Gwyneth Paltrow has refuted the reports that surfaced that she carried on an affair with billionaire Jeff Soffer, as Vanity Fair continues to investigate for their article on her.

Vanity Fair, after getting rebuffed by Paltrow for cooperation on an upcoming piece on her, has decided to dig into the actress' past to put together something that’s bound to be less than flattering. One such less flattering lead that they're following is speculation that the actress may have had an affair with Soffer, a billionaire friend of hers who happens to be married to model Elle Macpherson.

Back in 2008, Paltrow attended a party that Soffer threw in Miami for the reopening of the Fontainbleu hotel. Throughout the party, Paltrow was often seen at Soffer’s side and later allegedly went to his house to spend the night. Vanity Fair is using that story as a springboard for their investigation into an alleged affair, according to Page Six.

Before Vanity Fair’s Paltrow story hits newsstands, the actress' rep has already publicly commented on the affair allegations. “It’s completely false,” the spokesperson told the Daily Mail. “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 rep added.

Vanity Fair’s article on Paltrow appears to have taken the form of a “take-down” piece after the 41-year-old Iron Man star asked her friends and acquaintances to not cooperate with the magazine should they be asked about her. “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline,” her mass email reportedly read.

Paltrow has been married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin since 2003. The longtime couple has two children together – Apple Martin, 9, and Moses Martin, 7.
