She suffered a tragic loss less than three years ago, when her then fiancé Cory Monteith died of a drug overdose, and now Lea Michele is going through more heartbreak after her split with boyfriend of nearly two years, Matthew Paetz.

According to a source Matthew, 30, broke up with the Scream Queens actress ‘all of a sudden and without warning’ and is now refusing to talk to Lea or any of her friends.

Cheers! 2016 I’m loving you so far! ????❤️

The 29-year-old is said to be devastated after ‘she got no reason or explanation for the split’, especially considering those closest to her were sceptical of her former beau.

After the meeting on the set of her On My Way music video, the pair started dating and moved in together after only three months.

It was then revealed that Matthew had previously worked for a service offering male ‘companionship’ for women – which didn’t sit well with Lea’s pals.

‘He ended up being an opportunist who took advantage and broke up with her in a very heartless way,’ an insider shared. ‘Her friends were always concerned with the relationship because of his past. All those fears were validated.’

I think it’s clear who the real star of the family is… So thankful for my loves… ❤️????

However, despite her friends’ reservations about her man, Lea was ‘very supportive of him’ and ‘didn’t think he should be punished for his past’.

‘Lea wanted to believe in love and wanted to believe the good in him,’ another source revealed.

Poor Lea! We hope she finds love again soon.
