We have sad news to share – Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have separated after more than ten years of marriage. Gwyneth took to her goop blog this afternoon to share their joint statement about the split.
There have been rumors and rumblings for some time now and looks like it was true after all. Gwyneth and Chris shared, “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.”
They continue , explaining their hope to remain a family. “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. Love, Gwyneth & Chris”
The couple share two children, Apple and Moses, and just celebrated their tenth anniversary in December. Poor Gwyneth has been through the wringer for the past year or so! We wish them both happiness in their new chapters!
