Jennifer Lawrence reportedly dumped Chris Martin because of his super cozy friendship with Gwyneth Paltrow.
The 24-year-old actress, who recently split from the Coldplay frontman after four months of dating, felt he was a “little too close” for comfort with his estranged wife.
Lawrence also wasn’t into the constant media attention surrounding their relationship.
An insider said, “Everyone jumped the gun with this romance. It is hard for her to understand the feelings between Chris and Gwyneth.”
Chris has maintained a close relationship with Gwyneth for the sake of their daughter – Apple, 10, and son Moses, eight.
The couple announced their conscious uncoupling on Gwyneth’s lifestyle blog “Goop” in March after ten years of marriage.
A source said the cozy relationship between the exes made “Hunger Games” star Jennifer a bit uneasy.
The insider said, “She 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. It was an odd situation for her.
”It was kind of serious but also not really in a sense. It was really just [Jennifer] having fun and living in the moment, enjoying time with someone she likes, but [Chris and Gwyneth’s] close relationship got to her in the end and she felt like it wasn’t worth it.”
Others claim the British rocker was “too intense” for Lawrence.
A source stated, “Chris wanted to spend all his free time with Jen – there was a discrepancy between how they viewed their relationship, she’s so easy going and he’s quite intense. Jennifer said Chris is an all or nothing kind of guy, so she chose nothing. She broke up with him late last week. He was completely blindsided, he was really sad about it.”
Jennifer and Chris ended their romance amicably and friends haven’t ruled out a reconciliation in the future.
