Gwyneth Paltrow ruined Brad Falchuk’s marriage, his wife ‘fell off the radar’

As I previewed yesterday, Star Magazine’s cover story this week deals with Gwyneth Paltrow’s alleged (or not so much) homewrecking of a married man. The rumors about Gwyneth and Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk have been swirling for months now, if not the better part of a year. For the most part, it was just whispers – something about Gwyneth meeting a married man, carrying on a low-key, very undercover affair. Something about his wife finding out and filing for divorce. I said yesterday that I’m willing to buy the affair and I’m even willing to buy the idea that Gwyneth is still using Falchuk to get her rocks off, but I just don’t think this is her proper jump-off. Who knows though? Star makes a convincing argument. Some highlights from the cover story:

Soon after Gwyneth’s first appearance on Glee in 2010, rumors began to spread that she and Brad’s relationship had moved beyond friendship to something a little too close for comfort, especially where their respective spouses were concerned.

Eyewitnesses spotted Gwyneth and Brad at Utah resort Amangiri over the July 25 weekend. According to one eyewitness, the pair appeared to have fallen under Amangiri’s relaxing spell during their stay. “I saw Gwyneth and Brad one afternoon sitting in the dining room. She had her hair down and wasn’t wearing any makeup. They were chatting and smiling and looked totally at ease.”

Another eyewitness also caught a glimpse of the duo sunbathing by their private pool – “they were lying next to each other and Gwyneth was topless.”

Just days after the romantic getaway, Gwyneth was in East Hampton with Chris Martin. A source says: “Chris is going to be hurt, I’m sure, when he hears about Gwyneth and Brad hooking up in Utah. Just like Brad’s wife, Chris had to deal with the whispers through the years but I doubt he had any clue that anything could going on now. They’ve been trying hard to get along since their split, but this could destroy any goodwill Chris and Gwyneth had developed.”

Star also notes that Brad’s wife Suzanne Bukinik has “fallen off the radar” (which seems creepy, but hopefully not so much because they aren’t rolling with Xenu). Suzanne is apparently an executive producer with ‘According to Jim’. Star also says any mention of Suzanne has been wiped off of Brad’s Wiki page – which is true, look for yourself. They have two kids together – a boy, Brody, and a girl, Isabella. Oh, and this is the best part: Star got their hands on Suzanne’s divorce filing and she listed the date of separation as “to be determined.” They were married 10 years… if it’s ten years exactly or more, then all sorts of communal property laws apply in California. Pre-nups can be voided and lucrative divorce settlements can be negotiated. You know what I smell? A payoff. Hush money for not calling out Gwyneth in the press.

    I’m speechless. My breath is taken away. Oh my !!
    This reminds me of something from high school, except the people are married to other people and have children.

    • Izzy says:

      Not really, though. In high school there aren’t usually young children watching other people help destroy their parents’ marriage and wreck the family that made those kids feel secure. This kind of thing goes way beyond high school, and is just inexcusable, particularly when kids are involved.

      • reba says:

        Exactly, that’s what I meant, they are acting like teenagers but they are supposed to be married grown-ups with children to care for.

    • Eve says:

      Gwyneth reminds me of one of those girls/women that seem to have men chase after them but you don’t know why because they are not that pretty or special to look at, yet they always get a lot of attention from the opposite sex.

      • Kimberly says:

        I agree with you…..and yeah I’m also confused as to why she gets so much attention from the opposite sex.

        She isn’t pretty and she’s annoying…….so it leaves me with the conclusion that she must be good in bed or something? Or is the fact that she’s a celeb, that draws some people in and probably keeps them around to tolerate her?

        Men can be famewhores to anyway…..I dunno. I’m confused LOL.

  2. BlueJay says:

    Well at least I liked this better then poor Gwenyth. Makes for a better story. Finally a story with the poor man instead of the poor woman. Only Gwen could pull this off! Got to love her.

  3. Abbott says:

    I love that even with Miranda Kerr kinda fanning the flames of the Battle of Elvin Soft Slap, her swaggy cheating is still relegated to the top box.

  4. Sumodo1 says:

    Goop has had Daddy Issues forever and this guy is in T V like Bruce Paltrow was. This is her jump off. Yeah.

    • Addie says:

      +1 – I think this is it. If you read his bio he is actually really talented and likely has made lots of money. His look reminds me of the alternate lifestyle/intellectual/ mountain climber type I see a lot of where I am from.

  5. Hello Catty says:

    Eh. Was she worth it, Brad?

  6. Kiddo says:

    Um…Rich guy can’t find a sweater in his size? Is that Gwyneth’s? I guess he subscribes to the Kim Kardashian sausage-look, or he thinks he looks like the Hulk in it; can someone explain this to me, please? lol

  7. Pandy says:

    I feel sorry for his wife. Imagine being cheated on over Gwyneth Paltrow? Shudder.

  8. Mia4S says:

    Called out as a common hussy and mistress?! How gauche GOOP!

  9. Jess says:

    How does she pull so many men!?! She’s so obnoxious !

  10. Jem says:

    OK, so she fooled around with some TV guy and now both marriages are busted. But did she really pay off the guy’s wife, not to expose her cheating ways? WHY? First of all, we found out anyway, didn’t we? Yes, we did. Secondly, this is showbiz so DUH everybody is screwing everybody else; and 3rd, Goopy isn’t popular or powerful enough for this to hurt her anyway. In her own mind, I could kind of see her thinking, “Oh my GOD this will RUIN me!” But in reality? Nah. Nobody cares about her enough to give a sh*t either way. Fool around; don’t fool around… It won’t affect her box office appeal. She fell off that pedestal years ago, if in fact she was ever really on it.

    And btw, her lover is a thousand times better looking than her husband. Just sayin’, Goopy you traded up as far as I’m concerned.

    • redtop says:

      I don’t know. Think of all the drama of the LeAnn, Brandi Eddie saga (I know, shoot me now for voluntarily bringing them up). Still, it gets a whole lot messier in the press if the wife starts talking. We may know about it, but we are collectively shrugging. Tunes change when dirty details direct from the wife start leaking.

      • HappyMom says:

        The drama there is because they keep fighting in the press. They also have nothing else going on-so it’s just a way to get attention. Hollywood marriages and relationships have broken up because of infidelity since it began-people’s careers aren’t ruined over it. The only one that comes to mind is poor Ingrid Bergman who got called out by the Catholic church in the early 50s over her affair with Roberto Rossellini.

      • Kori says:

        @HappyMom And Eddie Fisher after the Debbie Reynolds/Eddie Fisher/Elizabeth Taylor mess. Liz and Debbie went on to become bigger stars than ever but Eddie never regained his popularity. And then lost his wife to Richard Burton to boot!

  11. Jaded says:

    So would Goop classify this as a conscious philandering? Conscious sport-f*ck? Just wondering how she can describe an adulterous affair that broke up a marriage in weasel words.

  12. lucy2 says:

    All of this open relationship, cheating, separation stuff makes me think back to that obnoxious garden party video she had going around for a while there, and all the stuff about food and cooking that she tried to make about her family. She tried so hard to put up a perfect, traditional family image, and wow, was it a sham.

  13. Bubulle says:

    I care more about the 95 $ in coupons than Goop.

    • Abbicci says:

      I thought the same thing. I don’t buy Star but I think I’ll flip through to check out the coupons. The peasants need to save some cash!

  14. Guest says:

    She’ll end up with a Salma-Hayek’s husband-type. This guy is just a temporary jump-off. An affair with a married man? So peasant-y and non-1%-ty of Goop.

  15. Ag says:

    well, he’s the one who busted up his own marriage, but she is an a-hole for taking up with a married dude.

  16. LizLemonGotMarried says:

    Did they really say “…she and Brad’s relationship…?” The pain.

    • sonalaceae (Nighty) says:

      Apparently… What magazine is it? Oh, Star… Well, maybe they didn’t “star” in the English Classes at school?


  17. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    This guys looks scream douchebag to me.

  18. Miss M says:

    I always thought she was a harmless air-headed elitist. These days she is coming across as someone with A LOT of issues. When I was younger, I had some high school Acquaintances that they need to get the guy that any of the other girls were interested just to feel desired, etc. So sad…

    • LizLemonGotMarried says:

      You know, though, girls in high school can grow up and not be assholes. if you’re still doing this at 40+, it may be time to reevaluate.

      • Miss M says:

        I gave an example as high school. But also saw people in college being this way… Which means it is something about their personalities not age related. That’s why I said she has issues…

    • jenny12 says:

      Yes, I agree. I just thought she liked to spout off nonsense about her diet and how her kids speak 5 languages and how Chris loves her cheeseless, wheatless pizza made in their own pizza oven. But she seems to be someone who can’t be faithful or put her family first, nor care how she hurts others. She seems to crave excitement and drama. Being this way at 42 is not a good sign.

  19. Ciria says:

    So Chris was cheating with the Alexa Chung and Gwenyth was cheating with Brad.

    Now it all makes sense.

  20. eliza says:

    Falchuck looks like a less unattractive Jonathan Cheeban.

    Gwennie’s taste in me does not improve with age.

    • KA says:

      Yes, I thought the same thing. He looks like that dude that hangs with Kim Kardashian. I hope the wife gets half and still spill the tea.

  21. MSat says:

    He certainly looks like her “type:” pretentious, hipster pretty-boy.

    • Santolina says:

      The operative word is “boy.” Ugh. She really is still in high school. It’s hard to imagine her with a mature, self-assured man.

  22. krastins says:

    I think it’s absolutely hilarious that she is on the cover under a HUGE banner reading “COUPONS!!”
    so gauche, so peasant. xD

  23. Missy says:

    Can’t she keep it in her pants until her divorce is finalized? She wants a blissed out divorce and probably sold her soul to have that Vanity Fair story killed, only to have this Falchuk affair reported anyway. She goes through too much trouble only to fail like Wiley Coyote.

  24. rudy says:

    There is a hysterical blind gossip post somewhere about two celebrity wives and their celebrity husbands.

    Gywnnies affair is half the blind and now a solved blind. It is pretty funny. Except for the wife. Or ex-wife. Hard not to feel bad for her. Her marriage was Goopified. Ugh.

  25. Angie says:

    All I have to add is I LOVE the picture that Star used of Gwyneth. ROTFL She looks so smugly satisfied in her homewrecking ways lol

  26. H2O says:

    Then again, it is Star Magazine.
