London - Chris Martin won't marry again after splitting from Gwyneth Paltrow.

The Coldplay front man - who broke up with his wife in March after 10 years of marriage - is said to be done with marriage after being left embarrassed by the way their personal life has been aired so publicly.

According to reports in the Daily Star newspaper, the trauma of their split has put him off the idea and he has struggled coping with the "tough time".

An insider said: "It's a tough time for Chris and he absolutely hates having his dirty linen washed in public.

"He's a very private person. Chris isn't comfortable talking about it, feels like he's let himself down and is also angry with the way the split unfolded."

It is said he was hurt by the way the split break-up was announced - described as an "conscious uncoupling" - and the way it was received.

The source added: "The way the newsletter and the 'conscious uncoupling' quote was ridiculed so openly also embarrassed him.

"In reality he never feels that anyone outside of his inner circle needs to know about what is going on in his life." - BANG Showbiz
