Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin to split up

  • @eonline - Twitter

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are to split up after over 10 years of marriage. The actress and singer have two children, 9 year old Apple and 7 year old Moses.

The shock announcement came in the unlikeliest of manners too with Paltrow publishing a letter from both herself and Chris to her blog site Goop. Almost immediately, the traffic that came looking for news of the break up crashed the site pretty soon after the blog post was published.

Paltrow and Martin outlined the situation saying “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 post continued "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".

The blog post makes it clear that the couple have fought hard in the past to overcome their issues but unfortunately that has not worked out. This is certainly the biggest news to come from the generally squeaky clean couple since Chris had a few mishaps in the kitchen.
