Entertainment: Romance Between Foodie Giada de Laurentiis and John Mayer Denied

Jennifer Aniston’s ex is currently being linked to Food Network Star and regular contributor of the ‘Today’ show 40-year-old Giada de Laurentiis. 

Granddaughter of the legendary movie producer, Dino De Laurentiis (credited for revamping the Italian film industry after World War II), Giada strove to make it on her own to get away from anything that has to do with the film industry and instead went on her own to become a chef.  Ironically, she still ended in front of the camera.

Rumors of the said affair between married Giada and John, 33, appeared in the tabloid ‘Star’ which reported that the two were cozying up to each other and appears to be going home.

Giada, through her rep, firmly denies the rumors and slammed ‘Star’ in lying just to entertain readers.  Giada’s rep says Giada and John met briefly in 2007 but hadn’t seen each other since.

John’s rep says, “The claims are absolutely ridiculous.”

Giada is married to Todd Thompson since 2003 and they have a 2-year-old daughter.
