Gwyneth Paltrow, Johnny Weir, Mila Kunis
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are not divorcing. They are “consciously uncoupling.” That, anyway, was how the actress described her split from the Coldplay singer, which she posted this week on her lifestyle website, goop.com (where readers can also shop for $85 salmon-roe hand cream and download kale recipes). The announcement got so much traffic that the site crashed. Paltrow admitted the couple had lived apart for a year while trying to save their marriage, adding, “while we love each other very much, we will remain separate.” The couple have two children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7. News of the marriage’s demise comes after a year of tabloid speculation of marital trouble and Paltrow’s links to several other men. Earlier this year, Vanity Fair—under intense pressure from Paltrow—decided not to run what was rumored to be a major exposé on her alleged infidelities.
The knives have come out in figure skater Johnny Weir’s bitter divorce battle. The former Olympian announced divorce proceedings against attorney Victor Voronov this month amid accusations from both sides of domestic violence. Weir claims he suffered “crippling” mental damage from the marriage, but Voronov’s representative this week countered that it was the figure skater who was arrested after biting his husband during a violent domestic dispute earlier this year, and that the case was only dropped by Voronov “at the urging of Johnny” so that the skater could serve as an NBC commentator at February’s Sochi Olympics. “Victor went along with that, not know[ing] that Johnny had already filed a complaint for divorce,” said Voronov’s lawyer.
Mila Kunis is expecting her first child with Ashton Kutcher, says EOnline.com. The couple, who have been friends since meeting on the set of That ’70s Show in 1998, have been dating for two years. Kutcher, 36, last year finalized his divorce from Demi Moore, 51, his wife of eight years. Moore’s inability to have children reportedly played a role in the couple’s breakup. A friend confirmed that Kunis, 30, was pregnant after she attended a prenatal yoga class. “They are both very, very happy,” said the friend.
