Amid denials, sources say Chris Martin & Gwyneth Paltrow’s marriage is “over”


Yesterday, Lainey Gossip broke the story about Star Magazine’s exclusive report on a possible Chris Martin and Kate Bosworth hookup. Allegedly, Chris Martin and Kate hooked up at a U2 concert a few weeks ago, in front of several eyewitnesses. In the aftermath of that report, Star put a teaser piece online, complete with an “eyewitness” to the makeout session. The eyewitness claims: “I couldn’t believe my eyes. There was Chris totally making out with Kate in front of other people. At first I thought it might be Gwyneth, but when she came up for air, it was clear the woman was Kate!” Day-um.

Oh, but that isn’t even the half of it. X17 then followed up Star’s report with a double-down on the hookup rumors. According to their sources, Chris and Kate hooked up two nights in a row, and their source claims Gwyn and Chris’s marriage is “over”.

X17 Online can report exclusively that the pair [Martin and Bosworth] were also spotted together in the bay area, during Coldplay’s appearance at the Bridge School’s benefit in NorCal the next night.

“Chris is totally Kate’s type, she loves the Brits like Orlando and James Rousseau,” says our source. “And she’s Chris’s type too. A blonde bore, just like Gwyneth!”

“Gwyneth and Chris are definitely done,” the source continues. “Their marriage is over!”

Gwyneth’s rep, Stephen Huvane issued X17 the following statement: “It is complete rubbish and another fabrication. Lawyers for both Chris and Kate are currently considering legal remedies against Star.”

[From X17 Online]

Ah, the dulcet tones of a Huvane denial. That guy should change his name, because it’s fast becoming synonymous with “snotty bullsh-t in the midst of public relations nightmares”. Meanwhile, Chris Martin’s rep went to Us Weekly for his denial:

Chris Martin’s rep is denying a new Star tabloid story that claims the Coldplay rocker, 32, recently kissed 26-year-old actress Kate Bosworth. Star quotes an unnamed as saying that Martin was “totally making out with Kate in front of other people” at an unnamed event.

But Martin’s rep tells “This story is entirely untrue.”

Martin and his wife of six years, Gwyneth Paltrow, are “more than fine,” a source tells Us.

The source says the alleged Martin-Bosworth make-out “simply never happened. She may have been in the same room with him, but he is not having an affair, was not kissing her or holding her hand.”

[From Us Weekly]

Hm… interesting. So Chris will admit to being in the same room with Kate Bosworth, but beyond that, nada. His wang never saw her vadge, in other words. You know what I find even more fascinating then the actual denial? The fact that Chris and Gwyneth’s reps are issuing separate denials. Gwyneth’s got Huvane doing his thing, while Chris’s rep is doing something else. It’s like they didn’t coordinate with each other. It’s like their marriage is in such bad shape, even their publicists aren’t speaking to each other. Of course, I’m probably reading too much into it. Maybe.

    I know that I read somewhere that their marriage was heading for trouble, but I was kind of rooting for this couple. From what I’ve read about Gwyneth, it appears that she is a ‘banana’, but aside from that, it seemed to me that they had it going on.

  2. GatsbyGal says:

    Oh man, if this is true…hahahahaha.

  3. NeNe says:


    You’re too funny! LMAO

  4. Gloaming says:

    If this is true I blame Madonna and Kablahblah and Chris Martin’s dislike of both.

  5. nAynAy says:


    I’m not quite sure what you mean by your comment. Can you please explain it?

  6. Oh My says:

    If this is true, I’m surprised there isn’t at least a blurry phone-camera pic floating around since it allegedly happened in public (of course, there may be & that’s why Martin’s rep issued a separate statement)

  7. Toe says:

    Chris Martin has to mess around. He’s not gettingany inspiration from Gwyn anymore. I dunno what to think of this story.

  8. Ursula says:

    They are both kinda off the loop so I was hoping they are together longer. But this is Hollywood, this should not be shocking anyone.

  9. snowball says:

    Gwyn looks a little.. harried? Her hair color is too close to her skin color – I’m shallow, but she needs to slap some eyeliner and mascara on at least.

    They have a weird marriage to begin with. I never understood the whole, “we don’t want paparazzi in our marriage so we’ll never be seen together.” That’s just unnatural for a married couple with two kids.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Chris is fooling around. What would be stupid is if he’s doing it out in public. Or maybe Gwenny doesn’t care.

  10. Voodoobetty says:

    @NeNe – please explain what it means when you say Gwynnie is a “Banana”? I guess Im not down with the kids these days and Im assuming thats some sort of slang.

  11. Bambi says:

    I think this was a blind item on D-listed a few days ago.

    So-and-so’s marriage is headed for the rocks because spouse A doesn’t approve of spouse B’s religion and had given spouse A an ultimatum.

    Could it be these two and Kabbalah?

  12. Miss says:

    Is she not wearing a ring in that last shot?

  13. birdie says:

    The Seven Year Itch…. I think if all this happened in public, there would be a picture, but I don’t put it past Chris. Insecurity is usually what leads people in committed relationships to stray and Chris is very insecure… Just google his comments about Gwyneth & Brad Pitt. He wants to know that he’s attractive, that women want him, blah blah blah. It’s a really low end move though, and Kate Bosworth? Her name has really been doing the sexual rounds the past few weeks.

    I feel bad for Gwyneth and the kids. Whether it’s true or not, it would be hard to trust your husband if he was a traveling rock star with rumors of other women swirling.

    And regarding their picture policy – I feel it makes them a target for these tabloid stories about their marriage being on the rocks. They don’t have any photo ops together- so in the tabloid world its as if they haven’t been in the same place together in years.

  14. bros says:

    normally, a banana references an over assimilated asian american-yellow on the outside, white on the inside. its derogatory slang, but it makes no sense to apply this to Gwyneth since she isnt asian.

  15. Firestarter says:

    Actually, I think NeNe maybe means she is crazy, like she is bananas! Maybe I am wrong.

  16. anna says:

    I was inspired to haiku:

    Chris kissed Kate one night
    Bad to laugh, but it feels good.
    ha ha at Gwyneth

  17. anna says:

    Stuck up Goop Paltrow
    Now THIS is real life for you
    Come down from your cloud

  18. anna says:

    Next feature on Goop
    How to poison cheating spouse

    Ok, I’ll stop, but it’s hard.

  19. Miss says:

    oops nope. I see it.

  20. Just a Poster says:

    Hot cofee+Anna+keyboard=MESS!

    I am not the biggest Goopy fan, but if this is true, I feel bad for Goopy. Just because she is uppity, and names her kids after fruit does not mean I want her life in chaos. That is not a fun place to be.

  21. Kaye says:

    I don’t like Gwyneth, but I hope it isn’t true because I feel bad for the kids.

  22. justathought says:

    will she come running back to the good ole USA?!

  23. anna says:

    @Just a Poster- I could be here all morning writing those haikus… thanks!

    And all joking aside…I agree, infidelity in a family is always sad. I went through it with my parents, and I know how it feels. The kids will survive it, as kids are resilient. But it is a hard blow for teaching the value of staying together if they do actually divorce.

    But, shooo, Gwyneth & Chris are in showbusiness. Goodness knows it’s nearly a rite of passage for stars to have marriages split and I’m sure Gwyneth will have a book out at some point about her “journey.”

  24. Mackenzie says:

    Where did this alleged Bosworth/Martin hookup happen? She’s been in Louisiana filming a movie for the last few months, then Los Angeles for the Scream Awards, and now she’s in Russia.

  25. princess pea says:

    What’s strange about the denials? It’s not like they’re contradictory, or anything… They are both denials, after all. I guess it’s weird that Huvane is commenting at all; is that what you meant?

    Man, oh man, that Bosworth. She’s not that interested in the single men, I gather.

  26. Megan says:

    the fact they don’t go any where together shows there’s issues… they’ve probably been over for a long time

  27. icky says:

    Goop isn’t wearing her wedding ring in the pic strange

  28. niamh (neev) says:

    I think it probably happened: Chris does seem like an insecure husband and Kate seems like an insecure starlet. Pity for gwyn, or anyone in her shoes. such a public humiliation…

  29. gg says:

    Unfortunately for her I have to say, “don’t ever marry a rock star”.

    Too many ego/women problems.

  30. crash2GO2 says:

    GatsbyGal: While I enjoy the vast majority of your posts, I really don’t understand why you find this so funny?

  31. Wresa says:

    If this is true, it seemed to be a long time coming in my eyes. They just seem like an odd couple to begin with.

    “And she’s Chris’s type too. A blonde bore, just like Gwyneth!”

    That part made me laugh out loud! It perfectly describes both of them (or maybe even Chris too)!

  32. Sumodo says:

    @gloaming I posted pretty much the same thing yesterday, and I compared it to the Guy Ritchie-Madonna split. Sometimes it’s just too much for guys to handle the Kabbalah, the self-righteousness, the bossy, castrating…dare I go on about Madge and Goopie and how they treated their husbands? And, the p-r mess with two reps who didn’t check with each other? CLASSIC. Chris is richer, because Estee Lauder is Goopie’s only steady meal ticket now (oh, Iron Man, right). Settlement is gonna be a doozy! Oh, and she’s not wearing her wedding ring? YES! From personal experience when I was a self-righteous, castrating Jewish wife, the last two years of my marriage, I’d “forget” to wear the ring for days at a time. (D’oh!)

  33. KateNonymous says:

    I don’t wish unhappiness on them; being annoying and smug doesn’t merit that. (Although who thinks Gwyneth Paltrow and Blythe Danner are the people who should be lecturing us about volunteerism? Is either of them known for that?)

    But I do think the top picture is my new favorite of GP, even surpassing the nose-in-the-air photo.

  34. 88Modesty88 says:

    Those haikus rock!

  35. Susette says:

    If all this is true, I see a very passive-agressive GOOP newsletter in the future. Wasn’t there the rumor that they were recovering, because he had a fling with Natalie Imbruglia a while back? Meh. Maybe I’m thinking of something else.

  36. Obvious says:

    Ya know I was thinking. KAte Gosselin was like Madge and Gwynie. only as far as we know she wasn’t kabbalah based and she was more upfront about how superior she is.

    Not that it’s an excuse for the cheating but it wouldn’t surprise me if this was true and if we find out that Guy because a man whore in the next couple months.

    they all need to get it out fo their system after being with such hellish women.

    yes I am a women and no I am not threaten by any of these gals, i just find their pretentious “I’m better than you all” attitudes horrifying especially since they are teaching that to their children.

  37. Cristina says:

    Poop on goop! Poop on goop! England can keep her, we don’t want her!

  38. bros says:

    icky: yes she is wearing her ring. look harder.

  39. Gloaming says:

    @ nAynAy. Here ye go…..

    Gwyneth’s clearly heavily influenced by Madonna. She introduced her to Kaballah. She also wants Gwyneth to live close to her. I’ve read that Madonna dislikes Chris Martin.
    Madonna has distanced herself from friends who don’t follow Kaballah, Gwyneth could be doing the same with Chris since he doesn’t follow it’s teachings, this may have lead to the breakdown of the marriage.Chris could have had enough.

    Just my guesstimate of course.

    But these rumours swirl around about these two every few months and as Maraid said “pics or it didn’t happen”

  40. Ally says:

    Is it possible that Bosworth was snogging that Skarsgard kid, and people who don’t watch True Blood thought it was Chris Martin?

    Alex fans, weigh in.

  41. anna says:

    Oh HAIL NO.. no way that toothy, bugged eyed, pointy head Martin could EVER be mistook for that beautiful GOD Alex. NO WAY. Unless the source was a 90 year old with failing eyesight… I can’t see that.

    No pun intended.

    LMAO @ annna, one of the best freakouts ever!!! and I thought the Twihards were fanatics.

  43. lrm4joy says:

    wow– I never heard that bannana term for asians who are ‘over assimilated’. god-like you are supposed to remain one person for your whole life,based on your exterior skin color,even when you have been raised/heavily exposed in one culture?

    I don’t want one americanize world-god no! BUT,It’s a part of the world’s problem that cultures can be so rigid as to hold steadfast to very old traditions to the point of poo-pooing new ones,simply b/c they are ‘our culture’.
    I’m sure I’ll catch slack for that,and a sound byte in a blog is not a place to have a full discussion on this,but just sayin’-wow,what a term.

    For the record, bannana=I though the poster meant ‘bannanas’ as in ‘crazy’….which certainly has been around probably longer than the other meaning re: asian.

    Anyway,I actually prefer GP to Martin anyday! Martin’s so annoying,and hey,whaddaya know-he does not seem to be taking a tip from his american wife on care of his teeth as he ages.
    Anyway,his band s*ucks-i’ve always thought it was U2 and a copycat poser thing. I know,I know,more piano in coldplay. But still….

    However,I DO believe they were completely in love,and from all accounts,this has been a real relationship,unlike so many hollywood arrangements that we constantly hear about.
    I personally have no intention of trashing GOOPy for this. Regardless of how I feel about her attitude.
    Maybe she will get back to acting at some point. Just do her job,stop giving advice. I’d like that. ha ha.

  44. Cinderella says:

    If it is true, she should give her friend William Joel a call. I hear he’s available.

  45. anna says:

    @Cinderella– HILARIOUS!

  46. ramona putz says:

    Good! it’s about time something rained on this arrogant bitch’s parade “my life is so perfect & yours isn’t Gweny Paltrow with her famous parents’ hands, money & connections under her ass.”

  47. Mairead says:

    Actually I really REALLY don’t want them to split up.

    When they’re together the insufferable is contained in a nice self-contained spot, where you can keep and eye on it and avoid it like the H1N1 if you wanted to.

    Apart – all that he’s seeing/she’s dating business just means they’ll be bleedin’ everywhere!! The world doesn’t deserve that; nay the world can’t handle that!!

    (for the record, I dislike her but give me Goopy over Budget Sting any day)

  48. Jeri says:

    I thought banana was in reference to apple – her daughters name. Like a nice way to say they’re all weird. Sad that people feel they need to spread prejudice. There is oreo & lots others. I think each race has their “food item” that puts em down.

  49. la chica says:

    when i think of GOOP i start pointing and laughing. when i think of their kids…well it’s kinda hard to laugh then.

  50. RavenMadd says:

    Budget Sting — classic!

  51. GatsbyGal says:

    @crash2GO2 – I find this funny because both her an her husband are obnoxious and snotty and think they’re better than us “normal” folk. It’s sad for their kid, yeah yeah, but it’s nice to see the two of them, especially Goop, totally miserable. Do I think she deserves this? Oh yeah.
