At last! Life & Style can exclusively confirm that Glee co-stars Cory Monteith and Lea Michele have finally taken their relationship to the next level offscreen!
Multiple eyewitnesses tell the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands Wednesday, that Lea, 25, and Cory, 29, got cozy on Valentine’s Day during a romantic date at Il Covo in LA.
“They were into each other all night,” an eyewitness reveals to Life & Style. “She was very happy, flirting and touching Cory a lot. He just stared at her with puppy-dog eyes.” The duo didn’t hold back from showing their affection, giggling and holding handing hands throughout the evening. The eyewitness tells Life & Style that Cory fed his valentine spaghetti and Lea reciprocated by affectionately rubbing her date’s back. The couple were spotted again on a date at the Ritz-Carlton on Feb. 17. “Cory is totally into her,” a Glee crew member confesses to Life & Style.
Lea split from her longtime beau Theo Stockman in September, and the actress and Cory were caught canoodling on the Glee set in November. But the lovebirds’ chemistry has been undeniable from the start. “For me, if it was going to happen with anybody, it would have happened with Cory,” she admitted in 2011. And with grueling 16-hour workdays and an infectious engagement plotline, the duo have become closer than ever. “As long as I get to have scenes with Cory, it makes me really happy,” Lea has said.
The stars’ reps didn’t respond when asked for comment.
She’s lying on one side of her bed curled up on her side, on top of the covers. As she mentally going over their fight in her head and reprimanding herself for some of the hurtful things she said to him. She sighs deeply when she hears her bedroom door open.
“Hey.” Finn calls out cautiously.
She opens her eyes to see him standing at the entrance of her room, one of her Cosmo magazine rolled up in his hands, as he looks at her apprehensively, shifting from foot to foot.
“Hey.” She says quietly as she sits ups and beckons him to sit next to her.
He pushes the door closed, then places the magazine on her dresser walking over to her and sitting on the bed, their thighs touching. She’s silently glad that he’s even sitting here, she’d convince herself the few minutes he was gone, that he’d storm back into the room grab his stuff and leave. The fact that he’s sitting next to her and from his entire demeanour she knows he feels the same way that she does, which is apologetic, makes her very grateful.
“I’m sorry.” They say and they same time, which only further confirms her suspicions.
