Derek is making headlines for a deeply strange reason.

Speaking of Derek's many famous friends, plenty of people learned who he was for the first time following speculation that he may have done something deeply unfortunate while sleeping at Gwyneth Paltrow's house.

It all started with a blind item in the British publication Popbitch: "The story goes that a recent houseguest of Gwynnie’s catastrophically s--t themselves in bed while staying there, then fled back to the city before they had to face the music.”

The publication then offered an elaboration that no one really wanted: “Gwynnie’s guest won’t be the only s--tter in the Hamptons this year. Ozempic-induced diarrhea is becoming a very hot topic of conversation between hosts there — because so many of their guests are using it. So expect laundrettes to be fully booked from July 4th.”

From there, The Daily Mail reported that the person in question was in fact Derek, and also reported that Ozempic was not to blame.

“It’s shocking how many people know this story and how he has managed to keep it out of The Post,” an inside source told the publication. “Probably via his best friend [socialite Dasha Zhukova] — whose mom just married Rupert Murdoch."

This does not seem like the kind of celebrity story where we'll ever get firm confirmation, but it may take some time before Derek's reputation recovers, if it ever does. He was once known for his sense of style and his ability to foster great relationships with those in power. Now, his reputation is shaded in a way that may make things more difficult for him moving forward.
