Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin Split After 10 Years Of Marriage

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have announced they are to separate after 10 years of marriage. (Cue very sad face).


The actress and the Coldplay frontman issued the news in a statement on Gwyneth's website, Goop, in a post titled "Conscious Uncoupling".

According to the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, it said: "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate.

"We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.

"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been.

"We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

"We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

The message was signed off, "Love, Gwyneth & Chris."

The announcement was followed by a statement about "Conscious Uncoupling" by Dr. Habib Sadeghi and Dr. Sherry Sami, who explain that it is divorce.

According to, it read: "Naturally, divorce is much easier if both parties choose to have a conscious uncoupling. However, your experience and personal growth isn't conditional on whether or not your spouse chooses to participate. You can still receive the lessons he or she has to give you, resist being baited into dramatic arguments, and stand firm in your internal, spiritual support system. By choosing to handle your uncoupling in a conscious way, regardless of what's happening with your spouse, you'll see that although it looks like everything is coming apart; it's actually all coming back together."

The couple are parents to Apple, nine, and Moses, seven.

They reportedly jetted off to the Bahamas before the announcement was made to ensure they were out of the limelight following the breaking news.

Rumours have been swirling of an impending split for months, and Gwyneth has been forced to deny two reports of extra-marital affairs, with Elle Macpherson's husband Jeffery Soffer, and lawyer Kevin Yorn.

Chris and Gywneth married in a private ceremony in Mexico back in 2003. And we, for one, are sad to hear their news.
