Jennifer Hudson Buys Chicago Mansion

The singer and actress is movin' on up to Burr Ridge.

Published December 3, 2011

Jennifer Hudson's dress size may be shrinking, but her taste for real estate is growing larger. The dream girl is using some of that Weight Watchers money to buy herself a lavish mansion in Chicago's posh Burr Ridge neighborhood. The 12,000-square-foot pad cost $2.8 million, according to Chicago Magazine. Sounds like a lot of change, but Jen got herself a bargain: the original asking price for the stack of bricks was $4.2 million.

The six-bedroom, seven-bath home has marble floors, a white grand piano, a screening room, two laundry facilities and beautiful green spaces. Sounds like plenty of space for a family of three ... and could easily accommodate additions if J. Hud and her fiance David Otunga are planning to add more to their brood.
