Los Angeles: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin have legally finalised their separation.
The pair have formally ended their 12-year marriage and as part of their private settlement, have given up their rights to spousal support, reported Us magazine. They will also determine child custody, visitation and support amongst themselves.
The resolution was reached when the 43-year-old "Iron Man" actress asked a judge to officially end her marriage after Martin, 39, deliberately failed to respond to her divorce petition because they had already reached an agreement about the terms of their split in private.
In doing so, the duo, who share joint custody of their son Moses, 10, and daughter Apple, 12, ought to be able to keep the specific details of their agreement between themselves. In 2014, Paltrow and Martin released a much-discussed statement via her Goop site announcing that they were "consciously uncoupling".
Since then, however, the pair have remained on good terms and have even been on holiday together with their children.
