Gwyneth Paltrow was NOT “dumped on her birthday,” despite a false report about the actress and Brad Falchuk. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story.

On the new cover of Star, a small headline announces, “Unhappy 44th! Gwyneth Dumped On Her Birthday.” Inside the magazine, the article is titled, “Gwyneth & Brad’s Mexican Standoff.” It’s said, “It’s Gwyneth Paltrow’s party and she’ll cry if she wants to!”

“The Goop guru, who celebrated her 44th birthday in Mexico, was a mess after boyfriend Brad Falchuk backed out at the last minute,” claims the outlet. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Brad made up some BS excuse about work, so Gwyneth ended up bringing a bunch of her girlfriends instead. She tried to put on a happy face, but when Brad texted her happy birthday, we were all shocked.”

It’s then said that “the trouble began in August when Gwyneth and Brad attended Cameron Diaz’s birthday party. “Cameron and Benji [Madden] have been trying for a baby, and it got Gwyneth thinking,” the supposed “pal” alleges. “But when she brought it up to Brad, he freaked out. Gwyneth isn’t sure where they go from here.”

Gossip Cop can’t imagine any of Paltrow’s “girlfriends” or “pals” talking to a tabloid like Star. The publication has run a series of mean-spirited stories about the actress lately, all designed to paint her in a negative light. It seems the magazine just likes being cruel… and inaccurate.

“This is just another one of those completely fabricated stories,” a rep for Paltrow exclusively tells Gossip Cop. “They don’t have any [accurate] reporting.” Can’t say we’re surprised.
