Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Hit Splitsville

Coldplay fans and expensive cleanse aficionados, brace yourselves: Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are splitting up.

For real.

In a post published on GOOP (Paltrow’s wellness blog and purveyor of all things organic) titled “Conscious Uncoupling),” the pair officially announced their breakup to the world:

Paltrow and Martin were married 10 years ago in a private ceremony in Santa Barbara, California. They have two kids, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7. Paltrow, whose father, Bruce Paltrow, descends from a long line of Eastern European rabbis, has previously said she wants to raise her children Jewish.

Side note: According to Jezebel, the news prompted overzealous fans to swarm the GOOP website, causing it to crash. Oy.
