Gwyneth Paltrow's company Goop is being sued by a man who says her famous vagina candle exploded and could have caused serious damage, or worse, even killed him.
A man named Colby Watson filed a class-action lawsuit against the actress's lifestyle brand, claiming he bought her "This Smells Like My Vagina" candle and it blew up on first light.
According to the documents obtained by Radar, the Texas resident claimed he bought one of the $75 candles that Paltrow hawked on her Goop site in January.
He purchased the item for the sole purpose of using it as a "personal home decoration" but instead, he claims it ruined his bedside table and could have caused a massive fire.
Watson alleges he lit it "the way in which a reasonable customer would expect to utilize a candle" for the first time in February.
He alleges the candle was only lit for "an estimated three hours or less" before it engulfed in "high flames."
He also claims the Goop vagina candle exploded and the room filled with smoke.
Watson was very specific on where he placed the candle and pointed out that non of the surrounding features could have contributed to the blow-up.
According to the documents, he alleges he put the vagina candle on his bedroom nightstand.
Watson claims nothing was touching the candle and there was no windows open so a draft isn't possible.
He also claims the explosion left the candle destroyed, leaving the jar charred from the fire.
Watson alleges his nightstand was also ruined and now is marked with a black ring.
The photo of the alleged candle after the reported explosion is gnarly.
According to the documents, Watson admits Goop includes a "limited warning" for the candle, cautioning buyers not burn it more than 2 hours at a time.
He says the warning doesn't do the job, calling the vagina candle "inherently dangerous."
Watson is suing Gwyneth Paltrow's company for breach of warranty and products liability.
He's also seeking damages of more than $5 million for himself and on behalf of other potential candle victims.
Gwyneth made headlines when she released her shocking candles in 2019, hawking the risqué label of "This Smells Like My Vagina."
They immediately sold out and the hype never died.
Goop gave Radar an exclusive statement, making it clear they stand by their brand and suggesting Watson's lawsuit is just a money grab.
"We’re confident this claim is frivolous and an attempt to secure an outsized payout from a press-heavy product. We stand behind the brands we carry and the safety of the products we sell. Here, Heretic—the brand that supplies the candle— has substantiated the product’s performance and safety through industry standard testing," a spokesperson for Goop said.
