The couple, who began dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2011, had been together for over four years and had a son together, Bingham Hawn Bellamy, but they mutually decided they were better off as friends.
Hudson’s rep spoke out on the actresses behalf the day news hit the headlines, saying, “Kate and Matt have been separated for some time now. Despite this, they remain very close friends and committed co-parents.”
Now Bellamy is addressing the split for the first time himself, taking to Twitter to make a very polite statement:
Love all of you guys! We’re both very happy, it’s for the best. Thanks for your kind words. Now about that new album…

Meanwhile, Hudson has been linked to Dancing With the Stars alum Derek Hough, according to Us Weekly. Sources say the duo were spotted over the weekend enjoying dinner and drinks. However, their relationship dates back to 2013 when Hough began giving the actress ballroom dancing lessons.
