Gwyneth Paltrow has denied that a ghost-writer penned her best-selling cookbook.

The controversy erupted following The New York Times' publishing of an article where Julia Turshen was credited as "ghostwriter" of Paltrow's 2011 book My Father's Daughter.

It goes on to suggest that the writer is now collaborating with the Oscar winning actress for a second cookbook.

Paltrow took to Twitter to air her feelings on the article: "Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself. [sic]"

Paltrow released the book last April and said at the time that writing the cookbook helped her feel closer to her late father Bruce Paltrow.

On the dedication page of the book, Paltrow pays tribute to Turshen, writing that she could: "not have written this book without the tireless, artful assistance of Julia Turshen, who stood over my shoulder at the stove and chopping block for the better part of a year, bringing a method to my freestyling madness."
