Lea Michele has admitted dating Matthew Morrison before he became her Glee co-star.
In her new book, the actress confirmed rumours that she did go out with Matthew - the TV show's Will Schuester - Mail Online reported.
The 27-year-old, who was in a relationship with Cory Monteith, the show's Finn Hudson, before he died of an accidental heroin overdose last July, spilled the beans in her new book Brunette Ambition.
She said of getting the role of Rachel Berry in Glee: "When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley and Chris Colfer for the first time."
But she added: "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 had dismissed rumours that the two had a past, saying: "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."
