Pregnancy Tweet False Lea Michele is Not Pregnant Now Second Glee Star to Have Twitter Account Hacked

Someone's got it out for the Glee cast. Like Chris Colfer before her, Lea Michele was the victim of a Twitter hacking on Friday, July 4. On the morning of Independence Day, a tweet was posted to Michele's account revealing her (fake) pregnancy.

"Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant," the tweet read. It was hashtagged "#BabyBoy." A rep for the Glee star -- who is currently dating lifestyle coach Matthew Paetz -- confirmed to US Weekly that she had been hacked. And Michele herself set the record straight on Twitter, first deleting the offending tweet and then joking about it in a follow-up message.

"I was HACKED!" the 27-year-old "If You Say So" singer wrote. "Guess @chriscolfer and I should have known better than to make our passwords the names of our cats." Colfer, 24, made headlines one day earlier, on Thursday, July 3, when he appeared to announce that he had been fired from Glee. "Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE," a tweet on his account read. "Explanations will come shortly..."

The explanation, it turned out, was that someone had hijacked his account. Colfer was actually on an airplane when all the action went down, and only found out about the excitement upon landing. "Apparently I missed quite the INTERESTING day while aboard my flight," he quipped. "I'm just glad I wasn't 'killed by a fruit truck' again."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
