"I sent countless e-mails, I've tried to call a few times," Ne-Yo said of him trying to reach out to Jennifer Hudson and comfort her post the triple murder of her family.

R 'n' B singer-songwriter Ne-Yo told Valerie Nome of OK! magazine's Red Carpet Confidential that he did reach out to Jennifer Hudson after learning her mother, brother, and young nephew were all slain. He even admitted to have made phone calls to the former "American Idol" finalist and also sent her "countless emails."

"I sent countless e-mails, I've tried to call a few times - of course, I'm not expecting her to answer the phone, going through what she's going through," Ne-Yo confessed. "But I've sent her countless e-mails letting her know that my prayers are with her and her family, and just hold your head up. God has a plan for everything."

Ne-Yo and Jennifer Hudson sing the same genre of music and they have worked together on his second album "Because of You". She lent her voice for one of the LP's tracks, titled "Leaving Tonight."

With holidays are on already, Ne-Yo revealed further that he plans to get his son present. "I'll definitely send a gift to him, but legally I'm not even allowed to be over there," he told Valerie of life with his son. "It's a long story. Maybe later on I'll put out a press release, but as of right now, I'm not allowed to see him."

Apparently, fame doesn't promise Ne-Yo everything he wants as he revealed he couldn't get his dream dog, explaining "I want one, but I'm never in one place long enough to have one. And I don't want a little dog that you can carry around with you. That's not for me. I want a Rottweiler. I want a dog you can ride like a horse. But you can't take a Rottweiler on the plane with you. It would be bad."

of course Beyonce is jealous, Jennifer Hudson was the STAR of Dreamgirls and won the Academy award and the media was all over Jennifer. Beyonce is used to be the star, but she is not humble enough to be happy for Jennifer.

I think its sad about beyonce not reaching out to jennifer. I understand she's just jeolous. Jennifer has been so talented next to beyonce. Shame on you B. Shame, shame...

okays, people, leave Beyonce alone. You have no idea wether or not B contacted Jennifer. Just because she didn't advertise it to the media doesn't mean it didn't happen. don't be so quick to judge when you really don't know all the facts.

Thanks for explaining notabeyoncefan. That is indeed a foul thing for someone to do (or not do in this case). Wow, I even felt compelled to express my condolences in some way and I don't know them personally. What kind of cold, heartless "human being" would not so much as send an email or a form letter?

Confused You know what happened to Jennifer's family, right? And you know how everyone who knew Jennifer or didn't even know her have reached out to her, including Barack Obama, WELL Beyonce, who knew Jennifer well enough to have her phone number and email address did not even send a text message of condolence.

i agree with the comment by notabeyoncefan that was so cool what you said

Thank God Jennifer had people who cared enough to reach out to her. Perhaps Beyonce can learn a thing or two about compassion. NO ONE is immune from tragedy, and when something happens to someone you know, you don't turn your back on them. I will never listen to another Beyonce song, couldn't bear to hear the voice of such a horrible person.
