With a magazine feature that could possibly expose a romantic relationship between Gwyneth and her billionaire friend set to be released, the actress tried to get ahead of the story on Oct. 18, calling any allegations “completely false.” What do you think?
Vanity Fair is reportedly not making life easy for Gwyneth Paltrow. The magazine has been digging into a “friendship” she has with model Elle Macpherson’s husband, billionaire Jeff Soffer, and they may have uncovered an affair, according to Page Six. But before the story even hit newsstands, Gwyneth released a statement refuting the claim.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Cheating Claim Is ‘Completely False’
“It’s completely false,” a spokesperson for the 41-year-old actress told the Daily Mail. “Jeff is a longtime friend of Gwyneth’s and there was no romantic relationship with him at all.”
Vanity Fair’s claim spawned from a weekend in 2008 when Jeff threw a party in Miami, Fla. for the reopening of his hotel, the Fontainebleu, Page Six reports. Gwyneth was reportedly the guest of honor, and the two were seen getting cozy at the party and she allegedly slept at his house afterwards.
“He flew many of his friends to Miami that weekend — not just Gwyneth,” the actress’ rep explained.
The magazine’s reporters have allegedly been asking Gwyneth’s friends and acquaintances, as well as Miami socialites, about the couple, but Gwyn has reportedly sent e-mails to her friends saying, “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline.”
Will ‘Vanity Fair’ Expose Gwyneth Paltrow?
Gwyneth has been married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin since 2003 — they have two children together. Jeff recently wed Elle in July 2013.
Despite Gwyneth’s fierce denial of the affair, Vanity Fair seems confident that they’re onto something. “We have a very good writer and it’ll run,” the magazine’s editor-in-chief Graydon Carter told Page Six.
And you have to admit — the fact that Gwyneth has jumped up and denied the allegation before it’s even published makes it seem like she knows Vanity Fair is getting too close to a secret.
