Gwyneth Paltrow’s Ex, Donovan Leitch Engaged to Libby Mintz
One of Gwyneth Paltrow’s exes is engaged to his much younger girlfriend — despite the fact that he’s still legally married. However, we’re not talking about Chris Martin, whom reports last week linked romantically with 24-year-old Jennifer Lawrence. The GOOP founder’s former BF Donovan Leitch popped the question to actress Libby Mintz, according to an Us Weekly source.
It’s been a minute since Gwyneth and Donovan dated — we’re talking pre-Brad Pitt here — but the two did make headlines more recently when they were seen sharing a kiss at a baseball game last fall. Donovan later insisted the kiss was totally platonic, telling the Mail that “sitting in the owner’s box in front of 30,000 people with two children right next to [them]” was not exactly the greatest location for a rendezvous between clandestine lovers.
Okay, point taken. And, considering he’s preparing to consciously couple with someone else, we’re gonna take Donovan’s word for it that things are between him and Gwynnie are firmly in the friendzone.
Things are less over, however, for Donovan and his wife Kirsty Hume, at least in the legal sense. Despite being amicably separated for some time, TMZ reports they’re still technically man and wife. Details, details!
