is reportedly planning to move to America next year as Coldplay
take a year off from touring and making music.
Family man Martin, who is married to Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow
, is believed to be relocating so Gwyneth can be nearer to her mother. With Coldplay taking a year off entirely in 2013 the move looks likely to happen.
"Chris and Gwyneth have wanted to move to Los Angeles for a while,"
a source told The Sun.
Adding: Gwyneth spends a lot of time between the UK and the US and she's exhausted. The purpose of buying the lavish home in Brentwood was to make that a semi-permanent base. Gwyneth spends a lot of time away from her mum, Blythe, and wants to be closer to her as she gets older."
Gwyneth's Mother is Blythe Danner
, a fellow actress who has appeared in films such as Meet The Parents.
"Chris was very understanding and is willing to give living in Los Angeles a chance because he's always loved the city,"
the source continued. "Chris's band won't be working on a new album for at least another year so he has some breathing space to kick back.
