Jennifer Hudson had a schedule before the murders to shoot a video, but she is still going to need some grieving time:
Jennifer Hudson has cancelled the first video shoot scheduled since the October deaths of her mother, brother and nephew, a source says. The Oscar winner, 27, planned on shooting the clip for “If It Isn’t Love” in L.A. next week, her J Records rep confirmed to the Associated Press Dec. 9. But “the video was set up before the tragedy and she felt like she should finish what she started, but she’s realized that she’s not ready to go back to work,” a source tells Us. “It’s too early,” the source adds. A personal rep for Hudson, however, calls the original video plans “speculation. “The video shoot was never confirmed, so there was nothing to cancel,” the rep tells Usmagazine.com. “[J Records' statement] was erroneous.” Darnell Donerson, 57; brother, Jason, 29, and 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, were fatally shot in Chicago Oct. 24. William Balfour — the estranged husband of Jennifer’s sister, Julia — was charged with the murders Dec. 2.
We hope it isn’t her manager or money hungry P.R. people pushing for her to hit the scene again before she is ready. Some people would not make it out of a situation like this at all, let alone be ready to work so soon. Take all the all the time you need, J. Hud.
