Cape Town – Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga have called it quits after 10 years together.

A rep for the Spotlight hitmaker told People magazine exclusively Hudson and the former pro wrestler “have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months.”

In addition Hudson has received a protective order against Otunga “solely taken in the best interest of their son.”

The couple are parents to 8-year-old David Daniel Otunga Jr.

In a statement to TMZ, Otunga’s attorney Tracy Rizzo claims Hudson only got the protective order because she is concerned she will lose custody of their son.

The statement said: “David Otunga has been trying to negotiate the terms of an amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now. However, when it became apparent to Ms. Hudson that Mr. Otunga would be the parent granted residential care of the child, as a result of Mr. Otunga being the child's primary caregiver while Ms. Hudson pursues her career all over the world, Ms. Hudson decided to file a meritless Petition for Order of Protection in an effort to gain an unfair advantage in the custody dispute.”

Hudson and Otunga got engaged in September 2008, before welcoming their son a year later.
