Jennifer Hudson splits from fiancé, gets protective order against him

Singer and 'The Voice' Jennifer Hudson is splitting from her fiancé, David Otunga after almost ten years.

According to reports, the split also includes a protective order. 

A rep for Hudson confirmed her split from the former pro wrestler, stating that her decision to get the protective order was, "solely taken in the best interest of their son”. 

Otunga and Hudson got engaged in 2008 and welcomed their son, David Otunga Jr. in 2009. 

Otunga's attorney, Tracy M. Rizzo, issued a statement saying that "David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now."

The statement continued: "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."

"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".
