Jennifer Hudson drops the restraining order against her estranged ex-fiance, David Otunga, as she says he poses no threat for her or their son at this point.
Jennifer Hudson’s primary goal is the welfare of her son David Jr. The 8-year-old was now allowed to see his father, actor and retired pro wrestler David Otunga. Hudson had originally filed a restraining order against Otunga, claiming she was in fear for her safety and that of her son. She subsequently renounced it after Otunga move out of the family home.
Sources mentioned by TMZ say that Hudson is satisfied with the move, enough so that she wouldn’t think Otunga represented a risk for her, or for their child.
Despite the fact that her restraining order request read “I am now living in fear for my physical and emotional safety and that of my son”, the same sources talking to the news website said the singer was not referring to physical violence, but more on the emotional trauma that their son would have experienced if he ever saw his father threaten his mother.
Moreover, Hudson and Otunga have reached a custody agreement: the boy will reside primarily with his father in Los Angeles, while Jennifer will be in London, filming The Voice UK and travel constantly to see her son.
The schedule is nothing new for David Jr., as he has spent most of his time, since birth, with his father, because of Hudson’s busy working schedule.
The custody arrangement will stand in place until an official decision will be made.
36-year-old Jennifer Hudson and 37-year-old David Otunga have been engaged for 9 years before announcing their split, through her representative, earlier this month. They met in 2008 and he proposed the same year, seven months later. In August 2009, Hudson gave birth to the couple’s only son.
