Jennifer Hudson‘s life was saved by going to see her boyfriend instead of being at home when her family member’s were brutally murdered.
The actress/singer went to see fiance David Otunga fighting in a World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) event at the last minute, which meant she wasn’t at her family’s Chicago home when her mother Darnell Donerson, 57, and brother Jason Hudson, 29, were shot dead in October 2008.
Jennifer, who also lost her seven-year-old nephew Julian King in the murder spree, revealed to Ebony magazine, “That’s one of the things that saved my life. Because I could have been home with my mom then.
“[David] wanted me to come out to Florida with him instead of going to Chicago. I flew out to see him; that’s why I’m still here.
“I’ve never said that before, and I can’t believe I just said that now. But I didn’t know.
“He was just like, ‘I’m going to this wrestling thing and it’s in Tampa. I’m going out there now, so you can come out there and see me versus going home.’”
