Is Gwyneth Paltrow ‘leaking rumors’ about Chris Martin’s alleged infidelities?

goop moses

In between paid/sponsored tweets for her new gig as a spokesperson for Restorsea, Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted this photo of Moses Bruce Paltrow Martin yesterday. Moses turned 8 years old yesterday, that’s why. It looks like he didn’t want to take the photo too, which is just funny. Perhaps he’s at the age where hugging his mom is a fate worse than death. I can hear the shriek of “Stop it, MAAAH-OM!!!” from here.

Anyway, it’s a good photo of Goop. And isn’t that the point? The Rebranding of Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth, the hands-on earth mother who feeds her blonde children all-organic food (prepared lovingly by her own hand) as Bad Father Chris Martin fools around with SNL staffers and British socialites whilst eating Big Macs. That’s the impression I’m getting – that’s the story we’re supposed to be writing about. And according to Radar, Chris is getting wise to Goop’s PR game:

It may have been a “conscious uncoupling,” but the split between Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin is getting sloppy! According to an insider, Martin, 37, fears his ex is spreading vicious cheating rumors about him to he will appear “less sympathetic” and Paltrow, 41, plans to take the Coldplay frontman to the cleaners when it comes to squeezing spousal support from him, is exclusively reporting.

“Chris now believes that Gwyneth is leaking rumors about his alleged trysts in an effort to sully his image and make him look less sympathetic,” the source told Radar. “Gwyn is so angry that she’s threatening to turn the divorce ugly, saying she’s going to squeeze spousal support out of Chris, despite her multi-million dollar fortune.”

Together, Paltrow and Martin are worth a mind-blowing $280 million — but the source says the GOOP founder could take Martin for an extra $25 million!

“Gwyneth believes she deserves a settlement of at least a lump sum of $25 million from Chris because he is the breadwinner and their kids will live with her most of the time,” the source said. “She believes Chris should ‘man up’ and do the chivalrous thing. Friends are bracing for an ugly divorce showdown.”

However, the insider claims Paltrow is furious over the recent report that Martin hooked up with a Saturday Night Live assistant — while he and Paltrow were still together.

“Friends of the of the couple point to a major double standard, with Gwyneth having pushed for open marriage so she could pursue other men, but demanding absolute fidelity from Chris,” the source told Radar. “Chris is telling friends that Gwyneth was so self-involved that she believed she was more evolved than Chris and that she could better emotionally handle juggling out of marriage relationships with other men.”

You know what? Radar ran that off the rails. Even though I’m loathe to give Gwyneth credit for anything, I honestly don’t believe she would be so gauche as to use her powerful publicist to spread rumors about Chris… in order to get more money in a divorce settlement. Now, would she try to turn the PR against Chris to protect her brand and her wholesome lifestyle image? That’s the question. I also don’t think Gwyneth offered Chris an open marriage because she wanted to fool around – I think that was Gwyneth trying to save her marriage in the face of Chris’s (alleged) infidelities.

    I’m of two minds about this.
    A) This ain’t true because both are loaded; or B) She’ll pull a Demi on Chris.

    Who knows?

    • Jem says:

      Yeah she’s pulling a Demi. Hurt him any way she can.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        I don’t think there is even a question that she wouldn’t throw him under the bus to protect her brand and make him out the bad guy.

      • Yeah and I disagree with the last thing Kaiser said–“I also don’t think Gwyneth offered Chris an open marriage because she wanted to fool around – I think that was Gwyneth trying to save her marriage in the face of Chris’s (alleged) infidelities.”

        I don’t think either of them tried to save anything. They both cheated on each other, multiple times. Neither one of them stayed home, twiddled their thumbs, and tried to play the good, supportive, understanding spouse–they had a quick courtship with Goop being vulnerable, and knocked up shortly afterwards–back to back, and then real life came, and neither of them, it seems, worked on their marriage for very long, before going to other people.

        There are no victims here–except the kids. That’s why I’m perplexed as to these cheating rumors that are coming out–especially when they supposedly had an open marriage…so that would mean it wasn’t cheating, technically.

      • Camille (The Original) says:

        I completely agree with you Virgilia Coriolanus! I disagree with Kaiser about that too.

    • Esmom says:

      I’m going with A. I call BS. 🙂

    • Hmmm says:

      I doubt neither wants those cheating rumours out in the open. If all of a sudden tons of randoms come out and claim Chris had an affair with them, she will look like some undesirable wife with a young hot rock star husband who got tired of his old wife. I bet the whole thing has been planned years ago and they just stayed together for the kids.

  2. idk says:

    I wonder if her poor son was allowed to eat cake on his birthday.

    • mimif says:

      Cute pic of them together, tho for some reason I’m seeing the photo negative of Whoopi Goldberg there.

      • mercy says:

        Lol now that you mention it… I used to think she favoured her mother, but she really looks more like her father as the years pass.

  3. swedish chef says:

    She’s annoying. Team Chris.

    • Jem says:

      I’m sure he’s just as annoying as she is, but…. Yeah, Team Chris for me too. I just… CAN’T… with her. UGH!

      • kri says:

        Ugh! Team Neither One! These two shouldn’t split up-they seem so perfect for each other. Go knock bag a few shots of coconut oil and call a truce,kids. No one else will put up with your sh^t.

      • kri says:

        Ugh! Team Neither One! These two shouldn’t split up-they seem so perfect for each other. Go knock bag a few shots of coconut oil and call a truce,kids. No one else will put up with your sh^t.

    • minime says:

      I find him so much insufferable than her…plus, for some reason, I imagine him way pickier with everything behind the scenes. It there are only two teams, then he makes me be Team Gwyneth! 😉

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Also Team Chris.

  4. Bailey says:

    Is she wearing her wedding band?

    • magpie says:

      That’s what other outlets are saying. If she’s trying to use wedding band + kid in photo for pr that’s pretty low.

      • Jem says:

        ALL of this crap is for PR. Bet on it.

      • Annaloo. says:

        Jem- you are so right. I still think this whole uncoupling thing is a way for them to PR-shield themselves from looking like the lowlife cheating spouses they really are bc they are worth so much based on their sanctimonious postions they publically take. So far, TECHNICALLY, they have never formally used the word “divorce” — it’s that ambiguous area where “technically” they could probably still be married, but we’ll never know. I’ll believe it when I see the papers filed in court as opposed to rocks being thrown at a “breakup moon”!

        I think they’re still married and will remain so!

      • Esmom says:

        Could it be that even if she tweeted the photo yesterday it was taken when she was still married? I know plenty of people who post non-current photos. Mystery solved?

    • LadySlippers says:

      Maybe this whole thing is PR for the both if them.

      We could see a ‘reunion’ yet…

    • CL says:

      I am ashamed that I know this, but that is not the wedding band she’s been wearing for the last ten years. Her wedding band was a thin band of diamonds. I have no idea what she’s wearing in the photo with Moses.

      • Annaloo. says:

        IF that is a breakup ring, then I can only guess it’s another of these weird solipsitic, sanctimonious positions Goop takes where she deigns herself higher and more enlightened than others…

        You tell everyone you’re “uncoupling”. Lady, call it what it is: a divorce. And if it ain’t, stop feeding this BS out.

        Rings or no ring, for the sake of gossip, business, fame and just basic common practice, I’m assuming they are not parted until those divorce papers hit TMZ.

        I would say “those poor kids”, but I have no idea what reality Apple and Moses live in – it seems like it’s life as usual for them, and honestly, that’s probably the only good thing that’s come of all this.

  5. Hannah says:

    Oh please who leaked the names on several alleged gwyneth hook ups and all that stuff about how she controlled him. Most of the names with re to Martin was already out there he has been heavily rumoured to be hitting all these women for years. The news here is that she is apparently just as bad as him. Don’t buy this poor nice guy act that Chris publicist is trying to flog, Chris team is coming of just as bad as gwyneth.

  6. mimif says:

    This is mean, but does Chris have birthing hips? That’s about the only thing that piqued my interest in this story.
    *dons hair shirt immediately*

    • blue marie says:

      I raise your birthing hips with thank goodness he’s in music, it’s the only way he’ll score. Dude is about attractive as a hairy mole on a buttcheek… too mean?

      • Cloud&feather says:

        FFS! lol did not need that visual while I eat!

      • mimif says:

        Bahaha no…I mean maybe but we can do penance together, by listening to Toto on repeat. 😀

      • blue marie says:

        that dang song was in my head all day yesterday mimi.

      • We Are All Made of Stars says:

        OMG I don’t think he’s bad looking at all! I mean, he’s in the middle of a divorce in which he is maybe, possibly being made out to look like a bad guy, so some unflattering photos of him are coming out. I actually think he’s fairly attractive in his own way.

      • Eleanor Zissou says:

        I think he’s really really attractive.
        Out of curiosity, which rock musicians do you girls find attractive? Current ones?

      • bobbisue says:

        I used to be so hot for Chris but he totally has birthing hips.

    • QQ says:

      Toto at least hit his high notes… is more than we can say about Chris Live… Also I Hate you Mimif

      • mimif says:

        But you know I love you QQuuuuuu! I dedicate the new Coldplay single “Magic” to you. 😀
        @blue marie, I blew up your Rosanna post on yesterday’s Jennifer Garner thread because that sh-t was in my head all day too.

      • blue marie says:

        “Now she’s gone and I have to say..”
        2 days! 2 days this sh-t’s been playing in my head

  7. KB says:

    I don’t like her, but I still think he cheated first. I don’t know why, considering she has a history of alleged cheating…but I just do.

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I totally think this should be covered, so this isn’t one of those posts, but I’m surprised at how little interest I have in this. I guess because it seems like it was all over for such a long time, they were both sleeping around, so the details are just sort of irrelevant.

    • mimif says:

      ITA. I’m more confounded as to how much, erm, action they both allegedly have been getting as they both seem so…well let’s just say at first look I wouldn’t consider either of them to be oozing sex appeal.

    • Bridget says:

      The part that I find really interesting about this split is how calculated it was. But Paltrow and Martin themselves? Yawn. Soppy British musician and insufferable WASPy Princess aren’t the most scintillating combination.

    • The Original G says:

      AGNT. +1 yeah.

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed. This new stuff just seems redundant, excessive, anticlimactic and probably not even true in this particular case. Zzz.

  9. blue marie says:

    Meh, I’m not sure it’s possible for either of them to look less sympathetic. They both seem like giant PIA’s so.. whatever

  10. Jem says:

    Knowing Goop, she’ll have a New Age ceremony for ‘Now Things are Going to get Ugly”, or something. She wears me out with her nonsense. I can’t IMAGINE what it’s like to live with her.

  11. Loopy says:

    This is terrible,i wonder if those poor kids try to ask for their friends chocalatey, cheesy, creamy , fattening etc snacks at school. But its LA maybe all kids are on some strange diets.

    • mercy says:

      I grew up in a ‘no junk food’ household. They probably all sneak off to the market after school and scarf Pringles and candy like we did. 😉

  12. Bridget says:

    I think they’re just trying to give Chris a rock star reputation again. ‘Look, he’s been hooking up with groupies the whole time! See, he’s not just a neutered Mr. Paltrow!’. Right in time for the new album to come out.

    • LadySlippers says:

      That is my option C.

      I’ll laugh A LOT if this whole thing is to help his new album and or help her get some better roles in Hollywood. So if we hear, ‘After much soul searching, C & G are going to give their marriage another go’ in the next year, we’ll know why….

      • Bridget says:

        With all the cheating stuff about GP coming out, they pretty much HAVE to leak stuff about CM or run the risk of him looking like a total sad-sack. I don’t know if the divorce itself is a sham, but everything about it has seemed so calculated. The announcement on GOOP, right before his album comes out? Right after they c$ckblocked Vanity Fair? Ugh.

  13. Abbicci says:

    And since she is still wearing her ring that must mean she didn’t want a divorce at all. It’s all Chris’ fault, he couldn’t cheat as well as she could. If only he had taken her cheating without remorse class they would still be married.

    And nice way to roll out the kids for the coming dog and pony show. Warm them up to being cogs in the Goop machine.Mommy is going to need them to be a lifestyle brand.

  14. Arock says:

    Chris looks like Wednesday Addams boyfriend in that picture.
    Goop no doubt kind of reveling in this attention- I’m sure she uses it to further prove how “we” just don’t understand true suffering or heroism and she will rise like a phoniex from the ashes due to kelp shakes and coffee enemas.

  16. GeeMoney says:


    I love Goop, though. *somewhat hangs head in shame*

  17. The Original G says:

    Duh. Of course. Who else cares?

  18. The Original Mia says:

    Is water wet?

    She’s trying to shape public perception of their conscious uncoupling in her favor. Except no one feels sympathy for her. Probably because most suspect she’s was cheating right along with him.

    • Exactly. No one believes all that crap about her staying home, after working for a few weeks out of the year, and being the loving, doting, long suffering wife–who has to put up with her husband’s cheating (with her kind of money, no one would believe that, period). In between the ten minutes of ‘work’ that she does for the Goop site, she gets her ‘exercise’ in…who wants to bet that those four hours that she said she worked out, before her kids got home from school, was of the bedroom variety? I do.

      There are no victims–well, the kids.

  19. mkyarwood says:

    If she is, I don’t think she’s on her own. Chris has his own PR team.

  20. K says:

    Team kids.

    • Lauren says:

      I cannot imagine what Apple and Moses have seen-heard-read these past few years. I have a terrible feeling that there is a Goopie Dearest memoir on the horizon.

  21. becky says:

    On Gwyneth’s teeth:
    Are those veneers? They two top teeth in the front, (the twins that sit next to each other) look very nice. Any dental experts here?

  22. Ag says:

    i loved michaal k’s comment on this pic: “What a completely natural portrait that was probably taken by Mario Testino and was created with the help of 3 assistants, 4 lighting designers, 2 hair stylists, 3 make-up artists who specialize in creating the SAN FARDS look, 2 publicists, a body language coach, and a nanny waving a Twinkie.” LOL

    • Suki2 says:

      That’s great. Don’t forget the specialists in ‘sans photoshop look’ digital retouching.

  23. Liz says:

    I doubt Chris is going to be eating a Big Mac since he’s a vegetarian.

  24. Liz says:

    Goop doesn’t have to leak info about his affairs because Chris known for being discrete.

  25. Emily C. says:

    I think Goop would absolutely do this to get more money in the divorce settlement. I think that’s why she clung to the marriage for 10 years when it wasn’t working for a lot longer than that, and I think that is why she moved to California and the split was announced one year after.

    As for getting sympathy, she was getting some in the beginning (which I do not understand), but it seems to be drying up as people point out that 1) she’s always cheated on her relationships and 2) during her marriage, she was cheating with married men apparently exclusively.

  26. BNA FN says:

    I totally believe GOOP will try to throw CM under the bus. Anyone remember after she cheated on Brad and they broke up she tried to throw him under the bus. I believe Brad told her to tell the truth she cheated or he would. Then several years later she admitted to Diane Sawyers that she was the reason of her own misery and it took her five years to get over Brad.

    • (The Original) Violet says:

      Yeah, that was my thought too. My take is that she probably made it clear to Chris from day one that she never expected fidelity, knowing that she herself was incapable of being faithful.

  27. mercy says:

    “I also don’t think Gwyneth offered Chris an open marriage because she wanted to fool around – I think that was Gwyneth trying to save her marriage in the face of Chris’s (alleged) infidelities.”

    That sounds about right. Maybe it was her way of saying to him “I’m not that into you, either. I just haven’t acted on my desires yet because I’m more honest, loyal, and have more self control than you.”

    • allheavens says:

      Why do people almost always assume it’s the man who has the position of power in a marriage?

      GP has controlled almost every aspect of her existence but not her marriage? She does not do desperate, I don’t buy the open marriage, I think they both cheated but GP was more discreet. Discreet, meaning she slept with men who had just as much to lose as she did, “married men”. I think she is just that calculating.

      I don’t think Goop thought CM had the balls to cheat on her that openly or that often. However that was her miscalculation but narcissist never think anyone sees them as other than the greatest thing since sliced bread.

      CM is a pretentious twat but let’s face it he’s a man and they are NEVER as slick as they think they are. Besides groupies aren’t exactly discreet and women who think he loves them ( but find out he doesn’t) are not always going to be discreet.

      They will have a nice quiet divorce and they will do as much damage control as possible but that will be difficult because their past behavior is truly coming back to bite them in their arses.

  28. Bread and Circuses says:

    Yeah, I agree Radar borked that one. That narrative isn’t even slightly believable.

    For what it’s worth, I think these two *will* have a low-key, drama-free divorce. The press will stir the pot hard, but that pot will ultimately prove to be as dry as the fat-free, carb-free cake Gwyneth undoubtedly made Moses eat on his birthday.

  29. Kim says:

    Loath–reluctant or unwilling. Even though I am loath…..not loathe

  30. anne says:

    This is absolutely 100 % how Gwyneth operates. He agreed to,allowing her to spin it her way, since knew she would work it in her favor…. and milk it for PR but didn’t care. He just wanted more time for himself and kids without her around. He gave her everything she asked! Been paying for her for years, and plans on giving all he spent on her to charity now in addition to her huge cash settlements, child support etc. He still has enough for him and kids to be well off, does not need more luxuries than that. (Didn’t even want luxurious pad as new Malibu place but purchased it partly for her greed, plus room for band to visit as well as kids and family (and to go along with her half living together stuff – what else is new. But, as much as he has despised her last 5 years or so, still can’t believe she would be this hurtful to him as to all these rumors leaked so fast all over and knows she is behind it totally. And anyone that knows he,r will tell ya this is just how she works. Reeks of her exactly and totally believable. Poor guy, she is also spreading the “he wants her back” theory. BS. Probably wrote Magic years ago when he wrote Wedding Bells and all the Natalie Imbruglia songs for her and they were mostly for Natalie. Or maybe even agreed to write Magic and release it now (she is controlling and image freaked and does this bizarre stuff all the time. Truth is – he is thrilled charade is over and totally confident kids better off too now. It is low of her after all she did but again – her whole life story has been this precise behavior. Also shad new veneers put in recently (too big!) and other work done (yet more) quoting to someone how happy she wanted to look to all to prove how much better she was at handling divorce, and jumped gun on timing of PR release without Chris agreeing and not best timing for kids – all for her image too! Truth is – he is thrilled charade is over and totally confident kids better off too now. It is low of her after all he did for her but again – her whole life story has been this precise behavior.

  31. DIANE says:

    Well who can blame him for cheating on her? Imagine living with somebody as insufferable as she is….Perfect…All Knowing…why, practically Royalty, in her own eyes. He may be just as obnoxious as she is, but at least he’s not preaching about how wonderful he is to the rest of us every f*cking day.

  32. JH says:

    I don’t like that the kids get to stay in LA with her, Chris doesn’t like LA and has gone back to the UK, I’m not saying the kids shouldn’t be with her, they should, as much as they should be with their dad, but what I’ve read is that she pushed for the move telling Chris it was only fair since she had put her life and career on hold to move with him to London, really? I think she moved to London to satisfy her own fantasy, to shove it in her American friends’ faces, to adopt a British accent and to get to have kids that grow up in London, now the whole family moves to LA and they split, knowing Chris will have to go back to engand. Shady shady goop. I didn’t use to dislike her, but everything she does seems so contrived, I can’t imagine being in her circle, she’s so full of it.

  33. Morgana says:

    I don’t condone cheating by any means ( I’m married myself) I know how hypocritical this sounds …but …here it goes….with a wife that does nothing except spouts off how self important, perfect, can do no wrong from acting to being a mom & everyone else sucks…I reeeeeeally can’t blame him if he did… I Know…I know…I said it was Hypocritical ….BUT…understandable..JMO…NO HATE PLEASE🙉😉
