By now, everyone has heard that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have split up. In our minds, we have tried to guess and create our own reasons for their break up. Whatever the reason, Paltrow found it necessary to inform the entertainment media that their divorce did not happen due to any infidelity of any kind. A close friend of Platrow, stated they had an “open relationship” and were okay with seeing other people during their marriage. “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”. According to Paltrow’s recent interview with People magazine, they have been on and off for some time, and the separation was a long time coming. In the upcoming April 14th edition of People magazine, an inside source stated “They were physically separated and emotionally. They always have been comfortable executing issues aside. No one imagined that was strange”.
When Paltrow was asked if the divorce occurred due to the rumored infidelity, she denied it. If the source is accurate, that may not be so hard to believe. Martin has been romantically linked to Kate Bosworth and Helena Christensen, and former Paltrow pal Kate Hudson. Paltrow isn’t innocent either. Allegedly, she has spent time with billionaire Jeffrey Soffer, Glee producer Brad Falchuk, and attorney Kevin Yorn.
According to an inside source, the real reason behind Paltrow’s and Martin’s divorce has nothing to do with infidelity. The two separated because they had completely different ways of living. The source stated “At the heart of the unraveling of their 10-year marriage was her obsession with staying young. Gwyneth was anxious about aging and that made her interested in flirting and trying to feel sexy so she could feel that her beauty was not fleeting. Gwyneth welcomed public attention, which Chris didn’t. There is a narcissism there. The rocker is the kind of person who is always in a T-shirt. She’s much more glam”.
Since the break up, Martin and Paltrow have remained friends. At least, that’s the way it seems. In photos from People Magazine, they are spending time together, with their children, in the Bahamas. Personally, I think it is great that the two have managed to stay friends, especially when children are involved.
Do you believe that their divorce happened because of their different ways of living or their “open relationship”?
