Chris Robinson, Kate Hudson Headed Back To Court Over Child Custody

Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson is headed back into court with his ex-wife, actress Kate Hudson, over child custody issues.

The two were married from 2000-2007 and had one son, Ryder, who's now 13. Robinson -- who currently leads the Chris Robinson Brotherhood -- has filed papers with California's Superior Court asking to re-evaluate the custody arrangement; The matter has been ongoing since 2016, but Robinson and Hudson have not been able to agree on terms. Both will be interviewed by a court evaluator, as will Ryder; The evaluator's report will be committed to the court, which will determine "a parenting plan that addresses legal custody and physical custody, including where the child shall reside and visitation orders based upon the best interests of the child."

Hudson has been ordered to cover the cost of the process, which is due to be completed by June 30. Robinson, meanwhile, is working on a new album for the Brotherhood, which is expected out later this year.
