Chris Martin is flatly denying a report claiming he had an affair with a “Saturday Night Live” assistant.

The New York Post started the rumor, alleging that “NBC is abuzz that the Coldplay singer” had a fling with the unidentified woman after appearing on the show back in 2011.

Last month, Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow revealed their decision to split after a decade of marriage, prompting a new wave of speculation about the couple’s alleged dalliances.

The Post’s sources don’t name the person with whom Martin supposedly had the fling, and seem confused about whether she worked for the show or was merely “backstage [as] part of an entourage.”

Either way, Murray Chalmers, a rep for Martin, has now shot down the latest rumor.

“This is completely untrue, we totally deny it,” he tells The Mirror.
