Coldplay’s lead singer and Academy Award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow have announced their separation through Paltrow’s blog post in Goop.com.
The couple are separating after more than 10 years of marriage and 2 children together, Apple (9) and Moses (7).
After the statement has been posted, Goop.com crashed in just minutes.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” the couple wrote.
The couple also said that they had 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”.
“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been.”
Paltrow, who won an Oscar for Best Actress in 1998 for her role in “Shakespeare in Love”, most recently starred in “Iron Man 3”.
Martin, whose band Coldplay are due to release their sixth studio album this year, is set to appear as a mentor in the current series of “The Voice” in the US.
