Jennifer Hudson And Ex David Otunga Custody Battle Set For Trial, Unable To Reach Settlement

Jennifer Hudson and her ex, David Otunga, have been unable to reach a deal in their nasty custody battle and the court has now set a trial date for them to face off.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the trial will begin on August 5, where Hudson and Otunga will testify in court to argue their case. The order notes the trial can continue on for eight days, if needed.

The two had been attempting to settle their issues and postponed the original trial date recently. It appears things did not work out and now they are ready to go before the judge.

Otunga also recently filed a motion for sanctions against Hudson but the filing is sealed, so it’s unclear what he is accusing the singer of doing.

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, Jennifer feared he would kidnap their son and David claimed she was trying to defame him with her allegations.

Otunga has even recently fired off a subpoena to Jennifer’s sister Julie requesting she sit for a deposition in the case. The two have even been fighting over the choice of school bus stops.
