Lea Michele has made a name for herself in Hollywood after playing the role of Rachel Berry in the comedy-drama hit TV series ‘Glee’. However, multiple accusations have been thrown at her with regards to her toxic behavior towards her Glee co-actors.
At the conclusion of the said series in 2015, Michele was publicly called out for being a ‘brat,’ and the accusations seem to have never stopped, with tweets, podcasts, books, and even a documentary zoning in on the actress’ supposed “bad behavior” inside and outside of Glee. After a few years, did the Glee star find another victim in the industry?
Another controversy has been linked to Michele’s name after she allegedly ‘disrespected’ Stranger Things star Sadie Sink during their appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ last week. It started when Jimmy Fallon introduced the 20-year-old actress to the audience, taking center stage before joining American rapper Tariq Trotter.
As soon as Fallon welcomed Michele to the stage, she walked right into the middle of the two celebrities, forcing Sink to step aside and make room for her. Although it’s not a big deal for some casual viewers, many noticed how the Broadway star awkwardly moved Sink away so she could position herself in the center.
While the situation was kind of uncomfortable for Sadie Sink, she managed to handle it with poise and grace.
There’s no clarification yet on whether producers told the Stranger Things actress to step aside, but some viewers are convinced that Michele really wanted to be in the spotlight.

This is a new addition to the growing list of accusations and shade filed under her. Back in June 2020, Glee member Samantha Ware accused Michele of bullying and racism. She confirmed that Michele was problematic and always wanted to be the center of attention. Amber Riley, Heather Morris, and Alex Newell, who play the main characters, all agreed with her claims.
