Jennifer Hudson takes legal action against the media

Jennifer Hudson is fighting to keep her private life away from the media.

The “Voice” coach has filed a motion asking to ban the public from having access to “upcoming child-related legal proceedings” ahead of a trial that is due to take place between herself and former fiance David Otunga, in connection to their nine-year-old son David Jr. next month.

According to The Blast, Hudson filed the motion last month and the wrestler has asked for an extension to respond, insisting the 37-year-old singer will not be prejudiced by giving him more time to submit a response.

The trial is scheduled to take place in Chicago on March 11 and is expected to last for five days.

The former couple will testify and argue over who should pay support and who should get a greater share of custody of their son.

Last year, she filed for an emergency order of protection after accusing the WWE commentator of pushing her while holding David. Though it was granted by the court, the 37-year-old singer later dropped the petition altogether.
