WWE Superstar David Otunga and his fiancee of 10 years, Jennifer Hudson, have reportedly split up. The news was first broke after Hudson released the following statement:
“Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son.”
Hudson also released a statement to People Magazine regarding the matter:
“They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months.”
Otunga’s attorney responded to the allegations from Hudson, which sparked the protective order, in a statement 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. 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.”
Otunga is currently scheduled to serve as a panelist for this weekend’s Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV), however, in light of recent circumstances that decision remains up in the air.
