So, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin released their separation in a truly bizarre press release. However, there is more to this story than meets the eye. I, a year previously, issued a statement to the Hollywood press that was largely ignored. See if you can see where they may have got their inspiration from:
Their Recent Press Release:
It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.

My Original Press Release:
It is with a heart full of sadness that I have decided to separate my hand from my groin. I have been working hard for well over a year, some of it with my hand on my groin, some of it with the extremities entirely separated, to see what might have been possible between the two, and I have come to the conclusion that while they obviously love each other very much they will remain separate. They are, however, and always will be a unit, and in many ways they are closer than they have ever been. They are providers first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful rugby socks and I ask for their and my space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. They have always conducted their relationship privately, and I hope that as they consciously uncouple and co-exist, they will be able to continue in the same manner.

Spooky or just downright plagiarism?
