Coldplay’s Chris Martin Recalled The Time When He Was Accused Of Stealing 30 Pounds While He Worked At A Supermarket
British rock band, Coldplay’s popular member Chris Martin revealed being accused of stealing in the very early days of his life. While he made an appearance on BBC 2, he recalled the time when on the very first day of his job where he was employed as a cashier of a supermarket, he was accused of stealing £30. Hence, during the show he clarified that he did not steal any money; probably it was before Chris made it big in the music industry.

As reported in Dailymail, Chris recalling this incident stated that he used to work at a supermarket named Kwik Save in the late 1990s. He was employed as a cashier as he did not smoke or drink or get lottery, hence he was put on the counter surrounded with these things. He said, “I used to work at a supermarket called Kwik Save in the late 1990s. I don't drink or smoke or do the lottery so they put me on the alcohol and cigarette counter where they sell scratch cards and it somewhat put me off.”

The Paradise singer further revealing mentioned it was his manager who accused him of stealing money and warned him nothing like this should happen again. He said, “Only my manager, Mr. White would remember me from then, and he accused me of stealing on my first day. He said the till was £30 down and not to let it happen again, and I didn't gosh darn it. I didn't steal it, I'd like to go on record.”


During the interview, he also spoke about how the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown imposed with its outbreak was an eye opener for him.  ALSO READ: When Coldplay’s Frontman Chris Martin Lay Still On The Stage, Not Once But THRICE!
