Their split rocked Hollywood, and now Chris Martin is speaking out about his separation from wife Gwyneth Paltrow.

During an interview with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, the Coldplay frontman opened up about ending his 10-year marriage with the “Iron Man” actress.

"Everyone in their life goes through challenges,” Chris explained. "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.”

Gwyn and Chris announced their split through Paltrow’s Goop website in a post titled “conscious uncoupling” last month.

"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," the couple wrote. "We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."
