After a slew of rumors erupted claiming that Chris Martin and Alexa Chung were an item, the friendly pair have denied anything romantic is going on between them.
Martin and Chung were spotted having a drink together at the Elsa bar last week, and the internet started buzzing with a possible new-couple alert. But, a rep for the rocker has put the speculation to rest by confirming that “they are not dating,” E! News reported.
The pair apparently looked very close and cozy on their “non-date,” Heat magazine claimed. A source for the publication said they arrived at the popular hangout around 9:15 p.m. and “were tucked away in a dark corner of the back room of the bar.”
The insider added that Martin and Chung appeared as if they really knew one another and happily chatted like they were on a date. The pair even asked the eyewitness to “watch their bags when they went out for a cigarette. It definitely looked like a date to me.”
Martin and Chung have apparently been friends for a year and met for the first time at the Glastonbury music festival. They like to occasionally hang out and talk, but there is no romantic connection between the two. At least for now.
As is now widely known, these rumors come on the heels of Martin’s infamous “conscious uncoupling” from wife Gwyneth Paltrow after 10 years of marriage. The famous duo said separating was the best thing for them right now, although they have lately been seen out on dinner dates together smiling and happy.
