Jennifer Hudson Calls Off Engagement

According to Star Magazine, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has called off her engagement to wrestler David “Punk” Otunga. Who didn’t see that one coming?

He loved her when she was thick but, due to her low self esteem, Jennifer couldn’t love herself enough to lose weight in moderation, through dieting and exercise. Instead, she chose to lose weight drastically through gastric bypass surgery (allegedly), and now she’s lost her man.

From Star Magazine:

After a three-year engagement, Jennifer Hudson has abandoned plans to walk down the aisle.

The American Idol alum, 30, and WWE star David Otunga – who have a 2-year-old son, David jr. – are on the outs, clashing over Jennifer’s career obsession, commitment issues and reluctance to have more children.

“They were going to tie the knot in August in Jennifer’s hometown of Chicago… but it’s not going to happen,” an insider reveals.

    and I don’t believe shat about him not wanting “skinny” Jennifer…I think it is plain and obvious…he was with her for what it was when they first got together…he was there for her when the fam got killed, she had a baby to soothe the pain, and the relationship ran its course…he wouldn’t sign a pre-nup because there’s nothing else for him to be interested in BESIDES her money and success…

    @ Cha – Great and you? Is she a friend of the blog (Jen)? Let’s keep it 100 here the minds of SOME men, women who look like the old Jennifer are assumed to have low self esteem therefore a man who looks like ‘Punk’ getting with her = a meal ticket. Especially since he’s a supposed Ivy League-educated professional who abandoned a career for a hobby. Simply a man who played his role. If it’s true he refused to sign a prenup…. Again, these are assumptions :lol:

    West Coast Chick says:

    so since he aint gonna sign the repup, does thvis mean he’s gonna try and “federline” her? :think:

    I don’t understand for the life of me why she would commit to marrying this man.

    NY (Flavor of Love) said it best “He is an opportunist and my 3rd eye is telling me he don’t like my kind.” :rofl:

    Gay rumors always floated around him. And I beg to argue he saw her as a fat golden ticket. He didn’t want her anymore because she got smarter and her self-esteem increased when she dropped the weight.

    He didn’t want to sign a prenuptial agreement which is always a prerequisite about your love for a person when money is concerned. Does she look like a cash cow (well maybe before). :coffee:

    I don’t blame Jennifer and am extremely happy she didn’t walk down the aisle without protecting her finances. Look at what happen for Heather Mill one leg and all)

    Creole Kimbo 225 says:

    Now that I think about it, I believe they only got engaged for the sake of appearances. She was something like a teen idol back in her American Idol Days and kids looked up to her in her (for being the big girl who did her thang and didnt care what others thought). They probably werent really “in love.”—They met, hooked up, she got pregnant, had a “oh shat now what do we do?” moment. So they pulled a Brandy and agreed to get “engaged.” Just didnt go as far as the marriage part….
    I dont think he cares about her money, just that he wants his son to be well taken of and have the best in life.

I will give it to you that a certain group of men have some of the same characteristic’s they desire to do the bear minimum for themselves (same as women; groupies, h*e’s, gold diggers, etc.).

    I’m sorry to hear this…but people come into your life for a reason and season. He was there to carry her through the BAD TIMES..now his season is over. I never thought his intentions were honorable….just hope they can be good co-parents and keep it moving.

    He is a Lawyer by trade..so if he connected and networked during his time with her he can make his own $$$ in entertainment. AND as a Lawyer he definitely should have understood her wanting him to sign a pre nup! Any lawyer would recommend it…

    well, like most people who spent their entire lives fat; once they lose the weight, they feel different and think they’re stock has risen drastically to a whole new class of people that would only point at laugh at them in life’s past. Jennifer vows to be one of those people now, and decided she wants no grown ass man who refers to himself as punk, chose wrestling over a legal career, AND refuse to sign a pre-nup.

    Sorry punk, and she’s telling you, she’s going. you’re the best man, she’s ever known, and there’s no way she can, move along. no, no, no, no way…

    I did look from you point of view and I do agree to some extent. She didn’t necessarily need to have low-self esteem just because she was thick. I mean she did snag an Oscar and she didn’t make it that far because she didn’t have confidence. In fact it took a multitude of esteem to carry the task to the end especially with the scrutiny she received from main stream media. :thumbsup: See I am versatile.

    I just happen to believe she did have some self esteem issues due to her size.

    i don’t get that feeling from punk. i mean, she ain’t all that and her damn career ain’t all that. the man is an attorney. i believe he can get a damn job making more than she makes in the long term.

    plus, i hate that these chicks run out and immediately get pregnant and then act brand new (a la halle) with the dude later. why is who you have a prenup with more important than who you have a child with?

    i think he suspect but she chose him.

    to me, If you have to sign a Man-Made self agreement, then maybe you should’nt be united in the first place, Man has destroyed all of GOD’s Word, I never understood how a peice of paper comes in the marriage, but GOD never exsist in it. but the first thing you will hear them say, well GOD is FIRST (lie) he was never even in the equation. #IJS.

    Although Punk went the reality route (so did Jennifer for that matter) and wants to be a wrestler now, I can’t overlook the Harvard JD. That isht ain’t for dummies. Maybe he wouldn’t sign an unreasonable pre-nup. He is trained as a lawyer. He summered at the same firm as Michelle Obama. He’ll always have his intellect in his back pocket.
