Jennifer Hudson is pulling out the big guns in her ongoing custody battle with baby daddy David Otunga. In a recent court hearing, the singer slammed Otunga for attempting to land a major payday just because he had a child with a celebrity.
Otunga is looking to win partial custody over their child and wants Hudson to fund his childcare endeavors. To that end, the WWE star has leveled several allegations at Hudson as their custody battle gets nastier by the day. This includes claims that Hudson’s career makes her an unfit parent and that he has been the primary caregiver.
During their latest court hearing, Hudson denied all of Otunga’s allegations. According to, the singer slammed her baby daddy for claiming that he spends more time with their child, citing how often he is on the road wrestling.
She also pointed out that Otunga is trying to land acting gigs himself and had a role in Madea’s Family Funeral. This pretty much invalidates his argument about Hudson’s career.
Hudson did not stop there. She also told the judge that Otunga is unfit to raise their child in a good and loving atmosphere. The actress then blasted Otunga for claiming that he does not have enough money to buy a home.
As far as Hudson is concerned, she does not believe Otunga is entitled to a house allowance, especially considering how they were never husband and wife.
Having a child with a celebrity should not be the basis to treat David like someone who has given birth to a child and who has no means of supporting the child.

#TBT to when I used to #Dream about working with @TylerPerry. I was beyond grateful to have a tiny scene in #HAHN and I dreamt of earning a bigger role in a #TylerPerry film. 3 years later #MadeaFamilyFuneral opens in theaters TONIGHT and I’m sharing the screen with Tyler himself! It’s surreal, watching myself on the big screen acting alongside one of my biggest heroes. Trying not to burst out laughing during my scenes with Madea, Joe, and Uncle Heathrow! Tyler, thank you for believing in me and for giving me an opportunity to make my dreams come true 🙏🏽 They don’t call it “The Dream Building” for nothing! #DreamManifested Now, what role shall I dream up next? 🤔
Otunga and Hudson were originally supposed to take their case to trial in late April. The pair, however, agreed to settle their dispute outside of court, which clearly is not working out. In light of the lack of progress, the two are scheduled to appear for a hearing in May.
Jennifer Hudson has not commented on her ongoing custody battle. The singer has one child, David Daniel, with Otunga, whom she welcomed back in 2009.
