De Laurentiis clarified rumors that have appeared in Star magazine which say that she was cheating on her husband with co-workers Bobby Flay, John Mayer and Matt Lauer.
However, the celeb chef gave a statement to Gossip Cop saying: “I have never ever been romantically involved with John Mayer. I met him twice at least 5 or 6 years ago at public events along with hundreds of other people.”
“The small amount of face time with John was in rooms filled with other attendees at these events. I have not seen or even heard from him since. The allegation of an affair was a fabrication back in 2010 and remains so today.”
Giada De Laurentiis announced her separation from her husband in late December through a statement on her Facebook account.
“After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage. Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family’s happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths. Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything. We are so thankful for our friends and family, and really appreciate the support in this time of change.”
After the breakup announcement, her husband filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Giada De Laurentiis and Todd Thompson were married in May, 2003. They have a daughter together, Jade Marie De Laurentiis Thompson, 6.
