Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin really mean it when they say “amicable”.
After a split that had the tabloids running low on ink, the couple reassured everyone that they are still buddies. In fact, the “insider reports” coming out of the Chris Martin/Jennifer Lawrence split say that Lawrence left him because of how close he still is with Gwyneth
“She broke it off with Chris,” a source told People. “She was tired of the spotlight on their relationship and she also thought that Chris and Gwyneth were a little too close for comfort. It was an odd situation for her.”
When you’re still such good buds with your ex, especially if that ex is famous, it’s nice to be able to ring them up for little favors. Favors like introducing you on stage to a crowd of people at a charity event.
Gwyneth Paltrow surprised the crowd at the Inspiration Gala for the AIDS charity amfAR in Los Angeles this past week. She walked out on stage and pitched Martin and bandmate Johnn Buckland to a celebrity-studded crowd as they launched into an unannounced musical performance.
“This brilliant singer-songwriter has sold 8 million records, has won every single award that there is to be won, especially Father of the Year, which he has won consecutively since 2004,” Paltrow said. “I am speaking of Chris Martin and the incredibly talented Jonny Buckland, who together make up one-half of the legendary band Coldplay.”
Father of the Year. Not what many women would call their exes.
In attendance at the event were Justin Timberlake, January Jones, Rihanna, Kelly Osbourne, and more.
Martin joked around with the audience, targeting Timberlake with one jab,
“This is Justin Timberlake, and I am Justin Bieber,” he said, referring to himself and Buckland, “and together we are Bieber & Timberlake.”
