Fans were stunned when Gwyneth Paltrow, 43, and Chris Martin, 38, called it quits in early 2014 — but the Coldplay front man recently revealed the former lovebirds still have some sort of relationship.
“Just because a romantic relationship ends, doesn’t mean that the other facets of your relationship have to end, or indeed, doesn’t mean they can’t get better,” he said during an On Air with Ryan Seacrest interview on Thursday.

The pair was married for 11 years and have two children, Apple, 11, and Moses, 9. Gwyneth revealed their plans to split in a blog post titled “Conscious Uncoupling.”
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," the actress wrote on her lifestyle blog, Goop. "We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

She then added, "We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
Chris has since dated fellow actress Jennifer Lawrence, while his ex moved on with Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk.
