Very soon after the conscious uncoupling of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin was completed, the unexpected pairing that the Internet dubbed “Martin-Lawrence” began.
Yes, Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence dated. Or they just hooked up. It depends on who you ask, but either way it’s over. Again.
Us Weekly is reporting that Martin and Lawrence have broken up, citing the usual “hectic schedule” excuse that brings an end to roughly 120% of Hollywood relationships.
“Jen has been working nonstop and they hardly saw each other,” a source tells Us Weekly.
Part of the problem is that “working” meant shooting X-Men: Apocalypse with ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.
Lawrence and Hoult broke up last summer after three years of dating. They first met when they co-starred in X-Men: First Class in 2011.
Sources say Lawrence and Hoult aren’t “back together,” exactly, but they may have gotten a little too close for Martin’s taste in recent weeks.
For his part, Chris has been spending a lot of time with pop star Kylie Minogue, though reps for both singers deny that they’re dating.
Of course, the real tragedy in all of this is that Paltrow’s planned couples’ vacation with Martin and Lawrence will never come to pass. That thing was a romantic cringe-comedy just waiting to happen.
