His 38-year-old wife of seven years, the mother of their two children, is said to have been an emotional rock for her husband as he struggles to get to grips to the situation, reports the Daily Mail.
According to the Mirror, the Coldplay singer's mother Alison has left the marital home in Devon to rent an apartment in London, while his father Anthony has reportedly started a new relationship.
The 33-year-old is also upset because his parents have put the house where he spent his childhood on the market.
"Chris has always been extremely close to his father, while some of his sisters have had very strong relationships with their mother," a source told the Mirror.
"But watching his parents split has been heartbreaking for him, and he's desperate to stay close and in regular contact with both of them," the source added. (ANI)
