Kim and Kanye vs. Gwyneth and Chris: The lives of others!
Not quite a tale of two cities, but certainly a tale of two couples, today we are sharing a slice from the lives of the world’s richest and most famous.
Couple No. 1: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Couple No. 2 (they’re an ex-couple, to be precise):Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
First up, couple K-square. They were married in Florence, Italy, last month and already Kim and Kanye are on their second honeymoon! “They’re soaking up the sun at a private villa in Mexico,” says our fly on the wall from across the Atlantic. “Of course they’ve only just jetted out of Ireland and Prague, where they enjoyed a few days post their nuptials at the Forte di Belvedere on May 24.” So why fly across the world from Ireland to Mexico on one vacation? Well, it seems Kim and Kanye really wanted some tropical sun. Okay then! Now we’re alright with second marriages and second honeymoons, even when those events shortly precede your baby’s first birthday (yes, North West turns one on June 15). This is, after all, the way of the world when you are Kim and Kanye West. What will bother us though is if this second honeymoon is followed shortly by a massive fallout; much like Kim K’s last attempt at marriage!
On to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. Honeymoons are certainly a thing of the past for this couple. In March, they announced their intention of “consciously uncoupling” — as opposed to “separating” or “getting a divorce” like most others do. Now, having decided to split up, they’re not fighting or throwing things at each other. In fact, they’re still sharing a home!“They plan to continue living together in their mansion in California, and spending weekends at their new house in Malibu for the sake of their daughter Apple (9), and son Moses (8),” says our source. “They both do a lot of business travel and so there are times when one of them will have the house to themselves. But if they are both in town, they both stay there.” Others suggest that Gwyn and Chris are trying to keep things “consistent” for the sake of the kids, but all this love while most other separated couples are hard at war can only prove one thing: “consciously uncoupling” is certainly different from getting a standard divorce. And there are no rules on how to conduct yourself when you live amongst superstars!
