Finally:

Jennifer Hudson is ready to talk about the brutal murders of her mother, brother and young nephew.
The singer will be featured in a VH1 Behind the Music special on Monday and the network touts that “for the very first time, Jennifer talks candidly about overcoming [that] painful time in her life.”

The American Idol contestant turned Grammy and Oscar winning superstar’s went through a nightmare when, in October 2008, she learned that her mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were shot to death in the family’s Chicago home, where Jennifer herself grew up. Elevating it to another level, her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, had been kidnapped by the gunman. Sadly, three days later Julian’s lifeless body was discovered discarded in a parked car.

Jennifer herself had to go to the morgue to identify young boy’s body.

Adding to the heartbreak, the man charged with the brutal murders was the estranged husband of Jennifer’s own sister Julia Hudson, who was Julian’s mother. He’s currently in prison.

This was such a sad story, it’s amazing how Jennifer bounced back so wonderfully with her new baby, new body, flourishing acting career, etc.

  • 1TruDiva w/the PlatinumVocals-I'm just too good to be true!!!

    It took insurmountable strength for her to suffer through and deal with what she did. My heart ached for her during that time. Then she shows the world where her strength derived from by singing You Pulled me Through. I tell ya, I fell in love with her all over again.

    Seven take your dumb ignorant a** somewhere, what a stupid idiot, why don’t you people just go kill yourselves so yo can go straight to hell.

  • 1TruDiva w/the PlatinumVocals-I'm just too good to be true!!!

    Clear the air???

    Clear the air about what? When you phrase it like that, you’re projecting–as if she needs to explain to us the whys and how. Almost as if YOU hold her responsible for what happened to her family.

    Personally, I don’t feel like she owes any of us anything. I’m glad she did the special so we can hear how it affected her. I don’t think she’s going to get on there and give us a bunch of theories about anything.

    Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Fantasia…none of these young ladies owe me ANYTHING but hit songs so I can continue to enjoy their music. What they do in there personal lives is of no substance to me. I may comment but at the end of the day, if they’re dating a moose and it enhances their music, I’M BUYIN’ IT!!!!

    Its been some time since it happened so she probably can talk about it without breaking down crying. What ever happened to the man arrested for killing her family? I never heard anything more about him.

  • Mic

    I don’t think hat she is obligated to come out and talk about what happened. Now if this is something that she wants to do that’s fine. This was a horrible situation for her and you already have ignorant people talkin bout she made a deal with the devil. Some people are pathetic, if it was me I would keep my personal issue to myself.

    you all are the real idiots, if you can’t see that this whole situation was fishy from jump then you are blind as hell. of course jennifer had to pay the ultimate price for her fame, that’s how it goes, i talk to industry people all the time and if you all knew half of what goes on in the industry, then maybe you wouldn’t be so quick to idolize these people. THEY ARE ALL CONTROLLED why don’t you all try reading more than gossip blogs like gossip, then you might begin waking up… GOOD LUCK SHEEPLE

    Her ghetto thug wannabe drug dealer brother is responsible for the death of his mother and nephew. Her ghetto trash lazy sister is responsible for keeping bad influences into her son’s life.

    There are a million ‘strong’ Jennifer Hudson’s all over the United States — none of them were groomed and pimped for a reality show. Jennifer Hudson is not responsible for the deaths of her brother, mother and nephew, she tried to help them. She’s strong, but she’s not unique.

    You can’t help people who won’t help themselves. And now her enabling mother and worthless brother are dead. The only real victim in this is that poor little innocent boy.

  • Jlynn

    What does she have something to promote? Because in all honesty, I don’t want to hear it! Ya Dig?! She can keep it to herself at this point. Continue to work it out with the therapist, Ms. Hudson :+)

    JH….let SILENCE Be GOLDEN…because she can easily say something (IF NOT already SCRIPTED interview) that can affect the trial…to open her ish up to a can of worms..and GOSSIP SCRUTINY…

    Some peoople just don’t know when to just STFU and NOT open up all their bizness for public VULTURE nit pickin’ and scrappin’ …

    JH…DON’T DO THIS…Remain Classy with it..RESPECT the DEAD….we don’t NEED to know…

    Sad…all around…
