Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin splitHollywood A lister Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay front man Chris Martin have separated after 10 years of marriage.

Gwyneth took to her website Goop to make the announcement writing, ‘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 pair, who have two children together Apple, 9 and Moses, 7, 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.’

Shortly after the announcement was made divorce tips were posting up on the website.
