Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin wanted the world to believe they were above the ugliness of divorce and prove to us through "conscious uncoupling" that married couples can split peacefully and remain best friends. While that may be true, it seems Chris and Gwyneth can't pull it off.
Countless affair rumors have emerged since the couple separated, alleging that Chris and Gwyneth were both sleeping around regularly. Now it seems the source of some of these details may have been none other than Gwyneth herself.
Radar Online reports that Chris believes Gwyneth is the one leaking rumors about his affairs and feeding the press lies about what a negligent father he is.
A source close to Chris says he suspects Gwyneth of launching a full-blown smear campaign in "an effort to sully his image and make him look less sympathetic.”
And why would Gwinnie go to such trouble? So that she can cash in big time, of course!
“Gwyneth believes she deserves a settlement of at least a lump sum of $25 million from Chris because he is the breadwinner and their kids will live with her most of the time,” the source said.
"Friends are bracing themselves for an ugly divorce," the insider added. Sounds like Gwyneth's plan for a civil split isn't going so well.
