Does Kate Hudson already have a new man in her life after calling off her engagement to Matthew Bellamy?! 

The 35-year-old beauty has found herself at the center of speculative reports claiming the Almost Famous star has moved on with Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough

News of Hudson and Bellamy's split broke on Monday, with the Muse frontman's rep telling E! News, "Kate and Matt have been separated for some time now. Despite this, they remain very close friends and committed co-parents."

That same day, the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star was romantically linked to Hough, with whom she has been longtime friends. A source tells E! News that the two were spotted kissing at the Nice Guy restaurant in Los Angeles on Friday. 

Hudson's rep did not respond to E! News' request for comment, while Hough's rep said that she does not comment on her client's personal life. 

Goldie Hawn's daughter, who has two children—son Ryder, 10, from her first marriage to Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson as well as Bingham Bellamy, whom she and Matt welcomed in 2011—has previously expressed her admiration for Hough in a 2013 interview with Shape magazine. 

"My heart is really in contemporary jazz, but lately I've been ballroom dancing with Derek Hough," she told the publication of the DWTS pro. "It's been a real blast." 

What's more? Hough attended the blond stunner's Sons of Anarchy-themed Halloween party where the two were seen dancing up a storm (Bellamy was also present at the bash). 

However, the plot thickens, as Derek has been recently dating dancer Justene Alpert, and while it's unclear how serious their relationship is, a second source tells E! News that, as of Friday, the duo was still dating and she even spent some time with him over Thanksgiving. The source adds that Hough has met Alpert's parents and the brunette stunner is also featured in Juliane Hough's Instagram post from Saturday, in which her pals, including fellow DWTS pros Mark Ballas and Witney Carson, are having a blast playing with her pups.
