Lea Michele continues to be under the gun, so to speak — and it doesn’t look like things will be letting up any time soon for her, either!
The former Glee star is still reeling after several old co-stars came forward with horror stories about her behavior on the set of various productions over the last few weeks. And now, the rot continues to spread — this time to the beauty industry, where insiders are keen to slam the actress for her years of being “toxic” and “difficult” within that industry, as well! Seriously??
According to a report that’s popped up in Page Six, beauty industry insiders and longtime employees of some high-end brands within the niche are starting to put the TV actress on blast, too. It all apparently goes back to 2012, when Lea Michel signed a reported $1 million deal to be the face of L’Oréal. One of her very first responsibilities was to give a short on-camera interview about her beauty routine — but she allegedly threw an “epic temper tantrum” during taping.
According to a source (below):
“All the questions and answers were agreed [on] in advance, she just had to answer five questions on camera about her hair routine to a crew hired by L’Oréal. But two questions in, Lea just stood up, said she was done and walked out, leaving everyone standing there in shock. The head of L’Oréal asked if she was coming back, and her mother said, ‘No, she’s not.’ This is who she is. Given how small the industry is, the word has spread across other beauty brands.”
Things apparently got so bad with her behavior that, despite being inked to a five-year deal, she was replaced one year into it with actress Blake Lively. Oops!!!!
Now, other insiders have denied the allegation here, for what it’s worth. One person who claims to be on set at that point in time claims they “don’t ever remember her being difficult” on or off-set while working, so it’s tough to know who to trust based on this report.
But seriously, with all the dirt flying around on Lea Michele in general, there are plenty of fans who just aren’t going to give her the benefit of the doubt with this stuff, ya know?
What do U think about it, Perezcious readers?! Think there’s some truth here with the L’Oréal story, or not?? Sound OFF with your take on everything down in the comments (below)!!!
