Washington: ‘Glee’ co-stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are reportedly in a romantic relationship with each other.
The pair had sparked dating rumours after they were spotted enjoying Valentine’s Day together at Los Angeles eatery Il Covo, where they were seen holding hands and “flirting”.
‘‘They were into each other all night. She was very happy, flirting and touching Cory a lot. He just stared at her with puppy-dog eyes,’’ Contactmusic quoted an eyewitness as telling Life ‘n’ Style magazine.
The onlooker revealed that the pair, who play onscreen couple Rachel Berry and Finn Hudson in the musical TV drama series, were holding hands throughout the evening and at one stage Monteith fed Michele spaghetti and she affectionately rubbed his back in return.
“Cory is totally into her,” a ‘Glee’ crew member added.
The 25-year-old beauty had split from Broadway star Theo Stockman, her boyfriend of 17 months, in September last year.
Michele had earlier admitted that if she was going to get romantically involved with any other cast members then it would be with the 29-year-old hunk.
“For me, if it was going to happen with anybody, it would have happened with Cory,” she had said.
“As long as I get to have scenes with Cory, it makes me really happy,” she added.
