Why Jennifer Hudson Dropped Restraining Order Against Father of Her Child

Why Jennifer Hudson Dropped Restraining Order Against Father of Her Child

The relationship blossomed not long after several members of her family were murdered in cold blood by her sister's former boyfriend in their Chicago home while Hudson was away.

Otunga has remained adamant that he has not behaved threateningly towards Hudson or their son, David Jr., and sources close to him add that she is aware of this, and purposefully dodged attempting to backup her claims on the stand.

Actress-singer Jennifer Hudson (L) and pro wrestler David Otunga attend The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on January 8, 2014. The contract gives the former WWE wrestler custody over the 8 year old for the majority of the time as Hudson is now residing in London while working as a judge on the United Kingdom version of "The Voice", and regularly travels back and forth to Los Angeles for the USA version. Hudson filed for a protective order against the WWE announcer, alleging "aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior" that led to a domestic battery investigation by police. Although Jennifer's restraining order documents, she was referring to emotional scarring David Jr. would suffer if he saw his father threaten his mother.

Word is that both parties agreed to this new custody situation considering that she is in London filming "The Voice UK" and still has heavy commitments with "The Voice" back in Los Angeles. These are the weeks when Hudson's work and travel schedule is jam-packed after all. While Hudson has denied claims, Otunga believed that she had been secretly dating him for months before he confronted her.

The pair later welcomed David Jr.in August 2009.

The pair had been together for almost a decade, until earlier this year things got rocky.

A rep for the "American Idol" alum told Us Weekly in the wake of the highly publicized split that the couple had been pondering on breaking up for months prior the announcement. Pictured: The Hollywood singer arriving at the ITV Gala held at the London Palladium in England on November 9, 2017.
