We’re going to be hearing about the downfall of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin for a long time it seems. Now, Chris is adamantly denying the rumor that’s linked him to a Saturday Night Live assistant, who’s going unidentified at the moment. The hookup allegedly occurred in 2011 and the New York Post is the outlet credited with initiating the gossip. After the couple decided to announce their “conscious uncoupling,” many people started chatting about their “cheating” pasts, perhaps why, now, Chris is being forced to defend himself.
As stated above, nobody is certain as to the identity of the woman with whom Chris supposedly had an affair, and the outlet also seems to be confused as to whether she actually worked for the show or was just a groupie there to follow Coldplay. A source told the NY Post: “He was openly flirting with her at one of the show’s after-parties.”
Well, one of Chris’s reps, Murray Chalmers, released a statement last night to The Mirror UK: “This is completely untrue, we totally deny it.”
Not much meat to that statement; however, I guess we’ll just have to take their word for it . . . . HA! In a perfect world, we’d love to believe the word of a celebrity’s PR handler. Unfortunately, the day we fully believe a statement from a celeb rep will be the day Kris Jenner stops thinking about dollah-dollah-bills (i.e. never).
I guess we’ll leave it up to you to decide: Did Chris Martin cheat with this random SNL girl? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below. We’d love to hear from you!
