Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy call off engagement

Kate Hudson and her rocker fiance Matt Bellamy have ended their engagement and separated.

Following months of speculation about the state of their romance, the Almost Famous star and Muse rocker have officially split.


Hudson's representative tells People magazine, "Kate and Matt have been separated for some time now. Despite this, they remain very close friends and committed co-parents."


Hudson and Bellamy have been engaged since 2011 and they are parents to two-year-old son Bingham.


The actress was previously married to Black Crowes rocker Chris Robinson, and they share a 10-year-old son, called Ryder. The pair split in 2006 after six years of marriage.


Hudson previously admitted that she was committed to Bellamy, but getting married was no longer a priority for her.


She told talk show The View, "We're married, I mean, we've got kids and a family and... we are in it. I think if we do get married it'll be for the kids really, whereas, for us, we're just... we're happy. There is something beautiful about the security of marriage, but I mean, we'll get there when we get there."


Reports suggest the actress has already found new love with dancer Derek Hough.
