Lea Michele, best known for her role as Rachel Berry on Glee, and her boyfriend of two years, Matthew Paetz, have called it quits.
A source tells E! News that in spite of the breakup, Lea is doing just fine.

“She’s doing well and is focusing on friends and work,” the source says. “This has been very sudden and hard, but if anyone can pick herself up it’s Lea. She has a great network of friends.”
Matthew Paetz was the first person Lea Michele took a chance at love with following the untimely death of her longtime love and Glee costar Cory Monteith. Known for his Glee role as Finn Hudson, Cory died of an accidental overdose in the summer of 2013.
Since the split, Lea Michele has kept busy, and appears to be leaning on her close network of girlfriends.
“Girls day at @coteshop w/ my girl @itsbeccatobin ???,” she captioned this Instagram post from a couple of days ago.
Us Weekly reports Lea Michele is crushed by the split, and that Matthew Paetz had “had enough.” He supposedly refuses to take her back. The publication, of course, fails to mention why. E! News reports he wouldn’t give Lea Michele a reason for breaking up with her.

Are you surprised to learn Lea Michele is once again single? The Scream Queens star is talented and beautiful–not to mention rich. It’s unlikely she’ll be that way for very long.
