Gwyneth Paltrow's Vespa School Rides Nixed

Paltrow took daughter Apple for a ride on her Vespa in August.

The actress had become notorious for driving her children to and from their L.A. private school on a Vespa, but the school has nixed the practice over safety concerns.

This story first appeared in the Nov. 22 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Gwyneth Paltrow had become known among fellow parents for chicly whisking her kids to and from their tony L.A. private prep on the back of her Vespa. (Husband Chris Martin would do the same when it was his turn.)
