Q. Hi Oracle!
A few days ago I heard a rumour that said that Chris Martin suffers tinnitus, a disease that causes the person that has it hear noises, like hum or hisses.
Is is true or is it just a rumour?
I'm eagerly waiting for you to answer this question.
Thank you for your time.
Bye!


The Oracle replies:

It's not a rumour, Chris does suffer with tinnitus. It's not a disease though, it's usually as a result of being subjected to loud music.
There are varying degrees - I get it frequently but I don't suffer and it passes quickly. Some cases are so severe that the sensation is constant.
Chris spoke out to raise awareness for this very common condition.
