Lea Michele seems unable to escape rumor suggesting she is behaving like a diva off-screen. Just recently, the Rachel Berry of "Glee" was accused of being rude to a girl. According to E! Online, she mocked the girl "for no reason" when hanging out with Chord Overstreet and Harry Shum Jr. at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival last Saturday, April 16.

Dishing on the alleged incident, an eyewitness first recalled, "Harry introduced himself to two girls as Jerry from San Luis Obispo and said he was unemployed. The girls played along even though they knew who he was." When one of the girls jokingly called him over using his fake name, the 24-year-old actress "started laughing and imitated her in a high-pitched voice".

This isn't the first time Lea is hit with story of her acting rude to others. Back in early January, "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld revealed in an interview with J-14 magazine she was left in tears after the "New Year's Eve" actress gave her a cold shoulder when she was asking her for an autograph.

Lea has since offered her apology to the teen actress. To Gossip Cop, she said, "I heard Hailee was upset and I feel terrible. The Glee schedule is so jam-packed that the PA probably pulled me so that I wouldn't be late to set. I never meant to hurt her feelings. She's an extraordinary talent and I look forward to meeting her one day."

This is just ridiculous! People are just looking for any reason to call Lea a diva! I doubt she was mocking the girl and was probably laughing at Harry Shun pretending to be Jerry.

This is just one big lie. I mean Lea is so nice and she gives tons of time to her fans. Maybe she has had one slip, but she is so busy, so I get it!

Lea is awesome. She's done a ton of good things for her fans. I'm not even saying this because I'm a fan of hers, but the fact that all this hate is directed at Lea in particular really pisses me off. With Hailee Steinfeld, Lea was working and couldn't sign autographs and in this situation we don't even know if this 'eyewitness' is telling the truth. Stop hating on Lea just because you're nitpicking and get a real story.

I am sorry but she always takes time for her fans, so many people posted pictures with her at coachella. Notice how all of these diva rumors are from e news. She wasn't mocking the girls she was mocking Harry Shum since he was pretending to be another person.

How is it ok to be gossips and talk about other people but if Lea does something she is mean and rude. I am sorry spread unfounded gossip is mean and rude. Hypocrites. The glee boys took pictures of a girl and then mocked how she was sitting and put it on twitter she was not ok with it, but no one is reporting that they are mean or rude.
