Los Angeles: Singer Chris Martin was reportedly "hard to live with" before he split from wife and actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

The former couple - who have children Apple, 9, and Moses, 8, together - split in March after 10 years of marriage and insiders claim the Coldplay frontman`s insecurity caused a lot of their problems, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"Chris is very tough on himself and that can be hard to live with. There was a time a few years ago when there were a lot of fights," Britain`s Grazia magazine quoted a source as saying.

Martin`s insecurity made him "hard" for Paltrow to live with.

"He and Gwyneth had a great life but it was like he couldn`t quite see it and couldn`t commit to it. There were other issues that sparked off that and, ultimately, they ended up leading very different, very separate lives," said the source.
