Chris Martin Had Affair With 'SNL' Assistant While Still Together With Gwyneth Paltrow: Report

Chris Martin had an affair with a Saturday Night Live assistant while he was still with Gwyneth Paltrow, the New York Post is reporting.

Martin appeared on the show in 2011 and according to the Post his romance with the woman was an open secret.

“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,” a source told the Post.

As Radar previously reported, though, the couple was said to have an “open” relationship. “If Chris was playing around Gwyneth didn’t care,” a source told People.
