So admittedly we'd never witnessed a "Conscious Uncoupling" before, but we'd sort of imagined it would involve, er, spending less time with your former significant other?
But now for newly separated Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, who have recently moved not only to the same neighborhood, but just across the road from one another.

The pair, who announced their separation back in March, will now be living opposite one another in the Brentwood area of LA, after 37-year-old Chris bought a swanky new pad for a cool $6.75 million. The idea is that he and his 42-year-old ex will be able to share custody of their children, daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, 8.
Oh, and if you thought that was unconventional, guess who threw Gwynnie a birthday bash in September? Yup, it was Chris, who opened up his house to guests including Kate Hudson, Maya Rudolph, Gavin Rossdale and Nicole Richie.

Not only that, but reports also surfaced last week that Gwynnie was over the moon about Chris' new love interest Jennifer Lawrence and wanted them all to be BFFs. Or something like that.
While it might seem a very modern solution — and easy, provided you have enough money to both buy ENORMOUS pads — we're not buying it. Doesn't Gwyn want to rip all of the singer's clothes apart and dump them on the lawn in a jealous rage? No? Maybe that's just us then!
