Is Beyonce miffed at Gwyneth Paltrow? It seems like she is--at least a bit. She doesn't like word of her charity efforts flaunted in the media--or so she says. Maybe she's upset with Gwyneth because she's taking sides with pal Chris Martin since his split with the actress instead.
Here's how the scene reportedly played out. Beyonce donated a pair of custom Stuart Weitzman stiletto boots to an online charity auction Gwyneth Paltrow was having on her website Goop. She sent out a mass email to prospective buyers using Beyonce's name as one of the donors.
"After the split, she thought it best that her name wasn't attached to the event," a source suggested.
"She would have been fine if they had just sold her stuff anonymously. She doesn't feel the need to parade all her charity work for people to see, so she was annoyed when the email went out," the source said.
Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z were known to be close friends with both Gwyneth and Chris, so it may very well be that they don't want to take sides between the actress and the Coldplay frontman. Beyonce is thought to still be in touch with the actress, but for some reason is keeping things low-key.
"Gwyn and Beyoncé haven't spoken much since Gwyn's split with Chris, although Bey has checked in on how she and the kids are doing," the source shared.
This report is exactly the opposite of what Gwyneth Paltrow said last week in which she suggested she and Beyonce would soon be engaging in a girlfriend's getaway.
"Gwyneth reckons this is just what her friend needs to get her energy back," a source told British newspaper The Sun of the supposedly planned vacation.
Some people have even hinted that Gwyneth Paltrow is coaching Beyonce on divorce tips since a rumor about she and Jay Z divorcing has circulated recently.
So what do you suppose the real issue is between Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow? Has Bey hopped on the 'everyone hates Gwyneth' bandwagon like many people did after recent articles on her parenting style hit the press? Or is this all simply a case of miscommunication? It would certainly seem that Beyonce has way more to do with her time than to fret over a pair of donated boots that sold with her name attached.
