The divorce of actor Kate Hudson and Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson is finally official. Judge Robert Schnider of the Los Angeles Superior Court signed off on the couple’s divorce papers on October 25, nearly a year after Robinson filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
Both Robinson and Hudson were seeking joint custody of their son, three-year-old Ryder Russell, and neither asked for spousal support. However, the court has not yet publicly revealed any details of the case’s child-custody or financial-settlement decisions.
Hudson, 28, who has starred in the appropriately titled movies Le Divorce and How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she had remained on friendly terms with Robinson during the divorce proceedings. “For both Chris and me, our main focus is — and was — Ryder,” the magazine quoted her as saying. “And happy parents, happy baby. Therefore, I love Chris to pieces.”
Robinson and Hudson married on New Year’s Eve of 2000 in Aspen, Colorado. Since the couple separated in August 2006, reports have circulated linking Hudson romantically with such stars as Owen Wilson and Dax Shepard. (In fact, ANI claims that her fling with Wilson triggered the separation.)
Hudson, who is the daughter of Academy Award-winning comic Goldie Hawn and who herself received an Oscar nomination in 2001 for her role in Almost Famous, will next appear in the comedy Fool’s Gold with Matthew McConaughey. Robinson, 40, has recently completed work on recording the Crowes’ next album, the band’s website reports. The album is due for release next spring.
