That was fast! Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin’s relationship has fizzled out after just four months, and no one is less surprised than his ex, Gwyneth Paltrow. RadarOnline.com has learned that she’s telling friends she knew the relationship was doomed from the start!
News of the Lawrence - Martin split broke on Monday, but according to a source, "Gwyneth wasn't surprised by it. She never thought the relationship was going to last because of their age difference. Jen is 24 and Chris is 37. Plus, Jen complained to Chris that she felt like the third wheel in their relationship because of all the time he spent with his kids."
Meanwhile, "Gwyneth always pressured Chris to spend more time with Apple and Moses,” the source revealed. "The kids would constantly call Chris when he was with Jennifer, and whatever they were doing would have to come to a standstill. There was always the expectation from Gwyneth that Chris should spend even more time with the kids."
Martin and Lawrence began seeing each other in late June after she and her X-Men co-star, Nicholas Hoult, ended their long-term relationship. Martin and estranged wife Paltrow “consciously uncoupled” in March after 10 years of marriage.
Lawrence and Martin kept their relationship quiet for a long time, even after they were photographed together backstage at one of the singer’s concerts.
But all hope is not lost.
According to the source, "Even though Gywneth didn't take Chris' relationship with Jen seriously, there is a chance they could get back together. Jen is young and impulsive, and Chris still has very strong feelings for her."
A request for comment from Paltrow's rep wasn't immediately returned.
