Wow!! Should we all have seen this coming all along?!
However, could they have been plotting the 22-year-old's sudden 1D exodus for a while??

And finally, HE SPEAKS!
One month after the aloofness that was Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's conscious uncoupling, the Coldplay frontman is speaking out about the breakup, and revealing that his own issues were partially the reason for the split!
"You can be with someone very wonderful, but because of your own issues you cannot let that be celebrated in the right way. I think in life everyone needs to be broken in some way. I think everyone in their life goes through challenges, whether it's love or money, kids or illness. You have to really not run away from that stuff."
He later spilled when things really changed for their marriage:
"What changed for me was, I don't want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure. 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."
Before all the revelations, Chris explained that much of his band's new album is inspired by his failed relationship with Gwenny—so we can't wait to decode the lyrics!
They seem to be happier after ending things, no?!
