As noted earlier, Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga have split up after nearly 10 years. Hudson filed, and was granted, a protective order.
Otunga’s attorney, Tracy Rizzo, has issued a response. He said the following to 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.”
He 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.”
The news of the break up and protective order broke on PEOPLE.com and Hudson’s rep said that the protective order was issued “in the best interest of their son.” There was nothing in the statement that accused Otunga of getting physical. Otunga’s lawyer made it clear to TMZ that he never touched her.
It looks like this could get ugly.
