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.
