Attention: Huge bomb about to be dropped. According to sources, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin had an "open marriage for quite some time." I knooooow. I mean, we all had an inkling that they were more or less living separate lives (and we all heard the cheating rumors), but an open marriage? It's no wonder these two called it quits.
A source told the New York Daily News: "It had been an open relationship for quite some time. I expected this was going to happen, it was just a matter of when. They were just very different people." This news, of course, coming on the heels of rumors that Martin had been spotted cozying up to Kate Bosworth at one point, as well as a "gorgeous brunette" at a Grammy after-party; and Gwyneth getting frisky with entertainment lawyer Kevin Yorn and Elle Macpherson’s billionaire husband Jeffrey Soffer. Maybe they weren't cheating? Maybe they were just in an open marriage? (Well, with the exception of Elle Macpherson's husband.)
Although we all saw that Gwyneth and Chris didn't seem very happy or into one another, the news of their breakup is still sad. Not only do they have two beautiful children together, their beautiful children are now going to grow up hearing about their parents' affairs or open marriage or whatever it is they decided upon. Perhaps, at the end of the day, it would have better if they just called things off before they started (allegedly) becoming intimate with other people.
Gwyneth and Chris made the wise decision to escape to the Bahamas with their kids shortly before Gwyneth released the news of their breakup on Goop on Tuesday, as to avoid the media storm that obviously would follow. Smart. But I'm kinda scared for them (and more so, their kids) for when they return. It ain't gonna be pretty.
Do you think Gwyneth and Chris had an open marriage?
