Celebrity Chef Giada De Laurentiis Denies Saucy Rumors

Rumors are cooking about one celebrity chef and her spicy involvement with another.

Just days after Giada De Laurentiis announced the split from her husband of more than eleven years, rumors began circulating that the 44-year-old is dating fellow celebrity chef Bobby Flay. According to Star Magazine, Flay and De Laurentiis were spotted dining together a few days before she announced her split from fashion designer husband, Todd Thompson. The magazine also accused her of having a relationship with TODAY show host Matt Lauer.

Now the celebrity chef is speaking out against those rumors.

"My long-time friendships with my co-workers Matt Lauer and Bobby Flay are exactly that - long-time friendship," she told Gossip Cop. "There has never been a romantic relationship with these two men."

Lauer and Flay are also married.

De Laurentiis first announced her split last week on Facebook, thanking her fans for her support. Thompson and De Laurentiis married in 2003 and have a daughter together.
