Rumor mills will no doubt have a field day with this one.

Chris Martin was apparently spotted enjoying the company of Alexa Chung in New York City recently.

A source revealed to Heat magazine that the two grabbed a drink together at the bar Elsa last week, less than two months after it was announced that the Coldplay frontman and wife Gwyneth Paltrow had split after 10 years of marriage.

"When I arrived, about 9:15 p.m., they were tucked away in a dark corner of the back room of the bar," the source is quoted as saying.

The eyewitness added, "Chris and Alexa seemed to know each other really well. They were both in a great mood, and even asked us to watch their bags when they went out for a cigarette. It defnitely looked like a date to me."

Whether it was actually a date or not, though, remains to be seen.

After all, it may have simply been two friends getting together and catching up.

The singer and the socialite reportedly met a year ago at the Glastonbury music festival last year. What's more, Chung even has a bit of a connection to Paltrow—they see the same London hairdresser, George Northwood, something the Oscar winner herself has noted in her own Goop newsletters.
