Jennifer Hudson's Half Brother Arrested for Stabbing a Man

Steve Simpson attacked estranged wife's alleged lover.

Published August 20, 2014

Jennifer Hudson's half brother Steve Simpson has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a man in the face, TMZ reports. In an eerie coincidence, the assault was a crime of passion against a person Simpson believed to be involved with his estranged wife.

The situation is similar to the one in which Hudson lost three members of her family. William Balfour, the actress's sister Julia's boyfriend, stabbed and killed her mother, brother and nephew in a jealous rage. Balfour was found guilty of murder in 2012 after Hudson and others testified against him in court.

Simpson, meanwhile, is under arrest in Paw Paw, Michigan. He is expected to be charged with home invasion and attempted murder.
