Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin split: Couple to separate after more than 10 years of marriage
Tuesday 25 March 2014
Actor Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin are to split after more than 10 years of marriage, they announced in a blog post entitled “Conscious Uncoupling”.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” the couple wrote on Paltrow's Goop website.
“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.”
Martin and Paltrow, who married in 2003, have two children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7.
“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,” they added.
“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.”
Martin, 37, the Grammy-winning lead vocalist of Coldplay, and Paltrow, 41, who won an Oscar for her performance in “Shakespeare in Love”, were among Hollywood's highest profile couples.
The duo frequently accompanied each other to public events, such as this year's Golden Globes ceremony and the Help Haiti Home gala earlier this year, but they rarely posed together on red carpets.
