Kate Hudson dumped Nick Jonas because she ‘wants to pursue multiple people’


We learned in September that Kate Hudson, 36, was hooking up with Nick Jonas, 23. I thought it was fine, but some people disagreed and that’s fine too. My thought was that Kate knows what she’s doing, and she wasn’t going around trying to convince people that she and Nick were the real deal or anything. It was a fun hookup and they were basically friends with benefits more than they were “dating” in any official way. Well, the rumored FWB situation lasted a few months and now it’s over. Kate dumped Nick, allegedly.

Kate Hudson has called off her romance with Nick Jonas. According to a Monday report from Life & Style Weekly, the 36-year-old actress didn’t like the idea of the 23-year-old singer going off on tour with Demi Lovato.

‘Kate felt Nick wouldn’t be able to maintain his commitment to her while he’s on the road,’ a source told the weekly. And she has no interest in keeping up the relationship, it was added.

‘She thought it was best to remain single.’

But not for long, The source also said the Bride Wars star wants to get into the dating scene again. And soon. ‘Kate wants to pursue multiple people,’ the friend said.

[From The Daily Mail]

See, that’s why I’m sort of a Hudson Apologist. She’s fine. She’s dating. She’s dating multiple dudes and having fun and exploring her sexual agency. There’s nothing wrong with that! And I enjoy the fact that Kate isn’t trying to convince us otherwise. She’s not giving teary interviews about how difficult it is to find love or anything. Nope. She’s just out there, hitting it and quitting it with cute pop stars like Nick. She should bang Harry Styles next. They would be an exquisite mess.

    The buzz cut, thick turtleneck, and jacket. Blech.

    • word says:

      The haircut looks fine on him to me. It was the turtleneck that ruined the look. I know turtlenecks are popular right now but this look just didn’t suit him.

  2. word says:

    Were they really ever dating? They were seen together twice only.

  3. Nancy says:

    I never saw anything special in her. Not fair to compare, but she doesn’t share the charisma her mother had back in her time. Sock it to me……Nick Jonas is just blah, a boy.

  4. Truly says:

    Like mother like daughter. Goldie wanted and got an open relationship.

    I guess Kate can’t find a Kurt.

    • Saphana says:

      so many men have those patriachal ideas of owning a woman and controlling her sexuality, so its obviously hard to find a man who is more evolved.

      • Bettyrose says:

        That was true in Goldie’s generation but not so much in Kate’s. She’ll be fine.

      • Saphana says:

        i wouldnt say that, its still very widespread and in multiple threads here you could see the monogamy police coming out in full force because i dared to promote the sexual agency of women and outlined how important casual sex and hook up culture are for a feminist world.
        i’d say most men are too anti feminist to consider non monogamy and there are still way too many women thinking like that. its still a long fight.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Saphana, I do see your point. I’m 41 and I feel that I’ve dated a pretty representative cross section of my generation. I’m pretty fond of men my age. They tend to have been raised by working mothers, quite often are from single parent homes, and are supportive of feminism. Having said that, there is also a strong trend toward monogamy and I agree that men aren’t always comfortable with open relationships. As one guy explained to me, it’s unfair to men because the women can always “get laid” but the guy has to work harder. This is true for men who aren’t famous or especially rich. Women generally can find sex with less effort. Preferring monogamy out of fear of being cheated on isn’t the same as trying to own a woman’s sexuality, though it might seem that way. But Kate is dating A-List guys who I suspect are more motivated to keep things casual since they benefit from that arrangement.

  5. Saphana says:

    great, we need more female celebs like her.

  6. Nayru says:

    As long as she doesn’t have multiple potential new daddy figures walking in and out of her children’s lives.

  7. knower says:

    I’d believe the headline if Nick Jonas was straight.

    Kate Hudson loved being linked to Nick Jonas – he’s a lot younger, more hip, more relevant. Plus, Nick gets the indirect benefit of being rumored to be in a hetero romance. Kate isn’t the star she was in the early 2000s so any publicity is better than crickets.

  8. Jess says:

    I’m generally not a fan of Kate as an actress, and as a child of divorce I wasn’t keen on her having her son spend so much time with her boyfriends so quickly, but as a woman I am a big fan of her approach to dating. Good for her!

  9. JenniferJustice says:

    Wait a minute! So, they were just friends with benefits – a fun fling – and it’s okay for her date multiple people but she dumped Nick because she didn’t like him going on tour with Demi and worried he would not be able to maintain his commitment to Kate? Okaaaaaay……..

  10. EN says:

    I withhold my judgment on Kate until she hits 50 or so.
    I need to see how her kids adjust and what she feels she accomplished in her life by that point.

    I feel like she wasted many opportunities to do something more with her life, but I don’t know her, maybe I am wrong.

  11. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    She and Harry Styles would be a glorious mess!

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    She’s looking like Kate Winslet in that picture

  13. kimbers says:

    She needs a job not a note in the gossip rags to stay relevant. I say this with love bc she’s a total joke and I used to root for her!

  14. iheartgossip says:

    As if they were ever together; other than for the pap stroll. Nope.

  15. Carol says:

    Kind of have to agree. Apparently she has a few movies in the works so maybe she’ll get noticed more for her work than who she sleeps with. She does have fabletics so I guess that counts as work. BTW – I am all for dating and having fun when you are single but I think she goes overboard. I don’t necessarily think sleeping around or chasing partners, whether you are a guy or a woman, is all that awesome. But whatever.

  16. WillowS says:

    As long as she’s keeping her kids away from all of the guys, why not? Not everyone is meant to be monogamous on a long term basis.

  17. RhoSue says:

    She already has multiple “relationships”.
