There’s no love lost be­tween the con­trol­ling ac­tress and hus­band Brad Falchuk’s teenagers, Brody and Is­abella.

WHEN Gwyneth Pal­trow ad­mit­ted re­cently that she and hus­band Brad Falchuk didn’t live to­gether for their first year of mar­riage, many fans and even friends thought it sounded a lit­tle strange. But she in­sisted they kept sep­a­rate homes to give their chil­dren “a lit­tle space and not move too quickly.” How­ever, it seems that Brad’s teenage kids, Brody and Is­abella, want even more space away from their step­mom, a fam­ily in­sider re­veals, adding that ever since the TV writer/pro­ducer and his brood moved in with Gwyneth and her kids, Ap­ple and Moses, in Septem­ber, things have gone down­hill quickly. “Is­abella and Brody have begged their dad not to make them stay there,” says the in­sider. “They only spend a few nights a week at her house, but they want it to be less. They dread go­ing over there.”

OUT OF BOUNDS

Part of the rea­son for their aver­sion is Gwyneth’s lack of bound­aries, ac­cord­ing o the source. “One of her rules is, she alks to Brad’s kids like they’re adults, not teenagers — it’s how she’s rais­ing her own chil­dren,” the source says. “She talks about things like sex and re­la­tion­ships, hop­ing to keep the com­mu­ni­ca­tion lines open and hon­est, but it’s su­per awk­ward for them. They’d rather not hear it.” To make mat­ters worse for Is­abella and Brody, the Goop founder, 47, is fa­mously metic­u­lous about her liv­ing space, an in­sider says. She even goes so far as to or­ga­nize ev­ery ob­ject in her pantry and play­room ac­cord­ing to “color, size and pur­pose,” and to hire a “book cu­ra­tor” to beau­tify her home li­brary. That ex­haus­tive level of neat-freak­ery has the teens feel­ing un­com­fort­able in their dad’s new home, the source re­veals.

FOOD FIGHT

“Gwyneth can’t han­dle any sin­gle thing be­ing out of place; she doesn’t even like it if there’s a crumb on the kitchen counter,” the in­sider says. “But Brody and Is­abella weren’t brought up like that at all. No one’s blam­ing her for want­ing a clean house, but Brad’s kids think it’s ex­treme.”

She’s also con­trol­ling about what kinds of food the teens can eat in the house, the source spills. “Gwyneth is ve­gan and has asked them not to bring meat into her kitchen. If she even smells chicken, she says she feels sick. She doesn’t al­low fast food ei­ther. Gwyn’s own kids are used to it — she put them on a mac­ro­bi­otic diet when they were lit­tle — but Brody and Is­abella find it ag­o­niz­ing.”

Brad, 48, hasn’t yet told Gwyneth how hard liv­ing in her house has been for his kids, shares the source. “She’d be hurt if she knew. She has the best in­ten­tions when it comes to them, but she does tend to mi­cro­man­age, and it’s a lot to han­dle.”★
