After being engaged for several years and sharing a son, four-year-old Bingham, together, Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy quietly separated in 2014, finally confirming their split last December. Now Kate is opening up about what went wrong.
Kate discussed the split in her interview with Allure magazine, which she also covers for November:
Relationships ending are painful, and you can choose to carry that or you can choose to reframe it. If Matt and I had a great relationship, we would still be together, but we chose to move on because we had different visions of how we wanted to live our lives. That doesn’t mean, though, that we can’t rebuild something that would be the best thing for the kids.”
In addition to Bingham, Kate also has a son, eleven year old Ryder, with ex-husband Chris Robinson. Because of Bingham, Kate and Matthew have made a concerted effort to maintain a good relationship.
We said, ‘We need to try to create something for the kids where they feel like they’re gaining something rather than losing something.’ It’s been a seamless transition. Kids just want to see their parents be cool. Everybody’s cool; everybody’s good.”
It’s great that they’ve both been able to “rise above” the tension that is inevitable with a split for the sake of the kids. I’m sure Matthew has a relationship with Ryder, and Bingham is very young: Kate and Matthew have a lot of years of co-parenting ahead of them!
