It's a sad day for love. according to The sunChris Martin and Dakota Johnson separated after 18 months together. The relationship would have ended last month to the surprise of their friends.
"Chris and Dakota were very serene and always seemed very happy together," said a friend to the newspaper.
The split was even more shocking since the couple would have discussed the possibility of becoming engaged.
"There was talk of commitment, but now he says that they broke up, which was a real surprise for everyone," added the friend.
Although the couples were never officially engaged, they had no problem showing their commitment to each other. In September 2018, Johnson unveiled a new tattoo, a symbol of the infinite, on the red carpet. The previous month, Martin had been photographed with the same tattoo on his arm.
The last time that Johnson and Martin were photographed together at the November 2018 dinner, Martin's ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, recently sang the praises of his new girlfriend in an interview with Sunday Times published earlier this month. Paltrow called Johnson a "fantastic woman," adding, "I love her."
Although Paltrow has since remarried, she and her new husband, Brad Falchuk, have had a vacation with Martin. Maybe Paltrow can organize a couple vacation and ask them to express themselves or, at the very least, give them advice on how to decouple consciously.
