[BlindGossip] Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are not the only celebrity couple who have been able to keep their breakup on the DL. This other dual-celebrity couple has also called it quits after several years of marriage. The husband and wife are each very successful in their chosen professions, though she tends to sample other creative outlets. Both are award nominees/winners, but she is the much more high-profile of the two. The breakup happened several months ago, but they are stalling the public announcement until later this year while the finances and custody arrangements are being worked out. We expect that it will be a very intelligent and civilized divorce.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just announced their separation (or “Concious uncoupling”). However, did you know that there was an unannounced separation during the summer of 2011? Let’s talk about it!
They had already decided to separate early that summer. They had their attorneys quietly working through the details. They were living separately and were rarely photographed together.
However, there was a leak. Fearful that the story was going to break, the couple did an odd public outing in London, walking in and out of shops with Martin lugging an oversized tote with Goopy’s married initials prominently displayed on it. (See? We’re still married! The embroidered initials on my giant LL Bean tote prove it!). For two people who are never photographed together, that was just weird. Gwyneth then went off on vacation with her godfather, Stephen Spielberg and the kids… but without Chris Martin.
Yes, Stephen Spielberg is Goopy’s godfather. But, we want to make it clear that, other than having the most famous director in Hollywood as her godfather and a famous actress as a mother and a famous producer as a father, she totally made it on her own. Do you hear that? On her own!
Anyway… Paltrow and Martin did separate that summer and were planning on divorcing, but they wound up getting back together (we don’t know why) and sticking it out for a couple of more years.
They are officially separated now. Given that they already worked out the money, property and child custody issues two years ago, we believe that this will, indeed, be a very quiet divorce.
By the way, the phrase “intelligent and civilized” was a significant clue in our original blind item. In an interview after she moved to London, Gwyneth dissed American capitalism and then said “I like living here because I don’t fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans.” Yes, she really said that.
Now, we don’t even know what “the bad side of American psychology” means. It probably has a meaning that only people as intelligent and civilized as Gwyneth Paltrow understand. And as far as that capitalism thing is concerned… well, Goopy, you are welcome to distribute your overpaid earnings, inherited wealth, married wealth, and half-dozen luxury properties to the great unwashed masses any time.
Congratulations to Clare, who was first with the correct answer! She gets kudos from us and a high five from Steven Spielberg!
