Goldie Hawn convinced Kate Hudson to break up with Owen Wilson

No one really knows the current state of Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson’s relationship. Are they on-again or off-again? Are they living together, partying together, are they engaged or are they not speaking? Last I heard, they were still seeing each other on the downlow, and may be getting engaged at some point, sort of. But The National Enquirer is claiming that Owen and Kate are totally over. Not just that, but Kate’s mother Goldie Hawn was the one to break them up.

It seems Goldie isn’t the free spirit many would imagine – which I totally buy. I think Goldie’s probably pretty shrewd, and a half-decent judge of character. When Goldie saw Owen Wilson, she saw trouble. Goldie sat Kate down and told her that Owen was and is too big of a “risk” for both Kate and Kate’s son Ryder:

Goldie Hawn fought hard to break up the rekindled romance of daughter Kate Hudson and troubled star Owen Wilson, reveals an insider – finally convincing Kate just before her 30th birthday that it was time to face her future honestly and understand that a man who’d attempted suicide by slitting his wrist was a bad risk for her and little Ryder, Goldie’s grandson.

In a tear-filled, one hour-plus sit-down, Goldie pulled out all the stops and warned Kate that life with Owen would be a disaster, and she needed to pull the plug – immediately!

Kate fought back, says the source, but Mom’s love and logic finally overwhelmed her. Days later, she broke it off with Owen, once and for all…

Goldie has a point. Even though I think Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson probably care about each other quite a bit, Owen needs to work on his problems by himself before he can be really committed to someone, especially a single mother with a young child. The reporting was pretty consistent that Owen’s friends thought Kate was a bad influence on Owen, though. They thought she was a love ‘em and leave ‘em type who would break Owen’s heart and leave him devastated and suicidal yet again. I’m not sure if I buy that Kate is such a maneater, but perhaps a timeout for the relationship will be a good thing.

    Sound advice from Momma! And Kate looks fabulous in that dress.

  2. raven says:

    That’s unfortunate, if they would otherwise be together successfully. Kate’s revolving door romantic life isn’t exactly great for her son either. And how nice for the suicidal to realize that the minute they admit it, the people they love will dump them because the relationship is too risky.

    kate and Owen are friends with benefits.
    Kates son is going to have a lot of uncles growing up

  4. Maritza says:

    Good riddens! Owen and Jennifer Aniston are more suited for each other, they both are blond, needy and have the same age and interests.

    “In a tear-filled, one hour-plus sit-down, Goldie pulled out all the stops and warned Kate that life with Owen would be a disaster, and she needed to pull the plug – immediately!”

    Stories like these always very much amuse me. Me thinks that the maid,
    Juanita, was eavesdropping while taking her sweet time dusting the furniture within earshot of this Mommy-Daughter dialogue, and that Conchita the cook had her ears glued to the conversation whilst in the kitchen making the guacamole. They then had a duel over who would be first in speed-dialing the rag reporters.

  6. Kate's friend says:

    There is a lot to this relationship that doesn’t always get reported. The main problem in their relationship wasn’t his suicide attempt as suggested in the article. It was the fact that the previous two breakups were caused by infidelity. Owen just can’t stay loyal, no matter how much he loves Kate. Kate would always have to live with the fear of being cheated on, and that is why they broke up. Anything you previously read about Kate not being loyal to Owen is complete bunk.

  7. RobN says:

    Raven, there’s a difference between being supportive of, and taking a chance on, a person with suicidal tendencies, and subjecting your small child to that same situation. Not subjecting your kid to a potentially unsafe situation, physically and mentally, is more important than worrying about a boyfriend’s feelings.

  8. kiki says:

    Kate can be with a diffrent guy evey day of the week. but she introduces her son to her flavor of the week the kid rides on the guys shoulders bonds with him and then mom breaks up with him. that messes up a young childs head how you think they grow up to be like? not to mention introducing various sex partners to children can lead to them being sexually abused.

    “And how nice for the suicidal to realize that the minute they admit it, the people they love will dump them because the relationship is too risky. ”

    Kate is not a doctor that is treating Owen.
    She is a single mother who should find a person who is stable and could be trusted.

    What would you advise yout daughter? don’t hurt his feelings and stay with a suicidal person?

  10. ChristinaT says:

    Johnnie, i always think the same thing… do the tabs have a cloaking device? are they bugging them? how could they POSSIBLY know such intimate details?

  11. OXA says:

    I agree with Goldie, Ryder does not need to be subjected to anymore of this crap. Kate needs to keep her revolving door of dates away from her son.

  12. Tammy King says:

    This is ridiculous! How would they possibly know about this conversation? Was someone else in the room with them? Did Goldie or Kate go to National Enquirer? I doubt it.

  13. Goldie's Right ... says:

    I have to agree with Goldie (and with “Kate’s friend”). Lord knows that Kate has given Owen so many chances and has been loyal and kind to him. There seems to be long-standing emotional problems with Owen (which didn’t start with Kate). His reported behavior is almost textbook borderline. He probably really can’t help himself. I feel very sorry for him. If he is mentally ill, that is a terrible, terrible thing (my mother has Bipolar II so I know all that such a disorder can entail) BUT the other women, the drinking, the mood swings – that’s so unhealthy for Ryder (and for Kate) to be around. Kate seems like a sweet and open-hearted person and I’m sure she doesn’t want to abandon an emotionally fragile person she loves but she does need to STOP going back to him. It can be dangerous for all involved and just makes the whole sad situation worse.

    It’s tough breaking up with someone when you love them but deep inside you know it’s never going to work. Those kinds of breakups take a long time for most people to recover from but ultimately are for the best. I hope Kate finds someone special–she really has been on a roller coaster ride with Owen for the last few years and deserves someone who will treat her well.
