Chris Martin In Love With Alexa Chung?

Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin shared the news of their separation yesterday, rumors have been flying about why.  Rumors of adultery have been plaguing the couple, so much so that last October, Gwyneth had to deny that she was having an affair with Elle Macpherson's billionaire husband, Jeff Soffer.  And again as recently as last month, her rep denied allegations that Gwyneth was cheating with entertainment lawyer, Kevin Yorn.

But now, LaineyGossip is saying that it was actually Chris's extramarital affairs that have ended the marriage - because he fell in love.  

Supposedly, the two have shared an open marriage, with neither of them getting into anything serious.  But then, Chris got involved with Alexa Chung (a fashion It Girl who’s skinnier than Gwyneth is) and developed feelings for her beyond what Gwyneth ever expected.  

Chris and Alexa were seen at the Glastonbury Music Festival in June of 2013. They were seen wandering the festival site together, posing separately for photos with a fan who remarked on Twitter that they were "both so lovely." They were seen together multiple other times that weekend, including watching the Rolling Stones together.

Whatever the reason, it is sad that they split after almost 11 years together and two children.  Hopefully it won't get messy, for the kids' sake!
