Jennifer Hudson‘s ex wants a judge to force the singer to testify under oath about their issues as part of their nasty custody battle.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, David Otunga has been trying to get Hudson to sit for a deposition in their court battle. He filed a motion to compel her deposition and believes taking the deposition and grilling the singer will help him his case.
The judge did not rule on whether Hudson will be forced to answer to Otunga’s questions but set a hearing on the matter.
Hudson and Otunga already postponed their trial and are attempting to settle the entire case. They are set to appear in court in May to tell the judge of the outcome.
The judge also ordered a future hearing on Hudson’s motion seeking for Otunga to get a job and keep a diary of his attempts at obtaining employment.
Back in 2017, Jennifer Hudson filed for an emergency order of protection accusing Otunga of pushing her while holding their son David. The court granted the temporary request but Hudson would later drop the petition altogether. Otunga has always denied the allegations.
Since she dropped her petition for an order of protection, the two have been battling it out in court with each filing motion after motion in court accusing the other of playing legal games.
At one point, “The Voice’” star even feared he would kidnap their son and David claimed she was trying to defame him with her allegations.
