“Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son, and it is unfortunate, especially in today’s climate, that she would feel the need to make these false allegations against him,” Otunga’s attorney, Tracy M. Rizzo told the press.
“Mr. Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties’ only child.”
The pair began dating back in 2008, and Otunga wasted no time popping the question to the successful ‘American Idol’ alum. Hudson’s elation about her growing family was quickly mired by tragedy when her mother, brother and nephew were murdered by her brother-in-law just a month later.
In the midst of the devastation, the couple would welcome a son, David Otunga Jr, in 2009.
