Jennifer Hudson tends to keep her personal life private, seldom speaking out about any relationships or personal matters in public. EGOT winner Helen Mirren has often been linked to rapper Common, as they co-starred in the film Respect. Radar Online reported that eyewitnesses described them as being very cozy and flirty at their dinner date in Philadelphia. 1. Marlon Wayans Jennifer Hudson may be outspoken when it comes to her career, yet is more reserved when it comes to sharing details of her personal life. Although often photographed with her son and co-stars, the EGOT winner rarely posts much about romantic endeavors - until recently when Breathe costar Common and she were seen together and are reported as very happy together. Marlon Wayans, one of the Wayans brothers, is an established professional actor best known for his roles on In Living Color, Scary Movie and other movies. Together with brother Shawn he co-wrote Scary Movie - an anarchic satire of horror films - and both wrote its screenplay before both co-starring as actors themselves in it. Following its immense success the pair went on to work on numerous projects together including The Ladykillers, Little Man Norbit and White Chicks. Wayans has also proven his talent as a comedian by appearing on shows like Chelsea Lately and The Howard Stern Show. Additionally, he hosted the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards alongside his brother. To pass the time away he produces Nickelodeon cartoon series Thugaboo in his free time. Wayans has been linked with several women over time. He's been romantically involved with several celebrities like Tiffany Haddish and Serena Williams for an approximate one-year relationship before parting ways in 2021. The EGOT winner has also been linked with former WWE star, David Otunga. While they broke up in 2017, they remain co-parenting their son together and often spend time spending time with him on social media. Both were recently seen attending an event together wearing matching attire. 2. James Peyton Jennifer Hudson has been in the public eye for more than a decade, yet despite achieving incredible success as an actor, singer and Broadway star she has not found long-term romantic partners. Although American Idol alum James Peyton was her hometown sweetheart for several years in the early 2000s until 2007, Jennifer has only gone on a few dates since. Peyton and Lauren's relationship came to an end after Peyton was forced out of his family home due to allegations of domestic violence, where he began being bullied at school due to his size, resulting in disruptive classroom behaviors that his parents attempted to help him deal with, yet were unsuccessful in doing so; ultimately he became emotionally scarred from this experience. American Idol alumni moved on quickly after David Otunga. Engaged for nearly a decade and sharing a son together, their relationship eventually came to an end; though co-parenting their child remains ongoing despite no longer sharing intimate photos together on social media. Jennifer Hudson is known for her skills as an actress, singer and television host; but she is also an adoring mother to son David Otunga (her former fiance). Though their marriage ended, they remain close and spend time together raising their son. Recent reports suggested that Jennifer Hudson might be dating Common, a fellow actor and musician. These speculations were further supported by photos showing them leaving a restaurant together where their arms appeared to be wrapped tightly around each other, as well as Common's birthday message to "Respect" singer on Instagram with an apparent caption confirming their romance. Common, who's just one award shy of becoming an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony), began his career as a rapper before transitioning into acting roles. Both stars will feature together in Stefon Bristol's action thriller Breathe set for release later this fall. 3. David Otunga Jennifer Hudson may be open about her career, but her personal life remains relatively private. The EGOT winner uses Instagram to showcase behind-the-scenes clips from music videos and film work but does not display photos of a significant other; although she has been seen out and about with Breathe co-star Common, but remains coy when it comes to romance rumors. Hudson has had several relationships throughout her life. First she dated maintenance engineer James Peyton between 1999 and 2007. Later in 2008, Hudson met professional wrestler David Otunga who she then had a child with in 2009. Following their separation in 2011 they both filed for a protective order against each other after allegations that Otunga physically abused Hudson. As soon as he finished wrestling in 2015, Otunga returned to WWE as a commentator, appearing on RAW, SmackDown, Main Event and SummerSlam. Following the 2017 Superstar Shakeup he was traded over to Raw and appointed pre-show panelist alongside Booker T and Byron Saxton - in addition to appearing as an actor such as on Next Gen and Marlon Wayans Acrimony (both films), as well as Survivor Series. Otunga -- who graduated from Harvard Law School -- is well known for his legal commentary that draws upon his experiences as a biracial man to bring the material alive. His entertaining style has made him an invaluable member of WWE audiences. Otunga demonstrated his smarts rather than muscle in court when he assisted a fellow WWE star to obtain unemployment benefits. According to TMZ, Otunga used his Harvard Law School education effectively when questioning witnesses and cross-examining opponents during court hearings. Reps for Otunga and Common did not respond immediately to Page Six's request for comment, yet their social media posts appear to support reports that the couple are romantically involved. Common posted a birthday tribute for Hudson on March 15 that features them cuddling close in bed together with large smiles and kisses between them. 4. Common Jennifer Hudson is an award-winning singer, Broadway legend and accomplished actress who rarely discusses her personal life. However, she has had two notable relationships: first with James Peyton from 1999-2007 before going on to date professional wrestler David Otunga until 2017. Although they split in 2017, they had one child together. Common is currently dating EGOT winner Ellen Page and recently caused romance rumors to swirl when they were seen together in Los Angeles. Furthermore, they will play husband and wife characters in an upcoming action movie entitled Breathe that take place underground due to low oxygen levels on Earth. Before his reported relationship with actresses, Common was in a long-term relationship with Tiffany Haddish. Additionally, Common has also been linked with Serena Williams, Angela Rye and Erykah Badu. Common - born Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr. - boasts an illustrious music career which stands one award short of complete EGOT status. In 2018, he released his twelfth album, Let Love Lead the Way, alongside Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper. Additionally, he has made guest appearances on songs by artists like Brandy Norwood and Samora Pinderhughes. At an interview with Al Roker of TODAY early 2023, multi-platinum Grammy winner Amy Winehouse was asked by Al Roker if she were dating actor George Clooney. In response, she smiled widely while neither confirming or denying they are an item. The couple have been seen together numerous times, from casual outings to dinner dates at Nobu Malibu. Rumors began swirling after they were seen leaving Nobu with what appeared to be a large group in February 2023; and will also appear together in Breathe which will hit theaters this July.
