Cheating Gwyneth Paltrow Divorce Rumors: Seeking Coldplay's Chris Martin Forgiveness After 'Vanity Fair' Affair? [UPDATE]
Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay's Chris Martin may soon get a divorce. Vanity Fair is reportedly planning to expose the actress' rumored affair with billionaire Jeff Soffer. Will the alleged cheating issue cause the couple to divorce or will the actress' supposed transgressions be forgiven?
Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair have been at war since it was revealed that the magazine was planning to expose her alleged affair with Jeff Soffer. Is the Martin/Paltrow marriage strong enough to survive the scandal? Paltrow recently spoke to Glamour, where she admitted that she and her husband were having martial troubles:
"It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple. I asked my dad once, 'How did you and Mum stay married for 33 years?' And he said, 'Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time'. And I think that’s what happens. When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person’s saying, 'come on, we can do this', you carry on."
She did manage to squeeze out a few good words about her husband during the interview, adding:
"We laugh, we’re good friends, we like to do the same stuff. I’m a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, 'Where are you? You should be home by now.' I never place demands on him because I think he’s a really talented man and he’s putting something good into the world."
Paltrow may have been laying down the ground work for a cheating defense for some time now. While promoting her film, Thanks for Sharing, she told Refinery 29 that she thinks she would be forgiven for cheating:
“I think that if the idea of being committed to someone is important to you, you begin to value certain parts of your social life over another. No couple is the same, and as such, every couple takes on different challenges. I would like to think that I would be forgiving and/or forgiven, but I can’t give an honest answer as I haven’t really experienced that.”
