London - Beyoncé Knowles is leaning on Gwyneth Paltrow for support.

The 'Pretty Hurts' hitmaker, whose marriage to rapper Jay Z is allegedly on the rocks, has reportedly been confiding in the 'Iron Man 3' actress, who split from husband Chris Martin in March after 10 years of marriage, about her relationship woes amid growing speculation she is preparing to file for divorce.

A source told Us Weekly magazine that the 32-year-old singer, who has two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with Jay, said she “has sought Gwyneth Paltrow's advice as she plans her split.”

A number of other sources claim the couple plan to follow in Gwyneth and Chris' footsteps by amicably separating after they complete their 'On The Run' tour dates in Paris in September and will continue to put on a united front afterwards.

One insider said: “The day after the announcement, Bey and Jay will be spotted together. The two will be all lovey-dovey.”

The couple have been close friends with Gwyneth, 41, and Chris - who have kids Apple, 10, and Moses, eight - for some time and Beyoncé previously praised the Oscar-winner for being an “incredible” friend.

She said: “She is incredible. She's a great friend on every level.”

The 'Mine' singer has repeatedly brushed off rumours her marriage is in crisis by posting intimate photographs of her husband, 44, and daughter on her Instagram profile, one of which she recently captioned: “My favourite hue is Jay Z Blue.”
