Jennifer Hudson’s Ex Claps Back, Wants Judge to Force Her To Speak About ‘Issues’ Under Oath
The custody battle between singer Jennifer Hudson and her ex-fiance David Otunga has been ongoing for a while, and both sides have been trading blows with no signs of letting up any time soon. Now, David’s legal team is pressuring Jennifer to hit the stand under oath to discuss all of their relationship issues, in hopes that it will add favor to his side of the case.
A Nasty Breakup
Jennifer and David were both engaged for years, however the two of them called it off back in 2017 before they could make that trip down the aisle towards marriage. The emotions surrounding the custody battle, involving their son David Jr., have always been tense including, as The Blast reports, an order of protection against David which granted Jennifer temporary full custody at the time.
According to documents filed in Chicago, Hudson was granted an emergency order of protection after filing on November 16.
Hudson claims on November 15, Otunga pushed her while she was holding their child. She says, “I am afraid that D. Otunga will continue to physically intimidate and abuse me. He has a history of physical and emotional abuse, and I am afraid that his physical attacks will continue to escalate, especially due to the contentious nature of our parentage proceedings.”
David’s team refuted those claims, stating “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. Mr. Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties’ only child.”
Though Jennifer eventually dropped the petition for the order of protection things have only gotten nastier between the two of them, usually with Jennifer making all of the demands in court. But all of that is about to change since David is requesting Jennifer discuss their relationship issues under oath in front of a judge.
