Chris Martin on Board With ‘Conscious Uncoupling’, Ditches Wedding Ring

While Gwyneth Paltrow may still be wearing her wedding ring, her estranged husband Chris Martin has taken his off.

Martin appeared at the 29th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Barclays Center of Brooklyn last night (April 10, 2014) in New York City and wasn’t wearing his wedding band.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here,” Martin said, as quoted by People. “Why do Peter Gabriel fans like myself love his music? Sometimes the songs are reassuring, like ‘Don’t Give Up’.” He then teamed up with Gabriel to perform the honoree’s song “Washing of the Water”.

Chris seems to be just fine with the world knowing that he and Gwyneth have split, while Paltrow isn’t quite so thrilled.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Paltrow would have been perfectly happy to keep up appearances and give the impression that the marriage was just fine for a few more months. Apparently, Martin was the one who thought it was “wrong” to lead people on.

A source told Page Six’s Richard Johnson: “It was his idea to announce the split. They had drifted apart, and there was no chance they’d get back together, so he felt it was wrong to keep pretending.”
