Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga’s breakup is taking another difficult turn. The Oscar winner’s ex-fiancé has been granted primary custody over the former couple’s 8-year-old son, David Jr., TMZ reports.
According to the news site, the “Spotlight” singer, 36, and Otunga, 37, have reached a temporary agreement in their split. The contract gives the former wrestler custody over the exes’ son for the majority of the time as Hudson is currently residing in London while filming The Voice UK and frequently travels to Los Angeles for The Voice.
As previously reported, Hudson and Otunga got engaged in 2008 after a few months of dating and welcomed David Jr. in 2009. The pair parted ways in late November after nearly 10 years together. “They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” a rep for the American Idol alum told Us Weekly on Thursday, November 16. “Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son.”
