Even the A-listers aren’t safe when it comes to ghosting on a relationship.
A new report claims Lea Michele, 29, is the latest victim — after her 30-year-old boyfriend of two years, Matthew Paetz, allegedly split from the Glee star unexpectedly.

An insider tells E! News the life coach left Lea “all of a sudden and without warning,” and now won’t speak to her or any members of her inner circle.
“She got no reason or explanation for the split,” the insider spills. “She was also very supportive of him even when her friends were skeptical of him because of his past. Lea wanted to believe in love and wanted to believe the good in him. She didn’t think he should be punished for his past.”
In Touch first reported the breakup news on Monday, adding that Lea was allegedly surrounded by a strong support system and keeping herself busy.
“He ended up being an opportunist who took advantage and broke up with her in a very heartless way. Her friends were always concerned with the relationship because of his past. All of those fears were validated,” the insider continues.
However, sources close to Matthew claim, “They’ve been hot and cold for some time now — one day fighting and the next madly in love. Friends believe that Lea’s success came between the two and Matthew began to resent Lea.”
“The two just stopped working. [He] wanted to get out of town for a bit to clear his head,” the source concludes.
Feel better, Lea!
