Kate and Oliver Hudson have been disowned by their dad. According to Gawker, Bill Hudson has disowned his two eldest children, saying that he doesn’t recognize either of them as his own after spending years away from them. The “announcement” came just days after Oliver posted a hurtful photo on Instagram in honor of Father’s Day. You can read the caption below.
“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,” Bill said.
Kate and Oliver may have been disowned many years ago, after their mom, Goldie Hawn, partnered with Kurt Russell. Bill Hudson says that he was shut out by his ex-wife, and that she wanted to create a “perfect family” with her new man.
“When we split up, she never had a bad word to say about me. But when Kurt 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.’ I believe the drip, drip, drip of poison which started when they were kids finally took hold. Goldie wanted to create this myth of a perfect family with Kurt and she wanted me out.”
According to Star Pulse, Bill, 65, wants nothing to do with Kate or Oliver. No word yet on whether either of them will take his suggestion and change their last name from “Hudson” to something else.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Bill and Goldie divorced in 1981 after five years of marriage. He was an active parent to both Kate and Oliver until Goldie met Kurt Russell two years later. Despite trying to fight for his kids in court, it was clear that they were drifting away from him, and starting a new relationship with another man. As many men can tell you, this is heartbreaking, and it’s something very difficult to have to go through.
