Chris Martin on Gwyneth Paltrow Split: It's Real!

by at .

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. 

While Gwyneth announced that she was separating from her husband of eleven years via her GOOP website back in March, Martin has kept quiet on the subject until now. 

Rumors about the cause of the split have run rampant in the month since, with both Chris and Gwyneth being publicly accused of infidelity.

Though Chris' BBC interview won't be available in its entirety until Monday, it's believed that this is Martin's attempt to set the record straight, put false reports to rest and move on from what is believed to be an increasingly messy separation.
