After Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced they were separating everyone started speculating who gets what. The couple already assured the media and fans that they will remain a family but that doesn’t mean their estimated $150 million estate will stay put together. So who exactly gets what? Well there’s quite a few things to split up.
While we were very saddened to hear that Gwyneth Paltrow was splitting from her husband, musician Chris Martin, we couldn’t help but think that through this trying time, Gywnnie might become more grounded. Even as details about their separation become clearer, we can’t get past the slightly pretentious announcement of their “conscious uncoupling,” and we’d really love to give sympathy to the actress instead of hating on her when she puts on airs. But as we know from the past, Gwyneth has never made it easy for us to relate.
Much to the surprise of everyone, Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced the were getting divorced via the actress’s lifestyle website, Goop.com. And The Gossip Table wasted no time getting the truth behind the story. According to insiders, Martin is reportedly devastated over the “uncoupling.” He wanted the two to stay in London and work it out. However, Ms. Goop is focused on building her lifestyle and fitness empire.
A bombshell from the celebrity world came late today, as Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation. The Oscar-winning actress and Coldplay frontman had been married since 2003, and have been symbolic of a certain bucolic celebrity-style bliss ever since. However, it looks like their fairy tale is now over.
Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are ”definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

We know that Gwyneth Paltrow likes herself some gangster rap and hip-hop. You’ve seen her freestyle with Cameron Diaz and you’ve seen her bust out Gangsta Gangsta on The Graham Norton Show. You also know she’s BFF with Jay-Z. And her husband is Chris Martin who is pretty much all of Coldplay. So none of what is to follow should come as a surprise and yet it does. Perhaps it’s envy? Perhaps it’s actually seeing Gwyneth who is sp perfectly manicured all the time, dance? Coldplay and Jay co-headlined a massive New Years Eve show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and Martin joined Hov for Run This Town. It’s all in the video you see above, and you’ll even see Gwynny and Chris’ two kids, Apple and Moses, provide back-up support for their Uncle Jay. And if you look to the right, you’ll see Gwyneth bobbing up and down, shaking her (non-existent) booty, blond ponytail high in the air, swigging champagne and livin’ the life. And then you’ll see hubby Chris jumping around stage — loosely defined as “dancing” — and you’ll be thinking … when will Hov’s swagger rub off on them? Possibly never, but that’s okay. We like bad but enthusiastic dancers!
Ugh, we were fine when we thought this kind of thing only happened in Nora Ephron movies (may her genius rest in peace). But then to see an actual real-life human man stop a concert to sprint to his wife and kiss her gently in front of thousands of fans? It is just too much. Being besties with Beyonce, getting on-stage with Hova and Kanye in Paris (Twitter scandal notwithstanding), giving Glee creator Ryan Murphy a reason to get up in the morning: Gwyneth Paltrow gets to experience it all. And it makes us so enraged.
Okay, so we’re not really that angry. Just jelly that Gwyneth’s Coldplay frontman husband thought to make such a gigantic romantic gesture at their Miami concert last week. Like, Chris and Gwyneth might as well be on top of the Empire State building at this point. Or he could have come to her doorstep in the pouring rain and carried her upstairs. Well, we guess it would be their doorstep, which makes it slightly less sexy since he would have just opened the garage door and walked up the steps…look, our point is that everyone should be stopping every concert to kiss their spouses. Challenge made, every other married musician out there!
We have a theory: Adele and the Brit Awards producers must have known that no one would treat “Adele wins” as a big headline-worthy deal this week, after she swept the Grammys last week. So they purposely cut her off during her acceptance speech, and she flipped them the bird. Yep. That worked! The triumphant songstress’ middle finger livened up her otherwise risk-free appearance, but other stars at last night’s show let their gowns (or lack thereof) do the talking. For her performance, Rihanna switched out her breathtaking, beaded gold gown for a sweatshirt and some boxer brief. Jessie J flashed us her underpants through a gauzy, flamenco-style red gown. And Florence Welch looked a bit like wild animals tried to rip her dress off her — but the look kind of worked on the energetic singer. It was a night when risks paid off, after all.
Check out the looks that wowed us, and a few that we’d like to splash with some of Coldplay’s Day-Glo paint, just to liven things up a bit.
