Apparently, flirting began at a party following a Coldplay concert in July of this year. Martin had been single since March when he split up with his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow after being married for ten years. Rumours began to circulate in various US media outlets before recently appearing in UK newspapers.

In stark contrast to the Lawrence rumours, Martin also apparently still finding time to spend with his ex-wife, with whom he has two children. The couple are reported to still live together despite their split due to still being good friends. The family of Martin, 37, Platrow, 41, and children Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, were seen on holiday in East Hampton last month. Coldplay recently released their sixth studio album in May 2014 with no tours planned until the Iheartradio festival in Las Vegas in September.

They first began their relationship in 2011 while filming X-Men: First Class, but the couple split in 2013. After six months, they got back together after filming X-Men: Days of Future Past before finally calling it quits this year.
