Lea Michele, one of the breakout stars of the hit television show Glee, had a topsy-turvy 2014. The Inquisitr kept up with the latest from the former thespian turned actress, especially after the death of her boyfriend and fellow Glee star Cory Montieth. It took some time, but Lea was able to find love again with her current boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, a former gigolo. Also, Lea really tested her acting chops by guest starring in Sons of Anarchy, a role that was nothing like her iconic Rachel Berry, which she pulled off radiantly.
Now, Lea Michele is ready to move on and put 2014 behind her. She is doing this by bringing in the new year topless in the tropics.
According to an article by Entertainment Online, Lea Michele wished her followers a Happy New Year on Instagram from her vacation in Mexico with boyfriend Matthew Paetz. Lea made sure to provide a picture that her fans would surely never forget, and she delivered.
As you can see above, Lea Michele is posing in a thong (again actually) while leaning off what looks like a pier over an infinity pool. Her long locks of hair are flowing eloquently in a relaxed style. Now to be fair, most people would first stare at her sexy butt because that seems to be standard protocol when observing a sexy shot of a woman in a bikini from behind. Then as people’s eyes travel up, they’ll notice Lea isn’t wearing a bikini top.
The picture, however, has one peculiarity: It is very similar to Lea Michele’s picture for bringing in 2014 albeit being topless in this one.
The Daily Mail also reported on Lea Michele’s sexy way of bringing in the New Year by including more information of her relationship with Matthew Paetz. Lea recently admitted she is in “love” with the former dating coach and gigolo, and posted a photograph of herself and Matthew holding hands on Instagram. She also captioned the photo with a very romantic line.
“The love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.”
Matthew Paetz is also said to be equally in love with Lea Michele. An anonymous source verified this to the magazine Us Weekly, stating that Matthew is “devoted to her.”
Finally, Joe Monteith, father to the late Cory Monteith, who we wrote was Lea Michele’s boyfriend before he past away, has given his blessing, and is happy Lea is moving on. Joe even gave a statement on the relationship.
“She’s [Lea Michele] 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 gotta go on.”
Looks like 2015 will surely be Lea Michele’s year. With her new man by her side and the upcoming airing of the final season of Glee, Lea surely has a lot to look forward to. As for you, what do you think of Lea’s sexy way of bringing in the New Year?
