TMZ.com has obtained documents that show in 2002 Jennifer Hudson's sister Julia Hudson, her brother Jason Hudson and her deceased nephew's father Gregory King were all arrested for selling crack cocaine out of the same house where Jason and his mother Darnell Donerson were found shot to death last week.

Neighbors told Newsradio780 that Jason regularly sat in a chair in front of the home all day, every day.

As I told you yesterday, police believe they have located the murder weapon. A woman called in a tip to police describing a white Suburban similar to the one found on Monday with Julian King's body inside.

She said the vehicle cut through a vacant lot near Kolin Avenue and she watched as the occupants tossed a weapon out a window. The witness said she saw two men in the vehicle driving throughout the neighborhood on Saturday.

William Balfour was detained by police as a person of interest on Friday and is now in state custody. Police believe there are at least two killers and are searching for another person of interest.

    We've obtained arrest reports and other docs in connection with a sting operation in Chicago. On March 4, 2002, Chicago cops targeted Jason Hudson, Jennifer's murdered brother, and Gregory King, the father of Julian, the murdered 7-year-old boy. Both men allegedly sold crack cocaine to a registered informant. Cops then raided the very home where Jason was murdered last week. According to documents, Jason, Gregory and Julia (Jennifer's sister) were all arrested.

    Julia was never charged with a crime. Jason was charged with cocaine trafficking, but the main count was dismissed in 2004 because the judge ruled police conducted an illegal search. During that hearing, Jennifer's mom had to choose whether to go to Hollywood to watch her daughter on "American Idol" or be in court...she chose the latter.

    Gregory was convicted. Jason agreed to enroll in a drug abuse program and the less serious remaining charge was dismissed.

    Cops say Jason and Gregory were affiliated with the gang, Gangster Disciples. That's the same gang that William Balfour, the "person of interest" was in. The lawyer who repped Jason told TMZ cops often jumped to conclusions and assumed people in that neighborhood were gang members.

    They're so many angles to this case and speculations and rumors are running wild; the bottom line is that 3 lives were taken including the a little child. So even if one sold crack or liked to hula hoop they didn't deserve to be executed.

    But it seems like Julia wasn't even taking care of him. It was Darnell, her mother, that was taking care of Julian. In the statement to the police she had that the night before she handed her son over to her mother so she can sleep.

    How long has Jennifer been famous? Her family was selling drugs out of the mom's home? Were they really a tight family as beign reported? I have two brothers and when I win the Mega Millions, I will make sure they will be straight. The whole drug game would be a Not! Why were they selling drugs? Jennifer may not have gave them a piece of the pie. What mother wouldn't want to move out of that neighborhood. I live in Chicago and I don't go to Engle wood because it is so rough. I'm sure the brother wouldn't have mind saying good bye to that lifestyle.

    I find it hard to believe no one wanted to move away. Was times that hard for the family, that they resulted to selling drugs? It is just crazy and you better believe moms knew he son was slanging drugs out of her house!!! Whatever the case, the whole thing is sad!!

  • mimi08

    I'M WITH CHARLES ON THIS ONE....

    I THINK SHE KNEW THAT WILLIAM HAD THREATENED HER FAMILY. I THINK SHE MAY EVEN STILL LOVE HIM AND WON'T TELL THE POLICE EVERYTHING SHE KNOWS. HER FAT ASS THE SIZE OF A WALL KNOWS MORE THAN SHE'S TELLING.

    AND SHE SURE KNOW HOW TO PICK EM...FIRST THE BABY'S DADDY IS A FUCCIN CRIMINAL AND GANG MEMBER, AND THEN SHE GO GET WILLIAM'S THUG ASS, AND HE'S A CRIMINAL AND GANG MEMBER. IN MY OPINION, ANY WAY YOU CUT IT, IT'S HER DAMN FAULT.

  • ~Kissan~

    As far as Jason selling drugs that's not Jennifer's problem. He was a grown man. She got successful by working for it. I don't know why people think as soon as one family member comes up it's "ALL ABOARD THE GRAVY TRAIN !" . Please. I'm in the middle of 2 brothers and I do not allow them to mooch off us. What would me and my husband look like taking care of some grown able-bodied men ? Fools that's what.
    It's one thing to help but it doesn't appear that the siblings were helping themselves. Over there bringing a man to your mother's house and mad 'cause there's no privacy. Your husband is supposed to have somewhere for you to go and not to his parents either ! Then the brother chillin' on the block all day doing God knows what. The mom may not have wanted to move because maybe Jennifer was willing to do for her mother but not for GROWN sis and brother and all their baggage. Some mother's are like that, they always want to take care of their kids no matter how grown and wrong they are. :|

    It sounds to me that Jen's mother allowed her children to run wild! No way in hell would my grown son live with me! No way in hell would he sell drugs in my house, but then again his grown ass would not be living with me!! My daughter and her hubby would not be playing house in my home either!!!

    It sounds as if this family was all screwed up. Hubby having disputes and being disrespectful and Still allowed over? Hell No!! Dude has a pregnant girlfriend and Julia is wants him with her on her b-day? What! It reallysounds as if they became a product of their environment and was afraid of change!

    They kept saying Jen's mom cared about her community and wanted to stay. Your son is selling drugs out of YOUR home to YOUR community with YOUR knowledge!! You might as well have moved! You just never know what goes on behind closed doors. Jen probably was so glad to leave, the whole I love going back home to that neighborhood song she sings could be a bunch of bull. She probably doesn't even stay at her mom's home when she comes home! The whole thing just makes me sad and angry!

    The "First 48" has passed and still no suspects.

    If William is guilty with all the digging the media is doing they are creating a defense for him. I wonder why he refused to take the lie detector test if he's innocent. There are so many unanswered questions.

    Also, I don't really buy Jennifer's mother wanted to stay there. I would've moved my family simply because someone robbing them would always be in the back of my mind. Notice how TMZ slid in that instead of seeing Jen in Hollywood she went to the court hearing for the drug case.........I smell hidden racism. These folks are dead, let the police do their damn job.

    I'm still praying for them and the little old lady who got on TV talking about she tipped the police off that she saw 2 guys throw the gun out the damn window of the suburban Saturday. They don't have the killers and she's on TV talking about what she saw.

    As I've said b4 I don't think JHud was balling out of control. She probably couldn't afford to get the whole (immediate) family up out their situation (have them living off her with no job).

  • toosexy

    I think jennifer's mom didn't want to move just think about it, that house is probably paid for and mother's tend to be stubburn especially talking about moving from her home, her town where she raised her kids and grandkids, and i agree jennifer ain't stacking like that, she just really getting up own her grind, she's got a lot more to do to be rolling in stacks. Her mom don't seem like the frankie type and don't get me wrong i love frankie but frankie is excited cuz she ain't never really had anything as opposed to this woman who has had her home and been with her kids and so forth she was comfortable and hollywood probably would have been to much for this woman. i hope this is understandable what i'm trying to say, also the police and media has messed this case up and the real killer is still out their, their in such a rush to close the case cuz it's high profile that they just looking into one suspect if jason sold dope it could have been a robbery, or a neighborhood beef, i just think they just got one little thing on dude and went crazy. i don't think he's guily because he refused the test, he was smart for that one, if he is innoncent nerves could have affected the test and then he would have been railroaded. I just hope they examine all avenues. if dude is guily he deserves what ever comes his way, that mom and child did not deserve that.

  • candycane

    This shyt is getting really ugly now. In Jens article in S2S she said how her mother was a very private person and didnt want to be in the spotlight (no pun) she was happy in the background. Could it be that she didnt want people in her household business.

    That's why the internet is so wonderful, you can't shut folks like me up. I didn't mean to step on anyone's toes but if the shoe fits....I love children and if you're a good mother, I have no qualms with you. (God said be fruitful and multiply) My best friend is caring for 3 of her great nieces because her niece keeps having children (7 in all) that she can't take care of, and only her recent baby is living with her, the others are with other relatives. These are the mother's that I speak of. And let me repeat myself: you can't shut me nor the truth up. And for the lady who has 6 children and her masters, then you must not be poor right so evidently I ain't talking to you. Peace.

    On her myspace page she still has that dudes picture up. I'm with Charles on this one, I think she may know something. Not trying to be judgemental but if she has enough time to change other pictures and type a message then she has time to remove those pictures. If one of my loved ones was murdered and I had a picture of the suspect I would immediately remove it. Who wants to constantly be reminded of that.

How many stories have we heard of an artist music getting heavy rotation and they still live home (in PJ's) with they mom. Just bc they are on tv doesn't mean they are on.

    but your point was irrevelant do you understand the girl has one child so what is your point exactlY? looks like to me you just want to bring up the same sterotypes that affects black and white communities but our's are exploited all our wrongs, every community\race has their problems if you want to talk about this tradegy fine,but don't start talking bout no multiple daddies and blacks cuz clearly this girl doesn't fit the case your talking about.

  • PAHairston

    I'm not concerned about the statistics of white folks, I'm just concerned about black folks, period. We all know that our laundry is washed in the media everyday. We know we head nearly every negative list ever compiled. Let's see: diabetes, obesity, heart problems, HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy, high school dropout, unemployment, I'm sure I left out a few maladies. Do I sound negative? Look around you. 400 killed in Chicago, not to mention DC, our nation's capital, once dubbed the murder capital of the world. My words can be ignored, these statistics can't. What I'm trying to say is we can control how many children we have and again, if you can afford them and want them, more power to you, have a church full of children, as Tupac once rapped. I'm probably older than most of you on this board, perhaps this is why my passions run so deep. I have one son and he's 21. I felt he didn't need his no-good Dad when I was raising him alone, but now he's full of hate and bitterness towards his father. He's a great young man but he feels he's missing something in life, a relationship with his dad and yes, I am also to blame. Many black women feel that they don't need a man to raise children and true, it can be done but that man will ALWAYS be their father, period. I remember back in the day, especially in the south, single women who had 3,4,5, babies usually had them by one man, thus the nucleus of the family was in tack. Today, some young women will have a man's baby and hardly know his last name. Then she's bitter 'cause he don't want nothing to do with the child and the end result, the child suffers. I know I'm making you all mad but I can't help it. I'll stand on my soapbox to the day I die, til Jesus takes me home shouting: Children don't ask to be born, it's the choices that we make in life. And believe it or not, this is all relative to this conversation. I'm outta here, I feel my blood pressure rising and is it worth it? Yes, for all the little beautiful, nappy-headed children of the world! Somebody gots to say it besides Bill Cosby. Peace.

  • NC_NYer

    Well, I might be in the minority, but I agree PAHairston. There are plenty of women, men & couples (however you want to put it) having babies that JUST DON'T NEED to be having them at the time they do. You have a slip-up, a mistake, ONE, okay. I had one myself just out of college at 25 (I am a man). It was NOT the best thing for me financially, and while I knew it before, I REALLY decided that it was NOT the time for me to be doing that. I needed to be building myself and my future, and I have had NO MORE since then. And however this or any other situation turns out, Obama being president isn't going to magically change anything. Like he himself already said, people need to stand up and take care of themselves - which basically means get off your a** and stop waiting on a check. One job ain't enough? GET TWO - I did....and now my FICO is 701....
