Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have announced that they are going to “consciously uncouple”. Which is the fluffiest possible way to say that they’re splitting up. The news was announced via Paltrow’s lifestyle website Goop, which (the About page says) she set up in order “to share all of life’s positives”.

“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate”, the couple’s statement reads, thus ruining the premise of the whole website. “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”.

They 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. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner”.

Paltrow’s next film, ‘Mortdecai’, is due out later this year, and Martin is also gearing up for the release of a new Coldplay album in May.
