Has Chris Martin come out as gay? He says Gwyneth Paltrow has ‘been a great beard for 10 years’ *CONFUSED*

Gwyneth Paltrow's hubbie, Chris Martin is a quiet sort of guy who says very little to the press but he's said a whole mouthful now insinuating that he's gay. *PULLS OMG! FACE*

We're a tad unsure whether his latest comments hinting to him being gay are:
a)    Actually true
b)    A way to dodge question about his family and marriage
c)    A ploy to promote Coldplay's latest album, 'Mylo Xyloto'

Nevertheless, his thoughts have us quite confused.

During an appearance on American TV programme,'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', Chris was asked why he didn't talk about Gwyneth much despite them having a 'great relationship and two precious kids'.

"She's been a great beard for me now, for 10 years," Chris said.

To which the show's host, Ellen replied: "Is that right? It's not really a real relationship? She just pretends that she's your wife."

"Yeah, it's hard to believe," he added.

*WHAT?!?* In our world when a man refers to his girlfriend or wife as a 'beard' he means she's a cover up to him being gay.

And, if this wasn't enough madness, at the Q Awards on Monday the singer described U2 as 'five handsome, strapping men from Stoke and Manchester.'

And apparently with his tongue in his cheek added: "I'm not afraid to admit it, they made me ask the question 'Am I gay?'"

But Chris, you've left us questioning, are you gay?
