Jennifer Hudson Remembers Slain Family: “I Have The Greatest Sadness To Be Sad Over”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Hudson Family Murders, Jesus Take The Wheel, News

Jennifer Hudson still remembers the traumatic death of her family on 20/20:

Jennifer Hudson broke down in tears tonight as she recalled her murdered mother as ‘the perfect mother in every way’. Hudson wept as she told how her faith helped her get through the murders of her mother Darnell, brother Jason and seven-year-old nephew Julian. ‘No matter what, He’s always there – and that’s the thing that keeps me,’ she told ABC TV’s 20/20. ‘And I feel that that’s the greatest gift.

‘I could not and would not be sitting her talking to you right now, this happy, talking to you without Him. It’s my joy.’ Hudson’s family were brutally murdered in 2008. Her brother-in-law William Balfour was charged with the crime. But Hudson also spoke lovingly of her joy in her 19-month-old baby son David Jr, who she says weighs himself every morning just like his mother does, and also her music which she calls her ‘home’. ‘I have the greatest sadness to be sad over – but then look at the joy I have, too,’ she smiled.

    I love Jennifer Hudson also, but I wish the media would remember her sister Julia not only lost her mother and brother, she lost her baby also. He was her Son but will always in the media, be just Jennifer Hudson’s nephew.

    • SisterSarah

      Well, Jennifer is the one in the limelight, not Julia.

      And I hate to even say this but…Julia’s always been a little suspect to me, KWIM? I never believed she was playing with a full deck to begin with but her behavior after the funeral just confirmed that something is definitely going on with that woman. I hope Jen has more extended family to rely on than Julia!

      Julia got pregnant shortly after Jen right? Does anyone know how she and the baby are doing?

  • JustAshley

    I can’t imagine losing so many immediate family members so quickly. I’m glad she’s doing so well now.

    • Glok!

      GOSH YOU GUYS REALLY FELL FOR THIS HOOK LINE AND SINKER. THESE WERE SACRIFICES THAT SHE MADE FOR HER SUCCESS AND CAREER. THOSE IN THE KNOW UNDERSTAND THIS. YOU GUYS NEED TO SERIOUSLY DO YOUR RESEARCH ABOUT THESE HIGH PAY ENTERTAINERS AND WHY THEY ARE GIVEN ALL THESE RICHES AND WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO TO OBTAIN THEM. AT LEAST BECOME AWARE BEFORE YOU START WORSHIPPING THEM.

  • Gimmeabreak78

    Some folks will believe any silly Illuminati/secret society rumor they hear. All it takes is one person starting a rumor and a few gossip hounds willing to run with it.

    • Gimmeabreak78

      @Amber:

      I would be careful about speaking in such sweeping generalizations about all black men. My issue with the whole Illuminati/secret society nonsense is that if these societies are supposed to be so clandestine, how come so many people know about it and accuse so many people of being members of them without any proof whatsoever? The only “evidence” of membership ever offered is either of the “he said/she said” variety, or simply an a.s.sertion with absolutely no facts to back it up.

  • likostar

    @glok
    It is strange to see a basic hood chick with no talent or personality become a propped up megastar…
    The murders just add to the strangeness.

  • Juliemango

    The illuma is far from fiction. On jen she showed symp for her lost ones, what can i say!!!

  • you reckon?

    SMDH. This woman has experienced such a tragedy in her life and we get all this garbarge written on this thread. Jennifer is just as talented as Beyonce, Brittany or any other of these singers out today. She is pretty too. I guess it all must be a conspiracy? Sharock1 you are not the only one that feels contaminated. I only recently start visiting this place, its a guilty pleasure, but I am truly debating if some of the stench is worth it at times.

  • Dr. Watson

    In life you will often find that it was just one person who had they presence of mind and wisdom to speak up that prevented the worst tragedy. You know like the time your good friend or decent person explained to you dont let bums drag you down with them. Because in the gutter the bum will on say “now look at yout high society azz down in the gutter with me”. SOMEBODY HAS TO BE THE VOICE OF REASON IN AN ANGRY MOB! SOME POST REALLY DO GIVE OTHERS ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT THINGS.

    • Sharock1

      Thanks again, but please don’t blame me when If I feel like I have disinfect myself after each sesion.

  • XcluSive

    Who Let The MonKey Out The Cage (GLoK)…..LOL

  • Dr. Watson

    @Sharock1
    By all means🙂 That is also one of the reasons we pray for others and ourselves.

    Everyone here knows that something is not right about the JHud family murders. Its all too suspect and her sisters acted like she was relieved and happy after her family was killed like that. No, its a lot more to it. JHud blew up huge after that. I hope she can sleep at night, but I don’t think she can. Guilt is making her speak out the way she is now. That is also why Kanye is always wasted. God gives you a conscience and they forgot about that part.

  • STAR

    Also how do you leave your mother and family in a high crime infested area when you are making millions of dollars? She gave the excuse about her not wanting to move, because she knew the public would be shocked. She could have bought her a house in a nice area and gave her the keys, but no, she left her and her family there. Big fat sister is in on it too, you can tell.

  • Whatev

    What God is she referring to? All this “He” and “Him”, not once mentioning Jesus name, or “heavenly father”? Hmmm… I too always knew the brother in law didn’t do it, and I believe he was released quickly. Whoever said JHud had millions and should have put mom in a better hood, she didn’t have millions when they died. That came after.
