Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow Are “Very Close,” But Not Back Together (VIDEO)
Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow may be “consciously uncoupled,” but it doesn’t sound like we should hold our breaths waiting to hear the sordid details of a nasty end to their marriage. According to the Coldplay frontman himself, it’s all good between him and his former wife.
“The thing that we told everyone in the beginning of the year is true,” Chris told radio show Valentine in The Morning, according to People. “We’re very close. We’re not together. That’s the truth.”
Chris and Gwyneth first announced their split in March, when they admitted that they’d been separated for awhile, and had made the decision to keep going their separate ways. And although Chris has abandoned vegetarianism since their separation, he hasn’t stopped caring for Gwyneth.
“There’s a lot of love,” the 37-year-old said. “There’s no scandal.”
Rumors of reconciliation were sparked in June when Gwyneth and Chris were spotted looking cozy out to dinner together, but make no mistake: They’re definitely not headed for a reunion. What witnesses (and the paparazzi) saw was nothing more than a dinner between two people who are parents to the same kids.
“I don’t know why that is surprising since they were very clear when they announced their breakup that they were still very much a family, just not a couple,” their rep said in response to the rumors. “Don’t make a story where there is none.”
Even if there is no hope of them getting back together, we’re glad to hear that they’re still working together to provide the best lives possible for their children. Way to go, guys!
