They may have "consciously uncoupled," but Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow still remain close, despite their impending divorce.

"The thing that we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true," the Coldplay singer, 37, said of their split in an interview with Valentine in the Morning airing on Monday.

But he said that he still has a tight bond with the Oscar winner, with whom he has two children (Apple, 10, and Moses, 8). "We're very close," he said, adding, "We're not together. That's the truth."

Paltrow, 41, announced their amicable split via her Goop website in March after 11 years of marriage.

"We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," she wrote. "We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been."

The couple have been seen together since then, vacationing in the Bahamas with their kids, and they were even spotted holding hands in April.

"There's a lot of love," Martin said. "There's no scandal."
