Bill Hudson has been estranged from Kate Hudson, his daughter with Goldie Hawn, for decades, and the actress claims that their strained relationship (or lack thereof) has affected her own romantic life.
Their relationship really soured when Oliver Hudson, Kate’s brother and Bill and Goldie’s son, posted an Instagram photo of Bill, himself and Kate with the caption “Happy Abandonment Day” on Father’s Day in 2015.
“I say to them now, ‘I set you free,” Bill told The Daily Mail in June 2015. “I had five birth children but I now consider myself a father of three. I no longer recognize Oliver and Kate as my own … [Oliver] is dead to me now, as is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth.”
