Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga Reach Custody Agreement
An agreement has finally been reached in the nasty custody battle between singer/actress Jennifer Hudson and ex-fiance, David Otunga. After a nearly two-years-long battle over their nine-year-old son, David Jr., the former couple have reached a middle ground regarding decision-making for their child.
According to reports, court negotiations took over seven hours, reaching the following arrangements:
– Both David Otunga and Jennifer Hudson will have joint-custody of David, Jr.,
– Both parents must be involved in making “important decisions” regarding their nine-year-old
– Jennifer will pay David an undisclosed amount in child support
– David Jr. will be raised in the Christian faith
– Both parents must agree on a public school in Illinois, and cannot release him from school without warning
– Both parents must help the child with homework
But, perhaps, the most interesting rule within their agreement were dating guidelines. According to documents, the agreement spells this rule out:
“Significant others can not be introduced to their son until they are in a serious and committed relationship, and they will not have overnight guests of a romantic, intimate or dating nature stay overnight during his or her parenting time.”
In November of 2017, Jennifer Hudson filed an emergency protection order against her then-fiance, claiming he pushed her while she held their son. She, later, dropped the request and David was cleared of police investigation. This sparked their custody battle for David Jr.
David Otunga and Jennifer Hudson were engaged to be married from 2008 to 2017 before splitting.
