Bill Hudson publicly disowned his celebrity children, Kate and Oliver Hudson, in response to Oliver’s insulting Father’s Day post on Instagram, USA Today reports.
Bill said in an interview with The Daily Mail that he no longer recognizes Kate and Oliver as his children. “I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth,” said Bill in his angry response to Oliver’s Instagram.
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.
On Father’s Day this year, Oliver posted a photo of himself and his sister Kate, when the two were kids, along with their former musician father and he captioned the photo, “Happy Abandonment Day.”
Fox News reports that Bill also slammed his ex-wife, Goldie Hawn, and called her out for “poisoning” their children against him. He says in spite of his efforts to remain in Oliver and Kate’s lives as they were growing up, “she described me as an absent father.”
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 [Russell] and she wanted me out. (…) She gave interviews about her ‘wonderful’ relationship with Kurt and how the kids called him ‘Pa.’ She described me as an absent father. I’d call her and go, ‘Goldie, how can you say that?’ but she’d just reply: ‘It’s a better story.’
Both Oliver and Kate posted photos of themselves with Kurt on Father’s Day, insinuating that they do recognize him as their father.
“I don’t want to see either of my eldest children ever again,” Bill stresses. “It’s over.”
Meanwhile, after an 18-year-old teenager finally met her estranged father the two fell in love and plan to marry in New Jersey.
