To make matters worse, the singer feels betrayed considering she stuck up for Paetz when friends were skeptical of his male escort past. Obviously, L.M.'s besties weren't immediately gung-ho about a man who received a paycheck from a place called Cowboys4Angels.
An insider said:
"He ended up being an opportunist who took advantage and broke up with her in a very heartless way. Her friends were always concerned with the relationship because of his past. All of those fears were validated."
On the flip side of the situation, Matt's buddies claim the "hot and cold" nature of the relationship had become too much:
"They've been hot and cold for some time now—one day fighting and the next madly in love. Friends believe that Lea's success came between the two and Matthew began to resent Lea. The two just stopped working. He wanted to get out of town for a bit to clear his head."
Hmm. No matter whose side you're on, it sounds like this split is for the best.
So, have YOU ever been broken up with in a similar fashion?
