Is it love for this controversial star and her new man?

They've yet to publicly acknowledge their relationship, but it seems like Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are falling more in love by the day.

Both of them have only recently finished long-term relationships – Jen with Nicholas Hoult and Chris with Gywneth Paltrow – so it's understandable they want to keep things quiet for now. But Chris only had eyes for J-Law at a recent Coldplay gig in New York.

The American Hustle actress is said to have attended with some friends, much to Chris' excitement. He apparently pointed Jen out when he saw her in the crowd, and waved and sang to her numerous times during the gig. Aaaaaw!

Though they have yet to be pictured together. Jen was snapped leaving Chris' Malibu beach house earlier this week, shying from photographers in sunglasses and a beanie hat. 

Sources close to Chris say the reason the couple have been keeping things low-key is that they wish to be respectful to the singer's ex-wife Gywneth. "Jen has made a few visits to his Malibu house," said a friend. "Chris seems very respectful of Gwyneth and feels more comfortable spending time with Jen away from his family."

Chris and Gwyneth "consciously uncoupled" back in March but they are still very hands-on parents to their children Apple and Moses.

"Gwyneth and Chris take the kids for brunch or dinner together every weekend. He and Gwyneth still share responsibilities," said the source.

We're glad to hear he's taking things slow with his new squeeze, so!
