'About two years ago I was a mess really because I can't enjoy things that we are good at and I can't enjoy the great things around me because I'm burdened by this,' the singer said.

'I've got to not blame anyone else and make some changes,' added the 38-year-old.

Chris admitted that he thought Gwyneth was 'wonderful' but that because of his own issues he could not let that be celebrated in the right way.

'What changed for me was [that] I don't want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure.'

'If you don't let love really in then you can't really give it back.'

Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her musician husband shocked fans in March when they revealed via her website, Goop, that they were separating, adding that they had been 'working hard for well over a year' to make it work, but couldn't.

They have endeavoured to stay close friends and work together to bring up their two young children.
