Gwyneth Paltrow makes solo appearances, sparks new breakup rumors

The rumors that actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay front man Chris Martin, are on the rocks have been swirling around for months. The couple, parents to Apple and Moses, are notoriously fierce about guarding their privacy and go out of their way not to be photographed together. It’s hard to say which of them is driving that – I’d say it’s Gwyneth, who was a regular tabloid staple during her engagements to Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck. But everytime one of them appears publicly without the other one, a new cycle of rumors begins.

IS Gwyneth Paltrow heading down the same marital path as her pal Madonna?

Paltrow raised eyebrows last weekend when she went to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show at the reopened Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach instead of flying to see her rocker husband, Chris Martin, on tour with Coldplay.

One insider said, “Gwyneth flew down privately at the behest of [Fontainebleau Resorts owner] Jeff Soffer.” Paltrow and Soffer – a billionaire bachelor who’s regarded as Miami royalty – have become very good friends recently, insiders added.

Adding to speculation, Paltrow didn’t stay at the hotel with other guests, opting to “stay at a friend’s house instead for more privacy,” a source reports. While attending the Victoria’s Secret party and show, she “remained closed off in a private section and hung out with Soffer and Madonna paramour Alex Rodriguez.”

On Friday, Soffer gave Paltrow a private tour of the hotel and then whisked her away in his Bentley. Saturday, she joined him on his yacht with her pal Kate Hudson.

Reports that Martin and Paltrow have been on the rocks for months have circulated in the press as they’ve refused to be photographed together. One wag snipes, “She spent the summer filming a TV show in Spain with Mario Batali and now, instead of hanging out with her husband, she goes to a Victoria’s Secret show? Really? Gwyneth doesn’t have anything to do with Victoria’s Secret. If things were so great with Chris, why wouldn’t she be with him?”

Adding fuel to the fire was the way Paltrow looked in Miami. “She was very, very thin,” a witness noted. “She looked stressed out. And she certainly didn’t act like a happily married woman.”

“Raised eyebrows?” For real? This is a non-story, if you ask me. First off, Gwyneth can’t really “hang out” with her husband right now, because Coldplay is in the middle of a huge world tour. What is she supposed to do, follow him around the world like some sort of groupie? Coldplay finish their last leg of U.S. tour dates this week before heading back to the U.K. and then to Japan. Why shouldn’t she get out and enjoy herself once in a while? Secondly, when hasn’t Gwyneth been “very very thin,” except for when she was pregnant? And finally, the comment about her not looking happy: this is Gwyneth Paltrow we’re talking about here. She’s not exactly known around Hollywood for her beaming smile and bouncy personality. I’m not saying it’s not possible that there’s trouble in paradise for these two, but to make assumptions based on some pretty flimsy speculation doesn’t convince me.

    Just saw the concert… she’d be an idiot. I don’t understand what he sees in her empty bobble-head.

  2. Kaiser says:

    Well… I agree that this report is probably mostly made up. However, I don’t really think Chris and Gwyneth have a marriage built to last, and I’ll buy that they are having problems.

    I think Page Six forgot the most important “reason” for a divorce – so Gwyneth can copy her best gal pal, The Gristle.

  3. Bros says:


    im not making any excuses for paltrow’s frostiness, but she isnt vapid or stupid. she is pretty well educated and worldly, and not just an empty bobble-head as you put it. i definitely view her as one of the more intelligent celebs, like natalie portman or jodie foster. she has a brain up there.

  4. miss_kitteh says:

    I think her left boob broke up with her right one. They’re miles apart!

  5. Baholicious says:

    Gwyneth Paltrow is plain. I think that would p!ss her off more than anything: dear, there is not one exceptional thing about you. You look like a bowl of bread and milk.

  6. Jess says:

    Do Gwyneth’s eyes look weird (like they’re pulled up) or is just me?

  7. miss_kitteh says:

    Bros, I gotta ask, what do you think of her website Goop?

    Jess, I was wondering about her eyes. too. Do you know how hard it is to get your hairstyle to come so far forward on your face that it touches (and hides!) the the crowsfeet area? There MUST be some adhesive/taping going on there.

  8. Ellen Smith says:

    Her boobs are far apart because she has such small ones, making it impossible for her to create cleavage. Also, the boning on the dress is unflattering to someone who is small busted and it is ill fitting to boot.

  9. mrs favre says:

    She was with her hubby just this weekend in Dallas for his concert and they were out to dinner together

  10. Gina says:

    YOu really shouldnt wear dresses like this when you only have an A cup. This looks really bad.

  11. gg says:

    Horrible dress all around.

  12. daisy424 says:

    Agree GG, bad choice 😯

  13. vdantev says:

    She’s in bed with Madonna folks- hello ?

  14. mamalama says:

    In addition to looking for a better fitting dress, why not find some decent posture while she’s at it! Good grief… Or maybe she’s kind of hunching over to keep the girls in the dress!

  15. Chamalla says:

    She had to go to Miami to keep ARod on his leash for Madge, right?

    I don’t think she and Martin on on the rocks, I can’t imagine she’d dare to have a high profile divorce in the same year as Madonna. I would imagine stealing Madge’s thunder is a punishable offense.

  16. sassyspank says:

    i think that they’re both tools. they make sense, actually.

  17. Jess says:

    Miss_Kitteh – good point about the hair – that is weird! She’s definitely doing something suspicious there. As for the dress, while I don’t like it, I am glad that she hasn’t given in and done plastic surgery. We need more small-chested girls to flaunt what they’ve got!

  18. Zoe says:

    It’s not the size of her breasts that’s gross, it’s how bony her damn chest is!! We should not be able to see the bones in her chest, that’s just gross (and these pics actually look way better in that regard than she usually does). Chris seems like a total tool.

  19. geronimo says:

    😆 chamalla! Madge pulling rank. Goopy will have to wait until the dust has settled!

  20. Bros says:


    the goop website is ridiculous and sanctimonious and a large PR blunder. ill give ya that. still, I kind of love the paltrow. always have.

  21. 99 says:

    wasnt there a blind item not too long ago about a musician married to an A-list actress who was partaking in groupies while on tour?? I Seem to remember that from somewhere. Hmmmmmm

  22. Granger says:

    The rumours that they’re on the rocks have not been swirling for months — they’ve been swirling for years.

    I love the quote by the “wag,” who’s up in arms that Gwyneth spent “the summer” filming in Spain and then chose to spend a weekend in Miami instead of with her husband. This is a multi-millionaire celeb we’re talking about! She jets to Miami for a weekend to hang on her billionaire friend’s yacht like the rest of us drive three hours north to camp by a lake. It’s nothing to her, or her husband.

    She looks awful in these pics. Too tanned, whether fake or real, and yes, VERY thin. But that’s to be expected when you hang with Madge and work out with that crazy-ass trainer who recommends 800 calories a day…

  23. Codzilla says:

    Yeah, her hair definitely has ulterior motives. Why else would she let it drape like death around her frozen face?

  24. Call me Al says:

    She looks like crap here — she’s finally getting old — but she’s not plain, baho. She’s just a bitch who thinks she’s not a bobble-head because she’s educated.

  25. KDRockstar says:

    Agreed… and there is book smart and street smart. She’s lost touch with normal – i.e. GOOP.

  26. mif says:

    I never understood that bit about her not wanting to be photographed with her husband in order to “protect her privacy.” Like The Gristle, it sounds like she has issues with the concept of sharing within a marriage. If she really wants to protect her privacy, don’t attend every gala, opening, premiere, etc.

  27. Buttercup says:

    She ruined coldplay for me 😥 .

  28. miss_kitteh says:

    I respect that Bros, thanks. I loved her in ‘A Perfect Murder,’ and several other films.

  29. tina says:

    I am sure they are both getting bored with each other already.
    Plus, coldplay’s music got worse when he started to date gweneth

  30. sandy says:

    you know she and madonna talk about their first loves (brad and sean) and gweneth has a voodoo doll of angelina. it’s gotta be hard to go from sleeping with brad pitt to ben affleck to chris martin. 😯

  31. Cheyenne says:

    sandy: gweneth has a voodoo doll of angelina.

    You have GOT to be kidding!!! ROTFLMBAO!!! *collapses* 😆

  32. snappyfish says:

    I don’t mean to be snippy here but Jodie Foster has a degree from Yale and Natalie Portman has a degree from Havard.

    Paltrow did not attend college. She may be more intelligent than the average actress (evidence to this I have never seen, that she thinks she is intelligent is a given) but to say she is educated and then mention two women with ivy league educations is an affront to foster and portman who actually are…educated.

  33. Sickitten says:

    Thanks Snappy. Looks like Bros is one of those that are duped by Paltrow’s facade.

  34. kate says:

    someone with boobs this saggy should never go without a bra. i still haven’t recovered from the black alexander mc queen fiasco that made her boobs look like two chicken cutlets!
