Chris Martin Spotted on PDA-Filled Beach Date with Dakota Johnson


Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson appear to have confirmed their relationship, as they kissed and cuddled on a beach in Los Angeles.

Having already been photographed on a dinner date at Soho House (12Jan18) in West Hollywood, the Coldplay frontman and the Fifty Shades of Grey actress have now been pictured enjoying a romantic beach stroll earlier that day in Malibu.

Chris, 40, and Dakota were first linked back in October, when the 28-year-old was seen sitting with the Coldplay crew when the band performed at a concert in Argentina a month later.

The pair were then subsequently spotted at Charles De Gaulle airport on 19 December (17), after apparently having spent a few days together in Paris.

According to Us Weekly, a source has confirmed that Chris and Dakota are “definitely dating”, and revealed that “Chris sends Dakota his music to get her opinion. It’s more than just a fling.” Another insider told Entertainment Tonight that the A-listers spend most of their nights “hanging out” at Chris’ house, and added that “his friends already love her and see how happy she makes him.”

Pictures obtained by the Daily Mail show Dakota and Chris looking very close as they walked arm-in-arm along the beach in Malibu. Dakota, who is the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, also brought her dog Zeppelin along for the walk.

She has previously dated musician Matthew Hitt on and off for two years, while Chris was married to Gwyneth Paltrow, 45, from 2003 until the couple ‘consciously uncoupled’ in 2014.

Their divorce was finalized in July 2016, but the former couple have remained friends and enjoy holidays together with their daughter Apple, 13, and son Moses, 11.
