Kate and Oliver Hudson’s Dad Disowns Them: ‘Stop Using the Hudson Name’
Bill has spoken out and cut all ties with Kate and her brother. He has requested that his children stop using the surname Hudson, and revealed that he does not consider them to be his after the hurtful posts on Instagram.
Oliver posted this photo to his sister on Father’s Day: “Happy abandonment day…”
Now the 65-year-old is telling his side of the story, slamming his ex-wife Goldie Hawn, who he claimed cheated on him and wanted an open marriage.
When we split up, she never had a bad word to say about me. But when Kurt [Russell] came on the scene, the narrative changed and I became the big, bad wolf. I would say to her ‘Goldie, why are you trashing me and saying I’m an absent father when it’s simply not the case?’ and she’d laugh and go ‘Oh Bill, you know it makes for a better story.’
Bill also claims that he tried to remain in his children’s lives, but their mother pitted them against him. But, Oliver’s post was the last straw for any chance of reconciliation.
That was like a dagger to the heart. If what he wanted was me out of their lives, then he’s succeeded. I don’t want to see either of my eldest children ever again. It’s over.
It also didn’t help that Kate and Oliver posted sweet photos with their step-father.
Happy Father’s Day Pa… 😘 #neworleans #felixs A photo posted by Oliver Hudson (@theoliverhudson) on
I say to them now, ‘I set you free. I had five birth children but I now consider myself a father of three. I no longer recognize Oliver and Kate as my own. I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name. They are no longer a part of my life. Oliver’s Instagram post was a malicious, vicious, premeditated attack. He is dead to me now. As is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth.
Kate and Oliver have yet to comment on Bill’s interview with the Daily Mail.
