Chris Martin still hasn’t sued anyone over Kate Bosworth affair story


After spending some time in America – where he may or may not have hooked up with Kate Bosworth – Chris Martin is back in London with his wife and kids, looking like he normally does. The camera seriously does not love this guy. Anyway, last week was full of stories about the alleged affair between Chris Martin and Kate Bosworth. Everyone went a little crazy for several days, and sources were coming out of the woodwork to tell the tabloids and media outlets how Chris and Gwyneth Paltrow’s marriage was basically over, and how Gwyneth is supremely annoyed by comments Chris made claiming Kate is Gwyneth’s “younger version”. Allegedly, Chris was going to sue over Star Magazine’s report – ABC News even reported that a lawsuit was coming. Then, nothing. After last’s week tabloid explosion, it seems like everybody is in their separate corners, recuperating.

As Lainey Gossip notes today, “So far, no law suit has been announced. They always say they’ll sue and they say it very loudly that they’ll be suing and then they don’t end up suing sh-t. But oh no, Chris Martin wouldn’t cheat on his wife. Never. Of course he’s suing.” Meanwhile, only In Touch Weekly is brave enough to do a follow up report – sources tell them that Gwyneth has always wondered if Chris was faithful, and that she and Chris have little in common anymore. Here’s more:

Gwyneth Paltrow believes her husband when he denied the Kate Bosworth affair, but she “wonders is he’s always been faithful,” a friend says, explaining, “They spend a lot of time apart and on different continents.”

As much as they love their kids, Apple, 5, and Moses, 3, the couple have been finding little common ground in recent years. The friends says that Gwyneth has “changed a lot” growing more serious and developing an interest in Kabbalah, while Chris, 32, has “stayed the same,” and as a result the two have little to talk about.

“The only thing they may have in common these days is their kids,” the friend explains. And although Gwyneth is trying hard to work things out with Chris, some wonder if it’s worth it.

I’ve said it before, but I do think there was something between Chris and Kate, and I do think Chris and Gwyneth’s marriage is having a lot of problems. While I really don’t have any kind of guess as to when Chris and Gwyneth will split, I do think a split is coming. At first, I kind of thought that Gwyneth wouldn’t want to admit that she made a mistake, or that her life isn’t as perfect as she snottily reminds us all of the time. But now I’m thinking that Gwyneth is weighing her options and looking for a way out. We’ll see.

    I feel compelled to say this everytime I see him. I want to yank the tape of his pretentious hands.

  2. Kaboom says:

    Seriously, who could blame him for not wanting to come home to someone who looks like a deranged cleaning lady spewing Goop?

    Haiku time…

    Chris’s threats to sue
    Hollow like his sap music
    He is a pansy

    “You ruined my world!
    People think I’m not perfect!”
    Gwyn glares at hubby

  4. Jeri says:

    But Gwynnie’s parents never divorced. Maybe Mommie will give her permission.

  5. Sakota says:

    I wonder if she makes him eat soy, all vegan dishes, and pesters him about not being famous enough and not taking her to all the A-list parties. Let’s remember that he has to ome home to this person we rag on all the time.

    Being married to her might end up like being married to Oprah, having all her lifestyle theories experimented on you all the time. *bullet in head*

    As the mom of a 3 and 5 year old myself, I’ll be the first to say that having two young kids is hard on your relationship! You get so little time alone together that it can be quite overwhelming at times. Now, mind you, I don’t have the benefit of nannies, chefs and personal trainers to GIVE me more time — but what I’m trying to say is, Chris and Gwyneth got pregnant and then married pretty quickly into their relationship, so if they weren’t totally “good” before, it wouldn’t be any surprise now to find that they’re struggling.

  7. rox says:

    It would be bad enough to have a struggling marriage if you were trying to make it work without a younger person who needs the publicity for relevance to break in taking advantage of an already difficult situation. If this is true and if Bowsworth had any integrity at all she should have waited til the separation was announced before publicly dating her meal ticket.

  8. Pole says:

    @anna: Ha, ha, ha 😀

    I wonder if Gwynteth is as prententious as ‘herself’ as she seems to be as her public persona. If she is, I seriously would not blame him for trying to have some fun. I wonder if it’s true though – I thought Kate were banging my next husband – and by that I mean Alexander Skarsgard, NOT Chris Martin? Hmm.

  9. Karin says:

    It would be a shame for them to split up.

    If Coldplay tunes is the music he makes when ‘happy’, just imagine the colossal whining when he feels the need to share end-of-relationship woes in a new album. Please, please, please NO.

  10. Essie says:

    Kaiser, I have to completely disagree with you. Not about whether or not Chris had a thing with Kate or whether or not there is real trouble in the marriage; no, I totally disagree that Gwynnie will leave Chris!! I don’t think she will because it would make her look bad and it would rock her secure little world. As I have said before, Gwynnie learned from her mother that you keep your home together, no matter what, and that’s what she will do. No, these two people are doomed to be together forever. That’s what I believe. (All bets are off if Chris does something so ridiculous, with pictures, that Gwynnie can’t ignore anymore.)

    Re: the lawsuit . . . it takes a pretty good while before a lawsuit is actually filed. It’s only been a week or so since these reports came out. Martin has to get together with his attorney to get the wording right to see if there is actually grounds for a suit (was it libel? slander? what?) Everything has to be written up/typed and then filed with the Court. Sometimes these things can take a month or more. I’m not saying Martin will yet file a suit but one week is too soon to laugh about a suit not being filed.

  11. Tia C says:

    @ Leticia – what tape? I know nothing about him, other than all his music sounds exactly the same… or like music that someone else wrote, lol.

  12. Catherine says:

    Can I sue him for his music that sucks?

  13. andrea says:

    essie – i disagree. i guarantee you, if you are chris martin and hopping mad to sue someone asap, they will be sued, STAT. a week in attorney-client time (esp where the client is wealthy/famous) is an eon. and i assure you chris martin has armies of well-paid, extremely fast-moving and well-staffed attorneys at his disposal and that “typing things up” would not be a hold-up for him. maybe he doesnt want to sue, maybe he will, maybe he wont, who knows, im just saying if he wanted to sue asap, he could’ve done so – typing and filing are not issues here.

  14. Vermithrax says:

    LOLZ @ anna. Nice haiku.

    Tools of a feather… as they say.

  16. lrm says:

    it IS possible that yes,they were in love,had children that were wanted,and things have changed…that doesnt make it a ‘mistake’,and it doesn’t mean her staying with him is a ‘compromise’,either.
    I agree,she is weighing her options.
    And I agree,it would be very hard to go through issues publicly like this.

    I also agree,she is pretentious,and I wish she would have stuck to acting-and then we could see her if we wanted to,by going to her movies. (unlike some,I thought she was a good actress with potential.)

  17. Kevin says:

    Karin, you hit that nail square on the head. If Taylor Swift’s dad had to pay to jump start her career, how the hell much did it cost to get Coldplay on the air. They are the suck!

  18. Jazz says:

    Geez, it seems like banging a married man is the new black lately.

  19. fortune tella says:

    I agree that she’s weighing her options. She’s only taking her time cause she’s trying to line up a businessman (preferably European) before she moves on. She’ll have 2 more marriages and spawn in one of them before she makes her inevitable move to TV.

  20. I totally disagree that she will leave Chris.I don’t think so because it would make her look bad and it would rock her secure little world.
