Fans of Jennifer Hudson are concerned after learning that she has ended her 10-year relationship with David Otunga, the father of her eight-year-old son David Otunga, Jr., and been granted a protective order against him.
“They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” a rep told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.“Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son."
A lawyer for Otunga responded to the publication with a statement denying that he has ever abused or harassed her and stating, "Mr. Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties’ only child."
Otunga, a Harvard Law School graduate, will seek primary custody.
