Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are moving to Los Angeles.
The couple usually reside in London but have splashed out on a $10.45m (€8.35m) mansion in Brentwood’s Mandeville Canyon and decided to make it their permanent base for the immediate future because Gwyneth wants to spend more time with her mother Blythe Danner.
A source told RadarOnline: “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. 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 reportedly investigating local schools for their kids 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."
