Chris Martin & Dua Lipa were kissing at the Glastonbury music festival

Mid-June, we learned that Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson had split up. They were together for about 20 months, and they reportedly split because Chris wanted to settle down and have a baby and Dakota was like “nah, I’d rather focus on my career.” If that’s the way it went down, I’m proud of Dakota. I also theorized that after a year and a half, Dakota was probably done with Gwyneth Paltrow, who seems to insert herself in all of Chris’s relationships post-divorce. To be fair, Chris LETS Gwyneth do that and it’s on him to change that dysfunctional dynamic, which he hasn’t done. So just imagine what lengths Gwyneth would go to when she finds out about this: Chris Martin might be starting up something with 23-year-old Dua Lipa.

He recently split from his Fifty Shades of Grey star girlfriend Dakota Johnson, following a 20 month romance. But it seems that Chris Martin has already moved on as he was reportedly spotting kissing Dua Lipa backstage at Glastonbury. The Coldplay frontman, 42, apparently made a beeline for the New Rules hitmaker, 23, after he saw her at the event, with the pair getting very close indeed. Dua herself is freshly single following her split from chef Issac Carew, 33, earlier this month, after 18 months together.

A source revealed to The Sun: ‘As soon as Chris caught Dua’s eye, he was over like a shot — and he didn’t leave her side all night. She seemed happy to be in his company and even introduced him to her family.’

The insider went on to explain that the duo were chatting to each other ‘for ages’ and that whenever they were alone, Chris got ‘really flirty with her’. They added: ‘There was clearly a lot of chemistry between them — and when they headed to the Guerilla bar in the Shangri-La area, he saw his moment and they shared a kiss.’

And it appears that it’s a case of déjà vu as the musical pair’s smooch comes two years after they first locked lips at the Worthy Farm site. Chris and Dua previously shared a kiss in the VIP area, after they became close while working on a track called Homesick.

It makes me sad on so many levels. The top level being that I don’t think enough people care enough about Dua Lipa to actually be concerned about this! I love Dua, I love her voice and her vibe and her look and I want her to become a bigger thing. Dating Chris Martin might make her a bigger thing, but mostly it will just be a pain in the ass as he and his ex-wife play tag-team head games with her. Of course, “making out at Glastonbury” doesn’t mean they’re dating. I hope that’s what it was, just an innocent makeout session and Dua is like “wow I could do so much better.” Also: a 23-year-old touring singer isn’t MORE likely than a 29-year-old actress to settle down and have a baby with a 42-year-old dude, you know?

    Is it just me or does Chris Martin look like he smells?!

    • Mira says:

      Not just you.

    • Chaine says:

      Yea, he looks like he smells.

      • Justwastingtime says:

        Yes, I could see that.. he also looks like he would bore one to death …bad combo.

    • Hikaru says:

      He looks like he uses some alternative hippie deodorant that doesn’t actually work but believes he doesn’t have any body odour because he ~eats clean and vegan~ unlike the rest of us mortals.

    • Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

      Maybe his stench sent Gwenyth off the Goop deep-end.

      • henry f acosta says:

        Gynneth is also known for having body stench as she doens’t use deoderant.

  2. Michael says:

    I thought she was dating Anwar Hadid. Maybe that was just an LA thing

  3. bored at work says:

    Ugh. Run, Dua, run! On the gossip side of things though, I’d love to see how Gwynnie would handle this 🙂

  4. perplexed says:

    Isn’t Dua Lipa only 7 years older than Apple? I guess this stuff happens when the guy is 40 and the girl is in her early twenties, but it’s still interesting to think about.

  5. Agapanthus says:

    A spokesman for Martin has supposedly issued a statement saying they were not kissing. But, if they were, it doesn’t surprise me as exactly the same thing was reported 2 years ago, just after he split from Annabelle Wallis. A bit disrespectful being so public with someone new after breakups, but I suspect this is his pattern.

    I also don’t buy the story about him wanting kids now…my hunch would be that he was unfaithful. By all accounts he is a decent bloke and I like some of his politics but I think he is a commitment- phobe.

    • dj says:

      After Gwinnie. I’d be a commitment phobe too! LOL. Besides Annabelle Wallis moved on to something much better…Chris Pine!

      • Agapanthus says:

        I KNOW!! Living her best life with the best Chris!! 😂

        Also, there were rumours A Wallis got pregnant early in the relationship with CM and he dumped her but they got back together after a termination- another reason I don’t buy the wanting more kids now story.

  6. Everley says:

    Nuh, they reported the same thing two years ago that he was all over Katy Perry at the same venue.

  7. Loretta says:

    I hope for Dua Lipa that it’s false. He seems to be a jerk

  8. Niaa says:

    She is in a long-term relationship with her chef boyfriend. They are pretty public about it on Instagram.

  9. pyritedigger says:

    If true, this guy has to be phenomenal in the sack, because I don’t get it otherwise.

    • Blueskies says:

      He must have learned a thing or ten because I remember him admitting to a UK music magazine that he was a bit “green” before Gwenyth. So…thank you, Gwenyth? 🤭

  10. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    His music was for depressed teenagers in the early 2000. His band is way past it’s heyday and he’s not attractive and smelly-looking. How does Chris Martin keep getting hot young women? Is it because they want to get close to GP?

    • Hotsauce says:

      @Queen Meghan loling at that it was for depressed teenagers cos it totally was for me. It was my version of emo music lmao

      I still listen to it now and then when I know I need a good cry lol

  11. SM says:

    I am sorry, but Chris and his band is the exact opposite of exciting to me, so I have hard time imagining him having crazy chemistry with anyone or anything. This is why he matched so well wit Goop and Dakota. Both also the opposite of electric sexual energy. So no. Whatever that was that probably was just too much alcohol and partying.

  12. Eva says:

    Just once I would love to see a man over 30 years old date a woman his own age.


    • Blueskies says:

      Seriously. I’m seeing a lot of guys my age, 48-50 getting together with or marrying women in their early 30s. Then often having her first child or two. Just that 15 to 20 year gap, how convenient for the men. It’s not extreme but it just elicits a “really?”

  13. GreenQueen says:

    Ewwwww. That man gives me the willies. He reminds me of that emo kid from freshmen year of high school who just never grows up.

    2 things that drives me nuts: Those stupid beanies he loves to wear and how it always looks like he stole those stickers that my 4 year old niece wears as earrings. Stop with the friggin sticker earrings Chris!!!! Can’t stand him. Anyway, run boo, run so f’ing fast!!

  14. Croatian says:

    I really don’t understand how you want Dua Lipa to become a bigger thing. Have you seen her career? She IS the biggest thing!
    Chris Martin, that’s so 2001

  15. Ruyana says:

    I just can’t help it. I always read the name Dua Lipa and Two Lips. Can’t help it.

  16. Starkiller says:

    Dua may not be “a thing” in the US, but she’s quite popular in Europe, especially the UK.
