She may make a mean sweet potato muffin (yes, they’re delicious!) and look flawless without a stitch of makeup, but it turns out there’s one thing lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow ISN’T great at: and that’s marriage. The Goop founder and her soon-to-be-ex hubby Chris Martin of Coldplay have just announced their split, and the Internets are literally breaking (goop.com, where Gwyn posted the message, keeps timing out).
In the mean time, we have a copy of the message to fans, which in true Gwyneth fashion, puts all other breakup announcements to shame. She posted a sweet photo of herself and Chris, along with a wordy post to readers titled “Conscious Uncoupling.” Here it is:
It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. 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. 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.
