Gwyneth Paltrow Speaks Post-Split
While actress-turned lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow has been vacationing with her soon-to-be ex Chris Martin she's found some spare time to share a new recipe via her Goop site Friday… with a side of her post-split sentiments.
Titled “One Bird, Three Meals”, GP posted a “delicious” chicken recipe for all her faithful followers and a postscript note that comes with a lot of love.
“CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many. ♥” she wrote in response to the reactions that have poured in after she announced Tuesday that she and her rocker husband are going their separate ways after 10 years of marriage.
Since their "conscious uncoupling", the future ex. Mr. and Mrs. have set the amicable break-up bar pretty high by escaping the media glare together and jetting off to an isolated island in the Bahamas with their children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7.
It's been speculated for some time that the superstar pair were headed for divorce after public outings became more and more rare and those incessant cheating rumors. But after a year of trying to make it work with the help of counseling, they decided to call it quits.
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," their official statement reads. "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.
"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been," the statement continues. "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."
