Jennifer Hudson Refuses Financial Support To David Otunga In Heated Split
Things are getting more intense after an already messy split between Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Mr. Otunga believes he should get financial support from Hudson, especially for housing, because he claims he’s been the primary caregiver of their 9-year-old son.
J Hud is totally against this claim though, saying Otunga was on the road a lot with WWE. She also accuses Otunga of trying to pursue “a career path identical to Jennifer’s evidenced by his promoting himself for his role in ‘Madea’s Family Funeral,’”
J Hud trashes the idea that Otunga should have primary custody of their kid and “denies that her working and David either not working or professing not to work makes him more fit to personally care for the child in the City where the child attends school.”
Hudson continues, “To accept David’s proposition that because he is present, he is a better parent would be to do a disservice to working parents in general and to Jennifer in particular.”
J Hud also questions Otunga’s ability to raise their son in a safe, loving and consistent environment.
Otunga is asking for housing costs, but Hudson adds that he’s perfectly capable of paying for a home if he actually tried to get a job. “Nothing entitles David to live in a home identical to Jennifer’s,” J Hud reportedly said.
She also “denies that the child support should extend to housing subsidies for David when the parties were never married,” according to court documents. And to finish off her proclamations, the court documents went on to say:
“Having a child with a celebrity should not be the basis to treat David like someone who has given birth to a child and who has no means of supporting the child. Jennifer is the one who gave birth to the minor child, who had the minor child with her as she traveled prior to the difficulties the parties experienced in their relationship.”
The two estranged lovers were set to go to trial later this month. However, it’s been postponed and the two are trying to reach a settlement. The hearing is set for next month.
