despite the rumours. 

Yet ultimately, we don't know. We don't know if Michele and Paetz are dating. We don't know if Paetz ever really was (or is) a gigolo. But, after the hard year Michele has endured, if she's happy shouldn't we just give them both a break?

Allegedly, Spending A Week With Lea Michele's New Boyfriend Costs $17500 4242658 News

Lea Michele's new boyfriend Matthew Paetz is certainly handsome, muscly and. a former gigolo? The former Glee star's love life has been under scrutiny over the last few months as it's almost a year (a month today to be precise) since her boyfriend Cory Monteith tragically died. Although Michele has been keeping her relationship with Paetz quiet, rumours have already begun to circulate which suggest her new beau may have a shady past.

Lea Michele has started dating again.

Michele and Paetz are officially a couple, according to People. They met in April on the set of Michele's music video for 'On My Way' in which he appears as an extra, although interestingly does not have the part of Michele's on camera love interest. 

Yet Michele may be moving on but, understandably as less than a year has passed, does think back to her relationship with Monteith. A source, speaking to People, claims "For a long time, Lea wasn't close to even thinking about getting into a relationship. Cory's death was and will continue to be a struggle for her."

Fortunately, Michele has seemingly met someone who is helping her move on romantically at least. Paetz is an aspiring model, actor and lifestyle coach according to his Twitter page. However, as it is fairly difficult to make a splash in Los Angeles, a city filled with aspiring actors, models and writers, it appears Paetz may have been paying the bills in a less than conventional way. TMZ have obtained information and images which suggest Paetz has been moonlighting as a hired male escort. 

A screen shot of the escort website Cowboys4Angels shows a picture of a man who does look remarkably like Paetz. 'Christian', as the gigolo in question is named, is a qualified "life coach, dating expert and massage therapist." Hopefully, if Michele is indeed dating the same man, we hope she's not having to pay the price. An hour with Christian will cost you $350 whilst a weekend is $6000 and a week $17 500.
