Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she is using a ‘pain toolbox’ to get over her split from Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
Writing on her GOOP website, the actress said that she is using the advice of healer Vicky Vlachonis to deal with the “emotional pain” of her “conscious uncoupling” of the ‘Ghost Stories’ singer.
She wrote: “Osteopath and healer Vicky Vlachonis has helped me deal with every kind of pain imaginable over the course of our decade-long relationship (joint, muscle, postnatal, emotional, and otherwise).”
The couple broke the news of their separation via GOOP, in a post titled ‘Conscious Uncoupling’. The pair, who married in 2003, wrote: “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.”
They continued: “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 co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.”
The story has broken in the run-up to the release of Coldplay’s new album, ‘Ghost Stories’, which comes out on May 19. Last month, the band played the new album in its entirety for the first time to 800 fans on a movie soundstage at Sony Studios in Los Angeles. The gig was recorded as part of a DVD extra for the album.
