In the latest update to the consciously-uncoupled-but-still-spending-a-lot-of-time-with-each-other-what-the-hell-is-going-on-guys saga, Chris Martin has opened up about life with estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow. During an interview with Valentine in the Morning, the Coldplay frontman revealed he's at peace following the couple's decision to end their 11-year marriage, noting that there's nothing much else to say about it.

Speaking on the radio show, Chris said: "The truth is... well, I don't really love talking about this stuff. But the thing we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true. We are very close. We are not together. But we're, you know, that's the truth and that's it. There's a lot of love. No scandal, I'm afraid. I wish I could give you scandal."

The former couple, who announced they were "consciously uncoupling" in March, have remained amicable since the split and have regularly been spotted dining together with their children Apple, 10, and Moses, 9. However, Chris previously suggested that his "issues" were partly to blame for the breakdown of his marriage.

The 37-year-old said: "About two years ago I was a mess really because I can't enjoy the thing that we are good at and I can't enjoy the great things around me because I'm burdened by this ? I've got to not blame anyone else and make some changes."

June 2008: Chris Martin opens up to Rolling Stone about his marriage. 'Think of Romeo and Juliet. I always felt it would be great to be with a very powerful woman because it would keep you in your place.

If your wife went out with Brad Pitt, you'd want to prove yourself, you know what I mean?'

Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs. It’s like we’re flawed – we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge. That’s their problem but I think that the more I live my life, the more I learn not to judge people for what they do. I think we’re all trying our best but life is complicated.’
