It’s been six months since it began, but the “conscious uncoupling” of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just keeps getting weirder.

Yes, even though Martin is dating Jennifer Lawrence now, he still remains freakishly close with Paltrow.

So close, in fact, that he threw his ex a birthday cocktail party last week and invited all of her famous friends!

Jennifer Lawrence at Her Final X-Men Premiere

Celebrating your estranged wife’s birthday party with her all her BFFs and your new girlfriend might sound like a nightmare, but that’s only because peasants like you and me just aren’t as enlightened as the Chris and Gwinnie.

Not only did they manage to spend the evening drinking under the same roof without the cops being called, Martin and Paltrow reportedly ignored the other guests in order to hang out with another!

 

“Gwyneth and Chris were very friendly with one another,” said one attendee. “It was like they’re still best friends.”

In other GOOP news, Paltrow approves of Jennifer Lawrence so much that she invited J-Law to her home to personally stamp her with a “seal of approval.”

Hopefully Jen showed up with a bulletproof vest and a cyanide capsule under her tongue in case of torture:

“Gwyneth suggested a friendly lunch between her and Jennifer,” says a source close to Paltrow. “They met at her Brentwood home and drank tea and ate homemade scones while chatting in the garden.”

“Gwyn broke the ice by telling Jen she’s happy Chris wound up with such a smart, beautiful woman.”

Sounds like a trap to us. Of course they ate homemade scones! We’re sure somewhere Gwyneth is cackling maniacally as she waits for the time-release, organic, artisanal rat poison to take effect.
