Typically, the “secrets” shared on Whisper — an app that allows uses to share their thoughts anonymously — are from whiny, overly emotional teens confused by the cruel game that is love. However, the app just posted a bombshell: That Gwyneth Paltrow is cheating on her husband Chris Martin with Kevin Yorn, a lawyer.
The note is especially interesting because Graydon Carter, editor of Vanity Fair, recently released a long-winded explanation of why Vanity Fair didn’t follow through with a big Paltrow story that had the actress upset. If you recall, Paltrow didn’t want the piece published, but no one knew exactly why. Carter, in his note, explained that there wasn’t much to the story so he decided to stall (read: Paltrow’s pressure on the magazine worked).
Neetzan Zimmerman, the editor-in-chief of Whisper (we suppose an editor is needed when you’re dealing with millions of tweens) claimed that the app’s Paltrow secret is exactly what kept Vanity Fair from publishing its piece on the actress. Not only that, but the secret was vetted.
