Jennifer Hudson to Marry Reality Show Dude

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Jennifer Hudson is engaged to boyfriend, David Otunga, aka Punk from I Love New York:

“I can confirm that Jennifer got engaged to her boyfriend David on Friday night in L.A.” says the rep. Otunga, who is known as “Punk” from the reality show I Love New York 2, popped the question with a Neil Lane diamond ring on the Dreamgirls Oscar winner’s 27th birthday. The couple, who have been dating less than a year, both hail from Chicago. Professionally, it is a busy time for Hudson as well. Her debut solo album, Jennifer Hudson, will be in stores Sept. 30, and her next film, The Secret Life of Bees opens on Oct. 17.

SMH. Dude just looks like a buster, but if Jen’s happy we’re happy. The pickings are quite slim these days. Congrats to them..

    It is NEVER ok to settle! Being a big girl myself, I feel it is important to still look for men who compliments you as a person. I feel as if she could have gotten better. I mean what does he do for a living?

  • jerrica

    at least he got money and aint no bum

  • Afro - Latina

    He’s black?!? Whaaaaat? I can’t believe she did this.

  • jerrica

    hes a well established lawyer

  • CiCi

    This guy is an opportunist. He feigned his affections for New York and he is probably doing the same. He just caught a bigger fish.

    I hope she wakes up. Most of those contestants on these reality dating shows are hard up for fame and will do just about anything to achieve stardom.

    Jen is smart enough to know that despite David being on I Love New York he’s a well established lawyer who went to Harvard. He could help her negotiate contracts so I think this is a good look for her. I have no reason to hate because at least Jen is getting somebody with a career of their own who can be helpful to her and not some K-fraud.

  • Afro - Latina

    Harvard graduate?!?! Oh my lord. I can’t believe it.

  • Afro - Latina

    As you can see I love handsome nerds. 🙂

  • CiCi

    I don’t care if he is a lawyer, he is still an opportunist in my opinion.

    What was his true reason for going on that show to degrade himself. New York’s personality is disusting and so is her appearance. He saw an opportunity to be famous. He does not fool me at all.

  • dionna

    Harvard didn’t teach him anything about having cheesy assed taste, I guess. That’s too bad, but he seemed like a nice, articulate guy on the show. For some reason I’m feeling like he’s beneath her, but I’m sure he’s far more intellectual, I guess they balance out as far as personal accomplishments are concerned.


    Wow! Who would want New York’s leftovers. ILL!!! Well anyway congrats to them.

  • LdyK

    I hope they both get aids tests

  • Afro - Latina

    You ladies have a point. A man who is willing to be with New York probably isn’t a great catch even if he did attend Harvard University. I hope Jennifer takes him to a local clinic to see if he has any sexually transmitted diseases, because that is the last thing a woman should get from her husband-to-be.

  • tara

    congratulation to her .i think she is so beautiful and sexual.i have seen some more hot videoes about her on ””””’that’s wonderful!

  • Tikki

    I won’t be too surprised if she ends up like Star Jones cause in my opinion, he looks kinda suspect. Love her but she’s starting to become a little too hollywood. Whatever happened to her long term boyfriend that became her fiance and the athlete she was dating last year?

  • Cherri

    EEEl He swapped spit with New York. He just wants to be famous. She picked a Harvard graduate lawyer loser.

  • kandykane

    wooow…I missed this one

  • WhatsYoursIsMine-Fabulousness for less than $10 a day!


    I LOVED Punk, and I’m sorry, I didn’t believe any of I Love New York was real when it came down to the men that made it the farthest. She was acting the entire time, I believe Punk, The Entertainer, and a few others didn’t know how much of it was staged.

    But hey, he was trying to get into entertainment law, so do what you gotta do (as far as New York is concerned).

    I did like his mother and his sister, I LOVED how they said NOTHING to New York and her mother. HILARIOUS!

  • beauty on lock

    Jennifer wants a trophy. That’s what it looks like to me. That’s why I love Beyonce’s choice in Jay-Z, Bey wanted and got a man, not just a trophy. Best wishes anyway to J-Hud and her fiance.


    damn that’s the best that she can do? jennifer get a rich white man like naomi campbell. he looks like an al reynolds kinda gay oops i mean guy! get that negro tested for aids please!
