Last week, Chris Martin spoke about his split from Gwyneth Paltrow in a candid interview with the BBC radio.

The full transcript of the interview - released today - reveals a surprising twist to the "conscious uncoupling" saga, as Chris apparently feels his own emotional issues caused his marriage to fail:

"About two years ago I was a mess," Chris says in the interview. "Really because I was unable to enjoy the things we are good at it and I can't enjoy the great things around me because I am burdened by this."

When Chris says "we," it's unclear if he's referring to his bandmates or his wife, but Coldplay hasn't broken up, so we think it's safe to say that "burden" he's talking about is Gwyneth.

There's been a lot of talk about the "conscious uncoupling" of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin in recent weeks, but none of it has come from Chris himself.

Chris finally opened up about his highly publicized separation during a recent BBC radio interview, speaking honestly about the heartbreak he's experienced and his efforts to stay on friendly terms with the mother of his two children.

"Everyone in their lives goes through challenges," said the Coldplay singer when asked about his marriage. "Whether it's love or money or kids or illness. There have been a lot of false headlines recently, but this would be a real one."

Chris did not address rumors that he cheated with Alexa Chung or that he and Gwyneth participated in an open marriage in which both parties were free to pursue romantic relationships outside of their relationship.

Gwyneth Paltrow may be pretending for all the world like she's totally cool with "consciously uncoupling" from husband Chris Martin, but according to sources close to the couple, Paltrow wanted desperately to hide her marital troubles from the public.

According to the New York Post, Gwyneth had every intention of pretending she and Martin were happily married, even thought they both wanted to go their separate ways.

"It was [Martin's] idea to announce the split," says the anonymous insider. "They had drifted apart and there was no chance they'd get back together, so he felt it was wrong to go on pretending."

We hate to say this, but Gwyneth may have had the right idea about keeping things quiet.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin wanted the world to believe they were above the ugliness of divorce and prove to us through "conscious uncoupling" that married couples can split peacefully and remain best friends. While that may be true, it seems Chris and Gwyneth can't pull it off.

Countless affair rumors have emerged since the couple separated, alleging that Chris and Gwyneth were both sleeping around regularly. Now it seems the source of some of these details may have been none other than Gwyneth herself. 

Radar Online reports that Chris believes Gwyneth is the one leaking rumors about his affairs and feeding the press lies about what a negligent father he is. 

A source close to Chris says he suspects Gwyneth of launching a full-blown smear campaign in "an effort to sully his image and make him look less sympathetic.”

And why would Gwinnie go to such trouble? So that she can cash in big time, of course!

Another day, another name added to the long list of women Chris Martin slept with during his marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow.

Chris Martin: Shocked!

Multiple sources close to Saturday Night Live have confirmed to the New York Post that Martin had an affair with a young woman who worked for the show beginning in 2011.

Martin and the anonymous woman met after his band performed on SNL.

"Everyone was talking about it because he was openly flirting with her at one of the show after-parties," said one insider.

This, of course, was several years before Chris and Gwyneth began their "conscious uncoupling" and serves as an indication of just how long these two have been sleeping around on each other.

Gwyneth has been accused of carrying on affairs with several different men during her marriage to Martin, including billionaire Jeff Soffer and actor Donovan Leitch.

Not long after his split from Gwyneth Paltrow was announced, rumors of an affair between Chris Martin and Alexa Chung began to circulate.

As more intel emerged the situation began to take shape.

Several tabloids reported that Chris and Gwyneth enjoyed an "open relationship" which allowed for meaningless sex with strangers, but Chris broke the rules by falling in love with Chung.

Now it seems the appeal of a woman who's not Gwyneth is so strong that Chris can't resist Alexa even during his "conscious uncoupling" period with Gwynnie. 

Like Chris, Alexa hails from England originally and she still lives there most of the year. Or at least she did.

Star magazine reports that since Martin has begun (slowly) breaking things off with Paltrow, Chung has been spending more time in LA.

Chris has apparently fallen so hard for Alexa he refuses even to stick around for Gwyneth's meditation/primal scream therapy sessions or whatever she's got him doing.

Another day, another set of bizarre details about the relationship between Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow.

We've already heard that Gwyneth and Chris had an open marriage  and it's been reported that both cheated extensively particularly toward the end of their time together, but new information surfacing today makes it seem as though Gwyneth was doing the majority of the sleeping around...and even that stress outlet didn't didn't stop her from taking out her rage on Chris.

It seems Gwyneth's infidelities didn't stop after she cheated with Donovan Leitch. New reports emerging today allege that Gwyneth was also involved with Glee producer Brad Falchuk.

The two reportedly began sneaking around on their respective spouses after Gwyneth filmed her first cameo on the Fox series in 2010.

For his part, Chris was probably just happy to have Gwyneth out of the house. Sources close to the couple say Gwyneth had a bad habit of openly mocking the Coldplay frontman, even in front of his family and friends.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin may be struggling to keep the embarrassing secrets of their divorce private, but their less famous friends are more than happy to share details of the couples' long-deteriorating marriage.

Gwyneth Paltrow: People Magazine

Anonymous sources close to the couple tell People magazine that Chris and Gwyneth's marriage was "falling apart" for years before they announced their split.

"They were physically separated and emotionally," says one insider. "They have been on and off for many years."

The source goes on to detail the ways in which personality and lifestyle differences influenced Chris and Gwyneth's decision "consciously uncouple."

Martin is described as "the kind of person who is always in a T-shirt," while Gwyneth unsurprisingly is "much more glam."

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin might be making us sick with their snooty talk about "conscious uncoupling," but it turns out the famous couple may be involved in a down-and-dirty divorce, just like how us peasants do it.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ that Chris and Gwyneth are indeed splitting amicably, but not for the reasons they've claimed.

Turns out the couple is terrified of having its dirty laundry aired in public and both parties are worried that if they fight over money or custody court documents could end up in the tabloids.

So what kind of secrets are they concealing? Well, for starters, Gwyneth's affair with Donovan Leitch and Chris' relationship with Alexa Chung are still just the subject of rumor and could seriously damage the couples' reputations if the affairs were confirmed in court.

We can only guess as to what else the Martin-Paltrows could be hiding, because Gwinnie is notoriously protective of her public image and will likely stop at nothing to keep her ugly side as private as possible.

As you've likely heard by now, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are divorcing, but prefer to use terms like "conscious uncoupling," because, well, they're obnoxious.

While the rest of us may find Chris and Gwyneth's pretentiousness completely nauseating, they have at least one celeb defending their actions.

Cameron Diaz told Extra recently that she's "proud" of her bestie's breakup, adding that she loves the douchey terminology that Gwyneth's been using to describe the split.

"People go separate ways in other aspects of their life and I think it's really brave of them to phrase it that way," Cameron said.

"Leaving as a couple and deciding to stay together as parents and friends - I think it's beautiful."
