Business Insider - over 3 years
The New York Post reported last week that Gwyneth Paltrow was so against an upcoming, unauthorized Vanity Fair profile about her because it alleges the married actress had a 2008 affair with billionaire real estate mogul, Jeffrey Soffer. Paltrow's rep fervently denies the claims, while Soffer has clearly moved on — as he married model Elle Macpherson earlier this year. But this isn't the first time a billionaire has been at the center of a celebrity love triangle or media storm.

Alec Baldwin Blasts Arpad Busson As 'Pockmarked Toady'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Alec Baldwin has some choice words for Arpad Busson, the billionaire French financier and fledgling film producer who has a child with Uma Thurman. In a new interview with TV Guide, Baldwin blasted Busson as a "pockmarked toady" and "bloated little toad." The issue stems from the fact that Busson said Baldwin was nothing more than a television star, a byproduct of Baldwin's stint on the long-running NBC series "30 Rock." Busson -- who was listed as an executive producer for "On The Road," but has few other relevant film credits -- came into Baldwin's atmosphere because he was approached by the actor and director James Toback to provide financing for a romance movie set in Iraq, in which Baldwin would star. (Baldwin and Toback took the project around the Cannes Film Festival in 2012, where they met with Busson among many others, while filming the exploits for a new documentary called "Seduced and Abandoned"; that film will air on HBO on Oct. 28.) "If movie stardom meant being trapped ...
