Lea Michele, Matthew Paetz


Lea Michele and Matthew Paetz have called it quits.

The Scream Queens star and her boyfriend of nearly two years have broken up, E! News confirms. Lea and Matthew met on the set of her music video for "On My Way" in April 2014.

"She's doing well and is focusing on friends and work," a source tells us. "This has been very sudden and hard, but if anyone can pick herself up it's Lea. She has a great network of friends."

Matthew was her Lea's first significant other since the tragic passing of Cory Monteith in summer 2013. They eventually moved in with each other, solidifying the seriousness of their relationship. It looks like the former Glee star has turned to girlfriends Emma Roberts and Becca Tobin for emotional support, as she shared several pics on her Instagram page of their girls' weekend.

Whether she was at Soul Cycle fitting in a workout or getting in her usual hot yoga session, Lea seemed to be getting through it all with a little help from her friends. "My girls! @itsbeccatobin @emmaroberts," she captioned one picture.

"Girls day at @coteshop w/ my girl @itsbeccatobin," she captioned another.

Nothing says a relaxing weekend like a couple of drinks and a spa day!

Keep on keeping on, Lea.
