Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are reportedly finalizing their divorce settlement. Although Gwyneth filed over a year ago, Chris never filed a response. As a result, the judge issued a recent warning that Gwyneth would be awarded a default judgment (granting what she asked for in the petition) if action wasn’t taken in the case.
According to TMZ, even though the court case has laid dormant, the divorce has been negotiated between the couple’s representatives all along. Gwyneth and Chris did not want to file numerous legal documents that would be made public until they had settled all of the issues between them.
TMZ further reports that the divorce will be final as soon as one last document is signed, which is a mere formality. The couple has not been available to sign it because they have been in Peru for their kids’ spring break. Thus, it is expected that their divorce will be final very quickly.
Gwyneth and Chris have agreed to joint custody of their two children – Apple, 11, and Moses, 9. The property division took longer, but from all appearances, it is one of the most amicable divorces ever. Gwyneth posted a video of Chris surprising Moses by taking him onstage during a Coldplay concert in Peru. She captioned the vid, “When your dad wishes you an early 10th birthday at work…#coldplaylima.” Chris also had Apple and a few friends come on the stage while the crowd sang “Feliz Cumpleaños” to Moses.
