Lea has previously discussed their relationship to close friend and podcast host Becca Tobin. "At the end of the day, this industry is really tough and the only way to really get through is to create a solid unit. We've stood by each other through anything that was thrown our way," she said to the Fempire.

"[Matt] is a such a great man that he would never really let anything like that ever crack our lovely little core that we've created."

My happy place! 💪🏻💦😀
