Giada De Laurentiis fires back at rumors surrounding her split from Todd Thompson. Read on for more details.
Giada De Laurentiis has finally spoken! After announcing her amicable separation from Todd Thompson, her husband of 11 years, rumors surfaced on the Internet about De Laurentiis’ alleged affair with singer John Mayer, which caused her marriage to fall into pieces. According the a report on Star magazine, the “Food Network” chef had an affair with Mayer (whom she first met in 2007) when the chef and the singer met at The Standard Hotel in 2010.
In an interview with Gossip Cop, De Laurentiis denied any romantic ties with Mayer and that she has only met the singer five or six years ago, and those short encounters were in events filled with hundreds of people. Giada was also part of a blind item in 2009, and the same outlet named her and Mayer as the faces behind the blind item in 2010. De Laurentiis fires back at these rumors and says that the rumor “was a fabrication back in 2010 and remains so today.”
The celebrity chef was also rumored to have a romantic relationship with co-workers Matt Lauer and Bobby Flay. De Laurentiis dismisses the rumors by saying that there has been nothing more between her and Lauer or Flay than friendship.
De Laurentiis also said that Star magazine’s report about her being seen at The Standard Hotel on December 10 was all made up. The celebrity told Gossip Cop that she was not at the hotel on that day and continues that she has not stayed at that hotel for “at least the last few years.” De Laurentiis claims that on the day that she was rumored to be at The Standard Hotel, she was “on an early morning flight back to Los Angeles.”
Star magazine also reported that De Laurentiis had an alleged affair with three other men who are threatening her and asking for money for their silence. The chef slams this rumor further, saying the report was “a complete fabrication. There are no men out there making any such claims.”
Now that Giada De Laurentiis has spoken up, we can finally put this rumored affairs to rest. After all, John Mayer seems pretty happy back in Katy Perry’s arms.
