Muse frontman Matt Bellamy broke his silence about his split from fiancee Kate Hudson this week.

The singer took to Twitter Tuesday and addressed fans regarding the end of his engagement to the 35-year-old actress.

X17Online.com was the first to report Monday that Hudson and Bellamy called it quits on their three-year engagement. A rep for Hudson later confirmed the news to People magazine, revealing the couple had already been separated.

"Kate and Matt have been separated for some time now," the rep said. "Despite this, they remain very close friends and committed co-parents."

The two got engaged in April 2011 and welcomed son Bingham "Bing" Hawn that July. Hudson opened up about her nontraditional relationship in an interview with Women's Health for the magazine's October 2014 issue.

"It's a long engagement. I think the best part is that knowing you're working towards the idea of a commitment that is hopefully as long of a stretch as you can pull it and forever seems beautiful… I think it's a real journey," she said. "There is a traditional meet, fall in love, get married, have children. And I am working on a very non-traditional life, and it’s just happening that way. But I look forward to the wedding day because when that happens to me, marriage what I really love about it is bringing the families together, and the kids."

Since the split was confirmed, reports have circulated that Hudson is currently romancing Derek Hough. E! News reported the two were spotted together at the Nice Guy restaurant in Los Angeles Friday.
