Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have managed to stay on friendly terms since their separation was announced last week, even enjoying a vacation with their children to the Bahamas.
Insiders reveal they have been off/on for some time now and that Gwyneth “didn’t care” if Chris slept with other women.
People magazine reveals that a source said the couple had an “open” relationship, separated not only physically but emotionally.
The 41-year-old “Iron Man” actress and her Coldplay musician husband, 37, lived separate lives and were with other people.
Chris Martin was linked to Kate Bosworth and Helena Christensen, but also Gwyneth’s pal Kate Hudson. Christensen and Hudson have denied any romantic link with Martin, but Bosworth has refused to comment.
Gwyneth Paltrow was romantically linked to billionaire Jeffrey Soffer (who is now married to model Elle Macpherson), “Glee” producer Brad Falchuk, and attorney Kevin Yorn.
A source close to Paltrow revealed, “If Chris was playing around, Gwyneth didn’t care. She’s never been jealous or territorial. Her philosophy is, ‘We’re both adults. We make our own choices.'”
Back in September, Gwyneth said, “No couple is the same, and as such, every couple takes on different challenges. I would like to think I would be forgiving and/or forgiven.”
One source said the 10-year marriage was also having problems because of Paltrow’s obsession with staying young.
An insider said Gwyneth was “anxious about aging” and was flirting and trying to feel sexy.
