According to Elle, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin appears to be spending his quarantine with his longterm girlfriend actress Dakota Johnson. The two were recently spotted taking a (socially distant) walk together with Johnson’s dog in Malibu.
Chris Martin started the Global Citizen home concert series at his piano at home on Instagram story. The success of his live stream performance inspired the “One World: Together At Home” concert, featuring participation from the world’s biggest celebrities and recording artists.
Martin & Johnson Temporarily Broke Up in 2019 & Martin’s Ex-Wife Gwyneth Paltrow Helped Them Get Back Together
While Martin and Johnson have been romantically linked since 2017, the relationship hasn’t always been smooth sailing. They broke up for a period of time in 2019, before ultimately reuniting.
In June 2019, a source told The Sun that “Chris and Dakota were very easygoing and always seemed really happy together. There was talk of engagement but now he says they have gone their separate ways, which has come as a real surprise to everyone.”
Us Magazine reports that Johnson’s ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, from whom he “consciously uncoupled” in 2014, had a role to play in getting the couple back together. A source told the outlet “Gwyneth is the one who pushed them to do it” (“it” meaning end their breakup and choose to continue the relationship).
Paltrow and Johnson have been spotted together on several occasions and have a known friendship, and Paltrow has even said “I adore her. She’s a fantastic woman.” The Sun reports that Martin and Johnson were invited on Paltrow’s honeymoon with her husband Brad Falchuk. Speaking of Dakota Johnson, Paltrow told Entertainment Tonight “I love her. I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her.”
On Johnson’s 30th birthday, Paltrow shared a black and white photo of her, which she captioned “Happy 30th birthday to this absolute gem.”
Martin & Johnson Keep Their Relationship Private, But Have Reportedly Discussed Marriage
Although they’ve been on and off for almost 3 years now, the famous couple has managed to keep their relationship relatively private.
According to E! News, when asked about her rumored relationship with Chris Martin back in 2017, Johnson responded “I’m not going to talk about it. But I am very happy.”
When the couple got together back in 2017, a source told Us Weekly “Chris is very young at heart so it makes sense for him to be with someone younger.” Another source agreed, adding “Chris is head over heels.” The outlet reported that in December 2017 when the relationship was still fairly new, they were talking about marriage.
According to Metro, Johnson directed Coldplay’s music video for their new song “Cry, Cry, Cry,” which came out on Valentine’s Day earlier this year.
