Jennifer Hudson Addresses Messy Split From David Otunga & Throws Shade On "The Voice"

Jennifer Hudson has remained quiet on her messy split with her former fiancé, David Otunga, after ten years together. However, the singer joked about her breakup on Monday's episode of "The Voice."

Hudson's split with former wrestler Otunga included accusations of domestic assault and a protective order, which Jennifer later dropped. 

Otunga was recently awarded temporary custody of their eight-year-old son while she is away for work. 

Hudson recently joked about her failed marriage during rehearsals for "The Voice" with contestant Davon Fleming.

Fleming was explaining why he chose Christina Aguilera's song "Hurt" for the key performance, telling Hudson it represented his view on relationships. 

Davon said, "None of my relationships ever work out."

Hudson's references to her split with her former fiancee comes on the heels of a judge imposing a gag order in the custody battle between the former couple. 


Associate Judge Karen Bowes approved the gag order, which prohibits Hudson, Otunga and their representatives from publishing, disseminating and posting videos, statements and other information about the case.


Hudson had requested the gag order after she accused Otunga or his representative of giving information to TMZ. The site claimed on Nov. 28 that Otunga was given temporary custody of David Otunga Jr. for the majority of the time as Hudson tapes episodes of "The Voice."


Hudson's legal team wrote in the legal filing, "Otunga 'was not awarded custody of the parties' minor child, he was not named the primary custodial parent, nor was he previously the primary caregiver. Yet, TMZ.com printed those allegations as true and the story has since been picked up by over 20 worldwide news sources."
