Thirteen months after a “conscious uncoupling,” actress Gwyenth Paltrow is consciously pulling the plug on her marriage to Coldplay front man Chris Martin.
After a 12 year marriage, the couple shares 10-year-old daughter Apple and son Moses, who just turned nine two weeks ago. According to sources close to the family, Martin and Paltrow’s business managers have been divvying assets including finances and custody of the children.
Even post-split, the couple have remained unusually close over the past year. Martin, who has been on and off romantically with actress Jennifer Lawrence, jetted off to Bahamas with his estranged wife just days after their split was announced last year. Earlier this month, the family of four spent a weekend in Mexico.
The Ironman actress explained to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show, “We have kids, we’re always going to be family.”
The GOOP creator added, “We laugh and we have fun but there are times when it’s really difficult. Things happen and you’re like, I’m sure he doesn’t want to hang out with me and I don’t want to hang out with him but for the sake of the kids, you do it… You say, ‘I really want to find the love for you and I want to forgive you and I want you to forgive me and let’s have some fun as a family.’”
Martin revealed similar sentiments in which he shared, “We are very close. We are not together…There’s lots of love. No scandal, I’m afraid.”
Although the official end is near for Gwyn and Chris, we’re confident that there will be plenty of happy times ahead.
