According to reports, Jennifer Hudson and longtime fiancé David Otunga have split after 10 years. Hudson also filed to have a restraining order taken out against Otunga to which Otunga’s attorney, Tracy Rizzo, says is a move made out of fear of losing custody of their child. Rizzo told TMZ:
David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now. 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. […] 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.
Jennifer Hudson’s representative told People Magazine that the restraining order was requested “in the best interest of their son.” It is important to note that Otunga isn’t being accused of getting physical with Hudson.
