Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin have called things off after four months of dating. It is said that the actress was the one who initiated the break up because of their busy schedules. The two were very private about their relationship, and they were photographed together only once throughout the entire time they dated.
However, Hollywood Life alleged that Martin's relationship with his ex-wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, had something to do with the split.
“Chris is clearly not over Gwyneth and his main priority is his kids. Jennifer really respects him, but she wants a man of her own,” a source for the magazine said. “And Chris has been spending lots of time with Gwyneth and their kids lately. It was just a bit too much for Jen. She doesn’t want to be second to anyone.”
Martin and Paltrow were married for 10 years before separating in March of this year. They have two children: Apple, 10, and Bruce, 8. The two infamously called their separation “conscious uncoupling” in a joint statement they released in Paltrow's lifestyle website Goop.
Martin started dating Lawrence soon after the separation. Paltrow has since been linked to “American Horror Story” and “Glee” producer Brad Falchuk. The actress notably guest-starred in a few episodes of “Glee” prior to dating Falchuk.
Though Martin and Paltrow have been seeing other people, the two are said to follow a strict schedule to make sure Martin spends plenty of time with Paltrow and their children.
The same source said that Gwyneth still ahs control over Martin.
Lawrence has been spotted looking carefree and seemingly unaffected since the split. She dated British actor Nicholas Hoult for three years before calling it quits earlier this year.
In a recent issue of Vanity Fair, the actress spoke up against photo hacking and talked about her ideal partner.
“I would just rather have somebody that has the same taste in reality TV,” Lawrence said. “[I want someone who] isn’t afraid to fart in front of me [rather] than to have big, passionate love."
