Jennifer Hudson Wants to Keep the Public Out of Her Custody Trial With Ex David Otunga

“The Voice” star Jennifer Hudson is asking the court to keep her upcoming custody trial with ex David Otunga sealed from the public.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Hudson filed a motion seeking to ban the public from having access to “the upcoming child-related legal proceedings.” Hudson and Otunga have a trial date set for March 11 in Chicago court.

Hudson filed the motion last month and Otunga is asking for an extension to respond to the motion. He says Hudson will not be prejudiced by giving him more time to respond to his ex’s demand to exclude the public.

The judge expects the trial to last for a total of five days, where the singer and Otunga will testify in court and argue their case for who deserves more custody and who should pay support.

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.

They will face off in court next month.
