A Reason For the Kate & Chris Sudden Split

A Reason For the Kate & Chris Sudden Split

We were shocked when the news of Kate and Chris splitting came out earlier this week and now we all want answers. US is breaking the Owen factor and while we bet there will be denials later today from reps, we know in Hollywood many marriages end due to co-workers. Kate and Owen did seem to be having a blast while promoting their movie and they would look cute together but who knows what to believe right now. Stay tuned. Here's more from US:

On August 14, Kate Hudson announced that she was separating from Chris Robinson, her husband of five and a half years. And though the actress, 27, and the Black Crowes singer (who have a son, Ryder, 2), were rumored to have been on the outs all summer – she never visited him during his current U.S. tour – multiple sources confirm to Us that Hudson’s burgeoning relationship with actor Owen Wilson was the main catalyst for the split.

(A rep for Hudson had no comment. A lawyer for Wilson tells Us in a statement, “[Anything] that suggests that the separation of Ms. Hudson was caused by Mr. Wilson…is absolutely false.”)

Meanwhile, sources tell Us that Hudson has spent several nights at her You, Me and Dupree costar’s Santa Monica, California, pad in the last few weeks. “This is not a fling,” says a source close to the couple. “Kate is crazy about him. Owen gives her so much attention, and she loves it. [That’s why] she wants her marriage to be over.”

Three days before the split, a Wilson source told Us, “Owen is not-so-secretly hoping she will leave Chris so they wouldn’t have to hide. He is falling for her.”

Bummer for Kate, Chris seemed really laid back...maybe a little too laid back, thats why she's attracted to crazy Owen ! I know the feeling...

Owen is not cute...he is too girlie for me...with the pouting and the glossy lips and the over styled hair...these 2 will not last if it is indeed true.

I think they are a reflection of each other, physically and psychologically. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the truth!

Kate and weird nose Owen? Say it ain't so. I refuse to believe this until I see proof.

Cheating is cheating and if you didn't go into a marriage 100% 'til death do you part, then what was the point? Yeah, marriages don't always work, but TRY TO WORK IT OUT! Don't just jump into bed with someone else and call it a day. And I've worked for US ragazine, they're not always right.

I called it an upgrade, yet I don;t think Owen is better looking. He just seems like a better fit to her personality. I feel bad for Chris, yet always questioned whether or not he was faithful with his drug use, free love attitude and roadie life style.

I just love (re:sarcasm) how everyone calls it an upgrade because he's better looking (supposedly). How shallow. Sorry but true. Besides the fact that he is NOT better looking, he is also a total man whore (has admitted so in interviews) and I think it's sad that she threw away her marriage like that. Who knows what goes on behind close doors in a relationship, but it is never ok to cheat, period. Btw, this is a 100% true story (Kate and Owen). I have friends that work for US Magazine and she said they caught the two of them together and that it's totally true. 99% of the time, you can believe stories that come from US Magazine because they go above and beyond to double and triple check their stories with sources. A good percentage of the time, it's the celebrities own non-celebrity friends that are calling in the stories and tipping off the gossip magazines to begin with.

I just think if you get married, you should believe the words when you say them. I know people change, and shit happens, but why get married thinking it isn't going to last.

Jinx, Kate did say that she thoughtful being monogamous was impractical but I kind of thought(at the time) she meant that being a rocker's wife and all and she was forgiving to him. I agree you with you blondie and Jinx, a cheater deserves to be put down no matter who they are. However like my dad always told me "Who ever said the world was fair?" Man I hated it when he said that, no comeback works! lol I realize now as a grown up how true those words are.

If she said that, why did she bother getting married? Why not just have an open relationship.

I don't know why everyone is shocked by their split. Kate has always said her marriage wouldn't last forever! And when you go into it with that attitude, of course you will split eventually!

If the Kate affair story is true, it will probably be okay in Sugarland because Kate is loved and Chris is ugly. >.<

Adultery is adultery no matter who commits it. If this is true, yy like for Kate just dropped big time. Chris Robinson is a really nice guy.
