Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have finally wrapped up the smoothest celebrity marital breakup of all time as the pair are now officially divorced.
People magazine has reported that the pair of conscious uncouplers reached a divorce settlement back in May and on Thursday had their divorce finalised by an LA judge.
Two years after they first announced their split, the former couple have made a written agreement regarding their property and child support and have decided that neither of them will ever receive spousal support from the other.
The Coldplay frontman and lifestyle guru were married for 10 years and have remained close despite their breakup for the sake of their two children Apple and Moses.
During a recent interview in Cannes, Gwyneth admitted that while their split had been “difficult” she is glad they have managed to work together for their kids.
She said: "As anybody who has been divorced knows, you have to put a lot aside to maintain the family and the practicalities of what that might mean and sometimes that's quite tough on a personal level."
"It's a commitment I make every day to my children and their father even though we're not in a romantic relationship."

It seems Gwyneth Paltrow is back in the driving seat after her ‘conscious uncoupling’ from hubby Chris Martin, as she lands a very exciting movie role!
The Oscar winner will co-star with 12 Years a Slave actor Chiwetel Ejiofor in the high-profile remake of the Spanish movie The Secret In Their Eyes, which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009.
The crime thriller will be shot this autumn in Boston.
Ejiofor will play a former MI-5 agent who returns to Boston on a joint task force with the FBI, still obsessed by the unsolved murder that continues to haunt him.
Gwyneth has reportedly been lined up to play Irene, who works in the Justice Department.
The movie has an impressive crew attached already, with Billy Ray – the Oscar nominated writer of Captain Phillips and The Hunger Games – set to direct from his own screenplay adapted from Juan José Campanella’s version.
When Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced their decision to consciously uncouple, there were whispers about the real reason for it.
Gwyn was almost immediately accused of cheating with Donovan Leitch because of a picture of the pair greeting each other at a baseball game.
We weren’t convinced – and we were definitely more interested in the less gossiped story regarding Chris and Alexa Chung.
The two had reportedly gotten close, sharing a love for obscure music and London, and were even spotted having late night milkshakes last summer.
This week a tweet appeared from a diner who spotted the pair having a cosy dinner together at a New York restaurant.
So were the gossip columnists right? Was Chung the spark for the Martin-Paltrow divorce?
