Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are moving to Los Angeles. The couple usually reside in London but have splashed out on a $10.45million mansion in Brentwood’s Mandeville Canyon.
British Coldplay frontman Chris and American star Gwyneth have apparently decided to make it their permanent base for the immediate future – because LA-born Paltrow wants to spend more time with her mother Blythe Danner.
‘Chris and Gwyneth have wanted to move to Los Angeles for a while,’ a source said.
‘Gwyneth spends a lot time between the UK and the U.S. and she’s exhausted. The purpose of buying the lavish home in Brentwood was to make that a semi-permanent base.
‘Gwyneth spends a lot of time away from her mom, Blythe and wants to be closer to her as she gets older. Chris was very understanding and is willing to give living in Los Angeles a chance because he’s always loved the city.’
The source went on: ‘Chris’ band won’t be working on a new album for at least another year so he has some breathing space to kick back.’
The couple are also said to be investigating local schools for their children Apple, eight and six-year-old Moses.
The source added: ‘They’re looking at placing Apple and Moses at a local private school – they both want to make sure the kids are settled and can get a good education.’
