Hollywood celebs’ friendly ex-partners: How they maintain connections after a relationship

Here are the top celebrity and entertainment stories from Fox News Flash. Check out the entertainment highlights from this past week.

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! A-list actors are known for their work in front of the camera, but many famous people, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Katy Perry, and Demi Moore, find additional attention for their romantic relationships in Hollywood.

Despite some tragic breakups, some celebrities continue to have cordial relationships with their ex-partners as they go on to new partnerships.

Since the “Fifty Shades” actress began dating “Coldplay” vocalist Chris Martin in 2017, Gwyneth Paltrow and Dakota Johnson have developed a relationship and an even more contemporary family unit.

Apple and Moses were born to Martin and Paltrow, who were married for ten years until announcing their “conscious uncoupling” in 2014. After settling their divorce in 2016, they continued to serve as a role model for amicable ex-spouses in Hollywood.

The Oscar-winning actress showed her ability to get along with her ex, his girlfriend, and her new husband, Brad Falchuk, when the group was photographed in the Hamptons in 2019.

Martin joined Paltrow on her honeymoon in the Maldives after her September 2018 nuptials to Falchuk, while Johnson reportedly went with the family on a ski trip to Aspen, Colorado that same year.

The creator of the Goop lifestyle company previously spoke of her “passion” for Johnson in a 2020 Harpers Bazaar interview.

I adore her. Given that it’s somewhat unorthodox, I can understand how it may come across as odd. However, I believe that after going through it repeatedly in this situation, I simply adore her,” she stated.

What else can you add in instead of being resistant to or feeling insecure by? I always start to think of the ampersand sign. Leaning into something like that has so much potential.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin were married for 10 years and have two children together, but announced their separation as a "conscious uncoupling" in 2014. They attended the Sean Penn andamp;amp; Friends HELP HAITI HOME Gala benefiting J/P HRO presented by Giorgio Armani at Montage Beverly Hills in 2014.

“Maybe I think about relationships like that differently because I grew up in my family,” Johnson told Vanity Fair in June.

Her parents, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, were married briefly in 1976 and once again in 1989 before divorcing in 1996. Griffith was previously married to Steven Bauer, and the former couple has one son.

Melanie went on to marry Antonio Banderas from 1996 before a divorce was finalized in 2015. They also have a daughter named Stella.

Maybe growing up in my family has changed the way I view relationships like that.

The five marriages to four different women that Dakota Johnson Don, 72, has had, two of which were quickly dissolved, total five. He married Kelley Phleger in 1999, and the two are parents to three kids.

In reference to her unusual upbringing, Dakota remarked, “We were all cool with each other.” Of course there were moments when it wasn’t cool, but I went through it and don’t want to again.

Miranda Kerr and Katy Perry are good friends as well; in the past, Kerr acknowledged that she “loves” the “Firework” singer, who is currently engaged to her ex-husband, Orlando Bloom, 45.

Katy Perry has a close bond with Miranda Kerr, who was married to her fiance, Orlando Bloom, for three years before they divorced in 2013. Perry and Bloom were pictured in 2021.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor and Kerr, 39, started dating in 2007. In June 2010, the couple announced their engagement. The next month, they got hitched.

Their kid Flynn was born in January 2011 by the former Victoria’s Secret model. They admitted that their marriage had broken down in 2013 and that their divorce had been formalized before year’s end.

In 2017, the Australian supermodel wed Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel. Since then, Hart and Myles, two more boys, have been born to the couple.

On her own talk program in November 2020, Kerr stated she was “grateful” for a pleasant family situation when chatting with Drew Barrymore.

“I adore Katy, and I just feel so thrilled that Orlando has found someone who makes his heart so happy, because at the end of the day, having a happy mother and father for Flynn is just the most important thing,” says Katy.

On Valentine’s Day in 2019, Miranda Kerr Bloom popped the question to Perry, 37, and the pair welcomed their first child, Daisy Dove, in August 2020.

Because having a happy mother and father for Flynn is ultimately the most important thing, Kerr added, “I adore Katy and I just feel so thrilled that Orlando has found someone that makes his heart so happy.”

I’m just so happy that Orlando and Katy connected, and I’m so happy that I met my amazing husband. We all have a lot of respect for one another.

She added: “When it comes to special occasions when we have to be together, we work it out, so we have compromises that we work out together.”

During an Instagram Live chat between the ladies to launch a new product from Kerrs Kora Organics skincare line in April 2021, Perry wore a blue floral robe she received from Miranda for Christmas.

Kerr told Perry the cover-up looked “beautiful” on her and was “so glad” she loved the gift.

“One of the great things about being close with Miranda is that I get to try out all her products, especially when her son, who’s 10 years old, comes home with them and I look through his little backpack,” the “American Idol” judge said .

Navigating divorce from a partner was difficult for Will Smith who split from his first wife, Sheree Zampino, in 1995. The former couple have a son, Trey, and Zampino has credited Smiths second wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, with helping keep their co-parenting relationship strong.

Zampino told Fox News Digital that while her romantic relationship with Will didnt work, they “made the shift beautifully” into co-parents.

Will Smith and Sheree Zampino divorced in 1995 after three years of marriage. The former couple attended the 60th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade on December 1, 1991 at KTLA Studios in Hollywood, California.

I’m not claiming there weren’t any issues or hiccups, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star said. But in terms of co-parenting, I believe that we were more successful—much more successful—than in a marriage dynamic. To be coparents, we were placed on this planet. We did it, and we’re still doing that. We adore one another, and it has been wonderful. It has been fortunate.

Zampino was the first guest to ever participate on Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch series “Red Table Talk” in 2018, where they talked about their difficult beginning as Jada started dating Will when he was still legally married but not yet divorced.

I probably should have turned back because I didn’t comprehend divorce or marriage, she remarked. You think, Zampino responded in jest.
Zampino remembered Trey’s first encounter with Pinkett Smith.

“When Trey got home, I asked him, ‘How was Miss Jada?’ I truly liked her, Mommy, he said. Zampino said something that made Pinkett Smith feel things. I’m grateful that you love my child.

Pinkett Smith, who also has a son named Jaden and a daughter named Willow with Will, talked on some of the challenges she has faced as a mother in 2021.

She added on her talk show, “I would say becoming a mother wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. “I would say that smoothing out my views about, you know, the relationship between Sheree and I was another problem. That was a genuine procedure.

It took roughly 20 years for our bond to develop into a true sisterhood, she continued.

“We were all truly transformed by it. Having a blended family and settling into a comfortable place brought about ease. And having total, unwavering acceptance,” she said. Ree accepts me and all of my craziness, for example. I am okay with her and all of her bullshit.

In addition, Zampino has kept up her support for her ex-husband, posting an photo of the former pair to Instagram after he won the best actor Oscar. She complimented Will and said that family should always come first rather than making any comments about Will hitting Chris Rock during the award show. Iconic Night! Again, congratulations. When 1 wins, we all win. She captioned the picture with “#family1st.”

Even after divorcing more than 20 years ago, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, 67, have remained close friends. She’s also grown to be a devoted friend to his 44-year-old wife Emma Heming Willis.

Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah are the couple’s three children; they were previously married from 1987 to 2000.
