Matthew Morrison & Lea Michele Are Not Hooking Up

Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele

'Glee' costars deny rumors that they're dueting off-screen. In bed.

It seems that Star magazine is cashing in on the Glee craze by creating a bit of drama where there most likely is none. Not that a famous man cheating on his girlfriend with a younger co-star is such an improbable event, but we just can't buy this latest story that Matthew Morrison is having a behind-the-scenes affair with Lea Michele. Seriously, Mr. Schue and Rachel Berry? That's crazy! This sounds like some terrible plot to destroy glee club! Who's Star's editor-in-chief—Sue Sylvester?

The story goes that Matthew's ex-fiancee Chrishell Stause broke off their engagement in 2007 because she "believed he was seeing other people and just wasn't ready to fully commit." Specifically, it was a rumor that Matthew and Lea—then "Broadway buddies"—were more than just friends that prompted Chrishell to finally end their three-year relationship just months before their wedding date. 7 Questions To Ask Before Trusting A New Partner

Hmm. So, this woman suspected that her boyfriend was cheating on her, had no proof, but bailed on her wedding because of a rumor? We're confused. Are we supposed to feel bad for her? Actually...are we supposed to believe any of this? 

According to Matthew and Lea, we shouldn't believe it, because the idea that the two close pals would have an affair is "laughable." Matthew even suggests that perhaps Chrishell didn't even talk to Star, insisting that he has "a great relationship with her." 

Matthew may now be finding out that there is a bad side to being on a hit TV show but says, "I feel like I can handle this stuff because I don't really care. I've never gotten into tabloids...but I just feel bad for other people in my life who are getting dragged into it." Still, this gossip is quite a change of pace for Matthew, who had previously been dogged by the gay rumors that face every song and dance man. So, don't be surprised if the next rumor has Matthew secretly romancing Chris Colfer! 9 Signs He's Gay
