Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Announce Separation

Gwynnie and Chris
And they said it wouldn’t last… Well, somebody probably did, and it turns out they were likely right; Coldplay’s Chris Martin (PeekYou profile here) and Oscar winning actress, Gwyneth Paltrow (PeekYou profile here), one of the frankly less interesting A-list married couples — and perhaps admirable for that — have announced their separation.

Brace yourselves, as here’s their announcement (made on Gwyneth’s website,, in a post entitled ‘Conscious Uncoupling’):

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. 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.

The two have been married since December 2003 and have two children, Apple and Moses.
