US Weekly is reporting that actress Kate Hudson, 29, and athlete Lance Armstrong, 36, have called it quits after a three month relationship. These two had a whirlwind courtship that first became public when they attended parties at Cannes together in late May. US reports that they were spotted out in mid May in Texas, which would mean they lasted about two and a half months, not three.
By most accounts Kate and Lance moved quickly, having their children meet each other nearly right away, with Kate visiting Lance’s hometown of Austin with her four year-old son, Ryder in mid May. Earlier this month Kate and Lance were seen out having lunch with Kate’s mother, Goldie Hawn. They even had brunch on Father’s Day in NY with their children and Kate’s ex husband,Chris Robinson.
According to US, Kate and Lance were at a conference last weekend for his cancer nonprofit organization, Livestrong, when they decided to call it quits:
“There was no drama or ugliness – They just decided to end things,” a source close to the couple tells Us. “There is no hatred, just sadness.”
The pair quickly became inseparable with sightings of them in Austin, New York and Los Angeles – though both dodged questions about their relationship.
In the short time they were together, the 29-year-old actress was seen with the 36-year-old cyclist at many of his races and events, including his three-day Lance Armstrong Livestrong Summit in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend.
It was at the conference that Hudson and Armstrong decided to go their separate ways, a source tells Us.

To their credit, neither of them publicly acknowledged their relationship, even when directly asked about it on separate appearances on The View. Kate said, ” I try not to talk about my personal life,” which seems like a good way to handle it, especially considering the outcome.
