The relationship between Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most fascinating in all of Hollywood. It was their relationship’s demise that coined the term “conscious uncoupling” earlier this year, and it’s been one of the strangest occurrences in all of Hollywood. While most couples who split do say that they have the best interests of their children at heart and that they will co-parent so that their kids have the best of both worlds, they’re the couple who have taken co-parenting and separating to an entirely new level. In fact, it might be downright strange.
The two are at it again with their weird closeness following their separation earlier this year, following weeks of other odd behavior. During a gala in Los Angeles Wednesday evening, the Goop creator introduced the musical guests of the evening, including ex Chris Martin.
“This brilliant singer-songwriter has sold 8 million records and won every award imaginable, including father of the year, which he has won consecutively since 2004,” announced Paltrow to the crowd when introducing her ex and Coldplay. The actress was apparently a big deal at the gala as witnesses explained that she looked amazing in a black Tom Ford pantsuit, and was flocked by fawning men all night long. Even Sharon Stone had some praise to offer the star.
“We thank you for your inner and outer beauty, which you’ve demonstrated by the fact of how you get along with your ex-husband,” said the actress when she gave her own speech during the gala. It was a good night for Paltrow and apparently Martin, whose fans were shocked and excited to see the musician since no one knew they were there to play some of the band’s best music. All in all, it was an interesting night for the couple following months of interesting behavior between the two.
