Lea Michele and Matthew Paetz hold hands during hike in LA

By Gina DiFalco,

Lea Michele and her new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, seem to be getting closer if recent paparazzi pictures are any indication. The couple were seen holding hands during a hike in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Michele and Paetz, who were first rumored to be dating in June, also just got back from a romantic vacation in Italy.

She tweeted on July 17, “Ciao Italy! You are so beautiful! I'm so happy to be here!” and also seemed to mix business with pleasure, attending the Giffoni Film Festival.

Michele posted no shortage of bikini pictures while yachting in Italy, but paparazzi also caught the Glee star cozying up to Paetz.

E! Online reports the new couple spent a lot of their time off the Amalfi coast in Italy.

Michele met Paetz on the set of her music video for “On My Way.” It’s rumored that he was a male gigolo before meeting Michele, charging $350 an hour, $6,000 for a weekend and $17,500 for a week of “companionship.”
