And so … yet another celebrity fairytale romance comes to a crashing end. US Weekly is reporting that Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong have decided to call it quits and terminate their roughly 3-month relationship. They’re dunzo, y’all:
Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong called it quits this weekend after a three-month romance that went public when they were spotted in Austin, Texas in mid-May, Usmagazine.com exclusively reports. “There was no drama or ugliness – They just decided to end things,” a source close to the couple tells Us. “There is no hatred, just sadness.” The pair quickly became inseparable with sightings of them in Austin, New York and Los Angeles – though both dodged questions about their relationship. In the short time they were together, the 29-year-old actress was seen with the 36-year-old cyclist at many of his races and events, including his three-day Lance Armstrong Livestrong Summit in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend. It was at the conference that Hudson and Armstrong decided to go their separate ways, a source tells Us. Each had introduced the other to family. Hudson’s mom Goldie Hawn gave what seemed to be her approval at a July 1 lunch at The Ivy at the Shore. Also, Hudson’s four-year-old son Ryder went to a Father’s Day brunch with Armstrong — and dad Chris Robinson – in June. A rep for Armstrong had no comment while a rep for Hudson could not be reached.
To tell the truth, this particular hook-up lasted longer than I anticipated that it would. I’ve heard that Lance is a bit of a cad, so I’m sure he must’ve been really serious to spend 3 whole months with one chick. Kate, for her part, prolly ain’t hurtin’ for dates … she’s a major hottie who is sure to score a new dude if and when she’s ready. I gotta say, HudStrong did look very cute playing couples tennis together a few weeks ago. Ah well, I guess we’ll just have to pour one out for the late, great HudStrong and carry on as best we can.0
