Haunted By the Past:
Chris Martin Had an
Affair with SNL
Assistant Prior to
Splitting from Gwyneth
It seems like Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t the only one doing the cheating in her relationship with Chris Martin.
A new report claims the 37-year-old Coldplay frontman had an affair with an assistant after appearing on Saturday Night Live—back in November 2011! But the NBC staff isn’t quite sure if she was positively an assistant or a random girl.
“He had an affair with a woman who was backstage and was part of an entourage. Everyone was talking about it because he was openly flirting with her at one of the show after-parties,” an NBC source tells Page Six.
News of this affair comes days after a picture resurfaced of Gwyneth, 41, kissing ex-boyfriend Donovan Leitch six months before the split.
Chris Martin appeared on the Weekend Update segment during SNL's Nov. 12 2011 episode.
If the couple actually did have a rumored “open” relationship, all of these affairs – Martin and Kate Bosworth in 2009 and Gwyn and billionaire Jeff Soffer in 2008 – would make sense.
After 10 years together, the couple called it quits with a blog post on Paltrow’s lifestyle site, Goop.
“We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner,” part of the statement read.
