Shortly after the break-up was announced, it was reported that Hudson obtained a protective order against her ex-fiancé, alleging that he had “increasingly aggressive, threatening, and harassing behavior” towards her and their son, David Daniel Otunga Jr, according to E! News.

After the accusations were made public, Otunga’s lawyer released a statement to TMZ, stating that his client “denies each and every allegation” that Hudson made.

“At no time did Mr. Otunga ‘physically push’ Ms. Hudson as she has alleged,” his lawyer said.

The police quickly opened an investigation into the allegations but he was cleared a few months later.

At this time, an exact reason for their split has not been revealed.
