Lea Michele reveals in her new memoir Brunette Ambition that she once dated her Glee costar Matthew Morrison.

Lea Michele Dated Matthew Morrison

On Glee, Morrison played the New Directions glee club coach and Spanish teacher, who had a hot and cold relationship with standout singer Rachel Berry, played by Michele. Before they had a pupil-teacher relationship onscreen, the singers met while they were both working on Broadway.

“When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time,” Michele writes in Brunette Ambition, according to Us Weekly. “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.”

In Glee’s early days, before Michele began dating the late Cory Monteith, rumors swirled that she and Morrison had a romance going on. Both Michele, 27, and Morrison, 35, had both adamantly denied the rumors. Apparently, the romance had started and fizzled long before they both joined the cast of the Fox musical comedy.

Morrison is currently engaged to singer and model Renee Puente. Though they’ve been engaged since last June, Morrison has stated they likely won’t tie the knot until sometime in 2015. Michele hasn’t been linked to anyone since Monteith’s passing in July 2013.
