Chris Martin Lunches With Gwyneth Paltrow Ahead Of Dinner Date With Rihanna

Jun 9, 2014 09:55 AM


Busy man!

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced they were splitting in April, but the former couple was spotted lunching together at a farm in Malibu over the weekend. Are they considering consciously re-coupling?

The pair sat close as the actress showed the Coldplay front man something on her iPhone, and it certainly doesn't look like there's an animosity between the onetime lovebirds!

We bet the Goop queen wouldn't have been as friendly if she knew her estranged husband was planning to go out to dinner with Rihanna last night, though!

The singers tucked in for a cozy Italian meal at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, and although they could have been discussing upcoming projects and collaborations, they could have also been testing the waters for romance!

Rihanna had a most unlikely dinner date last night ... with Gwyneth Paltrow's estranged hubby, Chris Martin!

The consciously-uncoupled Coldplay frontman and the sexy pop star arrived, separately, around 9pm and stayed for 2 hours! And catch this ... X17 can report exclusively, that Gwyneth had just headed to LAX for a flight to London before Chris jumped in his Jeep, headed for dinner with Rihanna at her favorite spot, Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.

Our photographer tells us the two were quite cozy during dinner: "They were leaning in to each other, laughing and being flirty. Rihanna kept pushing her hair out of her face and Chris appeared to be almost whispering in her ear."

The pair had a corner table to the Italian hotspot -- Rihanna's a regular at the restaurant. She toned down her usual over-the-top fashion and opted for a black sweater with ruffled sleeves and black pants with heels. Chris wore a tee-shirt and jeans.

Our shooter commented, "They looked cute together - maybe they're working on a new project; maybe they're trying to make certain people [Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow] jealous or maybe they're actually dating. I was surprised to see them together!"

Chris and Rihanna have collaborated before on the track "Princess of China," in 2012, for Coldplay's fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto. They performed the single that year at the Grammy's. Click through to see that music video -- and check out our video from last night ...

Chris Martin Still Believes In Love After Splitting From Gwyneth Paltrow

Jun 3, 2014 07:30 AM


Well, he is wearing a pin with the word love on it, so we want to believe this is true!

On Monday Chris Martin stopped by a bookstore in Brentwood, and the Coldplay singer was in a great mood when he returned to his car. It appears as though he may have been grabbing some summer reading material for his kids -- we doubt he stocked up on young adult nature books for his own personal library. But hey, you never know!

And speaking of things we don't know about, we're still puzzled as to what's going on with Chris and estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow. Not only did they get dinner together a month ago, but Chris has attended two different Goop events over the last two weeks. No one ever said conscious uncoupling was a permanent thing, right? And as of right now, neither party has filed for divorce...

Chris Martin Keeps Wearing His Heart On His Sleeve

May 30, 2014 12:11 PM



Amid rumors he's been dating other people, Chris Martin wore a shirt with a "Love" pin on it while running some errands on Thursday. When we look through our plethora of pics of the singer, we've realized that the 37-year-old Brit has been wearing this pin, on every single outfit we've spotted him in for weeks!

Is this a secret message to estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow? We certainly think so! The "Viva La Vida" started wearing the pin back in March, which is when the duo announced they would be "consciously uncoupling."

Despite his crumbling relationship, the "Magic" singer hasn't let anything come between him and his children. After playing in the UK, the Coldplay frontman came back to LA from London and had a little quality time with Apple and Moses in Brentwood, Calif. on Thursday.

Of course -- he couldn't help but wear his heart on his sleeve -- or his chest rather.

Despite announcing the shocking split on Gwynnie's site Goop back in March, it looks like Chris may want to reconcile.

"Gwyneth and Chris always vowed to stay friends for their children when they split, but they have been getting on better than ever in the last few weeks. After they announced they were splitting up, all the pressure was off and Chris has really enjoyed spending time with Gwyneth," an insider told the British magazine Grazia.

"He is still heartbroken and he has realized just how much he misses her and what he stands to lose if the divorce goes ahead."

All you really do need is love -- or at least a button that says so!

Chris Martin Is Sexy And Solo At The Airport

Chris Martin Coldplay LAX Gwyneth Paltrow

It's kinda funny how much more attractive we find Chris Martin now that he's no longer with Gwyneth Paltrow ... or is he?

On Thursday afternoon the Coldplay singer arrived at Los Angeles International Airport, and we're just not sure whether the estranged spouses are still consciously uncoupled. Not only did they get dinner together a month ago, but he was somehow coerced into attending two of her Goop events over the last two weeks. And let's not forget about that Vespa ride...

Neither Chris nor Gwynnie have commented on whether they're getting back together, but if they're hanging out this much, that has to mean something, right? And have you listened to the lyrics in "Magic"? We practically melted the first time we heard it, so we gotta wonder what kind of effect it had on Gwyn...

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin Take Their Kids For A Spin On Matching Vespas

May 23, 2014 09:20 AM

Talk about the friendliest split ever!

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin took their kids Apple and Moses for a ride around Brentwood on their matching Vespas yesterday, and it certainly seems like these two are either playing nice for the sake of their family or contemplating a reconciliation!

The pair have done a lot of hanging out since announcing their split in March, and the Coldplay front man has played coy when asked about their relationship and the possibility of them getting back together.

Something tells us this isn't the end of their love story...

Chris Martin Says He "Doesn't Want To Talk" About Getting Back Together With Gwyneth Paltrow

May 23, 2014 08:05 AM

Gwynnie is making a big mistake letting him go!

Chris Martin caught a flight out of LAX last night, and the singer was swarmed by photographers as he made his way through the terminal.

When our photographer asked the Coldplay front man about the possibility of a reconciliation with estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow, he was as nice as can be while trying to be honest.

"I'm sure you're a very nice person, but I don't want to talk to you about it," he told X17.

That doesn't sound like a no to us!

The British singer and his actress spouse have been spending a lot of time together since they announced they were "consciously uncoupling", so we have to wonder if they're having second thoughts about splitting!

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO - Chris Martin Is Just As Confused As We Are About His Conscious Uncoupling

May 21, 2014 12:00 PM

What is going on with Chris and Gwyneth?

Chris Martin got more than the he bargained for when the dirty boy (and we mean that literally because he is wearing a rather soiled sweatshirt) stopped by his local gas station on Tuesday night. Upon exiting the convenience store, our cameraman asked about the Coldplay front man about why he was hanging out with his estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow on several occasions in the past week.

"We've gotta hang out," explained the 37-year-old Brit.

In response, our photog wished the singer a congratulations -- and Chris, not surprisingly, seemed a little confused by the well wishes. And then that's when things got a lil' awkward ...

Looks like we're all a little perplexed about what's going on with this consciously uncoupled twosome who can't stop spending time together!

Check out the video for the funny interaction!
