Gwyneth Paltrow is crying foul over claims made in the New York Times last week that she used a ghostwriter for her 2011 cookbook “My Father’s Daughter.”

“Love the New York Times dining section, but this week’s facts need checking,” she tweeted over the weekend. “No ghostwriter on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself.”

That NYT article used a photo of Paltrow’s cookboko and April Bloomfield’s book “A Girl and Her Pig” as the lead image. Its caption read, “Gwyneth Paltrow’s ghostwriter is Julia Turshen; April Bloomfield had J.J. Goode.” The article also claims that Turshen and Paltrow are working together on a second cookbook.

Paltrow’s publicist backed up her client’s defense, telling Entertainment Weekly, “Julia is her food assistant and is properly credited and acknowledged in the book. Gwyneth wrote every word and developed every recipe. Julia was not a ghost writer for Gwyneth.”

Do you think Gwyneth Paltrow is telling the truth or bluffing?
