The latest victim in a string of ‘who’s your daddy’-related humor pertaining to the contents of January Jones’s uterus is husband of supermodel Claudia Schiffer, Matthew Vaughn. E! Online broke the story, which I’ve so graciously copied and pasted here, but don’t bother trying the link – E! pulled the story off their site earlier this morning.
Acording to multiple knowledgeable X-Men sources, Vaughn and Schiffer “abruptly” left town at roughly the same time Jones made her surprise baby announcement in April, even though the couple was tentatively scheduled to stay on through May.[Additionally, Matthew was a no-show at the premiere of his own movie] in New York yesterday— but January [and] other cast members [were there].
His rep [claims] Matthew could not attend the New York screening because of a “severe” case of tonsillitis. Miraculously, though, Mr. Vaughn still seemed quite the chatty Cathy for X-Men interviews on the same day. His health seemed to be in tip-top shape. Multiple sources from the set insist Jones and Vaughn were “very close” throughout shooting.
I don’t think the story had been live on the site for fifteen minutes when Matt’s camp made a statement vehemently denying that he’d ever been involved with Jones. That statement, added as an update to the original E! story is gone now, too. Fishy.
Anyway, on to more important speculation: I don’t know what’s more surprising – the fact that this guy’s got such a crack legal team that gets shit pulled from major network websites within hours, or the fact that a guy would cheat on his wife with a chick that looks almost EXACTLY LIKE HIS WIFE, just … less talented. I mean, at least invite her to the party so that whole ‘twin’ fantasy can be recognized, you know? Jeez.
