Jennifer Hudson granted protective order against fiancé, says she is ‘living in fear’

Jennifer Hudson and her longtime partner David Otunga are calling it quits after 10 years — and he’s going to have to keep a court ordered distance.

Hudson, 36, was granted a protective order against her former fiancé, who is also the father to their 8-year-old son, after she claimed he was a risk to both her and the child. Hudson claimed in the protection order that Otunga is “aggressive,threatning and harassing,” noting that she is “living in fear,” according to the documents obtained by TMZ.

Police went to the couple’s Chicago-area home on Thursday night and removed Otunga, a WWE wrestler, from the Hudson-owned home, where he primarily stayed to provide care for their son while the star is on the road, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

In the protective order, Hudson detailed a Wednesday encounter where Otunga grabbed her and physically pushed her out of their master suite and that it was just one instance in a series of threatening behavior. She also alleged he left his gun out on the counter, which she says she is “very sensitive” about considering her family members were shot to death.


Otunga reportedly had no knowledge Hudson was obtaining the order and therefore did not know to leave the home, according to the gossip site. Though sources told TMZ that the Academy Award-winning actress had previously demanded Otunga leave the home and when he refused, she went to obtain the court order.

His attorney, Tracy Rizzo, told TMZ, that due their ongoing custody arguments stemming from their split, Hudson filed a “meritless Petition for Order of Protection in an effort to gain an unfair advantage in the custody dispute.”

“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,” Rizzo told TMZ.

The couple became engaged in 2008 shortly after welcoming their son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., but they never officially married. That same year, Hudson’s mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew were all murdered inside their Chicago home.

Hudson also filed a petition for full physical custody.via nydailynews
