Gwyneth Paltrow Files for Divorce from Chris Martin


Gwyneth Paltrow and her estranged husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, have filed for divorce.

The actress cited irreconcilable differences in the documents, which were filed in Los Angeles on April 20 after 11 years of marriage.

The divorce documents request joint custody of their two children, Apple and Moses.

Gwyneth Paltrow, 42, and Chris Martin, 38, announced their separation in March 2014, describing it as a “conscious uncoupling”.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin said they had “come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much, we will remain separate”.

The couple said 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,” their statement said.

“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.”

Their divorce’s confirmation comes after days of speculation the actress had filed the papers.

The documents do not list any details about how Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin will divide their assets, but asks that both sides pay their own lawyers’ fees.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin married in secret ceremony in December 2003, days after they announced Paltrow was pregnant with their first child.
