Lea Michele has a new man in her life!

E! News can confirm that the Scream Queens star is dating fellow actor Robert Buckley. In fact, the pair was recently spotted getting close on a dinner date at Milo & Olive in Santa Monica, Calif..

"They were interlocked the whole time they were sitting at the counter, like arms wrapped around each other at their seats and rubbing each other's backs," an eyewitness shared with Us who first broke the news. "At one point…they had either just kissed or were super close talking."

Fans may recognize Robert as the hunky Clay Evans from One Tree Hill or Kirby Atwood from Lipstick Jungle. Currently, he is starring as Major Lilywhite in The CW series iZombie.

The new relationship comes several months after Lea and her ex Matthew Paetz called it quits after nearly two years of dating.

"She's doing well and is focusing on friends and work," a source shared with E! News after the surprising news broke. "This has been very sudden and hard, but if anyone can pick herself up it's Lea. She has a great network of friends."

Since the split, the actress has been more than busy working on her latest project with Ryan Murphy. In addition, Lea has been in the studio making some music magic.

"She is working on new music and has an album coming out that she is really trying hard to concentrate all her time on," a source recently revealed to E! News.

Perhaps this new man could provide even more inspiration for Lea.
