Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin sign divorce papers

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have reportedly signed their divorce papers two years after they split.

The estranged couple have finally set the ball rolling for the dissolution of their 10-year marriage after the Coldplay frontman took pen to paper almost 10 months after the 43-year-old actress sent through the legal documents.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Chris has signed the divorce papers. There was no underlying reason why he had left them for so long and he was planning to do it eventually."

Once the divorce has been finalised, the pair are set to receive joint legal and physical custody of their children Apple, 15, and Moses, nine, as well as evenly split assets.

The insider explained: "There is no bad blood between him and Gwyneth and they remain very close. As ever, their number one priority is their kids."

The duo, who got married in 2004, shocked the world in 2014 when they announced they were "consciously uncoupling" while they re-evaluate their relationship.

But Gwyneth, who regularly celebrates family occasions and events with her former lover, seemingly made their split final last year when she filed for divorce.

Despite the 39-year-old rocker taking almost a year to scribble on the dotted line, both wasted no time moving on with new partners.

Chris briefly dated Jennifer Lawrence before striking up a relationship with his current girlfriend Annabelle Wallis, while Gwyneth, on the other hand, has been romancing 'Glee' co-creator Brad Falchuk since August 2014.
