So it turns out Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) dated Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester) in real life. O.M.G.
The 27-year-old actress, who denied being romantically involved with her Glee co-star in the past, has finally confessed that the pair dated in her new book Brunette Ambition.
But Lea, who was in a relationship with her late co-star Cory Monteith from late 2011 until he passed away from an alcohol and heroin overdose in July 2013, insists she dated Matthew, 35, long before they began working together on the set of Glee.
She wrote: "When we shot the pilot [for Glee], 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."
Lea denied rumors she was involved with Matthew as they filmed the first series of Glee in 2010, claiming the pair enjoyed a "close" friendship instead.
She said at the time: "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."
Addressing the same rumors, Matthew previously said: "We were literally on set and I got a call from my publicist [about Lea], and [Lea] got a call a minute later and we looked at each other like, 'What the f--k?' It's so laughable."
