Jennifer Hudson is breaking her silence over the shooting deaths of three members of her family. In a new interview with “The Oprah Winfrey Show” that aired today, the Oscar-winner expresses her shock and sadness over the 2008 killings of her mother, brother, and her seven-year-old nephew in Chicago. Hudson tells Winfrey that the surviving members of her family, her faith in God, and her toddler son — David, have given her the faith to get on with life.
Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew were living together with her sister, Julia Hudson, at the time of their deaths. Since the tragic incident, Julia’s estranged husband, William Balfour, has been arrested and charged with the murders.
