Page Six is reporting that Seb Bishop, Goop's CEO since 2011, will be leaving the company. The split comes shortly after Gwyneth's decision to move the company base from London to Los Angeles following her announced "conscious uncoupling" from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
According to an unnamed source, "Seb was ready to move his wife, Heidi, and their children from London, and had even been looking at properties in Los Angeles, but then he abruptly quit. There is speculation that he and Paltrow disagreed on the direction of Goop, partly that she used the Web site as a vehicle for her personal life, and the 'conscious uncoupling.'"
No official comment from Bishop or Goop yet on the split, although Paltrow's rep did confirm that Bishop was leaving the company. However, he attributed it to the move from London to L.A. "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."
