There’s nothing like Hollywood family drama.
Kate Hudson’s father, Bill Hudson, has a tell-all book coming out later this year and he apparently saved some ink to tell the world that the actress is a “brat.”
“Life in the spotlight is not without its consequences, and the Hudson family was no exception,” the books website says. “After their divorce [from Goldie Hawn], Bill found himself in the middle of the controversial issue of parental alienation. His rights as a father to see his children were often played out in the media because Oliver and Kate became actors themselves.”
The book is titled: 2 Versions: The Other Side of Fame and Family, and has a publication date of Nov. 1.
“Now Bill is ready to share his fascinating Hollywood stories of life as a teen idol and husband to two famous women, Goldie Hawn and Cindy Williams (Laverne & Shirley),” says the website. “His book also talks about how parents can often become alienated from their children when they don’t have primary custody. Hopefully, at some point, this family will be able to have a healthy adult relationship before it’s too late.”
According to U.S. Weekly, Bill hasn’t been involved in Kate’s life for a while. He married Hawn in 1976 but the couple divorced four years later. Kate and her brother were later raised by Hawn and her life partner Kurt Russell.
Radar Online reported in January that Bill was claiming that Kate was refusing to visit her grandmother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.
“Kate doesn’t have to talk to me and she doesn’t have to give her a dime of her millions. All I want is for her to call and say, ‘Hi grandma’, before it’s too late,” Bill said, according to Radar Online.
The story continues: “I love Kate, but… She has done stuff which is just awful. She is a spoiled brat in my eyes and at the end of the day, she should meet her little sister. I should meet my grandchild and she should help her grandmother.”
Some of Kate’s popular movies include: “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and “Almost Famous.”
