Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison were briefly an item before their stint on the hit FOX series Glee.
Although the singers were previously tight-lipped regarding their romance, Michele decided to finally come clean about their short-lived relationship in her book, Brunette Ambition. What better way to pimp your memoir than to finally spill the beans about a rumor people have talked about for years?
According to the folks at Us Weekly, Lea Michele admits that she and her Glee co-star dabbled in dating prior to their stint on the television series. She even uses the term “Broadway beat” to describe the relationship, a phrase that is either insanely adorable or nerve-shatteringly obnoxious.
Here’s what Michele had to say about the situation:
“When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time. I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we’d actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat.”
The Daily Mail points out that Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison fans were always a little curious about their romantic history. Although the pair admitted that they are “close,” neither Michele nor Morrison would confirm anything regarding their history.
“I’ve known Matt for years. He’s been a friend of mine from New York. People are going to make things up. I think it’s just because we really are so close,” Lea told Hollywood.com back in 2010.
Of course, Lea Michele’s relationship with Will Schuester isn’t the only Glee-related rumor she’s recently addressed. The Inquisitr previously reported that Michele took a moment during her recent appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman to discuss reports that she and Naya Rivera spend a lot of time quarreling on the set.
“It’s really unbelievable the amount of things that can just be completely made up. And it’s really frustrating. The way people like to pit women against each other is really annoying and it’s sad,” Lea explained.
She continued, “If there were ever really a catfight on the show, you’d know about it, because I’d get a ring, and I’d put Jello in it, and I’d make it fun for everyone, and it would be super hot.”
