After being engaged for ten years, Jennifer Hudson has split from David Otunga. In addition, according to TMZ, she filed a restraining order.
Take a look at the couple in happier times in the BET Breaks video, above.
David Otunga has already responded via a length statement from his lawyer, "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." So basically the attorney is saying Jennifer cannot be the primary caregiver because she is working? Celebrities do this all the time, it's called on the road nannys!
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."
In today's climate? An "award winning performance in court"? Damn, this looks like the seperation will get extremely ugly. Nonetheless, we are sure this is a rough time and we wish Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga all the best.
