Gwyneth Paltrow Accused of “Extortion” Over Pricey Goop Wellness Summit

July 3, 2019

Attendees of Gwyneth Paltrow’s recent wellness summit in London are reportedly angry after they were charged $5,700 to attend--then subjected to a weekend-long Goop sales pitch. One attendee tells Page Six that a prominent British guest was so appalled by the aggressive Goop hype that she told other attendees, “GP is a f**king extortionist." Another added that “Gwyneth acts like she’s a health goddess, but actually she’s a pretentious, greedy extortionist," and "was unapproachable. She did the minimum." Other attendees accused Goop of gouging them on hotel rates, and subjecting them to a steady barrage of overpriced items for sale. Even the brief interactions with Paltrow were criticized, with her “hydrate mindfully” seminar raising more than a few eyebrows. A Goop rep said the true value of the weekend was over $8,000 because of free extras including golden facials and “far-infrared gemstone therapy," while Paltrow said that she has not received any negative feedback.
