Some People Are Saying Gwyneth Paltrow Was the Reason Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin Split

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin — Martin Lawrence, as they were referred to by some — were one of the most talked-about couples of 2014, and understandably so. Unfortunately, their love was not destined to last, and the couple split earlier this week.

What caused their breakup? Busy schedules? Constant bickering? Martin telling Lawrence that Silver Linings Playbook was “just OK”? Or was it, as some may have already suspected, Martin’s ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow?

A source tells People that Lawrence was not totally on board with close relationship still had by Martin and Paltrow.

“It is hard for her to understand the feelings between Chris and Gwyneth,” the source says.

A different source, also speaking with People, says that “[Lawrence] broke it off with Chris… She was tired of the spotlight on their relationship and she also thought that Chris and Gwyneth were a little too close for comfort.” Too close for comfort? They have children together! “It was an odd situation for her,” the source added of Lawrence.

Reports that Paltrow had been meddling in their relationship from the start were rampant during their courtship, and now there’s this. Do you think Paltrow had a hand in their demise, or does it just make for a juicier story?
