On the heels of rumors that Vanity Fair will expose Gwyneth Paltrow's alleged affair with billionaire Jeff Soffer in a shocking tell-all article, new details suggest that she may have cheated on several A-list actors and her husband of almost 10 years.
Vanity Fair's unauthorized "takedown" story about Paltrow is nearing publication, and the bombshell article is rumored to include sordid details about her alleged affair with Soffer, a Miami business mogul. "Vanity fair is asking if Gwyneth had an affair with Jeff back in 2008 when he reopened the Fountainebleau," a source told Page Six. According to insiders, Paltrow and Soffer got too close for comfort at the high society soiree, and the pair "remained closed off in a private section" during the event.
"He flew her in for the party, and she stayed at his house," the source added. Further fueling the cheating rumors is the fact that Paltrow allegedly admitted to being estranged from her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, at the time. "Gwyneth has confided to friends that she and Chris are taking a break," another source said. "Jeff is crazy about her."
Paltrow's rep denied that she cheated on Martin with Soffer, insisting that the two are friends, but new details about the Vanity Fair story suggest the actress has had multiple affairs throughout the years. In fact, just last month, (perhaps anticipating the bombshell exposé) Paltrow insinuated that cheating was acceptable.
"I would like to think that I would be forgiving and/or forgiven [for cheating], but I can't give an honest answer as I haven't really experienced that," Paltrow said. Yet, despite her denial, Paltrow has been accused of cheating on multiple partners in addition to her rocker husband. In fact, a new source has said the exposé will be heavily focused on Paltrow's rumored infidelity.
"Accusations of infidelity have dogged her for years," a source said. "When her engagement to Brad Pitt ended in 1997, rumors surfaced that she'd cheating on him with her Sliding Doors co-star John Hannah." Brad Pitt wasn't the only Hollywood hunk the Oscar-winning actress cheated on. "And a reported fling with her A Perfect Murder costar Viggo Mortensen allegedly derailed her relationship with Ben Affleck," the insider claimed. In addition, Star magazine claimed that Paltrow had an affair with a "prominent literary figure, but quashed the story after receiving a threatening legal letter from the attorney."
After details about the VF takedown have been leaked, Paltrow fled L.A. for London, but her attempts at derailing the story have not fared well. After the New York Times revealed that Paltrow had sent emails ordering her industry friends not to speak to the magazine, Editor-in-Chief Graydon Carter responded with swift retaliation.
"We started a story on her. We have a very good writer, and it'll run," Carter said. "She sort of forced my hand."
