Jennifer Lawrence does not appear broken up over the break up with her former boyfriend Chris Martin. She was recently seen in Santa Monica, California looking happy and relaxed. Jennifer and Chris only dated four months and both had recently split from another relationship. Reports state the couple separated because Chris could not get over his ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow.
Chris and Jennifer began dating in late June and appeared to share an exciting connection. The Hunger Games star had recently split up with Nicholas Hoult, after ending a three-year relationship while Chris was recovering from his “conscious uncoupling” with Gwyneth after 10 years of marriage. Jennifer and Chris still like each other but their schedules are insane and the 13 year age difference may have played a part as well.
Sources close to the couple said Gwyneth is the reason the couple dissolved their romantic relationship. Chris was not yet over his ex-wife and Jennifer, although she respects the Coldplay singer, refused to keep competing. Reportedly, Gwyneth still has a great deal of control over her ex-husband and Jennifer does not feel the need to play second fiddle to anyone and would rather have a man of her own.
Neither party has commented on the break up but it has been stated Jennifer was the deciding factor in the split and her decision was a surprise to Chris. One source stated the couple’s demise was not a result of the dinner date Chris had with his ex as many have rumored. Jennifer understood the need for Chris to stay connected to Gwyneth for the sake of their children.
There are a few speculations surrounding the cause of the split but none have been confirmed. In an issue of Vanity Fair the actress discussed what she prefers in a partner. She wants someone who is comfortable with her, likes her taste in reality TV more specifically the Housewives franchise, and ultimately someone who is authentic. J-Law just wants a peaceful and laid back relationship.
While it does not seem the “rock star” fits the mode described, the Oscar-Winning actress spent the last four months being very supportive of his career. Jennifer was often seen at a Coldplay concert and was recently photographed backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The couple only lasted four months so they were still in the honeymoon phase of the relationship and appeared to be having a blast.
Regardless of a couple’s reason for separating there are many challenges that can affect both parties. If the break up is not handled properly and events leading towards the separation are not processed thoroughly, all roads will eventually lead to a repeat action. When a split occurs there are many questions and expectations that need to be dissected before entering another relationship. As challenges are honestly confronted along the journey of healing people will begin to see a pattern for both success and failure. Every discussion and disagreement leaves clues of what not to do and what works.
The American Hustle actress does not appear to be broken up over the break up with her former boyfriend Chris Martin. A photographer caught her hanging out in Santa Monica, California looking happy and relaxed. When questioned about the relationship split, Jennifer just chuckled. There is life after a loss and it seems Jennifer Lawrence understands and is ready to move on.
