Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin and Fifty Shades of Grey star, Dakota Johnson, are dating. The couple has kept things pretty quiet over the last several months. But Dakota’s mother, Melanie Griffith, recently weighed in on her daughter’s new partner. Keep reading for her verdict.
Not much is known about Martin and Johnson’s new relationship. Back in December, they were both seen in Paris and at the time, they confirmed being together. But since then, they’ve kept things on the down low.
Then this week, at the Global Gift Foundation USA Women’s Empowerment Luncheon, Johnson’s mother, Melanie Griffith shared her thoughts on Martin saying, “I adore him!”
However, she didn’t spill any more beans on her daughter’s relationship, adding that “[Johnson] is very private about her life and I respect that.”
And a source confirmed as much saying both Martin and Johnson “spend most nights hanging out at his house and laying low.”
So, what do we know about the Johnson and her new beau?
According to sources, Martin, 41, and Johnson, 28, were first seen having a romantic dinner together in Los Angeles last October. Over the last seven months, the couple has been spotted throughout Malibu – where Martin lives.
Back in February, both attended Ellen DeGegeneres’ big 60th birthday bash, where they were seen holding hands in a casual encounter with Drew Barrymore. Johnson even joined Martin in Argentina, where his band, Coldplay, played a concert.
Sources say they look “happy” and “flirty” as they enjoy time alone and with mutual friends.
This news comes just weeks after Martin’s ex, Gwyneth Paltrow, celebrated her new engagement to Brad Falchuck, with friends Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and others.
Neither Johnson nor Martin have made a public statement about their relationship,
