Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly livid over reports that she had an affair with Miami billionaire Jeff Soffer. PageSix reports that Gwyneth has told friends not to talk to Vanity Fair about a story they're running on her regarding her potential relationship, emailing friends to say, "If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline."
Researchers on the story have been asking sources in Miami about Gwyneth and Jeff, who owns the Fontainebleau Hotel and recently married Elle Macpherson. One source noted, "Vanity Fair is asking if Gwyneth had an affair with Jeff back in 2008 when he reopened the Fontainebleau. He flew her in for the party, and she stayed at his house."
Gwnyeth, of course, has been married to Chris Martin of Coldplay since 2003 and they have two kids. At the time, The Post raised speculation about theaa potential relationship after Gwyneth attended a Victoria's Secret party in 2008 and spent the whole time "closed off in a private section with Soffer." She reportedly got a private tour of the hotel and then joined Jeff on his yacht the next day with Kate Hudson. Chris and Gwyneth were having trouble at the time.
A spokesman for Gwyneth angrily denied the affair and said, "Jeff is a longtime friend of Gwyneth's and there was no romantic relationship with him at all, He flew many of his friends to Miami that weekend – not just Gwyneth."
