Break-Up Rumors Not True

Reports of Gwyneth Paltrow's new relationship with Prince Nicolas seem to be unfounded - she's madly in love with Coldplay rocker Chris Martin.
Despite claims over the weekend that the Hollywood star had begun a new romance with the Greek royal, sources in British newspaper The Sun report that her two-month relationship with the British singer has grown increasingly serious.
The Oscar winner has flown her mother Blyth Danner in from Los Angeles to meet her boyfriend.
Paltrow arranged for her mother to fly into London on a private jet, before being whisked off by helicopter to her pals Sting and Trudie Styler's house in Wiltshire so she could introduce mom to Martin.
A friend of Paltrow's says, "Gwyneth was anxious for her mother to meet Chris, but because he has been so busy touring with the band around Europe and she has been filming Ted and Sylvia all the time, it has been difficult for them to arrange a date.
"The dinner party at Sting and Trudie's was the ideal opportunity for them all to meet up.
"I think Chris was really nervous but he carried himself off really well. Blythe absolutely loves him. She thinks he's the best boyfriend Gwyneth has ever had - he was very charming."
Paltrow now intends to spend Christmas Day at Martin's family home in Exeter after meeting the Yellow hitmaker's mother Alison at a recent Coldplay gig.
The source adds, "Chris has said it is cool if she wants to go down for Christmas. It will be a real family affair but Gwyn is a bit nervous."
The pair will round off their Christmas break by going off for a romantic two-week break together in the Maldives - and Paltrow's pal predicts that the happy couple will continue to go from strength to strength.
They say, "As far as Gwyneth is concerned the sky is the limit now. She is head over heels and has told us that Chris is the love of her life."
