They were hailed as being Hollywood’s hot new couple, but now Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin have split up after dating for a mere four months.
The pair started seeing each other in June, following the Coldplay singer’s ‘concious uncoupling’ from Gwyneth Paltrow, and JLaw’s split with Nicholas Hoult. But now it seems the duo have decided to go their separate ways.
The couple were notoriously private about their relationship – there is only one incredibly blurry picture of the two together – but they were said to be going strong since meeting at a Coldplay concert after party on July 1. One source revealed, “They were talking the whole time and being really flirty. There was a whole party of people wanting Chris’ attention, but his eyes were only on her.”
And although The Hunger Games star had been keeping her head down since being caught up in the celebrity nude photo scandal, she was seen supporting Chris when he performed with Kings of Leon at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this month. The 24-year-old also stepped out wearing the same red ‘love’ badge her now-ex usually sports.
The split comes after Chris was spotted grabbing dinner with estranged wife Gwyneth on Wednesday who reportedly still has “a lot of control” over the singer. In September, a source revealed that the goop founder had, “drawn up a rota to balance his time living life as a bachelor and seeing Jennifer with honouring their many family commitments.
“Gwyneth still has a lot of control over him, which isn’t exactly desirable to prospective girlfriends. The way things are at the moment, no sane person would want to be an accessory to their conscience uncoupling.”
