Dakota Johnson has brushed off a 12-year age gap to date Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex-husband Chris Martin. The couple has been rumored to be dating for months, but now the rumors have been confirmed.

The 28-year-old actress and the 40-year-old Cold Play frontman have neither confirmed nor denied the reports.

But they were spotted together at a Malibu restaurant, getting very “personal” together.

“Chris and Dakota arrived together in Chris’ car. They met up with friends and had a fun night. They both seemed very happy. They were flirty, and also left the restaurant together,” a source told People.

The stars first sparked relationship rumors in October last year after they were spotted on a sushi date night.

They were spotted in public again in December at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.

It has been reported the duo have become “very comfortable” with one another over recent months, and the ‘Yellow’ singer has even consulted the beauty on his music.

“Dakota and Chris are definitely dating,” another source says.

“They’ve got 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.”

Paltrow, 45, dated Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck before she hooked up with Martin in 2002. She’s five years his senior.

They married a year later and had two children. The went through a highly publicized “conscious uncoupling” in 2014. She’s since become engaged to Brad Falchuk, a television writer and producer.
