Consciously uncoupled before it even began...Chris Martin slams Alexa Chung dating rumours

Chris Martin has slammed reports he's dating fashionista Alexa Chung.

The pair were reported to have enjoyed a New York date together earlier this week, less than two months after announcing his split from wife of 10 years Gwyneth Paltrow, but the Coldplay frontman poured hot water on the claims.

A rep for the musician told Us Weekly the reports, which originated in Heat magazine, are 'completely untrue'.

British magazine Heat has exclusive pictures of the pair at bar Elsa, where they are seen laughing and joking with each other over a beer.

"When I arrived, about 9.15pm, they were tucked away in a dark corner of the back room of the bar," a source told the publication.

"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. It definitely looked like a date to me."

Chris Martin gives an interview to BBC Radio One this evening where he talks candidly about his marriage ending.

"I spotted them straight away, and asked Chris, 'Are you a singer?' He just laughed and said, 'Yes, but not tonight.' He was a really nice guy - he shook my hand and didn't care that he was being recognised," the insider explained. "But Alexa seemed more reluctant to introduce herself. She didn't really want to talk."

Chris and Alexa are thought to have met at last year's Glastonbury music festival and also bonded as both UK stars were spending a lot of time in the US.

Martin has kept relatively quiet about his pending divorce from his Oscar winning wife, but recently revealed to BBC Radio One: This was more a realization about trying to grow up basically… if you can't open yourself up, you can't appreciate the wonder inside.

"So you can be with someone very wonderful, but because of your own issues you cannot let that be celebrated in the right way," Martin admitted.
