The web is whirling today with rumors that the pint sized Food Network star is having an affair with rocker John Mayer.
So, is it true?
If you believe the rarely accurate Star Magazine, then yes, Giada De Laurentiis and John Mayer are dating.
This might not be the kind of PR the chef wants, however.
Why? Giada is MARRIED to Anthropologie fashion designer Todd Thompson!! The couple have a 2-year-old daughter together and have been married seven years.
It’s not really a surprise that John Mayer would go after a married a woman. He’s pretty much dated his way through every single Hollywood starlet, so maybe he’s just running out of options.
Apparently Star magazine reported that the two were spotted together at the Boom Boom Room (how apropos, right?) in NYC last month. Another “source” said the celebs were seen checking into the Hotel Gansevoort in the trendy Meatpacking district. Again, appropriate, no?
Obviously, Giada De Laurentiis denied the claim, telling Star: “I’ve met him and he’s a great guy, but I just like his music. That’s all.”
But her reps just came out and laced into the gossip rag for badmouthing Giada.
To be clear, they are not friends and cannot even go so far as to call John Mayer an acquaintance. There is not a sliver of truth to Star magazine’s story. It is unfortunate Star would publish these malicious untruths without reporting the fact that Giada was with her husband Todd that weekend in New York, along with their family and friends. Giada De Laurentiis and her family deserve an apology and we demand an immediate retraction.
