Hudson Family Tragedy

I don't know how many of you out there remember Jennifer Hudson because she doesn't pop up at events a lot. Yet, you should know her because she has had an immensely successful career - in 2004 she won American Idol and her amazing vocals landed her a role in Dreamgirls alongside Beyonce. It was for this role that Jennifer also picked up an Oscar!

Unfortunately, Hudson, 27, is now popping up on blogs everywhere this morning after the events of last night (24th October) where her mother and brother were found shot dead in their home in Chicago.

Jennifer is currently on her way to Chicago and her rep, Lisa Kasteler tells People:
“We can confirm that there is an ongoing investigation concerning the deaths of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson. No further comment will be made and the family has asked that their privacy be respected at this difficult time.”

My thoughts and prayers are with Jennifer during this difficult time. I can't think of a worse way to hit the gossip blogs then this.
