Jennifer Hudson’s stunning weight loss has been a major topic for the past year, with many sharing their support over the singer’s health conscious transformation. But Hudson has experienced her fair share of criticism over her current size, thanks mainly to a few statements from “The View” co-host Joy Behar. And now, after months of silence, Hudson is now firing back at Behar on her comments and setting the record straight on her size.

The drama started in August, when Behar detailed an encounter with Hudson on “The View,” claiming that the singer was now a size 0.

“I was in a store shopping, looking for a dress and I suddenly say ‘Oh there’s somebody I know’ and it was Jennifer Hudson and she was shopping and she said ‘I know you … Then I heard the sales girl say to her ‘You’re a size zero′ and I said to Jennifer ‘How does that feel?’ and she said ‘I feel like they’re talking to someone else.’ ”

Afterwards, Hudson endured a serious backlash due to Behar’s story and in the cover feature of the December issue of Ebony, Hudson finally addresses Behar’s statement, saying she never claimed to be a size 0.

“I’m going to finally address that size-zero thing that Joy [Behar] said on The View. Hell, I wasn’t even on the show.  I never said I was a size zero,” said Hudson. “I got crucified by I don’t know how many people who cussed me out because they said I’m putting out the wrong message and telling people to be a size zero.  I got called every name under the sun and was told, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself for talking about being that size.’ Well, honey, when I do say I’m that size, then give me that speech. I never said that. People say I’m always dwelling on my size. No, I’m not!  Everyone else is always dwelling on my size.”

Well, we’re glad that Hudson got that off of her chest and shared her side of the story. And regardless of whether Hudson is a size zero or not, she still looks amazing. But like Hudson, being amazing didn’t spare these other stars fmom becoming embroiled in a celebrity feud. Here are five other major celebrity squabbles.

    Frankly, I’m glad she lost the weight especially if it was for health reasons. However, I still think she’s way too small. Her face is all baggy and filled with lines that are used to meat (no pun intended).

    In all honesty, I think it makes her look old. Kinda like Luther, Oprah, Starr, Randy, Al, etc., when they lost the weight. Everyone is not designed to be skinny and Jennifer’s tapping on scary skinny’s door with an attitude. Then has the nerve to be defenisve about her size. Ha! Don’t get mad because people are talking, its a part of the deal. And hell, you signed up for it honey!
