After 10 years of marriage, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and singer Chris Martin are breaking up, People magazine reports. The couple made the announcement in a message posted on Paltrow’s GOOP website, with the headline “Conscious Uncoupling.”
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," Paltrow and Martin wrote. They have two children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7.
Martin, the frontman for the rock band Coldplay, and Paltrow said in their statement that they had been “working hard for well over a year” to make their relationship work. “We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," the message on GOOP read.
The couple had been the subject of breakup rumors for years, People notes. Paltrow in 2008 called the rumors “ridiculous.”
