Oscar-winner and former American Idol contestant, Jennifer Hudson, split with her fiancé, former pro wrestler David Otunga, after 10 years together. While breaking off the engagement, Hudson filed a protective order against Otunga to protect herself and their 8-year-old son. Otunga’s attorney insists that the allegations of abuse are false and unfounded.
Even when a couple is unmarried, issues like child custody and domestic violence contribute to the difficulties of untangling a long-term relationship. Arranging where the children will reside and the custody status places stress on them and the parents who may not agree on the best situation and place for them to live. When one partner abuses another, serious injuries may result, prompting the abuse victim to file a protective order against their abuser.
