Kate Hudson and husband Chris Robinson split

LOS ANGELES - "You, Me and Dupree" star Kate Hudson and her rocker husband Chris Robinson have separated after six years of marriage, a spokesman for the actress said today.

Publicist Brad Cafarelli confirmed that Hudson, 27, and Robinson, 39, had split. He offered no details. The couple, who were married on New Year's Eve in 2000, have a 2-year-old son, Ryder.

A spokesman for Robinson said he had no comment on news of the separation, which was first reported by People magazine on its website.

Hudson, the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn, became a star in her own right after playing the rock groupie Penny Lane in the 2000 film "Almost Famous," which earned her an Academy Award nomination.

Robinson is lead singer for the Black Crowes, best known for such hits as "Hard to Handle" and "She Talks to Angels."
