Chris Martin

ARE WE JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS ABOUT CHRIS MARTIN AND DAKOTA JOHNSON?

Real estate can be deceiving in more ways than one. Recent headlines about Chris Martin, 43, and Dakota Johnson, 31, buying a Malibu house together are jumping the gun. It seems Chris and Dakota, who have been dating for three years, just moved into a posh Malibu home that was recently sold for 12.5 million. The house looks delightful – it’s 5338 sq ft and a short walk to the beach and shops. Observers are ASSUMING that Chris and Dakota bought it together in preparation for marriage. No one has seen any purchase documentation. Chris could have bought the house for himself (he has two kids with his ex, Gwyneth Paltrow) OR the unidentified buyer could have leased it to Chris. But everyone wants to see them engaged. Dakota already has her own mid-century modern house in LA that she loves, and it’s not for sale. Whatever is happening, they are a cute couple, engaged or not. Above, Chris and Dakota were in Aspen with his daughter Apple, who looks a lot like her mom…

CHRIS MARTIN UNDERCOVER

Celebrities love winter in Aspen, partly because they can walk around all bundled up for the cold, and are rarely recognized. Coldplay singer Chris Martin took his daughter Apple (her mom is Gwyneth Paltrow) and his girlfriend Dakota Johnson shopping for Christmas, and they were pretty much ignored by other shoppers. Apple is fifteen and typically self-conscious – she gets upset when Gwyneth posts pictures of her without asking. Remember when Apple was born and her unusual name created a sensation? Now it seems perfectly normal! Lucky girl inherited the best traits from both parents…

TEMPERATURES RISING IN MALIBU: CHRIS MARTIN AND KATE HUDSON

For a quiet, rather soft spoken guy, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, 38, really gets around. Malibu was sizzling today and he and Kate Hudson, 35, might have been sizzling also. It was a family day with two sets of kids and assorted nannies and friends. Chris wore a wetsuit while surfing and Kate tanned in her bikini. They make kind of a cute couple – he has a weakness for blondes and she has a weakness for musicians.

CHRIS MARTIN AND JENNIFER LAWRENCE: LET THEM EAT CAKE

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin decided to go public with their resumed relationship by having dinner together at Madeo. Our spy noted that they looked very playful and friendly during the meal. After they ate, the waiter brought the dessert tray with a flourish. Chris was about to say no thanks, but Jennifer eyed the luscious pastries and insisted “We HAVE to pick one to share!” Martin is accustomed to his estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow FORBIDDING dessert, but he gamely selected a slice of millefiori multi layer Italian cake. And he seemed to enjoy every bite as much as Jennifer did. Yum.

Chris Martin bought that house in Brentwood across the street from his estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow just in time. He already hosted her birthday party at his home this week and on Thursday he just has to walk across the street to shake hands with President Obama. Gwyneth is hosting Obama for a Democratic fundraiser at her house on that day, (Guests donate from $1000 to $32,400 to attend.) The traffic on the West side will be horrendous as it always is with a presidential visit, but Chris will have no problem with transportation.

CHRIS MARTIN HAD SOME PRECIOUS CARGO ON HIS PRIVATE JET

Chris Martin’s budding romance with Jennifer Lawrence heated up today when they arrived in Los Angeles in a private jet together. They came from Las Vegas where Chris performed at the iHeart Radio Festival and seemed to be singing directly to her, in the audience. They were seen looking very friendly, disembarking at Van Nuys airport. Jennifer, 24, and Chris, 37, have been cozying up in both New York and Los Angeles of late, but avoid being photographed together. According to a friend, Jennifer was mesmerized when she saw Coldplay perform in the UK in June, and now she’s dating her crush!

GWYNETH PALTROW DIDN’T THINK CHEATING WAS A BIG DEAL

When you stop and think about it, the reasons for the Gwyneth Paltrow/Chris Martin split become clearer. First of all, Gwyneth always had the upper hand- in a rare interview a few years back, Chris admitted that Gwyneth was his first and only romantic partner and modestly added that he felt like a loser who won the lottery when he married the Oscar winner. Gwyneth advised her Goop readers to “Have a relaxed attitude about cheating.” And of course Vanity Fair was investigating rumors of Gwyneth behaving like she had an “open marriage.” Looks like their cancelled story was on the right track. We don’t think Chris cheated. But if Gwyneth could cheat on her then fiancée Brad Pitt- it wouldn’t be such a big deal to her. (Above, Gwyneth filming Mortdecai with Johnny Depp)

GWYNETH PALTROW’S LIFE ISN’T PERFECT, AFTER ALL

On paper, Gwyneth Paltrow seems like the perfect wife- she’s beautiful and earns a lot of money acting, but still has time to cook and bake and take care of her kids. And maintain a lifestyle website! So what happened? Chris Martin has been off on his own for the past year, busy with music and concerts while Gwyneth filmed movies. (She recently finished Mortdecai with Johnny Depp) The separation was referenced when Gwyneth announced on her site Goop that after 14 years, she and Chris were making a “conscious uncoupling” after extensive consideration. They have two children, Apple, 10, and Moses, 8. Gwyneth and Chris DID have their differences – we remember one day Chris was out with the kids alone and he made a point of treating them to chips and sweets that their mother frowned upon.

GWYNETH PALTROW: I’VE GOT A SECRET

Vanity Fair sure knows how to drum up business. The magazine has always fawned over celebrities in the past but they’ve changed their policy and decided to do more “investigative” reporting. In other words, the celebrity stories won’t be so flattering. That’s why former cover girl Gwyneth Paltrow blanched when she learned they were researching a story about HER and advised her friends to clam up. (Her enemies will have more interesting things to say about her anyway.) She may be worried because rumors about an “open marriage” circulated not long ago. And apparently VF has been digging up info on a fling Gwyneth might have had with her attractive billionaire friend Jeff Soffer. It’s not far-fetched. Gwyneth cheated on Brad Pitt when they were engaged. We just wonder if Chris Martin knows he has an allegedly “open marriage!”

WHILE GWYNETH STEAMS HER KALE, HUBBY CHRIS CHOMPS ON POTATO CHIPS

Seems like Gwyneth Paltrow is always telling us how to eat with her ever-changing diet ideas. (How SHE became an expert on healthy eating remains a mystery.) We can only imagine how she tortures her family with her food extremes. This month she’s down on carbs and says she won’t feed them to her children – Moses, 6, and Apple, 8, even if they’re very hungry. Lucky for them they have a dad who’s not so rigid. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was photographed surreptitiously treating the kids to chocolate and potato chips while walking in a London park. This story reminds us of the time Jennifer Aniston was married to Brad Pitt. She had fancy dietetic meals delivered to their house so they could both stay in shape. Brad wasn’t satisfied with spinach and flax seeds, however, and he sneaked out between meals for a snack at In-N-Out Burger.
