Jeff Soffer-Gwyneth Paltrow Affair Denied By Actress' Rep

by at .  Updated at . Comments

When Gwyneth Paltrow found out that Vanity Fair was planning to run a feature on her, she tried to put the kibosh on it fast. The question is why.

“If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline,” she asked friends regarding Vanity Fair, encouraging them never to deal with the publication.

The Vanity Fair piece will run, however, and the latest rumor regarding why the actress is so upset is her friendship with Florida billionaire Jeff Soffer.

Paltrow, 41, who has two children with her husband, the Coldplay singer Chris Martin, is said to have been close to Soffer, 43, in 2008, in Miami.

Soffer married Elle Macpherson, 49, the supermodel, earlier this year.

Her spokesman has denied the report, however, saying any suggestion of an affair is “one big lie” and that Soffer is nothing more than a long-term friend.

A source for the New York Post says VF has been asking “Miami society sources” about Paltrow’s trip to Soffer’s Fontainebleau Hotel back in 2008:

Vanity Fair is asking if Gwyneth had an affair in 2008 when he reopened the Fontainebleau ... he flew her in for the party, and she stayed at his house.”

“Soffer reportedly gave Paltrow a private tour of the hotel, whisking her away in his Bentley, and the following day, she joined him on his yacht with Kate Hudson."

Her rep is on record denying it, and it's unclear if it will even be a factor in the article when it's released. But it still could be why she fears the story.
