The hip-hop impresario has used a combination of charisma, smarts and showmanship to elevate himself from modest means to the top of an empire that encompasses music, spirits, clothing, television and more.

But he begs to differ about that first distinction.

“I’m the average person

I started looking at business at the age of 12, [from] delivering newspapers to working in gas station bathrooms, or even doing things like being a background dancer or a stylist. Whatever I could do to get close to the industry”

Gwyneth Paltrow on why she split with husband Chris Martin

It’s been nine months she ‘consciously uncoupled’ from husband Chris Martin.

And in a revealing new interview, Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up about why she decided to separate from the Coldplay front man.

The 42-year-old actress told Marie Claire: ‘There was nothing dramatic or anything. I had built my life on trying to be all things to all people, and I just couldn’t do it anymore.’

‘I really had the sense that I wasn’t allowed to have needs, and I had to prove my specialness or self-worth by doing all this stuff and taking care of everybody else, and I just sort of hit a wall.’

The Iron Man actress remains close to her former beau and also explained how important it is that they maintain a solid friendship.

She revealed: ‘We’ve worked really  hard to get to [this] point. But we’re very, very close, and it’s so nice. I feel like it’s, in a way, the relationship we were meant to have.’

Paltrow and Martin, 37, have two children together, daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, eight.
