9 Exes That Are Still Cool After The Break Up

Breaking up doesn't have to be THAT hard to do.

Published October 17, 2016

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin aren’t the only ones out here to amicably split up. Though Paltrow did coin the phrase "concious uncoupling", a snapchat story form J.Lo and Marc Anthony last week showed us just how friendly their modern family is. We decided to do a deep dive and discovered that several of our faves were able to end their relationships on great terms too.

  1. Lenny Kravitz + Lisa Bonet

    Kravitz says that despite the fact that their marriage didn’t work out, Bonet is still his “best friend.”

  2. Russell Simmons + Kimora Lee Leissner

    They’ve been divorced for seven years, but they are still close as they co-parent their two daughters, Ming and Aoki. He even called her new hubby “family.”

    Divorce be damned, this couple is back in the studio working on music together.

  5. Lil Wayne + Toya Wright

    Rumor has it that these two are getting back together, but even if they aren’t, they clearly still have a special bond that outlasted their relationship.

  6. Mariah Carey + Nick Cannon

    The exes have no problem getting together for the sake of their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

    Not only is Fletcher still close to Smith, but she’s friends with his current wife Jada, too.

  8. Omarion + Apryl Jones

    Omarion posted on Instagram when they broke up, saying “We continue to love and support one another and still share a common goal to remain friends while being great parents to our children.”
