Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin might be making us sick with their snooty talk about "conscious uncoupling," but it turns out the famous couple may be involved in a down-and-dirty divorce, just like how us peasants do it.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ that Chris and Gwyneth are indeed splitting amicably, but not for the reasons they've claimed.

Turns out the couple is terrified of having its dirty laundry aired in public and both parties are worried that if they fight over money or custody court documents could end up in the tabloids.

So what kind of secrets are they concealing? Well, for starters, Gwyneth's affair with Donovan Leitch and Chris' relationship with Alexa Chung are still just the subject of rumor and could seriously damage the couples' reputations if the affairs were confirmed in court.

We can only guess as to what else the Martin-Paltrows could be hiding, because Gwinnie is notoriously protective of her public image and will likely stop at nothing to keep her ugly side as private as possible.

As you've likely heard by now, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are divorcing, but prefer to use terms like "conscious uncoupling," because, well, they're obnoxious.

While the rest of us may find Chris and Gwyneth's pretentiousness completely nauseating, they have at least one celeb defending their actions.

Cameron Diaz told Extra recently that she's "proud" of her bestie's breakup, adding that she loves the douchey terminology that Gwyneth's been using to describe the split.

"People go separate ways in other aspects of their life and I think it's really brave of them to phrase it that way," Cameron said.

"Leaving as a couple and deciding to stay together as parents and friends - I think it's beautiful."

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has vowed to live as a "recluse" for the next six months following her split from husband Chris Martin, according to a new report.

The 41-year-old is determined to stay out of the public eye for at least half a year as she comes to terms with the inevitable, but still painful conscious uncoupling.

The star, who was pictured embracing former boyfriend Donovan Leitch months before her separation, is considering pulling out of any acting and promotional work.

Her focus is helping her children, Apple, 9, and 7, seven, deal with the situation.

A source said that Gwyneth has been "rocked," in particular, by the fact that "her friendships with men are being cited as possible causes for their split."

As a result, ''She has told her people she wants to retreat from any public life for six months and live as a recluse. Her focus is her kids as they face the trauma."

Why did Gwyneth Paltrow split from Chris Martin?

Because she was cheating with Donovan Leitch? Maybe. Because he was cheating with Alexa Chung? Perhaps.

But it likely wasn't a single event that led to this Conscious Uncoupling, which was announced (and subsequently mocked) on Gwyneth's GOOP website Tuesday night.

As you can tell via the following set of Gwyneth Paltrow quotes, the end has been coming for many years now.

These aren't exactly the words of someone totally in love and/or in a stable relationship, are they? Nor is this the look of soulmates who get lost in each other's eyes on a nightly basis...

We like the same stuff.

I've learned more about myself being married than anything else. I hate to say, "We've got it worked out," because you never know what's going to happen, but we laugh, we're good friends, we like to do the same stuff.

Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin broke the news of their divorce - sorry, conscious uncoupling - yesterday, rumors have been flying about why.

Most have revolved around Gwyneth, who had to deny she was having an affair with Elle Macpherson's billionaire husband, Jeff Soffer, in 2013.

As recently as last month, her rep denied that Paltrow cheated with entertainment lawyer Kevin Yorn ... and she was seen kissing Donovan Leitch.

But what about Martin's role in all this? According to a new report, it may have been his affairs that led to the uncoupling: Specifically with Alexa Chung.

Supposedly, the two shared an open marriage, with neither getting into anything serious. Until Chris got involved with Alexa Chung, and got VERY serious.

The fashion It Girl and Coldplay singer developed feelings for each other at the Glastonbury Music Festival in June of 2013, new intel suggests.

Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted kissing former flame Donovan Leitch in September 2013, six months before she and her husband Chris Martin called it quits.

Leaning in at an L.A. Dodgers game, a makeup-free and dressed-down Paltrow, 41, gave Leitch, 47, what appears to be a friendly kiss on the lips.

The British actor wrapped his arm around her neck as Paltrow and Martin's daughter Apple, 9, and son Moses, 7, sat next to them in the front row.

The GOOP blogger and Donovan Leitch go way back. They dated in the early '90s, prior to her high-profile romances with Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, who met at a Coldplay concert in 2002, tied the knot the following year. They split this week after 10 years.

"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," the new-age pair wrote in a statement announcing their "conscious uncoupling."

Fresh off of his conscious uncoupling with Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin joins NBC's The Voice for the second half of the battle rounds next week.

The Coldplay singer and mentor's simplest advice for the aspiring stars?

Whenever you're in doubt, channel your inner Mick Jagger up there.

The competition is about to get real on all four teams, and sometimes the littlest changes can make the all the differences when you're battling the best.

Martin will advise each of the singers on vocal technique, stage presence and the importance of tailoring songs to their own strengths and personality.

Following the shocking Gwyneth Paltrow-Chris Martin split, he joins fellow Voice Season 6 mentors Jill Scott, The Band Perry, Aloe Blacc and Miranda Lambert.

The Voice used to feature the Knockout Round at this point in the competition, but now The Battles: Round 2 will take its place due to the duets' intense popularity.

After the coaches pick the Top 12 from the battles, we go live April 21, with the contestants competing for viewer votes, along with the Twitter Instant Save.

Excited to see Martin on the show? How are you liking Season 6?

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, who shocked fans with their separation last night, say they are just consciously uncoupling ... whatever that means.

In a statement on Paltrow's website Goop (which crashed due to the onslaught of traffic), they jointly announced plans to "consciously uncouple."

"In many ways we are closer than we have ever been," they say, but have concluded that "while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

It all sounds very amiable ... but what is conscious uncoupling?

While Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are very free-spirited, it's difficult to take this statement seriously. You're divorcing. Stop trying to sugar coat it.

Paltrow shared a 2,000-word article by Dr. Habib Sadeghi and Dr. Sherry Sami that spells out what they're doing with their oh-so enlightened lives.

Chris Martin of Coldplay fame doesn't see anything wrong with Nicole Kidman naming her daughter Sunday or Jessica Alba calling her girl Honor.

The 31-year-old rocker - who named his son Moses and daughter Apple - tackles the subject in the new issue of Blender:

Sandra and Louis

"People make a big fuss over names. Names of babies, names of albums, names of bands. There's nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that's what you want to call your child. It's no stranger than Sarah. A name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f--k what everyone else says."

With all due respect, Chris, you're an idiot! While we get your point, we're pretty sure that l'il Chewbacca Martin would find his (her?) name a little different than Sarah Martin once the fellow second graders got wind of it. No?

We applaud Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves for choosing a name that's a bit different, yet not completely absurd. More on that later!
