Gwyneth Paltrow is not â€śthreatenedâ€ť by Matthew McConaugheyâ€™s wife, Camila Alves, and her lifestyle site, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. A rep for the actress tells us itâ€™s simply not true.
According to RadarOnline, Paltrow is worried about having to compete with Alvesâ€™ lifestyle brand, Women of Today, which shares similarities with Goop. An alleged insider tells the blog the actress thinks Alvesâ€™ company is â€śa horrible versionâ€ť of her own and â€śsheâ€™s steaming mad over it.â€ť
McConaugheyâ€™s wife launched her site in 2016, but the supposed source says she recently gave it â€śa posh makeoverâ€ť and started going after â€śGoopâ€™s target audience and even clients.â€ť The questionable tipster further contends that Alves has flooded â€śMatthewâ€™s cash into this project,â€ť which is â€śby far the most competitiveâ€ť beauty brand Paltrow has encountered since founding Goop in 2008. â€śItâ€™s no wonder sheâ€™s threatened,â€ť adds the â€śinsider.â€ť
This article is based on claims from anonymous and untraceable â€śsources,â€ť but Paltrowâ€™s own spokesperson tells Gossip Cop on the record itâ€™s â€ścompletely false.â€ť In fact, the actress has already made it clear she doesnâ€™t consider other lifestyle websites as rivals. â€śThereâ€™s no competition,â€ť Paltrow told Time magazine when asked about celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Alba having their own brands.
Paltrow went on to say she finds it â€śslightly misogynisticâ€ť to suggest thereâ€™s friction between lifestyle sites launched by women. â€śI want to do everything I can to support their businesses,â€ť the actress said of her peers in the industry. She further noted that rumors of feuds between beauty brands emerge because people like â€śpitting women against each other, which is not founded in truth.â€ť She added, â€śNone of us think weâ€™re in each otherâ€™s space.â€ť
Itâ€™s also worth noting, RadarOnlineâ€™s premise isnâ€™t original. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the blogâ€™s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for falsely claiming Paltrow was threatened by Catherine Zeta-Jones launching a lifestyle brand. It seems the website decided to recycle the narrative and focus it on McConaugheyâ€™s wife this time around.
Not only does the blog know very little about the actressâ€™s business ventures, it doesnâ€™t have insight into her personal life either. Gossip Cop called out the site in April for wrongly reporting that Paltrow was pregnant. The only reason the website believed that to be the case is because the actress wore a baggy dress to an event. As time has shown, Paltrow isnâ€™t expecting a baby. Sheâ€™s not threatened by Alvesâ€™ lifestyle brand either.
