Lea Michele is reportedly dating again almost a year after the death of her boyfriend and ‘Glee‘ co-star Cory Monteith. Us Magazine reports that Michele is now dating Matthew Paetz, a 27-year-old man she met on the set of her music video for ‘On My Way.’

The actress allegedly met Paetz on the video shoot shortly after attending Coachella. A source tells the magazine, “She had just come from Coachella where she was missing Cory incredibly. [The video shoot] was a big party and a really therapeutic moment for her.”

Paetz’ Twitter account lists him as a dating and lifestyle coach. But TMZ is reporting that Paetz was a former male escort and gigolo for the website Cowboys4Angels. The site claims that Matthew used the alias Christian and charged $350 for one hour, $6,000 for a weekend, and up to $17,500 for a whole week.

Michele has not confirmed publicly her relationship with Paetz yet.
