Lea 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.
