Lea Michele is not pregnant, but she is second 'Glee' star Twitter hacked

It seemed the Lea Michele had real reasons to celebrate this Fourth of July as a post on her Twitter account announced the “Glee4” star’s pregnancy. That report was quickly debunked, according to TMZ on July 4, when the songbird’s reps revealed her Twitter account had been hacked.

Lea must have been quite surprised to wake up to the post she supposedly made. "Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy." Billboard indicated the tweet went out to Michele’s 4.4 million followers on July 4.

Her reps deny that Michele is pregnant. The 27-year-old recently went public with her new relationship with Matthew Paetz so a pregnancy wasn’t completely out of the realm of possibility. It is the first romance for the Michele since the death of the actress’s fiancé and former costar Cory Monteith from a heroin overdose.

Co-star Chris Colfer was hacked on Twitter the day before. The post he seemingly sent out said he’d been fired from “Glee” for “personal issues”. Fox jumped on the post within minutes and refuted its authenticity.

It would seem the stars of the hit show about the lives of a high school glee club and its graduates have some sort of superfan prankster on their tails. This makes 2 hackings in 2 days and both on Twitter, where news (and rumors) spread like wildfire.

Michele, who plays Rachel Berry, and Colfer who plays Kurt Hummel, are 2 fan favorites from the show. Both are original members of the cast and will be in the sixth and final season which will be going into production soon.

Is the prankster targeting only original cast members or just anyone associated with the show? Only time will tell. At this point it is unclear if both hack jobs were pulled off by the same person or not. It might be a good idea for the rest of the cast to consider beefing up their Twitter account passwords just in case.
