Kate Hudson’s Father Publicly Slammed Her for Still Using His Last Name

Kate Hudson and her father, Bill Hudson, were never close. The actress believes Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn’s longtime companion, was her father, and even went so far as to say that her biological father was abandoning the “blessing. ” Before announcing a blessing, Bill gave an emotional interview asking Kate and her brother, Oliver Hudson, to stop using his last name.

Bill Hudson and Goldie Hawn were married from 1976 to 1982

Goldie and Kurt have been together since 1983, just after the First Ladies Club star divorce from Bill. The couple married in 1976, the same year Oliver was born, and then welcomed Kate in 1979. After the divorce, Bill was reported to have been largely absent from children’s lives, and Kurt picked them up with Goldie. (Kurt and Goldie had a son, Wyatt Russell, in 1986.)

Kate told Jenny McCarthy in a February 2016 interview on her show at SiriusXM that she was grateful that Bill had abandoned her and Oliver, but she does not regret it.

“We can laugh at the challenges we face together,” she said. “I feel like it was a blessing. And whatever [Bill] through it, I am all forgiven. ”

In September 2016, the founder of Fabletics admitted that she recognizes how difficult it must be not to have a good relationship with your children. (She has 3 – Ryder, Bingham, and Rani.)

“I really recognize that no matter what those issues are, it’s just something he has to live with, and that has to be painful for him. So I forgive him, ”she said in an interview with Howard Stern.

Bill Hudson said Goldie Hawn made it difficult for his children to see

Bill noted in his interview with the Daily Mail that he did not think he had abandoned his children, but Goldie made it impossible for him to see them.

“Goldie paid them against me,” he said. “She told the children I had moved to Portland. I went to Portland for eight months to make a record but then returned to LA. I never abandoned my family. I never walked away. I wanted to be a father to Kate and Oliver but Goldie made it harder and harder for me to see them. It’s about control. What Goldie wants, Goldie gets. “

He also said that he wrote letters to Kate and Oliver frequently after the divorce, but did not know if they had ever received them. In a new program of Kate and Oliver Revelry Sibling podcast which began on January 8, 2021, Kate expressed interest in resolving an old testament.

“You know what I’ve been thinking lately? Dad, ”she said. “I’ve been thinking about our sisters that we don’t spend time with them and our brother… our brothers. We have four sisters we never spend time with. ”

It may take time for all injuries to heal.
