Earlier this week, we learned that Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin broke up after four months of dating.

Initially, it was reported that Lawrence was the one to end things and Martin was completely blindsided by the news.

No cause for the split was given, but it was widely assumed that video of Martin on a dinner date with Gwyneth Paltrow had prompted Lawrence to call it quits.

“Gwyneth always pressured Chris to spend more time with [his children] Apple and Moses. The kids would constantly call Chris when he was with Jennifer and whatever he was doing would have to come to a standstill.”

Ah, so Gwinnie picked up on the fact that J-Law wasn’t crazy about the idea of having two ridiculously-named stepkids at the age of 24, so she pressured Chris to spend more time with his children than ever!

Gwyneth is good. Except when she’s flirting with the president, then she’s just so, so bad and embarrassing.

Anyway, Paltrow is clearly some kind of evil genius if she got Martin to give up all this:
