Lea Michele has been called a mean girl by Hollywood gossips ever since finding fame on Glee.

But now, at seven months pregnant and caught up in a storm of incredibly damning headlines over her behaviour, Michele, 33, has spent the past few days desperately trying to make amends.

“She’s had a real wake-up call,” a friend of the star told The Post. “It’s never easy to hear people speak about you this way. It’s a total shock.”

“Lea was a bitch to a lot of people who are now taking the opportunity to come forward,” said one industry source who has worked with her. “She may not be the nicest person, but she’s not racist, sexist or transphobic. I would say she has behavioural issues that she’s dealing with.

“She is listening, she hears what everyone says and wants to apologise. This is her past and she wants to handle things responsibly.”

On Monday, Glee co-star Samantha Ware, who is black, tweeted of Michele: “Remember when you made my first television gig a living hell?!?! Cause I’ll never forget. I believe you told everyone that if you had the opportunity you would ‘s**t in my wig!’ amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood.”

The post came after Michele used social media to lend support to the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of George Floyd’s death, and promptly blew up online — prompting a glut of former co-stars to come forward with their own stories.

Gerard Canonico branded Michele a “nightmare” behind the scenes of the 2006 Broadway show Spring Awakening, while Heather Morris called her “very unpleasant” to work with on Glee, and Elizabeth Aldrich — Michele’s understudy for Ragtime on Broadway all the way back in 1998 — said: “I used to cry every night from the mean and manipulative things she would do. She was 12. She was terrifying.”

Glee co-star Melissa Benoist liked Ware’s post, while Amber Riley posted a GIF of herself sipping tea — a sign someone is ready for gossip — amid the drama.

The Post is told that Michele reached out to Glee castmates, including Ware and Riley, as well as co-stars from Spring Awakening.

But some say it may be too late. Meal kit company HelloFresh has already dropped Michele as a spokesman. And her public apology after Ware’s remarks was trashed by many online, including Ware.

Actor Dabier Snell, who won a guest spot on Glee, told The Post how she had him banished from lunch on set. “I was invited to sit down with the rest of the cast members by Darren Criss, and made to feel welcome. I also knew Chris Colfer as well, so he was like, ‘Go ahead, come sit with us and chat!’ … Five to 10 minutes after we sat down and had a conversation, I was pulled (aside by an assistant director) and told one of the cast members did not want me to sit there, because she felt I don’t belong.

“I later found out it was (Michele) who said that. Everybody else was cool. I couldn’t tell Darren or Chris because they work with her and she has a lot of power. It felt like … if I said something, I probably wasn’t going to be on the show. I just zipped my mouth. I went back to my trailer and cried a bit, I won’t lie.”

Others who have worked with Michele say she’s just not nice. Lea Michele Broadway

A guest at the Time 100 gala in 2010, where Michele was feted, told The Post: “Lea was such a brat!” When society photographer Patrick McMullan approached her to take a photograph and asked her name, Michele allegedly rolled her eyes and replied: “Sarah Palin.” Laughing, McMullan said: “No, really, tell me your name.” to which Michele said, “Taylor Swift.” McMullan, according to New York magazine, told her: “F**k you.”

While on Glee, she signed a solo deal with Columbia records. Sources recall how, during one trip to London for the label, she demanded to stay in a particular five-star hotel of her choosing despite being told there wasn’t a budget for that.

A source who worked on the Glee hair and make-up team told The Post, “What I saw was that (Michele) was mean, unfriendly. She was rude, in a general sense. She would come in late all the time, she was not approachable.”
