Gwyneth Paltrow is feuding with Vanity Fair over a plan the magazine reportedly has to run a tell-all on her relationships.
It is understood the 41-year-old actress sent friends an email begging them not to talk to the magazine.
According to the New York Post's Page Six the magazine might be digging deep into her “friendship” with Elle Macpherson’s billionaire husband Jeff Soffer.
A Miami Society source says Vanity Fair has been asking if Paltrow had an affair with Soffer in 2008. Paltrow has been married to Coldplay rocker Chris Martin since 2003 and they have two children - Aussie supermodel Macpherson and Soffer only married a few months ago.
It is rumoured that Paltrow and Soffer got together at the opening of his extravagant Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami.
Paltrow sparked speculation about her relationship with Soffer after she attended a Victoria’s Secret party there and “remained closed off in a private section with Soffer,” The New York Post reported at the time.
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.
The report also said that Martin and Paltrow’s relationship had been on the rocks for months.
A spokesman for Paltrow has denied she had a “romantic relationship” with Soffer.
“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,” the spokesman said.
