Jennifer Hudson and Fiance David Otunga Split After 10 years

It was reported last month that Jennifer Hudson and her fiance David Otunga have split after being in a relationship for 10 years!

Since the split Hudson has filed for and been granted a protective order from the 37-year-old wrestler.

In a statement released to PEOPLE from Hudson’s team, the couple, who share a son (8-year-old David Jr.), have been in the process of breaking up for a while.

“They [Hudson and Otunga] have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months… 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.”

Although it hasn't been reported on why the two decided to split, allegedly Hudon filed an order of protection from the WWE wrestler. However, Otunga wanted to make it clear that he never physically abused her.

UPDATE 11/30/2017

Jennifer and David have legally settled on a custody arrangement for their son.

Otunga has been granted primary custody of their 8 year old son. The courts believe Hudson’s busy schedule means Otunga will be a more present parent for the time being. Allegedly, the former reality star has been his son’s primary caregiver for years due to the Oscar winner’s travel schedule. Hudson is currently in London filming for The Voice U.K.

The next hearing is scheduled to take place December 20.
