The news surrounding Gwyneth Paltrow stepping outside of her marriage to Chris Martin won't die. The story originally surfaced back in October when Vanity Fair was doing a scathing cover story on the actress. After the feud with the magazine was settled, a new rumor surfaced.

This time the gossip comes from an unusual source: Whisper, a secret-sharing app available on smartphones. The juicy secret with a photo of the Iron Man star read, "Gwyneth Paltrow is cheating on Chris Martin with entertainment lawyer Kevin Yorn. [You heard it here first]."

That post sent many users into a frenzy and required Whisper's editor-in-chief Neetzan Zimmerman to make a statement to Defamer.

He said, "I can't reveal their identity for obvious reasons, but it's a person with extremely close ties to Gwyneth who came to us directly after Graydon Carter wrote that missive about why [Vanity Fair] walked away from the Paltrow profile last year. I have no reason to suspect they're lying about this, and if anyone would know the truth, this person would."

It also didn't help that Zimmerman tweeted that particular post out on his own Twitter account. He knew he had a hot story.

With the news circulating throughout Hollywood rapidly, Paltrow's publicist, Stephen Huvane, went on the defensive. He gave a rather lengthy explanation about their relationship.

Huvane stated to Defamer, "This is clearly a fabricated story with no credibility at all. The only time Gwyneth has even recently seen Kevin Yorn (who she knows only casually through business contacts) was on a flight from NY-LA. Gwyneth was flying with her assistant and the CEO of Goop, and Kevin coincidentally was also in the first class section. I cannot be more clear with you when I say she is NOT having an affair with Kevin Yorn, and I will be notifying her attorneys as well."

There's been no word from Yorn at this point, but is this a case of where there is smoke, there is fire? This isn't the first time she's been accused of cheating. The Vanity Fair fracas was surrounding an alleged affair with billionaire Jeff Soffer.

We wonder what Chris Martin thinks about all of the allegations?
