AceShowbiz - Jennifer Hudson has modified her emergency order of protection against ex-fiance David Otunga. According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the Oscar winner has voluntarily agreed to allow the former pro wrestler to spend Thanksgiving with their 8-year-old son, David Jr.
It comes after "The Voice" coach filed an emergency order of protection, which gives her exclusive ownership of their home and orders David to keep away from her and their son. With that being said, David is not given any parenting time until their next court date. If he wants to spend some time with his son, it would require Jennifer's written approval, which she gave this time for the holiday.
According to the "American Idol" alum's Disposition Order, David is allowed to be with David Junior from Thursday, November 23 at 3 P.M. to Friday at 7 P.M.
David previously submitted a petition for Jennifer's protective order to be thrown out so that he could spend the holiday with his son, but the request was denied. David's hearing to have Jennifer's order of protection dropped is set to be held on Monday, November 27 at 9.30 A.M. Meanwhile, the next hearing, scheduled for December 7, will address custody.
Jennifer and David ended their 10-year relationship in April as a source said that "they have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months." In court papers, the singer accused her ex of "increasingly aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior." In addition, Jennifer claimed that David physically abused their son, accused her of cheating with one of her producers as well as taunted her with a prop firearm which she found on the kitchen counter on September 27.
"I am now living in fear for my physical and emotional safety and that of my son," the "Dreamgirls" actress claimed. She demanded that her ex find temporary or permanent residence elsewhere in the meantime, as she is the sole owner of the house they shared.
David denied the allegations. His attorney stated, "David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now," adding, "As a result of Mr. Otunga's career in the WWE, Ms. Hudson felt that she could give an award winning performance in court to portray herself as the victim. Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son."
