In a public statement issued by Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, the pair announce that they are calling it quits. On March 25, OK! Magazine announced the break up of super couple Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay front man Chris Martin.

The break up of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin may surprise some, others are saying they saw it coming. Rumors have been buzzing regarding trouble in their relationship for some time now. The official statement released by the pair confirm just that.

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.

The statement continues on to ask fans to be respectful of their privacy since Paltrow and Martin are navigating their amicable separation while co-parenting their two children Apple, 9 and Moses, 7.

Of course the most realistic place to put a separation announcement would be on Paltrow's own blog. The blog entry, titled "Conscious Uncoupling" created so much traffic to her site that at one point it wouldn't even load for users.

What do you think of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's "conscious uncoupling?" Are you shocked that the pair have announced their separation?
