David Otunga Wants Jennifer Hudson Found In Contempt
Welp. It looks like David Otunga and Jennifer Hudson will be carrying their drama into the new year.
According to The Blast, the WWE star has filed an emergency petition against the singer to find her in contempt of court for violating their gag order.
On December 11, Otunga filed an emergency petition accusing Hudson of being in contempt of court and seeking sanctions.
Otunga claims that last month, while Hudson was having police serve him with her emergency order of protection, she also issued an exclusive statement to PEOPLE regarding their split. Her statement said her actions “are solely taken in the best interest of their son.”
Otunga says this release not only damaged his reputation, but at the time it was released he was being forcibly removed from their family home in front of their son and Hudson wasn’t even home (instead she was on stage in Chicago). Otunga says Hudson’s priority on that night and thereafter was to create negative press about him and not to protect their child.
He goes on to say that Hudson and her legal team apparently thought it was more important to issue a press release than give Otunga notice about her petition before or even after it was filed.
Despite the court order stating each party is prohibited from disseminating photos or making comments about their child, Otunga claims Hudson gave an interview to an entertainment news show that showed numerous photos of their son and said his name throughout. He claims she violated the court order with the interview.
Otunga wants Hudson found in civil contempt of court and sanctioned for her actions. He is also asking that he not be held to a gag order she can’t follow.
Presently, the gag order remains in place until a hearing next month.
I sincerely hope they will be able to resolve their issues sooner than later for the sake of their awesome son.
