Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly wanted to keep her marriage breakdown secret.
The Iron Man 3 actress - who announced last month she and Chris Martin were separating after 10 years of marriage - was said to have been keen to allow people to believe they had no problems, but the Coldplay frontman felt it was "wrong" to pretend everything was fine.
"It was his idea to announce the split. They had drifted apart, and there was no chance they'd get back together, so he felt it was wrong to keep pretending," a source told The New York Post.
The former couple - who have children Apple, nine, and Moses, eight, together - have been holidaying in the Bahamas since news of their separation was announced. They broke the news with a statement on Gwyneth's lifestyle website GOOP in a post titled "Conscious Uncoupling."
Another Hollywood couple has called it quits.
Gwyneth Paltrow took to lifestyle website GOOP to announce that she and her husband Chris Martin, who fronts British band Coldplay, have called time on their marriage of ten years:
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
Lamar Odom is determined to win back Khloe Kardashian.
The 34-year-old basketball player has opened up about his failed marriage to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and admits he isn't ready to give up on their relationship, despite her having filed for divorce over three months ago.
"I want to make it work with Khloe. I'm going to see see Khloe. I'm going to see her soon," he told InTouch.
The couple - who were married in 2009 - split list year after a number of women claimed to have had relationships with Lamar at the same time as he was also facing allegations of drug abuse, but after spending a short period of time playing basketball in Spain, he's now back in the US after suffering a back injury and is dedicated to cleaning up his act and winning back his wife. "I'm focusing on getting better," he added.
Khloe Kardashian is "not through" her marriage breakdown.
The 29-year-old star filed for divorce from Lamar Odom in December amid allegations he had cheated on her and used drugs, and she admits she finds it hard watching her reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians at the moment because it is "really hard" to see her personal life laid bare.
Khloe's admission came on 2Day FM's Jules, Merrick and Sophie with Mel B show, when presenter Sophie Monk asked, "I watched all that stuff go down [on the show] and I cried, and you weren't even crying. Are you through that now? Do you feel better and is it all sorted?"
"It's definitely not anything I'm through. I'm going through it, but I'm not through it. It's really hard to watch yourself on TV too. It's definitely different in that the world has to watch too. It's definitely not the easiest thing to do but it's my life now I guess," Khloe replied.
Paula Patton is "open" to giving Robin Thicke another chance.
The Baggage Claim actress split from the "Blurred Lines" singer last month, and though she was reported to have insisted to him she wanted a divorce, insiders say she is now reconsidering her stance.
Sources told gossip website TMZ that the estranged couple - who have been married for eight years and have a three-year-old son, Julian, together - have been talking "constantly" and are now discussing what Robin needs to do to convince Paula they can make their marriage work. The 38-year-old actress is said to be particularly impressed with how much of a good dad Robin, 36, has continued to be since they separated, keeping in touch while on the road and seeing their little boy whenever he can.
According to the source, Paula hasn't yet hired a divorce lawyer and has no plans to do so. However, though their conversations have been "smooth and cordial," one thing the Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star is unhappy with is Robin's public declarations of love for her.
Paula Patton felt "utterly disrespected" by Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus' MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) performance.
The 38-year-old actress reportedly had a huge argument with the "Blurred Lines" singer following the show, saying the raunchy routine - which featured 21-year-old Miley twerking against her spouse - was insulting to her, particularly as it took place in front of a huge national TV audience. And according to TMZ, Paula was particularly "enraged" because Miley improvised the performance without warning, but her husband was happy to play along.
The couple - who announced their separation after eight years of marriage earlier this week - began arguing constantly after the ceremony in August, with the actress particularly furious with Robin's insistence on continuing to party at clubs and frequently being pictured with various women.
Katy Perry and John Mayer split up because of her upcoming world tour.
The "Dark Horse" singer, 29, was reportedly dumped by the singer-songwriter, 32, because they were arguing a lot and she is "stressed" about her Prismatic concerts, which are scheduled to kick off in Belfast, Northern Ireland in early May and will see her travel across three continents until the end of the year.
"She's stressed about the tour, they've been fighting. It is probably for the best, because she is going to be on tour for forever. Of course this happens all the time, I can't keep track anymore. But for now they are done," a source said.
The duo, who released the romantic duet "Who You Love" in December, first began dating in summer 2012 and had an on/off relationship until things became serious between them last year, after Katy publicly admitted she was "still madly in love with him." A friend predicted they could reunite again, saying, "Not sure how long it will last this time but yes, it is off for now." But a third source said, "They've had rough patches, but this may be for good."
Katy Perry and John Mayer have split up.
The "Roar" hitmaker- who was seen with a ring on her engagement finger earlier this month, sparking speculation she was set to wed again - reportedly called off her romance with the 36-year-old singer "within the last few days," sources told E! News.
It is unclear why the couple have separated, and neither of them have commented on the reports as yet.
Katy - who was previously married to Russell Brand - began dating John in summer 2012 and they split briefly last March before reconciling. The pair recently recorded a duet, "Who You Love," for John's latest album Paradise Valley and Katy, 29, previously said she was thrilled to work with him because she was a fan of his even before they began dating: "I've been a fan of John's for years before I got to actually kiss him. I've been such a fan, I think he's so incredibly talented and gifted and a genius songwriter. So to be a part of anything he was doing was just natural."
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have split.
The "Blurred Lines" hitmaker and his actress wife have decided to end their marriage after almost nine years together. "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time," they said In a joint statement to People.com.
Robin, 36, and Paula, 38, first met when they were teenagers and married in 2005. They have one son together, Julian Fuego Thicke, three. The split comes after Robin was seen dancing closely with a mystery woman after a performance at Club 79 in Paris in January. In September last year another woman, Lana Scolaro, claimed Robin had kissed her at a party in New York. "I went to the bathroom, and when I came out he was standing there... He turned off the lights so no one could see us, and he started making out with me. He was grabbing me. He was like, 'I want to get you into bed' ... His hands were everywhere," she said.
The "Give it 2 U" star was also photographed with his hand on Lana's bottom, reflected in a mirror.
Harry Styles has split from Kendall Jenner.
The One Direction heart throb is said to have broken up with the Kardashian sister due to their work commitments, with him kept busy with the band and "focusing on her modeling."
"Kendall has been focusing on her modeling and Harry is preparing for work on the band's fourth album, as well as their stadium tour. The reality is that with everything they both have going on it's impossible to sustain anything serious," a source said.
Despite their recent break up, the pair are reportedly "still friends" after their relationship came to an end without any "major" arguments, and they could try again in the future. "There's been no major fallout. They're definitely still friends and haven't ruled anything out in the future," the source added.
While his relationship might be over, the "Story of My Life" hitmaker recently insisted the group is as strong as ever with no plans to call it quits.
