Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Announce Separation


After 10 years of marriage, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation on Tuesday in a post on the actress’ GOOP site titled “Conscious Uncoupling.”

“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” reads the statement, according to E! Online which was the first to break the news. “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.”

Gwyneth and Chris, who got married on December 5, 2003, are parents to Apple, 9, and Moses, 7.
