It is with very heavy hearts we can reveal Oscar-nominated actress Kate Hudson and Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy have called time on their three-year engagement.
The couple who began dating four years ago became engaged in 2011 and welcomed their son Bingham Hawn Bellamy that same year, but the romance is officially over with Kate seeking comfort from none other than Cheryl Fernandez Versini’s ex-‘something’, Derek Hough. Interesting!
Speaking in the past about her and Matthew’s long engagement, the stunning 35-year-old was unconcerned about the apparent delay, saying; “I’m planning nothing right now. I’m so busy, we’ve been so busy and it’s been great.”
Kate, who was married once before and has a ten-year-old son, Ryder, from the relationship, wasn’t in a rush to head back up the aisle, saying: “My parents aren’t married. And one of the reasons why they never got married is because they had been married before and they liked it the way it was.”
Despite the split, Kate and Matthew are, according to a source, "close friends and committed co-parents.” Kate seems keen to move on, however, and The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star has been spotted out and about with Derek Hough, eating, drinking and staying past closing in top LA restaurants.
Kate mentioned Derek as far back as last year when she said she had been ballroom dancing with him and that ‘it’s been a real blast!”
Should we have seen this coming?
