Dakota Johnson & Chris Martin Basc Confirm Relationship with Vacation

By  | 

Rumors that Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin were dating started just days after the Fifty Shades Freed star was linked to actor John Hamm. The pair was apparently “cozy, laughing and affectionate” while grabbing dinner together in October, but no one knew if the celebs were the real deal, or if their romance would soon fizzle. It looks like the latter is not the case, because the actress and musician are, according to Us Weekly, an official couple.

“Dakota and Chris are definitely dating,” a source told the magazine. “They’ve gotten to know each other really well and are very comfortable from one another. Chris sends Dakota his music to get her opinion. It’s more than just a fling.”

The Coldplay frontman and real-life Anastasia Steele basically confirmed this source’s claim by jetting off to Israel together last month. The celebrities were spotted at Nick Cave’s concert and later at Yam Sheva restaurant in Herzliya with the singer.

An eyewitness told Us, “They came in and they were really, really nice, like extremely nice. It was a surprise. They sat with Nick Cave, too. I didn’t see them kiss or hold hands or anything like that. They ordered some starters and not a lot of food.”

While Chris and Dakota didn’t show any PDA during that particular meal, their interaction was much more “flirty” the last time they were seen dining out together in L.A. at a restaurant called Sushi Park.

“Chris and Dakota walked in together and sat at a table for two tucked away in the corner,” an onlooker told the mag. “They seemed very happy to see each other and immediately jumped into conversation. She was catching him up on work and the different projects she has coming up. She was telling him where she is going to be and asking him what he thought.”

“They both seemed to really respect each other’s opinions. Chris was very charming and personable. His face lit up when he was talking to her. He hummed a little bit and asked her what she thought of a song. She clearly loves his music and was really into it. They were flirty and laughing the entire meal. He paid for dinner and held the door for her. They both thanked the chefs on the way out.”

The 40-year-old was previously married to Gwyneth Paltrow for about 13 years and the 28-year-old was last in a longterm relationship with model Matthew Hitt.
