Questionable source Star Magazine claims that divorced single mom and romcom sweetheart, Kate Hudson, 29, is dating LA Clippers basketball player Baron Davis, also 29. Hudson was spotted out with the 6’3″ point guard on October 20 at a club, and they were supposedly seen going back to Hudson’s house together. They’re former classmates from school and have known each other for years, according to Star:
Kate Hudson… was spotted looking supercozy with L.A. Clippers star Baron Davis at Hollywood’s Bardot club on Oct. 20. “Kate and Baron looked like they were on a date,” says an insider. “They enjoyed a few drinks together and whispered in each other’s ear throughout the night. At the end, they jumped into his car and drove back to her house in the Pacific Palisades. This isn’t the first time the two 29 year-olds have been spotted together. After all, they’ve been friends since they were 16 and classmates at Crossroads School in Santa Monica. But, a pal of Goldie Hawn’s daughter tells Star, this is more than just friendship. “They’ve been spending more and more time together since Baron moved back to LA this summer.”

Star isn’t always wrong and this could possibly be true. They were spotted out together and I found the photos, below. It’s hard to know how serious they are though. Hudson gets a lot of grief for just dating and throwing her all into it, sometimes having her son Ryder, 4 and a half, meet her boyfriends after a few weeks. This was most evident in her summer romance with Lance Armstrong, in which they met each other’s kids. Kate seems to really get enmeshed quickly in relationships and not take her time to decide if she’s with the right person before she makes a commitment. She’s cautious with the press, though, and wouldn’t admit to a relationship with Lance despite being photographed out with him multiple times. Maybe she’ll be more careful in this new relationship, but if she did take Baron home with her it doesn’t sound like it.
Here are some photos of Davis being announced as Jenny Craig’s latest spokesperson on 9/26/08. Maybe they figured if they picked a hot athlete they wouldn’t have to worry about him gaining weight. I haven’t heard of this guy before because I don’t follow sports, but he is just gorgeous! Kate Hudson is shown below at the airport on 10/30/08. Photos of the two out together are from 10/20/08.

He’s a cutie with a nice smile. She could do worse – and has. 8)
He is cute, but hasn’t she been single for less than a minute? Dang Kate, give that thing some time to air out before you hop on another one!
I don’t follow sports AT ALL and he is like, the one basketball player I’ve actually heard of.
Baron Davis for Jenny Craig? I’m sure his countless hours of aerobic exercise have nothing to do with his weight loss. 🙄
she is such a tart… should spend her time in acting lessons..
I hope he carries body condoms. Because Kate Hudson gets around and is a walking venereal disease.
He is handsome, sweet smile, but she’ll climb on anything, and she’s let anyone with five minutes navigate the Hudson.
As Chris said, she should take acting lessons, and maybe stop dating every guy in town and stay home, regroup, and enjoy her kid.
I thought they went to high school together. Isn’t it entirely possible that they’re just friends?
Why all the hate for Kate? From what I’ve read (here and elsewhere), both she and her child have a very close relationship with her ex so her kid’s got an ever-present father. Wearing her heart on her sleeve is not a crime, last I heard. 🙄
I am surprised. I didn’t think someone like him was her type.
But it appears almost any man is her type.
So now, the last frontier for her is to date a woman. I predict she will.
I hope they get together. Baron Davis is awesome, and a really nice guy. Really Smart. The only knock on him is.. he went to UCLA, Go Trojans!! SC! Fight ON!
I hope she can deal with his frequent injuries. He’ll probably have to sit out quite a few dates and important Hollyweird get-togethers.
What’s with all her frumpy gear? Preggers?
I wish receiving more than a broken heart could be so uncomplicated as following several steps.. but its not…
