Muse’s Matt Bellamy and Kate Hudson confirm they have separated

Couple began relationship in 2010 and have a son together

Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has split from his partner, actress Kate Hudson.

The couple confirmed the news overnight via Hudson’s publicist. They have one child together, Bingham Hawn Bellamy, who was born in July 2011.

Hudson’s representative told People: “Kate and Matt have been separated for some time now. Despite this, they remain very close friends and committed co-parents.”

Bellamy and Hudson started their relationship in 2010 with Hudson falling pregnant with their son two months into the relationship. They got engaged in April 2011 but never married.

Meanwhile, Muse are working on their seventh studio album, which is due to be released at some point in 2015. The band, who are among the favourites to headline Glastonbury in 2015, are recording the follow-up to their sixth album ‘The 2nd Law’, released in 2012, with AC/DC producer Mutt Lange.

More recently, Bellamy has hinted at some of the themes and sounds set to appear on the band’s forthcoming album.
