Can you believe that everyone has been waiting for Jennifer Hudson to jump the broom for so long that we’ve already married her off? Last week, during J. Hud’s Walk of Fame ceremony in Hollywood, her fiancé David Otunga showed up wearing what looked to be a wedding band, which sparked rumors that the couple had secretly tied the knot.
This week, during J. Hud’s sit-down with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, she revealed that her and David are still engaged, however he wears a ring because she purchased one for him for his birthday so that he could have an engagement ring too. She also talked about David’s recent Twitter beef with Wale, while revealing that she had to tell David to sit his butt down and get off Twitter the night it happened.
Catch the highlights:
On whether or not she’s secretly married
No, no. That’s a secret I don’t know nothing about. But the funny thing is, people are like, ‘When are you getting married?’ Then the next day, ‘You are married.’ And then, ‘How’s your husband?’ Y’all done married us off anyway so…
On why David was wearing a ring at the ceremony
David is a little different. Let me explain. He wanted to have an engagement ring, too. So, for his birthday or something, I don’t remember, I got him a ring for his birthday gift. David is the more sentimental one. Like he remembers every date, down to the time. ‘This is exactly such and such, such and such when we did…’ Valentine’s Day, you can’t even get through the house because he’s got all type of decorations, so he wanted to have his own ring. [He was like,] ‘Everyone knows you’re taken but no one knows I’m taken,’ and so that’s where his ring came from.
On if David really tweeted that Rihanna overshadowed Wale on his own song to Wale
David. I don’t know what that was but yes I think he did. David, get your a– off of Twitter, David. Go sit down, David.
On what she said to David after she learned about his Twitter beef with Wale
‘David get off of Twitter. What are you doing? I have to work with these people. Get off of Twitter.’ That’s what I said. What else can I say? Sometimes when you call people they answer. What more can I tell you.[…]I don’t know what to say but ‘David, get off of Twitter. Leave folks alone, okay?’ I don’t think he really thought they were paying attention to him. [He said] ‘But I didn’t mean that!’ It’s like, ‘David, get off Twitter. Leave it alone. Knock it off.’ Yes, he’s still on Twitter, but he thinks he’s his WWE character. He’s a superhero, you better check it. He thinks he’s the Incredible Hulk.
On getting an Oscar and her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
To me it’s kind of the same feeling. Both of them is something you don’t really think about, dream about. It doesn’t happen to you. You don’t imagine it. When they called me to tell me they were giving me a star I was like, ‘What? What kind of star? What star are you talking about? Me?’ It’s crazy.
Are you on a good block?
It’s really good. Adam Sandler. I’m right next to him. It’s on Hollywood and Vine, right in front of the W Hotel. Right in the front. It’s a big spot, too.
