It’s Over For Jennifer Hudson and Her Longtime Fiancé David Otunga

After ten years and living as a couple with their 8 year old son, Jennifer Hudson has decided it’s time to call it quits.

The 36 year old singer has been in a long term relationship with former WWE wrestler David Otunga since 2007.

But things have taken a serious turn. It’s been reported by TMZ that Hudson filed a restraining order against Otunga.

According to a statement from Otunga’s attorney  “David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now,” says attorney Tracy M. Rizzo. “However, when it became apparent to Ms. Hudson that Mr. Otunga would be the parent granted residential care of the child, as a result of Mr. Otunga being the child’s primary caregiver while Ms. Hudson pursues her career all over the world, Ms. Hudson decided to file a meritless Petition for Order of Protection in an effort to gain an unfair advantage in the custody dispute.”

Rizzo continued, “As a result of Mr. Otunga’s career in the WWE, Ms. Hudson felt that she could give an award winning performance in court to portray herself as the victim. Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son, and it is unfortunate, especially in today’s climate, that she would feel the need to make these false allegations against him. Mr. Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties’ only child.”

Additionally, Otunga is claiming that Hudson was secretly dating music producer Mali Music.

Hudson’s rep confirmed to People magazine that the two have “been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” before adding that the decorated entertainer has taken actions to protect herself and their 8-year-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr.

In the protective order, Hudson detailed several incidents as to why she filed the restraining order.

Hudson claims the Otunga has been making aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward her and that she has been ” living in fear of further action David might take.”

The singer states that Otunga encouraged their son, David Jr, to take photos of her at a Wednesday recording session in order to try to prove she was dating one of the producers and that when she returned home from the recording studio Otunga was angry, grabbed their son by his hand and pushed Hudson out of the master suite. She claims their son, makeup artist and assistant all witnessed the incident.

Additionally, Hudson claims that Otunga has been showing a pattern of escalating and threatening behavior and that he would leave a holstered gun, that he said was a movie prop, on the kitchen counter that was intended to intimidate her because of her uncomfortableness with guns.

Hudson’s protective order was granted and police removed their son from Otunga’s custody. The order also grants Hudson exclusive possession of their residence and Otunga has been ordered to stay away.

Nobody wins when a relationship fails, but when a child is involved, things can become totally misconstrued by one parent when it comes to who wants to become the custodial parent and not share joint custody.

I hope Jennifer has good reasons for her actions and not use the court system to alienate Otunga from his son.

Unfortunately sometimes when you play house, things become ugly when you’re not feelin each other anymore.

Good luck to both parties and we’ll pray that little Otunga Jr., remains unscathed by all this confusion.

When Elijah Silvera was dropped off at Pre-K, his parents had no idea it would be their last time seeing him alive.

The 3 year old was served a grilled cheese sandwich at a pre-K, even though the school was aware and they had written documentation that the boy had a deadly dairy allergy. 

Elijah went into anaphylactic shock on November 3, 2017, at the Seventh Avenue Center for Family Services in Manhattan, NY and was taken to Harlem Hospital, where he died.

His devastated parents want to know how it happened when it was completely preventable.

The pre-kindergarten school closed on Wednesday by city health officials for failing to follow its written safety plan and failing to adequately supervise a child.

On Thursday, Parents whose children also attended the preschool want to know why they didn’t find out about Elijan’s death sooner. 

Elijah leaves behind his father and mother, his 5-year-old brother and dozens of friends and family members.

A GoFund Me account has been set up by the family to help with unpaid time off from work, funeral and memorial expenses and a second autopsy.
