A drag queen who worked at the bar of Lauren Boebert’s infamous Beetlejuice date has claimed the two have been dating for months – despite her claims she dumped him because he is a Democrat.
Kendra Matic, who performed at Quinn Gallagher’s Aspen bar in January, told TMZ on Thursday that it is common knowledge around town that they have been dating for months.
“I know they’ve been dating for a while, months,” she claimed.
Shaking her head, she added, “First date and someone touches your breasts like that?”
The Colorado congresswoman and Quinn Gallagher sparked outrage on September 10 after they were caught on camera fondling each other during a Beetlejuice performance in Denver and were kicked out of the theater.

Lauren Boebert was spotted with a mystery man as she was kicked out of a tour performance of the musical ‘Beetlejuice’ this weekend in Denver
DailyMail.com can reveal the man is Colorado resident and Aspen bar owner Quinn Gallagher, 46, who had been dating Boebert for months
Matic stood up for Boebert’s date, defending him and calling him a “great” boss.
‘He’s a great guy. He opened the door for. He treated me very kindly.’
But Matic expressed his disapproval of Gallagher’s choice of partner.
“I don’t like this relationship because I don’t like this girl.”
“If he calls me, of course I always get back to work with him,” she added.
Matic called out Boebert for her “terrible” rhetoric, saying, “I don’t know why people worry so much about what you do in bed.”
“At least I do that in my bed and not in a theater.”
Gallagher and Boebert were enjoying a date night last week when their behavior during a performance of the musical Beetlejuice — vaping, singing along and taking photos — caused complaints that got them kicked out of the venue.
DailyMail.com unveiled Boebert’s mystery man as Democrat bar owner Quinn Gallagher, 46, – a divorced father who has reportedly been secretly dating the controversial Republican, 36, for months
Photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com show Gallagher in his hometown on the outskirts of Aspen, where he owns Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar
According to a well-placed source, “I always thought Quinn was a cool guy and a Democrat. His parents would be shocked because they are absolutely blue’
Boebert, who wore a tight gold dress, promptly left the theater with her husband as they were escorted to the lobby
A source told Dailymail.com: ‘It’s very surprising. I always thought Quinn was a cool guy and a Democrat. His parents would be shocked because they are definitely blue.”
Footage shows Boebert arguing with security as Gallagher affably walks a few feet behind her, carrying her bag in one hand and a drink in a plastic container in the other. He waves to several people as they are led to the exit.
Boebert is then seen holding her new lover’s hand as she dances and twirls for him in the street as they make their way through the city – a three-hour drive from Gallagher’s home near Aspen and even further from Boebert’s home in Silt, Colorado.
In photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, Gallagher is seen in his hometown on the outskirts of Aspen, where he co-owns Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar with partner Pat Flannigan.
Boebert, who is at the start of her campaign for a third term and represents Colorado’s third congressional district, made a big impression Sunday evening
The two were seen holding hands as they left the area and walked down the street
The pair opened the bar billed as ‘rustic and unpretentious’ in April 2016, but only became co-owners last year.
Boebert’s divorce from Jason, 36, her husband of 18 years and father of her four children, is still ongoing following the couple’s shocking split in May.
Boerbert insisted at the time that she had been faithful throughout her marriage.
In her statement, the second-year congresswoman said, “It is with a heavy weight on my heart that I have filed for divorce from my husband. I am grateful for our years of marriage together and for our beautiful children, who all deserve privacy and love as we go through this process.
“I have always been faithful in my marriage and I believe strongly in marriage, which makes this announcement all the more difficult.”
It’s not clear when Gallagher and Boebert’s relationship became romantic, but the bar owner is originally from the congresswoman’s hometown of Rifle, Colorado, and still has family there.
Lauren Boebert spoke out after Dailymail.com revealed that the identity behind her mystery date was an Aspen bar owner and a Democrat who hosted drag shows.
Boebart told TMZ that she would not have a second date with him. “I learned to check party affiliations before going on a date,” she said.
She called him a “great man” but said they would not date again.
