Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy attended Goldie Hawn's charity gala together in November
The 35-year-old actress and Muse frontman Matt were seen together as recently as 21 November, at Kate's mother Goldie Hawn's inaugural 'Love in for Kids' gala in Beverly Hills, California.
The couple showed no sign that their relationship was coming to an end as they smiled and posed together for photos.
Matt and Kate had been engaged since April 2011, with Kate saying she didn't mind the long engagement as her parents Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell had been happily unmarried for 31 years.
Speaking to Women's Health for its October issue, the actress said: "My parents aren't married, and one of the reasons why they never got married is because they had been married before and they liked it the way it was. They didn't feel like they needed a piece of paper to be committed.
"So for me, I know that marriage is not a golden ticket."
