Jennifer Hudson and fiancé David Otunga have split after 10 years together, and a protective order has been granted to Jennifer.
‘They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,’ one of Jennifer’s reps told People. ‘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.’
‘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,’ David’s attorney Tracy Rizzo said. ‘Mr Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties’ only child.
‘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 added.
The couple got engaged in 2008 and welcomed the arrival of their son in 2009. They are currently in a custody battle over their eight-year-old son.
