Lea Michele's new boyfriend insists he is a dating coach.

The 'Glee' actress reportedly confronted Matthew Paetz this week over online reports he worked for male companionship website Cowboys4Angels, but he told her he was never a gigolo.

According to TMZ, Matthew admitted he went on ''a few dates'' with female clients but only as research so he could understand what the men experienced and coach them through.

Lea - who was left devastated last year by the death of her boyfriend Cory Monteith - is said to have believed his account and they are staying together after he promised never to do it again.

However, the website insists Matthew went on ''more than a few'' dates with female clients for almost a year, charging $350 an hour for his time under the alias of Christian.

His profile has been deactivated since he began dating the 27-year-old beauty - who he met on the set of her music video for 'On My Way' - and it's thought Matthew's last assignment was a weekend with a client at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in California in April.

Prior to his profile being hidden, Lea's beau billed himself as a certified life coach, dating expert and massage therapist.
