Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are famous for their friendly divorce, but lots of people have doubts about the fact that they continue being close to each other while being platonic. They recently reunited to celebrate their daughter’s birthday, and this coming together is already creating a buzz around them.
“They vowed to make their divorce a ‘conscious uncoupling’ for the sake of their two children,” reports Daily Mail. “And two years down the road Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have been as good as their word. On Sunday, the actress and her Coldplay frontman ex were together again at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, where daughter Apple celebrated her 12th birthday.”
The actress didn’t forget to Instagram about it on her account.
So that the media doesn’t misinterpret her post, she made sure to emphasize that this day was all about her daughter Apple turning 12. To do so, she posted another picture of all of Apple’s friends (aka daughters of other famous people, like Beyonce) on the account.
While the world keeps on doubting whether this “conscious uncoupling” is completely platonic, Chris Martin has been doing a good job of keeping himself romantically busy to swat away all those rumors.
Right before he reunited with his ex-wife to celebrate their daughter’s birthday, he was seen strolling with his new love Heather Graham.
“Chris Martin enjoyed a barefoot beach stroll with actress Heather Graham in Malibu,” reports Daily Mail. “It is not known how the 39-year-old Coldplay lead singer and the 46-year-old Flaked actress know each other, but they seemed to get on well. Not seen was his reported girlfriend Annabelle Wallis, 31, whom he began dating last summer following his break-up from Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence.”
He also recently confessed that he had a hard time recovering from his breakup with Gwyneth Paltrow.
“I still wake up down a lot of days. But now I feel like I’ve been given the tools to turn it around,” he said to the Sunday Times last month. “You can come at it very aggressively and blame and blame. Or you can put yourself in the garage, so to speak. Take yourself apart and clean off the bits. Reassemble.”
In fact, he called that period of his life “a year of depression.”
Sounds like the Coldplay singer is a sensitive soul deep down.
Seeing the track record of Chris’ girlfriends since his divorce, the public isn’t sure if Heather Graham will last very long. In his previous relationships with Jennifer Lawrence and Annabelle Wallis, he had difficulties balancing his work, family, and romance, which means there might not be an exception for the new blonde actress.
But Heather and Chris have been going on a lot of beach walks, which means that he is making an effort to spend unstructured time with her.
“The Coldplay frontman and the actress were all smiles as they chatted while walking up and down the sandy shore of Paradise Cove — with Martin rocking a bright blue sweatshirt and black sweatpants and Graham donning a flowy, low-cut sundress and wide-brimmed hat,” reports Entertainment Tonight.
No matter how many different women he dates, it looks like the “depression” that Chris has to overcome still remains.
“We were all worried about him—the band, his family,” Phil Harvey, a close collaborator with Coldplay said according to Vanity Fair. “When someone’s really, really low and on their own a lot, as a friend, your mind goes to the worst-case scenario… That period didn’t last forever, but there was a time when we were all regularly checking in on him, just trying to make sure he wasn’t on his own.”
