Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announce their separation

Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, and Chris Martin, 37, are no longer a couple.

The actress and the Coldplay front man have announced their separation Tuesday, March 25, after several years of rumors denied by each of them.

The message explains that they have tried to solve the crisis for more than a year, both together and separately, but have come to the conclusion that they should separate.

“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” a joint statement on Paltrow’s Goop website reads. “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.”

The post, signed “Love, Gwyneth & Chris,” is followed by a photo of the pair, but also an essay on the concept of “Conscious Uncoupling” dealing with divorce and its impact, signed by two doctors.

The couple married in December 2003, as part of a private ceremony, away from the media.

The two are parents to children Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, and their last public appearance was at the Golden Globes in January.
