Lea Michele & Cory Monteith are quietly dating, they spent V-Day together?

Last September, Lea Michele announced her split with Theo Stockman, her boyfriend of a year. Since then, Lea hasn’t really been “attached” to anyone publicly, although she and Ashton Kutcher were all over each other at the New Year’s Eve premiere, and there was a rumor that Lea wanted to hit that. I don’t believe Ashton succumbed to Lea’s charms, so that left her single and ready to mingle. And sometimes you find love right in front of you – in your costar and on-screen love interest! Life & Style reports that Lea is getting busy with Cory Monteith. Love it or hate it?

At last! Life & Style can exclusively confirm that Glee co-stars Cory Monteith and Lea Michele have finally taken their relationship to the next level offscreen!

Multiple eyewitnesses tell the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands Wednesday, that Lea, 25, and Cory, 29, got cozy on Valentine’s Day during a romantic date at Il Covo in LA.

“They were into each other all night,” an eyewitness reveals to Life & Style. “She was very happy, flirting and touching Cory a lot. He just stared at her with puppy-dog eyes.”

The duo didn’t hold back from showing their affection, giggling and holding handing hands throughout the evening. The eyewitness tells Life & Style that Cory fed his valentine spaghetti and Lea reciprocated by affectionately rubbing her date’s back. The couple were spotted again on a date at the Ritz-Carlton on Feb. 17.

“Cory is totally into her,” a Glee crew member confesses to Life & Style.

Lea split from her longtime beau Theo Stockman in September, and the actress and Cory were caught canoodling on the Glee set in November. But the lovebirds’ chemistry has been undeniable from the start.

“For me, if it was going to happen with anybody, it would have happened with Cory,” she admitted in 2011. And with grueling 16-hour workdays and an infectious engagement plotline, the duo have become closer than ever. “As long as I get to have scenes with Cory, it makes me really happy,” Lea has said.

The stars’ reps didn’t respond when asked for comment.

Do you buy that Cory is all over Lea? I kind of don’t. No disrespect to Pose-Hard, but she seems like The Girl Who Loves Too Much. She’s the one pushing a dude into a relationship, she’s the pursuer. I also think Lea has been trying to get with Cory for a while – in previous interviews, she’s said that they hadn’t hooked up… “yet.” She’s had her eye on him for a while.

Now, I have to admit, although I loathe Glee and I’m not a big Lea fan, I kind of like this match-up. Cory has dated girls like Taylor Swift in the past, and hey, dude is almost 30 years old. I hope their relationship is for real, and I hope it’s solid too. Because if Lea gets her heart broken, it will be a MESS.

    I kind of like her. I know she’s a raging poseur, but you know, in an industry jam-packed with people complaining loudly about their privacy while showing up on every red carpet going… someone openly LOVING being famous and the whole gig and almost visibly giddy with joy over it all is refreshing. I dunno. Corey seems the kind of so-laid-back-he’s-horizontal type, and they can go really well with hyper people. He may chill her out and her zip him up. And unlike his character, he seems pretty smart in the few interviews I’ve seen (I lost interest in Glee in the 2nd series) so he may be able to moderate her a little through maturity and smarts, too. I’m not saying she’s stupid, but she doesn’t seem as sharp as he is, either. If he thinks her energy and zip is endearing and she actually listens to what he has to say, it could work really well. (In my fantasy world in which I actually know either of these people, you understand.)

    It may all be cobblers, but I think it sounds kind of cute, if true.

    My first thought was that I’m surprised Monteith was eating vegetarian spaghetti (which it had to be since he fed it to her) but maybe she has converted him.

    My second thought was that I wonder if he knows what he has gotten himself into. Could end very badly.

  3. Tapioca says:

    Wow, a girl throws herself at ASHTON KUTCHER – a man who would probably stick his unprotected penis in an ant hill – and gets turned down?

    That’s gotta hurt the ego!

    I call publicity stunt. The show is slipping in the ratings and this is just to revive interest. Besides, Lea Michele doesn’t do anything quietly.

    • mia girl says:

      Yeah, was thinking the same thing. My daughter watches the program and I think their two characters just got engaged, right? Maybe they are hoping off-screen rumors will fuel ratings for the onscreen romance.

      On the other hand, I’ve become cynical about being cynical about costar romances. Seems many of us cry “showmance” if any costars are involved off-screen; it immediately throws doubt into the mix… but it stands to reason that you would get involved with someone from work, like a large part of the population does at their job… we just don’t work on movie/TV sets or have paparazzi following us around to chronicle our offices romances. So, for now I’ll say I believe they are a couple.

      Plus, I’m considering giving up cynicism for Lent. ;)

      • Kate #2 says:

        Wait, their characters got engaged…? Aren’t they meant to be 16 or so?

        I knew there was a reason I don’t bother to watch this anymore. And yeah, if that’s the deal onscreen the offscreen situation does sound awfully convenient. (When I stopped watching, his character was dating Dianna Agron’s again. Glee isn’t on a terrestrial/free to view channel here now, so not many people do watch it these days, and there are no adverts to catch you up on what’s happening, either.)

      • Marianne says:

        If you’ve been watching Glee, then you’ll know that their parents are against the marriage.

        I think they have been showing a realistic side to it.

  5. paola says:

    If this is true..it’s one of the UGLIEST couples out there. sorry

  6. Katie says:

    I don’t buy it. Glee has squandered all of its talent and its potential, and now they are desperate to stay popular.

  7. Jaye says:

    She’s so try hard-y and he’s so…meh. :::Kanye Shrug:::

  8. Marianne says:

    This is Life & Style we’re talking about. Doubt it’s true. I know there are some die hard Finnchel fans who would love this…but I just see them more like brother and sister.

    I’ll believe it when they confirm it.

  9. Nev says:

    she is sooo pretty in the second pic.

    l enjoy her.

    pose-off’s and singing and all.

  10. Meow Mix says:

    The way she tries so hard reminds me of Jennifer Love Hewitt.

  11. Abby says:

    I watch Glee and love it, so I’m hoping this isn’t just publicity. I don’t see them together at all, just like their characters. But they both seem like nice people.

  12. Stubbylove says:

    A look into my fortune-telling 8-ball says “Lifetime movies are in your future”.

  13. Amy says:

    I like him. I don’t watch Glee anymore (lost interest after the first season) and his character is kind of stupid. But he is so cute, seems laidback and like a great guy to hang out with (maybe because he is Canadian?). I never liked Lea’s character and she comes off as annoying. Maybe he cam make her more likeable.

  14. dena says:

    This might be all for publicity, since Glee is keeping Lindsay Lohan company at the drain they’re both swirling around.

  15. Happy21 says:

    I watch Glee and enjoy it for entertainment purposes only! I don’t read into the storylines anymore than I have to and admit its far fetched. I don’t really see these two in a real life relationship but who knows, they have been working side by side for three years, they probably know each other pretty well by now.

    And I like Lea Michele and don’t really understand the hate. She is a pose-hard for sure but she’s cute and is enjoying this part of her life. Nothin’ wrong with that!

  16. Jover says:

    Katie and others there have been a number of articles detailing that Glee has last almost a quarter of its viewership this season; with that kind of loss I don’t see how it can stay on much longer; watched it the first season and grew tired of gimmicks, lazy plots, etc. I will be suprised if it’s around by next year; it really was never as popular of the mountains of pr would lead you to believe.

  17. Maritza says:

    They look very cute together, I like this couple a lot.

  18. Jay says:

    SMH. Good luck Cory “dating” a coworker (boundaries!) and a rebounding serial dater diva. Come on dude didn’t you learn anything from recovery?
