John Mayer has a crush on Lea Michele.
The 36-year-old rocker, who split from Katy Perry three months ago, has reportedly been texting the Glee star nonstop and wants to go on a date with her.
"John's had a crush on Lea for a while. He constantly tells her how beautiful she is," a source said.
But while Lea, 27, is very flattered by the attention, she isn't interested in dating anyone just yet following her boyfriend Cory Monteith's tragic death from a heroin overdose last July. "She just wants someone to have fun with. She isn't about to give her heart away to someone like him," the insider said.
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.
"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," she wrote.
Lea - who plays Rachel Berry on the hit FOX TV show - denied rumors she was involved with Matthew as they filmed the first series of Glee in 2010, claiming the pair enjoyed a "close" friendship instead.
Lea Michele has posted a touching tribute to late boyfriend Cory Monteith on his birthday yesterday.
The Glee star described the actor, who died in July last year of a drug overdose, as having "the biggest heart and most beautiful smile" and shared a photograph of the pair together. The black and white image, posted on Lea's Twitter page, shows the couple sharing a joke, and she accompanied it with the caption, "The biggest heart and most beautiful smile.. In all of our hearts.. We love you so. Happy Birthday [sic]."
Fans showed their support for Lea and claimed they too were still "heartbroken" over the actor's death. "This photo broke my heart. i miss him so much. Stay strong love i love you. Happy birthday angel Cory [sic]," one wrote.
Lea Michele has offered her support to Zac Efron following his recent rehab stint.
The Glee actress - whose boyfriend Cory Monteith died from a heroin and alcohol overdose in July - has reached out to her New Year's Eve co-star following revelations he has been battling cocaine addiction and has vowed to do her best to help him stay sober. "Lea called Zac and told him, 'I'm here if you need me.' She urged him to get serious about having a 24-hour sobriety coach and to only spend time with people who care about his welfare. Lea must feel sad that she wasn't able to prevent Cory from relapsing. She knows Zac well and would hate to see him go down the same path," a source said.
Zac was delighted to hear from his friend and has promised to stay in regular contact with her. "Zac was really glad to hear from her. They have plans to go on a yoga outing together in LA later this year and he promised to discuss his state of mind with her weekly by phone or email," the source added.
Michelle Williams has reached out to Lea Michele.
Lea, 26, has been struggling to cope since her boyfriend Cory Monteith, 31, died from a heroin and alcohol overdose last month and Michelle - whose former boyfriend, Heath Ledger, died of an overdose in 2008 - has reached out to her. "Michelle is probably the only person who knows what Lea is going through. Lea was deeply touched by the gesture. Michelle made a huge impact and Lea has been feeling better. There are a lot of parallels between Heath and Cory so Michelle can really understand Lea," a source said.
Lea Michele has made a pilgrimage to the hotel where her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, died.
The devastated Glee star made her first public outing since 31-year-old Cory was found dead from a heroin and alcohol overdose last weekend to the Vancouver hotel where he passed away. According to an eyewitness, Lea, 26, was "out of her mind" with grief when she stopped at a makeshift memorial to the star outside the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel.
Rik Feydik, who claims to be a friend of Cory's, spotted Lea about an hour after the family left the body at the hospital. "Lea was in the back seat of one of the vehicles sitting between two bodyguards. She was wearing her signature huge black shades. Lea never got out of the vehicle but she stayed parked in in front of the memorial for five to seven minutes," Feydik said. When Rik approached the cars they raced off. "They were driving crazy," he added.
Lea Michele has landed a book deal.
The Glee actress has been commissioned by Harmony Books, an imprint of Random House's Crown Publishing Group, to write Brunette Ambition, a "part memoir, part how-to and part style-guide" which will portray her life "from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television."
"There wasn't a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today. But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm and hard work to make your dreams come true," she said in a statement.
Linking to an article about her book deal, an excited Lea wrote on Twitter, "So excited to FINALLY get to share my exciting news with you all!!! #BRUNETTEAMBITION (sic)."
"My first fake pregnancy rumor! I've finally made it!"

Cory Monteith has lost 20lbs thanks to his girlfriend. The Glee actor dropped the weight he gained earlier this year thanks to some encouraging words of advice from his co-star and girlfriend Lea Michele.
"When he brought Lea home to meet his family they were making fun of him in front of her. She's tell him she loves him no matter what but it was bothering him and he did something about it. She's vegan and eats organic and she totally changed his eating habits. He's exercising too. He loves the way he looks now," a source told In Touch.
Cory recently cited cutting down on chocolate and more exercise as the key to his weight loss. "I'm doing CrossFit and I'm eating fewer Snickers bars," he explained.
Cory also has a positive effect on Lea, and friends say they've noticed she is happier since she's been with him. "Cory is definitely having a positive effect on Lea. She's much less miserable these days," a source said.
Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are moving in together.
The Glee co-stars - who have been dating since Lea split with her boyfriend Theo Stockman in February - are reportedly planning to set up home together at the actress' $1.4 million pad in Los Angeles.
"Lea is telling everyone she's never felt more sure about anything. She's ready for it all, starting with living together and planning their future," a source told Star.
The couple are said to be serious about each other and Lea previously admitted she would only ever consider a relationship with him if it was the real deal, because she didn't want to ruin their friendship: "I think if [an on set romance] was ever going to be an issue, it would have happened by now. I mean, for me, if it was going to happen with anybody, it would have happened with Cory. The moment I met him, I thought, 'This boy is very cute.' But he's like my big brother. He's such a great friend, and I am so happy working with him every day. I'm glad nothing has ever happened because it would have ruined something if it didn't work out."
