This week's rumor of an Al Gore-Laurie David affair heated up like the Earth's surface after a century of fossil fuel-based emissions trapping some serious freaking greenhouse gasses - but like climate change, its validity is hotly debated.

Laurie David's camp has denied it. A source close to Al Gore has denied it.

Still, the rumor of the two environmentalists falling in love - and Gore's marriage falling apart - persists even though it was the famously unreliable Star magazine that linked the Vice President to the producer of An Inconvenient Truth.

Did the publication simply find a file photo of them together and concoct this out of thin air? Did they base it on unfounded rumors? Or is there something to it?

The latest denial comes today from ... Laurie David's contractor.

Calling the report "ludicrous" and "completely ridiculous, Bart Thorpe says "I know for a fact that Laurie hasn't seen Al Gore for at least two years - at least."

There's little evidence of a Laurie David-Al Gore tryst, but rumors persist.

The significance of Bart Thorpe's quote, given to the New York Post, is that he, of all people, supposedly had an affair with Laurie David himself, circa 2007.

Around that time, when he was doing work on her Martha's Vineyard home, she split with Larry David, Seinfeld co-creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star.

Mrs. David never emphatically denied that rumor, either.

For what it's worth, the National Enquirer says Gore's wife was suspicious of her husband and a certain cadre of ladies - but none match David's description.

Also, an unnamed insider told the tab, "there's never been proof that Al had affairs" or that infidelity contributed to his surprising split with Tipper Gore.

Basically, it looks like this rumor is just a lot of hot air (cue another bad global warming joke), but tabloids have been right about far more absurd things.

Rumors of an Al Gore-Laurie David affair surfaced yesterday, casting news light on the global warming advocate's separation from wife Tipper after 40 years.

But there is no truth to the report of the former Vice President's marriage ending thanks to a two-year affair with the ex-wife of Larry David, her agent says.

"This report is completely, patently false," says Dorian Karchmar, angrily rejecting Star magazine's shocking account of an Al Gore-Laurie David affair.

The agent added regarding the scandalous story that "I have no idea where it started from or why, but it is absolutely, positively and patently untrue."

We have some idea. Laurie David, herself a prominent environmentalist, served as a producer of Al Gore's 2006 Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth.

Here's a photo of them together ...

Are Laurie David and Al Gore having an affair?

Al announced his separation from Tipper Gore June 1, with the couple saying it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together."

Friends of the former couple, who said they were shocked, said at the time that the breakup was "not one of those [cheating] situations in any remote way."

David, who ended her marriage with Larry in 2007 amid allegations of infidelity, also told the Huffington Post personally that the story is a "total fabrication."

"I adore both Al and Tipper Gore. I look at them both as family," Laurie says.

Moreover, "I have happily been in a serious relationship since my divorce."

A rep for Al Gore declined to comment.

Have former Vice President Al Gore and Laurie David, ex-wife of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David, been having an affair for the last two years?

That's the allegation of a prominent celebrity gossip tabloid.

Al Gore split from wife Tipper after 40 years of marriage earlier this month, news that shocked to a public who largely viewed the Gore union as an ideal marriage.

There were very few details, rumored or confirmed, about the nature of the split. Until today, when Star said that Al Gore and Laurie David are sleeping together.

Al has supposedly been having an affair with Laurie, who divorced Larry David in 2007 amid reports she slept with the caretaker of their Martha's Vineyard home.

No additional information, such as whether Tipper found out about the split, or whether it's actually true, is available at this time. But an insider did tell Star:

“Al and Laurie went from friends to lovers. It couldn’t be avoided."

Really, Star insider? It was inevitable? There was no deliberation at all? Michelle McGee would agree with that take. Al's just doing what guys do, right? Yeesh.
