It feels like it’s been weeks since we’ve heard anything about the Dorito-dust-covered Bermuda Triangle of Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence. The last I heard, J-Law and Chris were still kind of trying to make it work and Gwyneth may or may not have been drunkenly panicking about it because Goop really thought that she had successfully broken those two up. Maybe she’s still trying? E! News reported on Wednesday that Chris and Gwyneth reunited last weekend and that overall, their relationship is better than ever:
It’s no secret that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin may have had the most amicable split in Hollywood, most recently reuniting for some quality family time with their two kids over the weekend. And while their friendly outings have raised some speculation of a reconciliation, a source tells E! News that the two have simply “found something that works,” adding that we all should expect to see more of the consciously uncoupled pair.
“Their relationship is better than ever since they separated,” a source tells us of Oscar winner and the Coldplay musician, who announced their separation in March. “They have found something that works really well for them and their children.”
The parents of Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, have been able to maintain a mutual level of respect since calling it quits and have even supported each other in their subsequent relationships (Martin was most recently linked to Jennifer Lawrence, although the two broke up last month, while Paltrow has been seen out on numerous occasions with Glee co-creator Brad Falchuck).
“They are best friends and there is a ton of love and respect between them,” the source explains of the Hollywood duo. “Because they have made a commitment to put their kids first and keep the family unit together as much as possible, the pressure is off the marriage and trying to figure out how they work as a couple. Now they spend a lot of time together as a family, but they also have their own lives with no questions asked.”
Martin and Paltrow have been recently seen spending time together in both Dallas and NYC and, in order to keep things consistent for their children, they even have neighboring homes in Malibu, Calif.
“They spend a lot of time coordinating their schedules so that one of them is with the kids at all times,” the insider reveals. “If Gwyneth has business in London, she makes every effort to schedule it when Chris can be with the kids and vice versa. They also do a lot of family stuff together and support each other in their careers.”
Clearly, as fans of the former couple have witnessed, the pair’s children will always come first.
“On weekends if one of them has the kids and the other doesn’t have plans, they will meet up and do something altogether,” the source reveals, adding, “They truly love one another and think the world of each other, they just aren’t a couple. They will spend the holidays together and make sure the kids know they are always going to be a family.”

My opinion: Gwyneth is still wary of Jennifer Lawrence in particular and any woman Chris wants to date in general. While Gwyneth might enjoy a quiet, elite relationship with Brad Falchuck (who is still married, last I heard, much like Gwyneth is still married), she still doesn’t want Chris to have real, public relationships with other women. Especially younger Oscar-winning carb-eaters. But I guess slow-clap for Gwyneth and Chris for figuring out how to have some kind of amazing separation where they spend a lot of time together and prioritize their children.
