Is Jennifer Hudson’s marriage on the rocks because of her now-famous weight loss? The report does come from The National Enquirer, so feel free to take it as a gigantic boulder of salt but, hey, they did break the John Edwards scandal wide open.
Sources tell the Enquirer that husband David Otunga, who has traveled the rare road of a lawyer turned WWE wrestler, wants the more curvaceous J-Hud of five years ago back.
“Jennifer’s weight has been an issue between them ever since she lost her first big chunk of weight in 2010,” the insider revealed. “When they met, she was a happy, proud, healthy woman who loved food and embraced every aspect of life with so much enthusiasm.”
According to the source, watching what she eats has become a near obsession, as has her primping routine. “Now she takes up to four hours to get ready when they go out, and she gets stressed out every time she puts a morsel of food in her mouth.”
Jennifer basically admitted as much on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, telling Jay, “He’s not really into change that much, so he fusses at me like, ‘Why do you have to get all dressed up to go out,’ and ‘Why can you just go out like you used to?’”
While we can definitely see where he’s coming from, Jennifer is actually paid for her weight loss, so we can hope he at least appreciates the income! The American Idol contestant-turned-Oscar and Grammy winner signed a multi-million dollar deal with Weight Watchers in 2010. By 2011, Jennifer had lost an astounding 80 pounds and she went from a size 16 to a size 6.
Sources say the incredible shrinking Idol alum might be causing a rift in her marriage, and that David even thinks she’s becoming more recognized for her weight loss than her many talents.
“Every meal is a pain in the butt,” the source divulged, “and he’s starting to feel totally sidelined by her obsession with her weight.”
We can definitely see both sides of this alleged argument. What do you think?
