Brother, mother of Jennifer Hudson found dead

Found on Gawker and I heard about it on the CBS Evening News. Singer Jennifer Hudson’s mother Darnell and brother Jason were found shot dead in the mother’s Chicago home. This is beyond depressing. To finally make it in life, as an artist and an Oscar winner, and to lose your mother and brother. It’s incredibly tragic.

Darnell Hudson, mother to almost universally loved Oscar-winner and American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson, was murdered in Chicago today. “Investigators said two shooting victims were discovered inside a home belonging to Hudson’s mother just before 3:00 this afternoon,” local TV reports. The other victim: her brother Jason. Police are releasing no details except to say it was “domestic.”

From local TV reports:

An Amber Alert was also issued for a child who might also be related to the singer and Oscar-winning actress.

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond said the deaths appeared to be the result of domestic abuse, but she declined to elaborate.

Authorities were looking for a 1994 white Chevrolet Suburban missing from the area around the home with 7-year-old Julian King inside, Bond said. The child was also possibly a relative of Hudson, she said.

  1. This is a terrible tragedy. I can’t imagine trying to come to terms with something like this. I really hope they find the little boy soon. :(-nicole g

  2. This should make us all grateful for the things we do have. There but the grace of God go I. My thoughts are for her family. May she pull through this tragedy. Peace, light and love always.

  3. The sad part is that she was in Los Angeles making a music video for her first single.She was finally getting herself out there to be known as a solo artist. Not just an actess and reality tv alumni. And then this happens.I can’t imagine having your Mother and brother taken away from you in that capacity. Will she be able to sing again? Will she go into a deep depression? Will she find a way to blame herself for this? Will she hate her sister for allowing such a son of a bitch into her family’s life?All of this over nothing. Literally nothing. A woman doesnt want you? You get kicked out of a house? Whichever the final reason may be, it was nothing that made him hurt his family like that.

  4. Sad update to all:Her nephew was just found murdered. Please pray for Jennifer and all of her family…:(
