Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have been unofficially divorced for several months now, but that hasn’t stopped them from continuing their unorthodox relationship situation, just ask Jennifer Lawrence. Jennifer and Chris shared a romantic dinner Dec. 30 (see photo) proving that the weird love triangle is still on. Unsuspecting Jennifer Lawrence didn’t realize that Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow were still hooking up when she starting dating the rocker. JLaw found out the hard way that Gwyneth will always consider Chris her husband!
Even though Chris and Gwyneth technically moved on to other boyfriends and girlfriends, they’ve stayed in touch and kept up an unusually close relationship. Considering that Chris Martin used to cringe in public whenever he was photographed with Gwyneth, this change in attitude post-divorce has been weird and shocking. Running away from the paparazzi when he was married to Gwyneth, but letting her tousle his hair in full view of cameras after the divorce? Perhaps an open marriage works better for some couples than others, and it seems to be suiting Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin pretty well.
In fact, perhaps it’s suiting them so well that Gwyneth is having second thoughts about the divorce and separation. In the January 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine, Gwyneth revealed that she has second thoughts about the divorce all the time, explaining, “Of course, there are times when I think it would have been better if we had stayed married, which is always what your children want. But we have been able to solidify this friendship, so that we’re really close.”
‘Solidify this friendship’, a.k.a. date other people, but hook up with each other on occasion. However, it’s really starting to look as though Gwyneth is having second thoughts about the divorce, especially since there are rumors that she purposefully sabotaged Chris Martin’s relationship with Jennifer Lawrence so that he would stay single. If that’s the case, then Chris’ girlfriends better watch out – what Gwyneth wants, Gwyneth usually gets.
In all honesty, I don’t think that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are ever going to get back together in the official sense of the word. But hooking up and staying friends seems to suit both of them, even if Gwyneth continues pining for more. What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
