Apparently there are some recordings made during a meeting where this former A+ list mostly movie actress is openly discussing how much the company can charge people for the products she sells which are essentially worthless.
Gwyneth Paltrow Is Being Called an ‘Extortionist’ for Charging $5,700 for Her Goop Summit
Followers of Goop understand they’re not receiving the thriftiest wellness guidance out there — but the company’s UK wellness summit may have taken things too far. Attendees are criticizing Gwyneth Paltrow for Goop’s $5,700 health summit price and overall offerings. Customers are enraged by the overpriced merchandise and lackluster involvement of Goop founder, Paltrow. However, the actor’s representatives are insisting that the summit was well-received and that concern over pricing is misplaced.
Hosted over the weekend in London, the Goop summit left many attendees feeling unsatisfied, disheartened and frankly, ripped off. Speaking to Page Six, one attendee had this to say: “Gwyneth acts like she’s a health goddess, but actually she’s a pretentious, greedy extortionist. She had a ton of security […] She was unapproachable. She did the minimum — a few fireside chats with Twiggy and Penelope Cruz, then she put on her Birkenstocks and snuck out.”
The weekend was billed as a health summit and featured various talks from Paltrow herself, as well as a workout with her trainer Tracy Anderson and access to an on-site Goop store. Included in the $5,700 fee to attend was a two-night stay in special Goop suites at the Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel — at the rate of $1,300 a night. Guests later discovered that rates for other Kimpton hotel rooms that weekend were as low as $250 per night.
It’s unclear what exactly guests hoped would be included for such a high sticker price — but clearly, whatever Paltrow offered did not meet their expectations. Most attendees had held the highest possible opinion of Paltrow prior to this summit — and suffered a devastating letdown. “I was a huge fan of Gwyneth,” the summit attendee tells Page Six. “Now I feel like I have lost my faith in God.”
A Goop representative denied claims that attendees were unsatisfied, saying that “the overwhelming response to our London Summit was incredibly positive.” The rep further claims that the actual value of two nights in such a hotel suite was worth $1,600 and that all guests took home a gift bag worth an additional $3,000. “We have not received negative feedback,” the rep tells Page Six. “[It] was more along the lines of, ‘Thanks for an amazing weekend!’” – Source
