I will say there’s a big difference between me losing weight and getting a little more holla on the block, and Jennifer Hudson losing 80 pounds, becoming a national Weight Watchers spokesperson, writing a book, covering magazines, and being featured on talk shows. Suddenly everyone is vying for her attention and she may not have as much time for the reality star/professional wrestler. But didn’t he know Jennifer was a celebrity when he met her?
Perhaps David comes from the Ne-Yo school of thinking and thought Jennifer could only achieve a “Jill Scott level of success” at a size 16, but now that the size 8 (or is it zero?) singer is creeping more toward Beyonce fame, he can’t handle the shine.
Or who’s to say J Hud isn’t feeling herself a little more these days. It would be hard not to. Plus a source told Star magazine that the couple was “clashing over Jennifer’s career obsession, commitment issues, and reluctance to have more children.” Translation: This is my time, there’s a whole new pool of men out there for me, and I’m not messing up this body. I’m sure asking him to sign a pre-nup didn’t help matters either.
Undoubtedly blame can be placed on both parties for their pre-marital friction, but I would be willing to bet that if Jennifer had to do it all over again she wouldn’t change a thing about her weight loss journey. There’s a whole lot more to losing weight than pounds and it looks like J Hud may be experiencing one of the more sobering side effects of a body transformation like hers. The good news, though, is that she’s in a healthier place and her career is on the rise — so a new man won’t be too far behind. Hopefully he’ll be one that can handle her new, improved lifestyle.
What are your thoughts on J Hud and David Otunga’s reported split? Do you think her weight loss doomed the couple’s happily ever after? Even if they patch things up and remain together, things will never be the same.
