In news that probably makes a lot of people very nervous, Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson have broken up. Again. You’ll remember that Owen attempted suicide after his last breakup with Kate this past summer. The pair rekindled their romance two months ago, much to the worry of their family and friends. Several unnamed “sources” said they didn’t think it was a healthy relationship for either of them to be in. But as time went on and happy pictures came out, it seemed the pair could maybe make a better go of it this time around. Turns out that was not to be.
Despite a flurry of engagement rumors, Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson – Hollywood’s most notorious on-again, off-again couple – have called it quits, less than two months after rekindling their romance in Miami. The end of their erratic courtship (they began dating in September ’06) comes amid erroneous reports that the pair were engaged, fueled by photos of Hudson wearing a Tiffany & Co. ring (it was a prop!) both on-and-off set of her film Bride Wars, which she’s filming in Boston.
“It was a pretty bad breakup,” says a Wilson pal. “Owen said it was a tough one. He definitely doesn’t want to dwell on it. He wants to put it behind him.” Since the split, Hudson, 29, and Wilson, 39, have each been spotted letting loose. On May 9, Hudson and Bride Wars costar Steve Howey, 30, visited Boston’s Liberty Hotel bar, Alibi. And on May 11, Wilson dropped by N.Y.C.’s Upstairs with two women.
“He was pretty chummy with the ladies … he was certainly doing some sweet talking,” according to an onlooker. “He looked happy to be there hanging with them.” The late-night outing was followed by a visit to Butter the next night, where he chatted up a sexy blonde. Says a Hudson source: “She feels dumb thinking it was so serious.”
Us Weekly reports that their relationship was never serious or monogamous, and that Owen was still heavily playing the field.
Another source close to the couple says they’ve always had a “loose and open thing — never serious, and definitely not monogamous.”
On May 4, Hudson partied with pals in a Boston bar. That same week, Wilson was spotted flirting with women with Miami club Quattro, according to the Miami Herald.
The paper reports that more than a few of them were starting to avoid Wilson’s phone calls because he’d become “so skanky.”

Hearing Owen Wilson say it was a really hard break up makes me nervous for his health. It’s good he’s being honest – hopefully is friends and family are really looking out for him. There’s no word on who broke up with whom, or how mutual it was. Hopefully they’re both in a better place than last time, and can move on with their lives in a healthy, happy way.
