Britney Spears and Cade Hudson are friends until the end of the world.
Spears and her husband, Sam Asghari, sparked breakup rumors when the pop star was seen enjoying a tropical getaway in Mexico with her manager and longtime friend.
As Asghari brushed aside speculation that their marriage was in jeopardy, fans were wondering why Spears was spending so much time vacationing with Hudson.
Here are six things to know about the man who holds the “Toxic” singer company on the beautiful beaches of Mexico while Asghari defends his relationship.
Big Time CAA Representative
Hudson works as an agent for the Creative Arts Agency, according to LinkedIn.
Around 2014, he started working for the Los Angeles-based talent company known for its impressive clientele.
It also represents stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Bella Thorne, and Johnny Knoxville, according to Celebrity Service.
Hudson previously worked as an advertiser for Full Picture, a marketing and brand management firm with clients in the fashion, entertainment and other industries, the LA Times reported.
Friends of the Spear for Years
Hudson has been friends with Spears for decades.
For better or for worse, Hudson has sided with the “Crossroads” actress and has been running in Spears’ close circle for years.
Hudson maintains a fairly private presence on social media, but he and Spears have occasionally been photographed.
In 2014, she was seen giving Spears a big kiss on the cheek, in 2015 the BFFs were photographed dancing together, and in 2017 she was seen walking into her birthday celebration.
Now mind your business bitch
Hudson began working as Spears’ manager after his former manager of 25 years, Larry Rudolph, stepped down in 2021.
“I was actually hired at the request of Britney to help manage and assist her career,” Rudolph wrote at the time. “And as her manager, I believe it’s in Britney’s interest that I resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.”
“I wish Britney all the health and happiness in the world and if she ever needs me again, I will be there for her as I always have.”
Sexual harassment allegations
Hudson made headlines in 2017 when she was hit on sexual misconduct charges.
In 2013, he allegedly offered sex to an actor in exchange for access to directors and a movie star, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Text messages received by the newspaper show Hudson offering to give oral sex to straight Sean Rose and demanding up to $1,000 from the actor.
Rose declined the offers and said she felt “embarrassed and humiliated”, but Hudson denied the accusations.
“After seven years of being my social media friend and liking my posts, Sean is now accusing me of soliciting a sex act from him,” he said through his attorney at the time. “As I recall, he laughed and remained my friend on social media.”
“I have the utmost sympathy for victims of harassment and abuse, but this is not the case,” he added.
A #FreeBritney supporter
Hudson was an outspoken defender of Spears as he fought to end his 13-year conservatism under his father, Jamie Spears.
“This is a violation of basic human rights taken away from someone. I kept my mouth shut due to fear of losing my job as his manager and the threats of the man we know who I had sacrificed my ass for 15 years, but I won’t even do it. honor your name. My silence is officially over,” he wrote in July 2021 (via TMZ).
It’s unclear who Hudson is referring to, but many think he’s referring to his former manager, who has resigned. She also criticized Britney’s family for placing her under the conservatory as she struggled to cope with the pressures of fame as a young mother.
“As a 26-year-old new mom being accused of some wrongdoing and being taken under a never-ending conservatory with 100 cameras on her face every day waiting to document any wrongdoing she does?” he said, describing the legal settlement as “sexism at best.”
Britney’s conservatory officially ended in November 2021.
friends with celebrities
Britney isn’t the only A-lister Hudson hangs out with.
Robert Pattinson, Rachel Zoe, Suki Waterhouse, Hayden Panettiere, Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Darren Criss, Ashley Benson, James Marsden, Ryan Phillippe, Demi Lovato, Kelsea Balleri, and Sanaa Lathan reported on TMZ.
As if that wasn’t enough, she’s also good friends with Paris Hilton and has been spotted with the hotel heir several times over the years.
Hudson also seems tight with Emma Roberts, as they are both seen holding the actress’s hand as they attend Hilton’s wedding in 2021.
