Jennifer Hudson Alleges David Otunga Has Attempted To Intimidate Her With A Movie Prop Gun
Not only was I surprised to learn that Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga were ending their relationship after nearly a decade, the story became particularly disturbing when we learned that Hudson had filed a protective order against Otunga, the father of her eight-year-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr.
And while Otunga’s lawyers countered the claims saying the protective order was just a means to win custody of their son, TMZ, obtained access to the protective order and in it, Hudson lists specific incidents that led her to believe her life was threatened.
In the order of protection, Hudson says that David has exhibited “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me.”
She says, she now lives in fear of what action David might take.
Hudson said that on Wednesday, that during a recent recording session in Chicago, with their son David Jr. in tow, Otunga Sr. made several phone calls to reach her. When he couldn’t read her, he asked their son to record the scene.
Hudson believes David Sr. was hoping the recording would prove that Hudson is dating one of her producers- a claim she denies.
She claims that that evening when she went home David was visibly angry, grabbed their son by the hand and pushed Hudson out of the master suite. She claims that their son and a makeup artist witnessed the scene.
Hudson believes this recent behavior represents a pattern.
In legal documents, Hudson says David left a gun and holster on their kitchen counter. Otunga didn’t deny this claim and said that it was a movie prop. Hudson said, “David knows that I am and have been very sensitive to firearms after my mother and my brother were murdered by a firearm.”
She said, “I believe that he left it out to taunt, intimidate and frighten me, which he absolutely accomplished.”
After the order of protection was granted, Otunga was removed from the family home.
The drama between the two began not because their relationship is ending because both parties want sole custody of David Jr.
Hudson has asked the judge to give her “significant decision-making responsibilities” as she’s been solely responsible for making all major decisions for David Jr. David Sr. alleges that it’s been the exact opposite.
