Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin had a pretty bizarre marriage. They tried to keep their relationship really private, but there were always rumors that they were on the rocks. When they finally announced that their marriage was over in 2014, it wasn’t too much of a shock because all of the signs of a breakup were already there. Still though, these two managed to stick it out for 10 years, which is quite impressive. Since it’s been a couple of years since these two threw in the towel, we have 12 things you didn’t know about their relationship:
They met backstage at a Coldplay concert in New York City back in October 2002. His band was on tour promoting their album, A Rush of Blood to the Head, at the time and Gwyneth, who had just lost her father a few weeks prior, attended the concert and was invited backstage to meet the band afterwards. Prior to them meeting, tabloids were already reporting that the two were dating because Chris had said during a concert in L.A. that one of his songs was for his girlfriend, Gwyneth Paltrow. He was reportedly expecting her to show up at that concert and was disappointed when she didn’t show.
