Good for her. A lot of men have trouble dealing when their women gets to be very successful and they're still struggling and don't have an income anywhere near their womans money. I'm sure that had o be a big issue in their relationship.

I hope she knows what she's doing. She left a brother who had her back thoughout everything for a fly-by-night NFLer who probably has 15 other broads on the East Coast and 15 on the West Coast and probably packin' an STD on top of it. Some folk don't know when they are well off.

Maybe money had nothing to do with it. She's traveling and moving around and time may not be condusive to the relationship. Some people can't handle the fame of it all and that may have played a hand or maybe instead of speculating...MTO needs to shut the phuck up??? Try that for a change!

Oh My! that is so salty how money can change a person. I respected Jenn for keepin it real by still being with her childhood sweetheart....that's the big test when you gain success....are you going to stay true, or get the BIGHEAD?.. ...but theirs always 2 sides to a story. Who knows maybe he cheated on her.


SAPHIRE

I believe he had become a very jealous person and couldn't handle all of the attention J.Hud was getting and she had to leave flatface azz alone because of all his insecurities.Sometimes shyt happens for all of the right reasons.

You trifling tramps are all so full of SHHHIT! When men blow up and trade in their women for a new model we are wrong but fat azz does it and you say you go girl. DOn't agree? You hated on Jordan for doing it and would disown Denzel if he dropped his tree monkey looking wife. I hope Jennifer Hippo fall's flat on her azz! Oh and Dream girls was corny and she did not deserve an oscar.

Wow, sounds like some of you might be on the Ittie-Bittie-Tittie Committie. Well, IF they did break up, who is to say what the reason was. However, when the woman is making more money than her man that's always a DL issue in normal households. Now imagine if your woman is making millions and you're still just a Janitor?! That's not a good look!

How can you say you loathe people who try to be Black but call a wonderful Black woman like Denzel wife a name that is used to demean Black people as humans, that is just contradictive of you.

Maybe he could'nt take the fame. Maybe she changed. all I know is that she said she was'nt leaving her love. So even if they did break up, she is getting over her lon-time love real fast!! She is cheesing @ dinner with another man! Wow Jen, we were hoping you would keep it 100!!

I saw this coming from a mile away. Which Oscar-award winning, millionaire singer-actress is going to marry a janitor? Women almost always want to marry "up". Thats just the way it is. Then again, Kerry Rhodes has groupies after him in every city he goes to. Do we think he's going to settle down and wife-up Jennifer Hudson? Call me a skeptic, but I doubt it.

Hey MURDADEM, I don't like that ole hatin' comment about Kerry being gay u posted. How would you know? Do me a favor and keep ya mouth off my boy !! Are you upset cause you're not the one getting all the props? Comments such as yours would be a number one seback within our race of people, we love to knock/put one down when their succeeding instead of backing them when they are all POSITIVE and trying to do what's right. Personally I do think YOU'RE one of the BIGGEST jerks out there. So what if they are dating or not? Rumors are speaded daily on who's doing this or that in the celebrity world. No matter what type of friendship they have, God is the one that's in control of the outcome. Stop being a hater player. Peace !!!

One person I can think of who is famous and married to a "nobody" is Dolly Parton. He is blue collar and they've been married about 40 years. Of course they don't seem to live together that anybody can tell. But I agree with you, most men can't handle it when the woman makes more etc

uh UH UH UH!!!!! Im steadily loosing respect for J. Hud cus it seems to me that she is forgetting where she came from. She's slowly changing into this "Imma Oscar winner so fukk you attitude" diva. And I think everybody around her, including her ex, is getting a taste of it. And she aint foolin' me wit all them fake humble acceptance speeches. She's so fake. And I'm telling the truth cus' i can smell a fake person a mile away, and the energies she exudes are not genuine. Get it togetha J. Hud. You got much talent for you not to keep it real.

..to all yall saying good for her -- NO! who cares if her new dude is cuter. You're basically saying looks is what matters 100% thats not always fact. Her ex was there for her before Divaifer become who s he was. So many people change when they get fame and money. It's sad and this is how you know who is real or not. On the other hand I personally don't know her situation so I can't fully knock her hustle. But if she did change because of fame that's bad. STay humble with a edge never be full of it 100%. Now if you folks were with someone and they become big.. wouldn't you feel mad if they ditched you after you stood by them.. LOL @ saying she upgraded.. yes and she prob hurt him in the mist.

I don't even know who Kerry Rhodes is (not a big NFL fan), but he's a hella good look for Jen if it's true- HOTNESS! Amen@callicrew I'm mad that so many of y'all assume that Jen broke up with her ex because of her newfound money and fame - that she "traded up" to a man on the same financial level because suddenly her man of many years wasn't good enough for her. Let's consider this as a possibility.... Jennifer blew up, won the Oscar, made a ton of money, was all over the news, magazines, talk shows - but remained humble and didn't let it get in the way of her love James. But then, maybe he got to feeling like less of a man because he can't give her the things she can now provide for herself. Maybe he ended it.

See that's why you gotta' respect K-Fed and Tom Arnold. Those 2 white boys recognized the opportunity and went for it. Now look at them, both these nobody's have gone on to have better careers than the celebrity women the were once married to. J Hud's man should have done something. Start a record label, write a script, a restaurant hell open a laundrymat-SOMETHING! At first I was like she's trifling but she may have outgrown him because he never evolved. Now I kind of think he's an idiot because if my woman suddenly hit it big you can best believe I'm going to put down the squeegee and come up with an idea to make more dough.

Jennifer u do u!!!!!!!!!! Dude is a janitor and I am not knocking that, he must do him. This girl is on her way up and she needs to be with a man that aspires to reach goals also. People grow apart when you are not on the same level--same playing field--she is aspiring to higher levels and she is pursuing her dreams. He on the other hand may not want to excel beyond where he is--how many of her events have you seen him attend? Hell, I had to bail on a relationship because he was and is a cheater and I bring home in 2 weeks more than he does in a month and I was helping him and taking care of my kids, so the hell with it.
