In­side Kurt and Goldie’s split

New Idea - - Contents -

Af­ter an epic 34year ro­mance, Kurt Rus­sell and Goldie Hawn are set to split. In a break-up bomb­shell that has all of Hol­ly­wood talk­ing, it’s emerged that the pair have been liv­ing sep­a­rate lives for months af­ter be­ing torn apart by years of rag­ing jeal­ousy, se­cret af­fair scan­dals and non-stop fights.

Now friends fear that Kurt, 66, and Goldie, 71, could be star­ing down the bar­rel of a $160 mil­lion split – end­ing what’s long been re­garded as Hol­ly­wood’s strong­est cou­ple.

‘They still love each other, but they need their own space,’ a source tells the Na­tional En­quirer. ‘They’ve thought about split­ting... but they’re spend­ing some time apart and see­ing how it goes.’

Sources re­veal the cou­ple are liv­ing in sep­a­rate wings of their re­cently built mansion in Brent­wood, Cal­i­for­nia, and are choos­ing to spend as much time apart as pos­si­ble.

‘They each have their own bed­room, bath­room and liv­ing area, but still share a kitchen,’ the source says. ‘When peo­ple come over to visit, they have no idea. Goldie and Kurt are es­sen­tially just room­mates now. They still bicker all the time, but at least they can re­treat to their own ar­eas of the house af­ter­wards.’

The pair met and fell in love while film­ing Swing Shift in 1983, but their re­la­tion­ship has long been rav­aged by Kurt’s jeal­ousy and ru­mours of se­cret af­fairs. It’s claimed Goldie has al­ways had a place in her heart for her ex-lover Bruno Wintzell, who dated the ac­tress for two years from 1973 and died af­ter a bat­tle with can­cer in 2002.

‘They al­ways had a special re­la­tion­ship, even af­ter she got to­gether with Kurt,’ the source ex­plains. ‘She was heart­bro­ken she didn’t get to say good­bye to him. Their ro­mance had fiz­zled out, but she never stopped car­ing about him.’

But while Goldie’s close re­la­tion­ship with Bruno has long been a source of con­tention with Kurt, it seems his wan­der­ing eye has also caused blow-ups.

‘They got into blaz­ing ar­gu­ments about Kurt’s af­fairs, and he would al­ways turn the ta­bles on Goldie and bring up Bruno,’ says the source. ‘That only made her an­grier! A cou­ple of years ago they had their biggest row yet, and Kurt ended up mov­ing out for a while.’

It’s claimed Kurt spent some time in Mal­ibu while Goldie stayed in their Pa­cific Pal­isades home, but they ul­ti­mately mended things and moved to Brent­wood ear­lier this year once con­struc­tion on their new mansion was com­pleted.

‘They thought this dream home would be a fresh start for them, but un­for­tu­nately it hasn’t changed any­thing in their re­la­tion­ship,’ the source ex­plains.

‘They want to make it work, es­pe­cially at their age, but things are still rocky. Friends are wor­ried that they will de­cide the best move for both of them is to end it once and for all.’ NI

This once-strong Hol­ly­wood cou­ple could be break­ing up for good!

The pair are ru­moured to be liv­ing in­creas­ingly sep­a­rate lives.
