Are Giada De Laurentiis and John Mayer having an affair? If you are to believe reports from Star Magazine, then yes, Giada De Laurentiis and John Mayer are dating.
Giada sets the record straight, however, saying there’s no truth to the John Mayer rumor.
John Mayer has notably hooked up with the likes of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston (and maybe Taylor Swift?), but reports that Mayer and Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis are having an affair doesn’t quite add up.
Giada De Laurentiis is married to Anthropologie fashion designer Todd Thompson and they have a 2-year-old daughter. Giada and Todd have been married seven years.
That doesn’t mean that married people don’t cheat on their spouses, but Star magazine reports the two were spotted together at New York’s the Boom Boom Room last month, with an eyewitness saying, “John had one hand on the small of her back. They looked like two people who were going to go home together.”
Another source said they were seen checking into the Hotel Gansevoort.
Giada De Laurentiis denied the clain, telling Star: “I’ve met him and he’s a great guy, but I just like his music. That’s all.”
UPDATE: Giada De Laurentiis’ reps issued a statement that said the Star report relied on “disgraceful lies.” You can read the full statement here, which sums up: “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 Starmagazine’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.”
