Gwenyth Paltrow and Chris Martin have played out their last note as they have announced they are splitting up after 10 years of marriage.
The couple shared the news on the actress’ lifestyle website, GOOP, in a blog post titled “Conscious Uncoupling,” Tuesday afternoon.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” it reads. “We have been working hard for well over a year … 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.”
While the actress and Coldplay frontman tried to work out their marriage for a long time they’ve realized they are better off as loving friends rather than married partners.
Based on multiple sources,it sounds like the separation has been a long time coming. The couple worked hard to stay together for the sake of their children: daughter Apple, 9, and son Moses, 7. According to US Magazine, the couple have taken their kids to the Bahamas to enjoy a family getaway while the news breaks of their separation.
“We are however, and always will be a family … We are parents first and foremost,” Paltrow and Martin shared in the GOOP post. The couple also asked for privacy during this difficult time.
