Radar: Chris Martin is ‘just fed up with Gwyneth Paltrow’s childish antics’


Chris Martin didn’t wear his ring last night in Brooklyn. This is big news, for some reason, I guess because Gwyneth Paltrow has been stepping out all over LA whilst wearing her wedding ring. Chris went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony to induct Peter Gabriel. According to witnesses, Chris was in great spirits, smiling and joking and seeming “at ease.” You can see some photos of Chris at the event here.

I’ve been trying to figure out the consciously uncoupled nonsense for a few weeks now, and just when I think I’ve gotten a handle on what’s really going on, Radar or Page Six comes up with some new wrinkle that makes me question my theories. My take is still that both Chris and Gwyneth were fooling around and their marriage had been “on the rocks” and “open” for years now. I also think Gwyneth wants to be seen as sympathetic in the public eye and that perhaps she simply went along with the open marriage thing because Chris was chronically unfaithful. But for his part, Chris seems to be handling his own press and “image” rather well, probably because most of us will believe the worst about Goop no matter what. Anyway, add this wrinkle to all the other stories:

Manipulative much? Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin made their “conscious uncoupling” announcement, the Academy Award-winning actress has been boasting to pals that she STILL has the Coldplay frontman wrapped around her finger, RadarOnline.com has been told. What’s more, the controversial GOOP founder believes that if she wanted him back, the British-born rocker would take her back, no questions asked!

A source close to the split said: “Gwyneth might think that, but Chris just isn’t having it. He is over being treated like a second fiddle. Everything in their marriage was ALWAYS all about Gwyneth.”

Complicating matters for the 41-year-old mother-of-two, her swaggering has made it back to Martin!

“He is just fed up with Gwyneth’s childish antics,” noted the insider. “Yes, they did attend mutual friend Robert Downey Jr.‘s birthday party over the weekend, but trust me, it was more Gwyneth hanging all over Chris! She only makes these grand gestures in public. Behind closed doors, she is as cold as ice! It’s all a game to Gwyneth. She is deliberately putting out a message that all she has to do is snap her fingers and Chris will come running back. But in reality, it is not true.”

“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.”

Meanwhile, Martin is “looking forward to getting back out on the road with Coldplay,” to promote their upcoming album, Ghost Stories.

“The band intends on embarking on a world tour in support of the album, which could see them on the road for at least the next nine months,” said one insider.

“The timing couldn’t be better for Chris to get out of Los Angeles. The plan is for the band to perform for two-three weeks at a time, with at least a two week break, so he can spend time with his children,” Apple, 9, and Moses, 7.

I think Gwyneth probably does believe Chris (and every other man) is in love with her and if she DEIGNED to allow him back into her bed, he would come running. But yeah… I think Chris is over it. I think he’s been over it for some time. But Gwyneth is over it too. I don’t understand why we still have to fight over which one isn’t moving on or whatever – they’re both ready to end this marriage and rebrand themselves. Notice the little advertisement for Coldplay’s new album too.

Also, Coldplay’s new video for “Magic” is terrible.

    Wow this is getting more attention than Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, Prince Charles and Princess Di and Kim K and Humpries(ugghh had to mention) all together. Bore Off!

    • boopti says:

      Let’s be clear: Brad and Jennifer aniston got mega attention sure, back then whoever was with Brad became famous, if you were an ambitious actress on tv with a super flack PR guy he was going to make sure you got all the ink you could handle from the association. Paltrow’s flack is the same person. Hence why this divorce has been turned into a big event. The biggest of goops career.

  2. LadyMTL says:

    I’m not a Goop lover by any stretch but I seriously doubt that the divorce came about because she’s an anal-retentive so-and-so. Or at least not only because of that. There are two people in a marriage, after all, and I’m sure that he’s just as “guilty” as she is…only he’s better at spinning the story to his advantage.

  3. mel says:

    I actually kind of like her a little bit more for leaving Chris. I think he treated her terrible…never wanting to show up and support his wife….making a huge deal about being photographed together. He just perpetuated her perfectionism…in my opinion.

  4. blue marie says:

    While I’m no fan of Goop, I don’t believe that everything in their marriage was about her. She lived in England for years for him, she allowed him to run away like a child when threat of being photographed together. No, she’s selfish but so is he I’m betting.

    • Erinn says:

      I think, generally anyway, most celebrities are selfish by nature. They almost have to be in a way to get where they are. I also thing the marriage was a mutual failure, and that it’s not right to pin it on any one person.

      That being said, I don’t doubt at all that he’s tired of the PR antics. She has turned herself into such a brand, that she feels the need to protect that brand at all costs. He seems a little more chill regarding his persona (other than the photo crap) and I think it would be annoying to see the way the divorce has turned into a circus in the media.

    • JLM says:

      everything that you said, Blue Marie.

    • Lauren says:

      Gwyneth left her homeland to be with Chris. She seemed keen initially, but missed her mum and friends. All of Gwyneths exes walked the red carpet with her. Yet, her own husband refuses. VERY insulting and hurtful. Sadly, Chris had no qualms about making out with Kate Bosworth at a U2 concert! I think Gwyneth was devastated by that fact and has been retaliating ever since. Two monsterous egos killed this marriage.

      • FLORC says:

        Yup to you and Blue.
        Goop can be a terror, but he’s no saint. He’s shown himself previously to be very immature. I doubt he”s outgrown that. Possibly the 1 person in his life that could hold him accountable is gone and he’s free to be a mess again.

  5. poppy says:

    it isn’t necessary to quote these unidentified persons. just take what goopers says directly and you have all the material you need for an analysis. sanctimonious, insecure, narcissistic, control freak with body dysmorphia and a huge sense of entitlement.
    but the coverage of them lately is silly hearsay. they need to dig up some real dirt because it is there.
    i’m prejudiced against them both, fwiw.

  6. Kelly says:

    I just can’t stand the sight of her, sorry.

  7. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I’m bored now, until the real juicy gossip hits anyway. Any more enigmatic tweets from Alexa? Actually the Chris/Alexa thing is boring too now. I’m so gossip jaded. I think despite gossip website antipathy, Gwyneth is winning. She was born for this kind of thing.

    • Nina W says:

      She’s winning because she has been a good wife and mother and, even if she’s a little grating, I think it’s clear she put a lot of effort into her marriage and children. She put her own career on the back burner, focused on her children, moved to England and probably put up with his absence a lot and that’s only the obvious stuff.

  8. Marybel says:

    We’re ALL fed up with Goop’s childish antics. They cover up her crunchy granola boringness.

  9. lunchcoma says:

    Yeah, they’re both done with each other. She irritates me to no end, but she’s ALWAYS been like that and he married her and stayed with her for 10 years. I don’t think he’s necessarily some cool, laid back everyman, either.

  10. Whitney says:

    Goop really does seem like such a pretentious ice-bitch who cares only about her public persona, but I don’t think it’s all on her here. Something about Chris Martin has always struck me as unbelievably arrogant, I don’t know why.

    • Splinter says:

      I think they both have their flaws, and probably had a lot of problems, but she was willing to save this marriage – beacause of her image, children, I dont know – but I guess he does not want to play along anymore. He surely seems happy, she – not so much.

  11. BamBam says:

    “Childish” I like that, GP seems a hauty know-it-all big girl! Thinks she’s a classy lady, but really sort of misses…

  12. The Original G says:

    Sigh. In my peasanty neighborhood this is what is commonly called *keeping up appearances* and *staying together for the sake of the kids.*

  13. Boodiba says:

    As for the new Coldplay video, I think the visuals are a hell of a lot better & more interesting than that Godawful song! I haven’t listened to the radio in years, but I do have some old Coldplay in my iTunes and it’s not bad at all. What happened? Yuck!

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I’m kind of liking the song (although I’m typing instead of watching the video.) I’m finding it very chill and mellow-pretty.

  14. G says:

    Really all Chris has to do is be quiet and let Goop shred herself.

  15. Aura says:

    Anyone else think it’s funny that this video features a Chinese woman who is a magician?

    Alexa Chung. Magician’s assistant at a Stella McCartney party, just sayin’

  16. Emily C. says:

    Why on earth do you think Chris was “chronically unfaithful” but Gwyneth wasn’t? She’s cheated on everyone she’s ever been with, and she cheats with married men.

    I think calling Goop “childish” is an insult to children. But Chris’s (and/or his publicists’) best bet would be to shut up and disappear for a bit. The best thing for him would be for people to forget he was ever married to her, because “married to Goop for 10 years” was not a sound or admirable decision.

  17. JJ says:

    I never cared for his music, even before I registered they were an item his music annoyed the hell out of me. He is a shit singer and they make mainstream pretentious annoying music.

  18. dj says:

    I am tired of this story too. I have to say with all of these pictures of G.P. I really wish she would cut off her damaged hair! I really liked it when it was a shorter bob. It looked very chic (as much as I hate to say it). Now would be a great time for her to go a different way.
