According to the blogs this morning Jennifer Hudson has split from her long time fiance of 10 years David Otunga and took a protective order against him for the sake of their son.
This is the story via People:
They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” Hudson’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement.
“Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son,” the statement concluded.
A rep for Otunga did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE. Hudson, 36, and Otunga, 37, are parents to 8-year-old David Daniel Otunga Jr.
Former pro wrestler Otunga proposed to Hudson in September 2008 after less than a year of dating. The couple welcomed their only child nearly a year later in August 2009.
About a month after becoming engaged, Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, were found fatally shot in a Chicago home. Her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, was found dead in the backseat of a car. Hudson’s former brother-in-law William Balfour was convicted of the murders in 2012.
Of course we are not ones to gossip on this blog (side eye) but you must admit that this is kind of a little sad and at the same time, who really knows what tipped it off for Jennifer. At the end of the day Jennifer has to do whats best for her and her baby boy, I wish them all the best.
