Hooray for progress! After Bill Hudson publicly disowned his kids, Oliver and Kate Hudson, when a bitter feud blew up, Oliver’s pseudo-father Kurt Russell revealed that the biological father and son are slowly mending fences.
Blood runs deep. Despite Bill, 65, and Oliver Hudson, 38, engaging in a nasty family feud, which heightened on Father’s Day, Kurt Russell — the longtime partner of Oliver and Kate‘s mom, Goldie Hawn — threw quite the shocker when he revealed that Oliver is finally talking again to his biological dad, Bill. Such great news!
If there’s anyone who knows what’s really going on behind closed doors between Bill and Oliver, it’s Kurt. The Furious 7 actor has been a father figure to both Oliver and Kate for more than thirty years. “I understood Oliver’s sense of humor and since then, there’s been some nice back and forth between Bill and Oliver that’s nice to see,” Kurt told E! News at Comic-Con. “You want people to enjoy life as much as they can. We live in a world that if you say something or do something, it can be latched onto [you] for 24 hours or 48 hours.”
Wow, it’s so great to hear that Bill and Oliver are on the road to recovering their relationship — we hope Kate is, too. Of course, Kurt refers to Oliver’s “sense of humor” being the sarcastic message he posted on Instagram on Father’s Day, writing, “Happy Abandonment Day,” alongside a vintage photo of him, Kate and Bill.
The musician took that to heart, as he fired a scathing shot back at Oliver and Kate, calling it a “dagger to the heart” while claiming he never wanted to see his kids ever again! It was such a nasty situation all around. It’s great to see things are patched up — or at least on their way to being there.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Bill and Oliver have truly forgiven each other? Let us know!
