Kate Hudson’s ex fighting with her bf over his fatherly role in son’s life

The National Enquirer had this good piece of gossip about how Kate Hudson’s current boyfriend, rock star Matt Bellamy, is feuding with her ex husband, rock star Chris Robinson. You would think that those two might get along, since Chris has long since moved on and has a new wife and baby, and both he and Matt seem like relatively mellow guys. Plus guys don’t openly express hostility to each other much in my experience, and if they don’t like each other they just keep their distance. That might not be the case with Chris and Matt, though, because according to the Enquirer Chris told Matt to step off and stop acting like a dad to his seven year-old son with Kate, Ryder. Meanwhile Matt is upset that Kate is so close with Chris and his wife and “feels threatened by that.”

“The situation is very awkward because Kate is friendly with Chris, his wife Allison and their baby. Matt feels threatened by that.

“He and Chris are musical rivals with opposite personalities. Chris is an introverted hippie and Matt is a hard-rocking outgoing guy. Every time they talk, they wind up arguing…

“I think Chris is put off by how Matt has taken such a fatherly role with Ryder,” the source said. “He even told Matt, ‘Back off, man. Ryder already has a dad.”

Their frosty relationship appeared evident at Ryder’s Little League game in Malibu on March 19.

“Kate was hanging out with Chris and his wife, chatting and cheering Ryder on. But Matt kept his distance and wouldn’t talk to Chris,” the source revealed.

The blonde beauty, who gained 70 pounds while carrying Ryder, is reportedly suffering through a difficult pregnancy.

“Kate must feel like a bloated whale. The last thing she’ll want to deal with is playing referee between her ex-husband and her boyfriend,” said the source.

I don’t believe this. I’ll buy that Matt and Chris avoid each other, but I doubt that Chris told Matt to step off his son. He could of, though. He just strikes me as the type of guy who would try to get along with another guy. Kaiser and I were e-mailing about this, and in our experience it’s rare for guys to bitch another guy out to his face. (Behind their backs, sure.) Usually they either avoid each other or try to get along. I also think that a lot of guys forget that they’re mad at each other when they hang out. It’s like unspoken guy code or something. The Enquirer probably had a paparazzi source tell them that Matt and Chris didn’t talk at that baseball game, but the rest of this sounds like conjecture.

Also, how rude is it to say that Kate “must feel like a bloated whale.” She’s pregnant, give her a break!

    Uh, what “difficult pregnancy”? All I’ve heard her say is that she feels permastoned, which I sure didn’t take to be a complaint.

  2. Janna says:

    I don’t believe it. Matt is gone a lot with his band, anyway. And Chris has a girlfriend, or maybe she’s his wife now, so she’s a stepmother to Ryder and has influence, also.

  3. Iggles says:

    Team Chris. He comes off as a good guy. Kate put him through the wringer.

  4. Rhiley says:

    I kind of believe this only because Chris Robinson is a well known asshole. He feuds often with the members of his band, and I think he has a problem of knowing when to keep his mouth shut. Remember the last time we heard from this jerk he was picking a fight with Swifty. Chris Robinson is an insecure wannabe so I am sure if his son takes to Matt, thinks Matt is a cool dude, likes hanging with his mom and Matt, then Chris would say something about it.

  5. junk573r says:

    I’d figure if she felt so bloated, those shoes would be a no go. I’ve never been pregnant though..

  6. TG says:

    LOL about guys forgetting they are mad at each other when they hang out. That is so true. My brother has screwed over both my husband and me and my brother-in-law and the next thing I know they are all happily drinking together. Ha ha

  7. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I would never wear those shoes pregnant..

    Her pregnancy style sucks. I hate everything she wears.

  8. John Wayne Lives says:

    I LOVE. Chris R. But he does have a reputation for being a divaish rocker, and his fighting with his band, mostly his brother in the band is common knowledge.

  9. pixiegirl says:

    Musical rivals? Srsly?

  10. Whatever says:

    Whatever roll the ex’s new wife plays in Rider’s life the same rights and/or limitations should be given to the guy from Muse, whatever his name is. Anyway, that is only if they get married. If they don’t then he has NO role in riders life. Just cause you knock a kids mom up doesn’t make you daddy to the other kids she’s had.

  11. dorothy says:

    Can’t be too difficult…she’s traveling constantly.

  12. Mia says:

    I don’t buy this either. Chris didn’t seem to have a problem when Kate was introducing every new lover to their son.

  13. Annaloo says:

    I hate those shoes with open toes like that. They look like a rat was gnawing on them…sort of like the shoes a cartoon hobo would wear. ..

  14. TurquoiseBlue says:

    Could HAVE, not could OF.

    Who is this source who knows the situation so well and yet would say Kate must feel like a ‘bloated whale’? Cruel much? I don’t believe this.

  15. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @pixiegirl, “musical rivals, srsly?”

    I was thinking the same thing! When was the last time Chris Robinson had a hit? The early 90s with the Black Crows?

    If he is being rude or dismissive to Matt, it probably has to do with jealousy over Matt’s success. I’m sure it’s a hit to Robinson’s ego, that his son’s soon-to-be step daddy is the new big thing and he’s a washed up has been.

  16. Samigirl says:

    That black outfit is horrid. I totally believe this. My ex is the most mellow guy in the world, and he has been absolutely horrid to my future hubby (8 days till the wedding, BITCHES!)…saying he’s an awful person, drinks too much (rarely drinks), etc, all because Emerson loves “his Justin.” Guys are douches and cause more drama than men, IMO.

  17. TXCinderella says:

    If this story is true, Chris better damn well be glad that Matt is good to Ryder. He could very well be his stepdad some day.

  18. TXCinderella says:

    That black outfit Kate is wearing is ridiculous. She’s trying to squeeze into non-pregnancy jeans and they look like they will cut her in two. Matt is looking kinda sexy in that last pic!

  19. Kosmos says:

    I agree, her outfit looks ridiculous. She could definitely have style + pregnancy with the right clothes, a bit more appropriate than that embarrassing ensemble. Having your child raised by a new daddy would be difficult to ease into, so I’m not surprised at the fuss Chris is making.

  20. Heather says:

    Didn’t Chris Robinson spit on a woman once because she had never heard of the Black Crowes? Or is that a rumor?

  21. kiki says:

    Aw, give her a break on the clothes. Being pregnant sucks body-wise, so what if her regular clothes fits badly now? It’s a waste to buy those pants w/ a pouch & muumuu tops just for a few months’ wear.
    As for the Chris/Matt feud, not buying it. Guys don’t play those games unless one or both are a-holes. Matt most certainly is NOT like that, but Chris’ reputation is not the best. Still, naw.

  22. Liana says:

    I know Chris through my husband. He’s actually a really nice guy. His feuds with the band have actually been fights with his brother. Ever try to work with your sibling? I adore my sister Ang, but no WAY could I work with her for any length of time without wanting to pummel her.

    I can see him telling Bellamy to step off a bit. He’s not Ryder’s father nor stepfather at this stage in time.

  23. Gigohead says:

    “Kate must feel like a bloated whale.

    Looks like the unnamed source is not really a friend but a frienemy. who would say something so obnoxious?

  24. truthzbetta says:

    The bloated whale thing is so rude.

    But then I looked at K-ho’s outfit and couldn’t believe it. It’s slutty but dated. And let us be honest, slutty mom is a horrendous look.

    Slutty pregnant mom. I am positive I saw a young, not pregnant Madonna in an 80′s outfit trying to look like a slut wearing that top. But with her it was kinda cute wayyyy back when she was It.

    Kate Hudson’s career seems to be doing famous guys now. She’s an embarrassment to what were the contributions of Goldie Hawn. Goldie proved ditzy, fun blondes could be smart, successful and yet really sexy for a long time.

    Now her daughter’s a Kardashian.

  25. Aviatrix says:

    Eh..maybe this could happen, but I think that they are two mellow guys that would be fine together. Plus Chris seems like he would be happy that Matt is good to Ryder. Could just be career jealousy though.

    What I’m more concerned about it how far ahead Matt walks in front of Kate. He keeps his distance, and the body language is telling. Especially since she is trying to squeeze her pregnant body into non-maternity clothes it looks a little insecure/desperate on her part. Having been pregnant before (I know every pregnancy is different), the second trimester you feel pretty good, but towards the end you feel fat and not at all attractive. Compound that with your baby daddy is on stage in front of screaming girls and groupies, and it’s a lot to reign in an ego like that. Yes it’s speculation, but it’s probably tempting for him to step out on her considering her own admission that this wasn’t ‘planned’.

  26. kiki says:

    Aviatrix, re: body language — those pix were taken in Brazil where they were mobbed by paparazzi at every turn. They couldn’t take walks & needed extra security due to harassment. From what I’ve seen they are very devoted to each other. No telling what the future holds, of course.

  27. Vesper says:

    I remember when Kate first came on the scene and starred in Almost Famous. Back than she gave an amazing performance, and she was vivacious and very pretty. It seems over the years that she lost that. Most of her movies are crappy rom-coms and she typically looks frumpy and bloated. Her pregnancy clothes are horrific, and she comes across as desperate.

  28. No Really says:

    Matt wasn’t even at that little league game. He was on tour in South America at that time.

    …and why continually the 5″ heels at this stage of the pregnancy? Why doesn’t she just give herself a break? Sheesh!

  29. danielle says:

    Kate is looking pretty good this pregnancy. Don’t want to be mean, but she really did blow up with Ryder.
