Owen Wilson's Suicide Attempt Likely Due To Split With Kate Hudson

Owen Wilson allegedly attempted to commit suicide over his split from Kate Hudson.

The Wedding Crashers star - who is currently recovering in hospital after he reportedly slashed his wrists and took a pill overdose - was said to be distraught when he saw pictures of his ex-girlfriend with her new man, Dax Shepherd.

Sources claim Owen then attempted to take his own life, with his elder brother finding him unconscious at Owen's Los Angeles home.

Witnesses said the 38-year-old actor was then wheeled out of the house on a stretcher with bandages on his wrists and taken to a nearby hospital.

David Perel, editor-in-chief of America's National Enquirer magazine, said: "Owen Wilson has now been transferred to another Los Angeles area hospital. His elder brother Andrew and younger brother Luke are with him.

"Andrew found him after the suicide attempt and called an ambulance. Both of Owen's wrists were slashed superficially and Owen had taken an overdose of pills. He was found with a nearly empty bottle of pills next to him at his house."

The comic star also released a statement, saying: "I ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time."

Owen and Kate - who has a three-year-old son, Ryder, from her marriage to rocker Chris Robinson - split in June, after constantly arguing about Owen's wild behaviour.

Kate began dating Employee of the Month star Shepherd in July and sources claim she is smitten with him.
