Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's split may have surprised some fans, but their so-called "conscious uncoupling" on March 25 was a long time coming. Indeed, the Iron Man actress, 41, and the Coldplay frontman, 37, had been at odds for some time, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.
Married since December 2003 with two kids, Apple 9, and Moses, 8, Paltrow and Martin announced their decision to separate late last month. In their statement about the split, they said they had been "working hard" on their relationship for "well over a year."
But behind closed doors, the spouses butted heads on how to parent their kids, Paltrow's strict diet rules, and even which city to base their family.
Insiders describe how the Goop founder frequently mocked her Grammy-winning husband's eating habits. Adding to the strain, both stars were dogged by cheating rumors throughout their marriage.
