Lea Michele splits from boyfriend

Lea Michele and Matthew Paetz have split up.

The 'Scream Queens' actress and her boyfriend of almost two years ended their relationship earlier this month, and Lea has turned to her friends for support.

A source told PEOPLE: "Lea is surrounded by her friends, who have rallied around her and support her. She's doing fine, focusing on her work, her music and her album."

The pair met on the set of Lea's 2014 music video 'On My Way'.

Their relationship was Lea's first since the death of her boyfriend and colleague Cory Monteith in 2013 and Lea recently revealed she believes Cory would have approved of Matthew.

She said: "At the end of the day, this industry is really tough, and the only way to get through is to create a solid unit, and that's really what we've been since day one.

"We've stood by each other through anything that was thrown our way. [Matt] is a such a great man that he would never really let anything ever crack our lovely little core that we've created.

"He is very respectful towards the person that I was with, and that, again, is something I love so much about him. I really know that Cory would love him too."
