Goldie is yet to identify the name of her dear friend, but she has family and friends surrounding her to help her work through the grief, including her partner of 33 years, Kurt Russell.
The loved-up pair (but happily unmarried) have recently been traveling together, snapping their adventures along the way. Images show the duo enjoying hiking, bike riding, and wine-accompanied picnics in Greece.
Russell, 66, recently gushed about his long-time lover, as they both received matching stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in May: “Goldie, to you, I owe my wonderful life. Simply put, Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don’t hold a candle to that,” he continued. “There’s no one else I’d rather be next to than Goldie Hawn.”
We’re not crying, you are.
Our thoughts and sympathies are with Goldie and the family of her dear friend.
