Jennifer Hudson Mentions Relationship Trouble on 'The Voice'

Jennifer Hudson is opening up about relationship troubles in her life amid her breakup from longtime fiance David Otunga.

The 36-year-old entertainer is a coach this season on The Voice and her contestant Davon Fleming chose to sing Christina Aguilera‘s “Hurt” for the Top 10 week.

Jennifer asked Davon how he connects to the pain in the lyrics.

“Relationships, none of my relationships ever work out,” Davon said.

“Child, mine neither!” Jennifer quipped back with a big laugh.

After Jennifer and David split last month, she took out a protective order against him, but she dropped it last week and a temporary custody agreement was reached.

Jennifer Hudson Allows David Otunga to See Son on Thanksgiving

Jennifer Hudson has modified her emergency order of protection against her former fiance David Otunga to allow him to spend Thanksgiving with their son David Jr.

The 36-year-old singer voluntarily granted the 37-year-old actor permission to see their 8-year-old during the holiday, from 3 p.m. Thursday through 7 p.m. Friday, E! News reports.

Additionally, David has submitted a petition asking for Jennifer‘s protective order to be thrown out. (See how David‘s rep responded here.)

The order of protection currently gives Jennifer ownership of their home and demands that David keep away from her and their son unless she gives written approval.

Jennifer and David announced that they were ending their 10-year-relationship earlier this month.

David Otunga's Rep Responds to Jennifer Hudson's Protective Order Against Him

Jennifer Hudson‘s ex-fiance David Otunga has responded to the protective order she was granted against him.

Otunga‘s lawyer says that he and Hudson have been in a custody battle over their eight-year-old son David Jr. and that Jennifer took out the protective order after she believed her ex would be granted primary custody.

“David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now,” his lawyer told TMZ. “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.”

“As a result of Mr. Otunga’s career in the WWE, Ms. Hudson felt that she could give an award winning performance in court to portray herself as the victim. Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son,” the statement added.
