We love a civil split.
Yesterday morning, the sad news broke that the most random romance in showbiz had ended just as abruptly as it began with Jennifer Lawrence reportedly dumping Coldplay’s Chris Martin after four blissful months together.
Chris’s close relationship with his ex-wife, and mother of his two children, Gwyneth Paltrow was immediately rumoured to be the reason behind the break up, but thankfully that does not appear to be the case.
A source had a chat with E! News and spilled: “It wasn’t dramatic. Things just didn’t work out. There are no hard feelings between them.”
According to a source who had a good ol’ natter with People magazine, it was the 24-year-old Hunger games actress who did the dumping and considering the couple were spotted together less than a week ago, it’s all appeared to be very fresh.
However, this new insider that E! have unearthed tells a very different story, claiming that they broke up a couple of WEEKS ago due to their jam-packed schedules.
Ah yes, that typical showbiz split excuse of being “too busy to date”, classic.
Jen started dating the 37-year-old Coldplay frontman back in June, but the duo kept their relationship private until August, and even then they opted to keep their romance relatively low-key.
The ‘Fix You’ singer provided Jennifer with a no-doubt welcome shoulder to cry on amidst the #CelebGate drama, which saw dozens of half naked and fully nude images of the actress be leaked onto the internet in the biggest hacking scandal in celebrity history.
And although Chris didn’t have quite the same level of drama going on, Jen was still on hand to support her beau by cheering him on backstage at a variety of gigs and festivals, including Chris’s performance with Kings Of Leon at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this month.
Despite the fact that their ker-azy schedules are apparently keeping the lovebirds from being together, it’s unfortunate that the split revelation comes just weeks after Jen bit the bullet and introduced her much older boyfriend to her parents.
Which, by the sound of things, wasn’t much before the break up allegedly happened.
The plot thickens.
The actress flew her mum over to Los Angeles so that the two could meet, and Chris apparently got mama Lawrence’s seal of approval, with Jen’s grandparents going so far as to suggest that the British singer would be joining them for Christmas.
Jennifer’s grandmother, Carolyn Kloch, told The Sun: “Jennifer’s mum flew to Los Angeles to meet Chris. We will have to get another chair for the dinner table at Christmas!
“The family is getting so big we might have to split up for gatherings.”
In fact, it all sounded so serious, we swear that we were *this* close to buying a hat.
Sigh, maybe next time.
