Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Split After 10 Years of Marriage

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are going their separate ways after 11 years of marriage.

“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,” the 41-year-old actress and the 37-year-old singer wrote on her website.

The couple added, “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 tied the knot in December 2003 and that they have two children – Apple,9, and Moses, 7.

    Not much shocks me anymore and “stunned” is the most over used adjective on the planet when it comes to describing something pertaining to HW/celebrities but, right now? It IS the only word I can use to describe my reaction.

  • ivana

    Never thought they were together in the first place so this is no a shocker.

  • yeah

    They cheated on each other nonstop, so no big surprise. At least they don’t continue to keep up a phony facade.

  • analu

    No, not surprised. Don’t care. Just… “conscious uncoupling”? Pretentious brat.

  • Love The Shoes

    @ivana: I’m not a fan of either (like her more than him but don’t love her) but I thought they were in the celebrity marriage success column. She adored her dad and I remember an interview were she said Chris was someone very close to her father personality speaking. Never wish a break up on anyone and so I hope it’s a friendly parting.

  • kami

    oh my…conscious uncoupling? is that the new word for divorce?

  • Bret

    What!? I did not see this coming although I probably should have

  • Love The Shoes

    @yeah: And you know they cheated how? When ppl say things like this as if they have irrefutable truth I personally expect those facts to be revealed so it can’t be denied and so will you be providing proof?

  • shamrock

    Completely NOT surprised by this announcement. It was amazing they had been with each other for 11 years in this world surrounding them with fame, fortune, and so forth.

    Hopefully, the kiddos will be ok through this tough transition as divorce hits the hardest for the kids. But, I’m sure if the parents are cordial and kind to each other, it will be fine.

    No person is perfect, and life is a journey of trials and tribulations.


  • Viola

    I bet they will have the most civilized break up in HW history.

  • Brin

    Couldn’t happen to a better bi*ch
    Chris just wants some meat, and I got plenty

  • stanhope

    Who would stay married to that shrew? She is married to her own ego. See you next tuesday.

  • miapocca

    Its because of goop

  • Mélanie

    WHAT THE F???? noooooo ! I’m so disappointed or sad or idk , what the f is happening in hollywood ?

  • Susie#1

    I’m not surprised that they’ve separated; she’s one of the most boring and pretentious people – ever. From everything I’ve read by her and about her, she reeks of self-entitlement. I know nothing at all about Chris Martin, but he does seem down-to-earth.

  • coldplay

    Kate Bosworth is kicking herself right now.

  • finl

    TOld YOU SO>>6 months ago

  • OMG

    @Susie#1: So true. He’s not hot at all but seriously, who but a total pushover could stand being married to her?

    There were signs. She kept talking about how hard it was to stay married and how now she understands why people cheat.

  • namers

    “Conscious Coupling, Divorce Goopy Style”

  • Michele

    Chris gets to keep Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

  • twenty9

    They seemed to be in crisis practically since they got married. She’s still in love with Brad.

  • Brazilian Girl

    Who the heck stays together in Hollywood?!

  • er um

    He’s a musician (in general, good luck with them), and she is not the liveliest woman, is she?

  • mike

    not surprised at all they have always looked so miserable together.
    they have been having problems for years.

  • Dee

    Meh, not shocking, she’s hinted at this for the better part of the year, since ‘Iron Man 3′ came out….and this is all excluding all that VF drama…

  • pip

    @twenty9: Please leave Brad out of it, she cheated on him, probably did the same to Chris, who deserves a medal for putting up with her over eleven year.
    Plus Brad’s ex-wife is still riding his coattails nine years later.

  • Viola
  • allison

    So Ms perfect did cheat on Chris Martin.

  • James

    This is just very sad.

  • aassaasd

    “consciously uncouple”?? Does she ever stop being pretentious, even for one moment?

    And maybe if you guys weren’t cheating on each other left and right then you wouldn’t have to “uncouple”

  • aquarius64

    I didn’t see this coming. I wasn’t aware there were allegations of cheating on both sides, but I haven’t paid much attention to her.


    GP dumped the guy for that kitchen scene in Casino Royale.


    OOPS. Sorry about my above below-freezing no.32 temperature number sign posting. Didn’t mean to make light of the situation.

  • er um

    @Brazilian Girl: Honey, the road is “narrow.”

  • Liyle

    That is where Ben Affleck is these days ? Have not seen himHmmm
    Her son looks like him,

  • ha

    @pip: When Brad Pitt becomes aware of this, he’s REALLY not going to want to get married — can’t trust it!

  • meiii

    yes……now she can have brad pitt…he’s not married….

  • funny9

    He was a moody musician and she always think she’s great. I don’t think Brad is much too interested. She treated him like she was way better and smarter, I heard back then

  • Gigi

    This is a break up not only of a couple but of a FAMILY. That is so so sad. I don’t care who it is, it’s a terrible thing. I feel sorry for them.

  • Looselipz

    Big giant “DUH”. Their marriage was more open than Kim K’s legs. 😆

  • Goop snot face

    Brad Pitt has no use for Goopy. Brad called her Paltrow when he had to speak her name in the past. After all Goopy gave one of the Weinstein bros a bj for a part in a film while they were dating.
    Of course word got back back to Brad and Goopy knew it would . Pitt walked away and never looked back..
    He is in a place of big love and happiness being engaged to Angie going on a 10 yr. relationship so he is taken and glad to be with what he called his Angie > his other worldly half .

    Goopy went on tv and admitted she did something VERY VERY BAD to Brad Pitt and blabbed on and on how it took her 5 yrs to get over him. But what she did to him was so wrong it was hard to forgive herself . HUH! LOL Sure Goop!!.You knew everybody had heard of your indiscretions so thought if you mince words it might bring some of your supporters back. NOT.
    Well now Goopy can go back to that rich guy she got caught screwing around with from It was a Vanity Fair drama not that long ago. Goops is a pretentious snot and screwing around is certainly not beneath her. Can’t blame Chris for giving her a taste of her own medicine. Feel bad for all kids in these types of situations but am sure Goop will be coming out with her new man soon.

    Chris Martin is incredible. Paltrow is a flake.

    Thank you for being a voice of logic.

    CDAN : Vanity Fair teased the world when they hinted they were going to write an expose on Gwyneth Paltrow. After doing some digging the expose was going to center around Gwyneth Paltrow’s affair with billionaire Jeff Soffer who is now married to Elle MacPherson. The article never really materialized. Vanity Fair buckled under Gwyneth’s onslaught of publicity and calling them out. Well, one person who didn’t buckle is the former editor of Gawker, Neetzan Zimmerman who is now the editor of a new app called Whisper. He says that Gwyneth is cheating on her husband with entertainment lawyer Kevin Yorn. Neetzan says he was approached by the person who was going to be the source of the Vanity Fair article and published it to his new app. Both Gwyneth and Kevin Yorn have denied the report. Well, it isn’t like they are going to admit it. Somewhere Gwyneth is probably telling her friends to not talk to Whisper. Stephen Huvane is Gwyneth’s rep and he also represents a bunch of tabloid favorites like Jennifer Aniston so they probably won’t follow through because they want access to all of his other clients.

    Chris Martin – Most Eligible Bachelor! His dating card is going to be long.

    So this announcement comes on the day that she is appearing in Glee for their 100th episode. The only tweet on her twitter is a reminder that the show is on tonight. So weird.

  • Trashy

    Gp trashes the u.s.a.
    “Spain has become my second home. It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it’s from 500 B.C., it’s incredible. Also, the way people live over there. They seem to enjoy life a little bit more,” she continued. “They aren’t running around as much as in New York. They enjoy time with the family. They don’t always have their BlackBerry on.”

    Maybe she should stay in Spain. Btw what is the unemployment rate? 56%

  • No fatty

    Gp wants no fat people around her.

    “Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow is tired of Mario Batali being fat. The reason? Well if you believe the sources of the NY Post, it is because she doesn’t have any other fat friends and so wants him to change. “

  • Debby

    Could you explain it more clearly. We know that she cheated on Brad and she was devastated when he dropped. But what really happened?

  • No amigos

    CDAN :
    Are Jay-Z and Beyonce are Gwyneth Paltrow’s friends? Nope they aren’t. Beyonce and Jay-Z are Chris Martin’s friends. Jay and Chris have been friends forever and Gwyneth is allowed to stand next to Beyonce at a Jay-Z concert when Chris is also there. No Chris? No Goopster next to Beyonce. To show you how much Jay-Z loves Gwyneth he was on the cover of Vanity Fair after she urged her friends not to do anything for the magazine.

    Now Gwyneth wants all her friends to boycott the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Why should they? Tell me one thing Gwyneth has done for any of them except suggest failings in their life that she alone has the capability to correct. Her cure often consists of a starvation diet and a mirror.
