Jennifer Hudson Granted Restraining Order Against David Otunga After Couple Calls it Quits


According to TMZ, David Otunga and Jennifer Hudson have called it quits after more than nine years of being engaged. What’s more, it looks like the Grammy award-winning artist has been granted a restraining order.

Otunga’s attorney Tracy Rizzo made it very clear in a statement to TMZ that the WWE Superstar “has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son.” There has been no claim to the contrary by Hudson or anyone from her legal team at this time.

“David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now. However, when it became apparent to Ms. Hudson that Mr. Otunga would be the parent granted residential care of the child, as a result of Mr. Otunga being the child’s primary caregiver while Ms. Hudson pursues her career all over the world, Ms. Hudson decided to file a meritless Petition for Order of Protection in an effort to gain an unfair advantage in the custody dispute.”

Otunga is a two-time WWE Tag Team Champion on top of being a lawyer with a degree from Harvard Law School. As far as being their child’s “primary caregiver”, he has largely been off television since retiring from in-ring competition in 2015, now only making rare appearances as a pre-show analysts before WWE pay-per-views.

    Speaking not so much as a Wrestling fan but as a kid who’s parents divorced and for their son this is a similar situation. Otunga is doing all the right things and taking all the right steps. He has his degree to fall back on in this situation and I know he will have a solid concrete case going in to get what he is asking for as far as custody. And he’s right he is the primary while JHud is all over the world. He’s not being unreasonable.

    He won temporary custody of the kid, this was justice served for now. Hope he gets permanent custody, he truly seems like a good guy.

    So David is acting like a responsible parent while Jennifer is neglecting her family yet this article’s headline insinuates that Davis somehow a bad guy because Jennifer had a restraining order against him? Puh-leeze – if anything the kid in the custody battle should file a restraining order against his absentee mother for neglect when he is old enough to do so!

    Never trusted Hudson – she always seemed too ambitious for my liking – and her suspicious ‘coronation’ as Clive Davis’ latest money-making machine at the very SAME party where Whitney Houston died under susupicious circumstances made me leery of her …..
