Even though Chris Martin is busy consciously uncoupling from his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, the Coldplay singer has tongues wagging about a possible paramour. A source told Heat magazine that Martin was spotted hanging out with Alexa Chung.
The two were seen at the New York City bar, Elsa, enjoying a drink and each other’s company.
The source said, “When I arrived, about 9:15 p.m., they were tucked away in a dark corner of the back room of the bar. Chris and Alexa seemed to know each other really well. They were both in a great mood, and even asked us to watch their bags when they went out for a cigarette. It definitely looked like a date to me.”
While it is unclear if the friends really are dating, this isn’t the first time Martin and Chung have been linked together. The TV presenter met the “Viva la Vida” singer at the Glastonbury Music Festival last year. It is rumored that sparks flew back then, even though Martin was married to Paltrow at the time.
Last year, Hollywood was gossiping that the power couple had an “open relationship,” but Paltrow’s hubby broke the rules by falling in love with the British-born Chung.
According to Star magazine, Martin was even “sneaking out at night to see [Alexa] and confide in her” while his marriage was falling apart. While no one has substantiated the rumors that the 37-year-old had an affair, it certainly raises a few eyebrows now that he’s separated from his Oscar-winner wife.
Your move, Gwyneth.
