Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga part ways

The 36-year-old The Voice coach has also received a protective order against ex-fiancé David

The 36-year-old The Voice coach has also received a protective order against ex-fiancé David

Hudson, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her electric performance in Dreamgirls, claimed on Wednesday she was at a recording session in Chicago with their son, David Jr., when David Sr. made a series of phone calls to reach her.

His attorney, Tracy Rizzo, told TMZ, that due their ongoing custody arguments stemming from their split, Hudson filed a "meritless Petition for Order of Protection in an effort to gain an unfair advantage in the custody dispute".

Former pro wrestler David, 37, asked Jennifer to marry him back in 2008, after less than a year of dating.

It comes after Hudson was granted a restraining order against Otunga, her fiancé of 10 years after months of "ending their relationship".


And what's troubling is The Voice coach and Academy Award victor received a protective order against Otunga - which makes you hope things are okay as the two have an 8-year-old son together. The American Idol alum recently shocked her fans by taking an order of protection against her ex-fiancé, David Otunga. "I'm not in a hurry [to get married]", Hudson told the talk show host.

"Please respect her privacy at this time", the statement concluded. Hudson's seven-year-old nephew, Julian King, had also been found dead inside a vehicle outside.

Their split - and Jennifer's restraining order - are a bit of a shock considering the Grammy award victor told Ellen in April 2017 that she and Dad are happy and in love. However, sometimes things aren't always as they seem when you're dealing with the tricky puzzle of making a relationship work when you're also trying to excel in your career. I flew out to see him; that's why I'm still here. She says, "I am now living in fear of further action David might take". But I didn't know. Her former brother-in-law, William Balfour, was convicted of the murders in 2012.
