Lea Michele she was in a relationship with her 'Glee' co-star Matthew Morrison before they began working together on the FOX TV show.

Lea Michele dated Matthew Morrison. The 27-year-old actress - who denied being romantically involved with her Glee co-star in the past - has finally confessed that the pair dated in her new book Brunette Ambition. However, Lea - who was in a relationship with her late co-star Cory Monteith from late 2011 until he passed away form an alcohol and heroin overdose in July 2013 - insists she dated Matthew (35) long before they began working together on the set of Glee.

'Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we'd actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat'

She wrote: "When we shot the pilot [for 'Glee'], I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time. I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we'd actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat."

Lea - who plays Rachel Berry on the hit FOX TV show - denied rumours she was involved with Matthew as they filmed the first series of Glee in 2010, claiming the pair enjoyed a "close" friendship instead.

She said at the time: "I've known Matt for years. He's been a friend of mine from New York. People are going to make things up. I think it's just because we really are so close."

Addressing the same rumours, Matthew previously said: "We were literally on set and I got a call from my publicist [about Lea], and [Lea] got a call a minute later and we looked at each other like, 'What the f--k?' It's so laughable."
