(Newser) – The CEO of Gwyneth Paltrow's pretentious lifestyle site, Goop, is the latest to "consciously uncouple" from the actress. Indeed, sources tell the New York Post Seb Bishop quit after Paltrow posted her "conscious uncoupling" separation announcement on Goop, and one source says the announcement may have been part of the reason for the British entrepreneur's "abrupt" resignation: "There is speculation that he and Paltrow disagreed on the direction of Goop, partly that she used the website as a vehicle for her personal life, and the 'conscious uncoupling' announcement.”

That source insists that Bishop was OK with moving to Los Angeles—in a move to distance herself from soon-to-be-consciously-uncoupled-former-husband Chris Martin, who lives in London, Paltrow has decided to move the Goop office from London to LA. But Paltrow's rep throws cold water on the juicier rumors, and says, "Seb is still with Goop, but has decided not to relocate his family to Los Angeles. He will be transitioning out over time until a replacement is named." The Post says his departure, whether contentious or not, will be a "huge blow" to Paltrow.
