Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Jennifer Hudson Opens Up About Her Mother’s Death


Wow, what a difficult year it has been for Jennifer Hudson. But let me tell you…she has dealt with her unfortunate life tragedies publicly with class and extreme strength. In the June issue of Essence, Jennifer speaks for the first time about her mother, Darnell Donerson’s death. While her fiancee has been a great ear and shoulder to cry on, Jennifer’s biggest safe haven throughout has been her faith.

She tells Essence magazine, “The thing that keeps me going is knowing that God is in control. It’s like, if he placed me here then I must be prepared.”

And from what it sounds like, having a man like David Otunga in her life has been a blessing. “He is such a gentlemen. I sit in the car waiting because I can’t touch the door. I am not allowed!” Good for her! Those kind of men are hard to find!

Recalling her relationship with her mother, Jennifer adds, “I was always a mama’s baby. I’d go and sleep in her bed until I was 15 years old.”
