Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin want to make certain the dirty details from the marriage won’t be revealed for the world to see.
The couple of ten years plan to divorce quickly and quietly. What are they trying to hide?
Paltrow, 41, and Martin 37, will not fight over custody of their two young children or money (which will be around $300 million). They want to keep the split from turning ugly.
Insiders point out that the Coldplay singer and Oscar-winning actress realize if they have a nasty and long divorce that things are bound to come out.
A few years ago, Chris was said to be romancing actress Kate Bosworth. He recently was said to have become close to Alexa Chung.
Gwyneth was previously linked to billionaire Jeffrey Soffer (who is now married to Elle Macpherson) and attorney Kevin Yorn, but she denied anything romantic with the two men.
The couple may have called the split a “conscious uncoupling”, but sources reveal they are definitely getting divorced.
Gwyneth and Chris were spotted together on Friday in the Bahamas, where they’ve been holed up with their children since revealing their separation. Eyewitnesses said the couple appeared happy and you’d have no clue they just announced the end of their marriage.
One person that is unhappy with the end of their marriage is Gwyneth’s mother Blythe Danner.
A source revealed, “[She’s] really upset. She loves Chris. She begged Gwyneth not to end it, that he’s a good man. But Gwyneth had to do what she felt was best.”
