Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are setting up to get a divorce, according to a source talking to Grazia magazine. The source has said that both Paltrow and Martin came to the decision after remaining on amicable terms after deciding to “consciously uncouple” over 10 months ago. Both Paltrow and Martin recent took a trip to Mexico with their children, where they decided to officially divorce, according to the source.
“They decided to finally bite the bullet, with the support of their conscious uncoupling guru. They both felt the time had come to move forward with their new relationships. They’ve decided to draw up a ‘family schedule’, which they will both have to adhere to once the divorce is finalised. It will include at least three family holidays a year, designated joint days out with the kids and even ‘date nights’ to discuss the children and remain on good terms. Both Jennifer and Brad are expected to be in attendance at Apple’s 11th birthday next month.
“[They] have been struggling to move forward with their relationship because she couldn’t handle always coming second to Gwyneth. She put a huge amount of pressure on Chris to make a statement to show his commitment to her, which he wasn’t prepared to do until now.”
The news of the divorce comes hot on the heels of Gyneth Paltrow’s attempt at using the “Food Stamp Challenge” for a week, and only spending $29 on food for her for an entire week. Paltrow took the $29 to the supermarket and came home with a dozen eggs, black beans and brown rice, and a variety of fruits and vegetables including seven limes. Apparently, no healthy and nutritious meat products were purchased at all. Paltrow took to her GOOP blog in order to break the news.
“As I suspected, we only made it through about four days, when I personally broke and had some chicken and fresh vegetables (and in full transparency, half a bag of black licorice). My perspective has been forever altered by how difficult it was to eat wholesome, nutritious food on that budget, even for just a few days — a challenge that 47 million Americans face every day, week, and year.”
However, instead of trying to reflect on her failure to complete the full week living just on food stamps, Gwyneth Paltrow decided to deflect onto the pay gap between men and women in the workplace.
“I am even more outraged that there is still not equal pay in the workplace. Sorry to go on a tangent, but many hardworking mothers are being asked to do the impossible: Feed their families on a budget which can only support food businesses that provide low-quality food. The food system in our beautiful country needs to be subjected to a heavy revision — it is a cyclical problem, with repercussions that we all feel. I’m not suggesting everyone eat organic food from some high horse in the sky. I’m saying everyone should be able to afford fresh, real food. And if women were paid an equal wage, families might have more of a choice in the grocery aisles, not to mention in the rest of their lives.”
