Jennifer and her Kenyan fiancé David Otunga a retired professional wrestler are no longer a couple.

The two are said to have been in the process of ending their relationship and on Thursday Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her WWE ex-fiancé.

“They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months. Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer's actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son. Please respect her privacy at this time.”  Jennifer's rep told E! News confirming the split.

The protective order has become a bone of contention in their split as it gives Jennifer an ‘unfair advantage in the custody dispute’ and insinuates that David was violent.

“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.” David's lawyer Tracy Rizzo told E News.

She then went on to add that Ms Hudson had given an ‘award-winning performance’ where she portrays herself as the victim in the mix. “As a result of Mr Otunga's career in the WWE, Ms Hudson felt that she could give an award-winning performance in court to portray herself as the victim. Mr Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms Hudson or their son, and it is unfortunate, especially in today's climate, that she would feel the need to make these false allegations against him. Mr Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties' only child.”
