Conscious Coupling? Chris Martin Spotted with Rumoured New Flame Again

Shortly after Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced their ‘conscious uncoupling’ in March, rumours began to swirl about other love interests for the Coldplay frontman and his movie star ex.

One of the names bandied about was Alexa Chung, TV presenter and darling of the fashion world. Alexa, 30, and Chris, 37, were spotted together mere days after the announcement that the singer and his wife of ten years were to separate.

Now, a source has spoken to Heat magazine about seeing the pair on another cosy date. Chris and Alexa were seen in ‘secret' Elsa, a speakeasy hidden behind a vintage clothes shop in Manhattan’s Lower East Side last Tuesday.

The source told the magazine:

“When I arrived at about 9.15pm, they were tucked away in in dark corner of the back room of the bar.

"He didn't care that he was being recognised. But Alexa seemed more reluctant to introduce herself. She didn't really want to talk.

“Chris and Alexa seemed to know each other really well. They were both in a great mood, and even asked us to watch their bags when they went out for a cigarette.”

The pair are said to have become close since they first met at last year’s Glastonbury festival.
