Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have decided to separate.
The pair announced the news on Gwyneth’s GOOP website on Tuesday.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” they wrote, in a joint statement. “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.”
Gwyneth and Chris married in 2003. They are parents to Apple, 10, and Moses, 8.
“We are however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” the note on GOOP continued. “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 note was signed, “Love, Gwyneth & Chris.”
