Jen and Chris split after four months

They were Hollywood's latest celebrity couple, but Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence's fledgling romance appers to have hit the rocks.

American celebrity news station, E! News are reporting that the pair have split after just four months together.

Lawrence (24) and Martin (37) were only ever photographed together once during their short time as a couple.

The Oscar-winning actress and Coldplay frontman began dating in late June, shortly after her split with X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult, and his split with Gwyneth Paltrow.

The musician famously announced his separation from Paltrow after more than 10 years of marriage in March, in a joint statement saying they had "consciously uncoupled".


It was thought that their romance was going from strength to strength after Jennifer was spotted supporting Martin when he performed with The Kings of Leon at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this month and at Coldplay's iHeartRadio performance in Las Vegas.

The rumoured break-up comes after it was revealed this week that Jennifer wanted a make over to make her look like the cool "girlfriend of a rock god" and had reportedly introduced Martin to her mother.

The Hunger Games star is known for her modest and classy wardrobe, but was said to be updating her image to fit into the live music scene.

She reportedly splashed out on a whole new range of edgy T-shirts and jeans so that she would look the part while backstage at Coldplay's gigs.

The Silver Linings Playbook actress recently described her dream man in the November issue of Vanity Fair.

"Basically, what I'm saying is all I need in a relationship is somebody to watch TV with me," Jennifer said.

"I don't like fighting, and I find argumentative people the most annoying people on the planet.

It's just unattractive," she added.
