Los Angeles - British rocker Chris Martin is coupling with American actress Jennifer Lawrence, if the latest gossip is to be believed.
The Coldplay frontman and the American actress have been "spending quality time together" since late June after she split with her X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult, E! reported last Friday, citing multiple sources.
Heat magazine last month said the rocker was spotted flirting for two hours with Lawrence, 24, at a party after Coldplay's Royal Albert Hall concert in London. Its source was an anonymous "spy".
Martin, 37, and his actress wife Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, last March announced their separation in a statement titled "Conscious uncoupling".
Some in the media have quickly dismissed the Martin-Lawrence pairing as unlikely.
There is some connection between the two, however.
Lawrence recently completed filming on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and last year, Coldplay recorded the song Atlas, which was featured on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, according to E!.
Paltrow, meanwhile, is said be dating Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk.
