Glee star Lea Michele has had her Twitter account hacked and the “tweet” announced her pregnancy with the hashtag #babyboy. Like her co-star Chris Colfer the 27 year-old actress was the victim of a Glee Twitter attack. Colfer’s tweet told fans that he had been taken off the Fox network show and that explanations would follow.
Whomever it was who hacked the two Glee stars’ Twitter accounts may have been playing a practical joke on the two actors, or in Michele’s case it may have been the fact that she was spotted out and about with her new fella Matthew Paetz at the end of last month.
Paetz is a “lifestyle” coach and the first person that Lea has dated since the death of her Glee costar and real life love interest Cory Monteith. In July last year, Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room from a deadly combination of heroin and alcohol.
Both Michele and the cast of Glee were shocked and stunned by the 31 year-old actor’s solitary death in Canada not too long after he had finished a short stint in rehab. Though Lea continued to work on the award winning Fox network show, her personal life was kept very low profile while she grieved.
Since Cory’s death Lea has forced herself to move forward with her life. She met Paetz while filming her music video On My Way just after she had attended the Coachella Music Festival at Indio, California. Matthew appeared in the video as one of the singer’s friends. The two have been spotted out together a few times since then. This pregnancy Twitter Glee hack on Lea Michele’s account may be wishful thinking from a devout fan.
Lea and Chris Colfer who both star in the show had fake tweets posted on their accounts and Michele proved just how far she has come since Cory Monteith’s premature death last year. She joked that the twitter hack was her’s and Colfer’s fault as they had used their cat’s names as the Twitter password.
Before Michele’s pregnancy tweet, Fox network came online to announce that Chris’s tweet was not true. They backed up his assertion that his account had been hacked and according to the network, Colfer was not leaving the show and that they were looking forward to working with him this season.
In the case of Chris’s account being hacked it could be in retaliation for his earlier statement that Glee should probably finish now as a series. He was also quoted as saying that the show was incredibly hard to produce and that everyone on the series knew that this was the “reality” of the situation. Most fans of the show would probably not agree that it is time to stop making the show.
While Colfer’s tweet may have been “payback” for his claim that Glee should finish, Lea Michele’s pregnancy Twitter hack may have been a sort of celebration for the performer who has apparently moved on from Monteith’s death and found a new love that her fans approve of. Either that or the two stars really did use their cat’s names as their passwords.
