As Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow deal with the fall-out of their decision to consciously uncouple’, Now has learnt that the 41-year-old mum of two has turned to her ex Brad Pitt for support.

And it’s causing friction with his bride-to-be Angelina Jolie.

Brad stays friendly with all his exes, but a source reveals that phone lines between him and Gwynnie have been red hot since the start of the year.

Brad and Angie are open with each other and she wasn’t happy when she found out he’s been talking to Gwyneth so much,’ reveals an insider.

Brad and Gwyneth dated for three years after falling for each other when they were filming Se7en in 1994.

They split in 1997 and friends of Gwyneth say she still thinks the world of him.

There’s a real affection between them,’ reveals the source.

I think she’s been using him as a shoulder to cry on – especially as he has experience of a high-profile divorce from Jennifer Aniston so he knows what life’s like for her right now.’

But unsurprisingly, Angelina, 38, wasn’t happy.

He tried to explain the situation to Angie and understood why she might be upset, but insisted there was nothing going on between him and Gwyneth,’ says our source.

After all, Angie doesn’t seem to think it’s a big deal that Brad checks in with Jen Aniston from time to time.’
