And the saga continues - because Jennifer Hudson’s ongoing custody battle just took a major turn.

The Grammy-winning singer returned to court yesterday only to find out she would be losing primary custody of her eight-year-old son, David Otunga Jr., to her estranged fiancé, reality star David Otunga. 

Hudson and Otunga reportedly reached a temporary custody agreement yesterday, which mandates that the former WWE star will maintain custody of the newly-separated couple’s son. The court awarded Otunga with primary custody – for now – because Hudson is currently on set in London filming The Voice UK and will be embarking on heavy travel to Los Angeles to film America’s The Voice.

According to TMZ, “David has said he’s been his son’s primary caregiver since birth because of Jennifer’s travel schedule.”

It’s also reported that Hudson “voluntarily” dropped her Order of Protection against Otunga. 

This story sounds far from over, so stay tuned.
