Divorce Amicable

Because It HAS to Be

Gwyneth Paltrow
and Chris Martin will end their marriage amicably ... in large part because they've each done things during the marriage they DON'T want ending up in legal docs.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... this is NOT a separation. They are definitely getting divorced. But both are concerned about serious PR damage if the divorce turns ugly, and they don't want to open the door to media reports about them straying from the marriage as well as other issues.

The concern ... even if the case doesn't go to trial ... any allegation put down in legal docs could end up getting leaked ... and both Gwyneth and Chris agree ... that's the worst case scenario for both of them.

The soon-to-be-exes even spent the weekend together ... with friends ... in the Bahamas -- more proof this is gonna be totally civil.

0331-gwyneth-chris-SplashWe're told the divorce will be relatively quick and there are no apparent conflicts.  They will not fight over money and they won't fight over custody.

I'm sure it's quite a relief for him to finally be done with that pompous twit. How he put up with her and her infidelity for so long is beyond me. She was not only disrespectful with her actions but she also devalued the marriage in the media. She seems so wrapped up in her own ego that she's incapable of having a lasting relationship. At least the kids have one normal, level headed parent. Who knows, now that she's a single divorcee maybe she'll rekindle her BFF relationship with Madonna. Cuz you know, two middle aged ladies on prowl now... @@

That disgusting, conceited slut Gwenyth is concerned that leaked legal docs will reveal she is a chronic bed-wetter ha ha. With chlamydia and genital warts ha ha. And loose bowels ha ha from all that weird crap she eats.

Yup, nothing like an amicable divorce to maintain the fake image portrayed to the public.

They're worried about "serious PR damage"? That's laughable! Gwyneth Paltrow was voted Star Magazine's "most hated celebrity" in 2013. I think it's a little too late for worrying. People already love to hate her and don't blame Chris for wanting out.

Who cares. Paltrow is not relevant in any way. Getting divorced and what a big deal. It's not. Nice photo.

All entertainers that are considering divorce should do this. Especially if they have children. Once you have children s your happiness is important but becomes secondary.
