We hate to hear of Love breakups and this one is getting messy! Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga called off their relationship, and the singer has been granted a protective order against her former fiancé who is the father of her 8-year-old son. According to court documents she claims Otunga is a risk to both her and the child. Hudson claimed in the protection order that Otunga is “aggressive, threatning and harassing,” and said she has been living in fear. Apparently the breakup has been on-going for months and TMZ reports one of the reasons may be that Otunga believes Jennifer has been cheating with her music producer..
“I seek this Order of Protection against David and request that this Court grant me exclusive possession of my residence on an emergency basis because of David’s increasingly aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me,” Hudson, 36, wrote in the papers on Thursday, November 16. “I believe that if David is given notice, he will physically harm me, continually harass me, and/or take action against my property, or seek to sequester my son, David, Jr.”
In response, Otunga’s attorney, Tracy M. Rizzo, released a statement to Us Weekly saying: “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.”
Otunga, 37, and Hudson, 36, got engaged in September 2008 after dating for less than a year.
