Jennifer Hudson is reportedly asking a judge to order her estranged ex-fiance to find work.
The American Idol alumni, 36, announced her separation from wrestler David Otunga, 37, in November last year (17), and the couple have been involved in a bitter custody battle over their eight-year-old son David Daniel Otunga Jr.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Jennifer plans to file a motion asking a judge to compel David to “seek employment” and “maintain a job diary”.
The gossip site reports she will present her motions to the judge later this month (Jan18), but will not file them publicly and is seeking an order sealing the entire custody and support case.
After their split, the Dreamgirls star filed court papers requesting a restraining order, accusing David of displaying “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior” – allegations he vehemently denied.
Police officers dropped a domestic violence investigation into David earlier this month (Jan18).
The warring couple have exchanged legal barbs, with Jennifer also filing to have her ex-fiance’s motion asking the judge to sanction her for contempt of court to be tossed out.
David has accused Jennifer of hypocrisy for demanding he be barred from speaking to the media about their custody battle, while still releasing her own statements on the matter.
