Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Reportedly Finalize Divorce, But That Doesn't Mean They'll Stop Being Friends
It looks like Goop and Coldplay's lead singer are officially over. According to TMZ, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have finalized their divorce. Per sources connected to the formerly married couple, documents were filed on Monday. Apparently, Paltrow and Martin looked to their respective business managers in working out a settlement agreement, which involved both property and custody of their two children. TMZ reports the "agreement has been signed and the divorce is a done deal." Now, the two just have to wait for the paperwork to be filed and signed by the judge.
Furthermore, TMZ says the terms of the deal will not be disclosed in the divorce documents, as it is a confidential settlement. However, the website reports that Paltrow and Martin are seeking joint legal and physical custody of their children, Apple and Moses. The site also says the documents will "cite irreconcilable differences," but the divorce is "very amicable."
Despite their divorce, Paltrow and Martin will likely still be friends. Ever since the two announced their separation, aka their "conscious uncoupling," they've remained very civil and continue to act as a family. From going on vacation together to still living near one another to attending school events, the former couple haven't let their divorce get in the way of being friend and parenting their kids.
A source told People of the divorce, "This is a natural evolution for Gwyneth and Chris as friends and as a couple. They remain close, and they remain totally committed to Apple and Moses — as they find their way forward as individuals, they will naturally be more public about seeing other people, if not showy about it."
How can you not respect Martin and Paltrow for remaining friends and ensuring their children don't go through a horrible divorce? You might not agree with all of Paltrow's actions, but when it comes to being a mom, there's no doubt she wants the best for her children.
