Jennifer Hudson's Mother and Brother Shot To Death!

| Filed under: Jennifer Hudson


This is so horrible. Beyond words.

The mother of Oscar winning actress Jennifer Hudson has been killed.

Investigators said two shooting victims were discovered inside a home belonging to Hudson's mother just before 3:00 PM on Friday.

The home is located at 7019 South Yale in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood.

One of the victims was 57-year-old Darnell Hudson.

The other victim was identified as Jennifer's brother, Jason. A cousin who lived nearby discovered the bodies.

Darnell was shot in the head and Jason was shot in the chest, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office.

The shooting is believed to be domestic, police said.

Hudson is said to be flying to Chicago from Tampa.

Our thoughts to Jennifer during this incredibly difficult time.

Update: A search is under way for a young boy who is missing from the home. A child, possibly Jennifer Hudson's 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, is missing, according to sources. Police are searching for an SUV that was seen in the area, a 1994 white Suburban, Illinois license plate number X584859.

  30. julu says – reply to this


    you really have to color on the nipples of a woman who just lost family members? really perez?

  31. 31

    Oh My! I hope Jennifer didn't shot 'em.

  32. 32

    My heart goes out to her and i have never really liked her personality but no-one should ever have to lose basically their entire family in 1 day!!!

  33. 33

    Oh no… :-(

  34. 34

    Darling, please remove the picture, it's entirely inappropriate… at least the smiley face you've drawn on her boobs…
    Seriously, it's just wrong.

  35. 35

    You are one sick motherfucker.
    Nips and a smile?
    FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  36. 36

    perez maybe put up a picture where you haven't drawn a smiley face on her chest???

  37. 37

    this is so sad for her and the rest of her family :(


  38. 38

    This is so horrible and I find it deplorable that Perez has a picture of Jennifer with smiley eyes over the nipples to go along with this sad story!

    Shame on you Perez…you are famous for stooping pretty low but this is just another example of you going way overboard.

  39. 39

    That's awful. This wicked world stinks.

  40. 40

    Oh NO…poor Jennifer. PEREZ, you shouldn't have scribbled that happy face on her body.

  41. 41

    That is awful :(

  42. 42

    What a friggin' hypocrite dumb c-sucker you TRULY are! You post that her mom & brother are dead & you purposely put a non-flattering picture up-along with a SMILEY FACE???!!!

  43. Romy says – reply to this


    Why did you have to use a picture of her that you drew all over? You're such an inconsiderate asshole.

  44. 44

    I live in Chicago. Every week im always hearing on the News about killings in Englewood. Seems like a very bad community! I wonder why Jennifer would keep her family living in Englewood. This is very sad news! My prayers go out to her and her family.

  45. 45

    I literally gasped when I read that.
    How horrible… I feel so much sympathy for Jennifer and the rest of her family.

  46. 46

    Oh my god, that's so heartbreaking. I feel terrible for her.

  47. 47

    Oh my god. This is shocking and the saddest news I've heard in a long time :( I don't know how anyone could even deal with this. :( I wish I could help

  48. 48


  49. 49

    why was this originally filed under "50 cent"? did he have something to do with it?

  50. 50

    That is so sad my heart goes out to the Hudson family.

  51. 51

    I feel so sorry for Jennifer!
    This is shocking.

  52. 52

  53. 53


  54. 54

    oh my gosh! that is terrible

  55. 55

    Guys, give Perez a break. He probably wanted to put this info up asap and that was the first pic he could find. He will change it. About this news though, wow, that is truly sad. My prayers go out to her and her family.

  56. 56

    oh my god that's horrendous.
    and i'm sure perez didn't mean to offend, it was probably the first photo of her he had to use. although i'm sure it wouldn't have been hard to find another, more respectable one…
    i bet he didn't even realise.

  57. 57

    OMG?! i don't understand.

  58. 58

    Why is there a smiley face on her???!!!! Are you kidding me???

  59. 59

    wow how sad :( i will keep her and her family/friends in my thoughts.

  60. 60

    How horrifying! My thoughts are with her…

  61. 61

    why would you post the address of the home..?

  62. 62

    this is absolutely awful. all my condolances.

  63. 63


  64. A Mom says – reply to this


    You are reprehensible. You comment on the most traumatic event a person can live through and utilize a photo with eyeballs drawn in her breasts. YOU MAKE ME ILL. There is no excuse for crass juvenile behavior. SHAME ON YOU, and prayers for Jennifer and her family as the face this horrible tragedy.

  65. 65

    Re: Romy – I AGREE 1000 PERCENT!

  66. 66

    Come on guys, maybe this is a old picture of Kate Hudson?
    And maybe thats why Perez used it.
    Ofcourse this is inappropriate we al know that..

    for the second time

    All my prayers and toughts to Kate Hudson

  67. 67

    OMG, I cannot beleive the ammount of disrespect you have for people, Perez. You were not raised right. Drawing on her is so tasteless right now. God Bless you Jennifer and your family, we will be praying for you. Perez, you are a dick!

  68. 68

    So you go and draw a smiley on her tits, sick fuck Perez!

  69. 69

    okay, i know you probably drew on her before this happened. but still? really perez? you didn't have to post this picture for this article. its really disrespectful.

  70. 70

    After I reading further it must be that this was an old photo….thank goodness I was in shock there for a second…

  71. 71

    i dont think he drew on her when he posted this.

    its probably just a picture from his archives that he used.

    let off

  72. 72

    thsi is horrifying!!
    i my heart goes out to jennifer!

  73. 73

    oh god, that's terrible

  74. 74

    do you think you can maybe be a little respectful and put a picture up that you haven't drawn on? and a smiley face, no less. come on! seriously, try and show a little respect to people in times like these. you are becoming more and more disgusting with each passing day. if you're not attractive on the inside, no matter how much weight you loose, you'll never be attractive on the outside.

  75. 75

    Re: airwicky – Does he bother to give anyone a break, I think this 1 blog shows he does not!

  76. 76

    Oh my god - Jennifer - my thoughts and prayers are with you. Godspeed.

  77. 77

    What a terrible, terrible thing!! My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family.

  78. 78

  81. 81

    OMG how horrible my prayers go to Jennifer and her family, such a shame.Wow to Perez, to have a picture of Jennifer that is drawn on. I understand you like to make fun of celebrity's, but it is not the time to have a disrespectful picture of someone who just experienced a traumatic loss.

  82. 82


  83. 83

  85. 85

    That is horrible! I'll be keeping her in my thoughts!

  86. 86

    Thats awful for her,they don't call this hell on earth for nothing…it is.

  87. 87

    You fucking drew a smiley face on her after this? You are fucked up beyond words Perez.

  88. 88

    Oh my goodness, this is a shocking tragedy! This is so sad, I'm so sorry for her.

  89. 89

    What an unfortunate turn of events for Jennifer, best wishes and prayers go out to you.

    Re: bobbytomorow
    what the hell?

  91. 91

    Re: julu
    yeah really perez

  92. 92

    Uhhh..TMZ reported this a long time ago. See what happens when you spend all your free time whoring for Obamama? Yeah, you get scooped. Yes you do. Yes you do.

  93. 93

    Thoughts and prayers

  94. 94

    Wow, how disturbing! I can only imagine how Jennifer is feeling right now. My heart goes out to her. :(

  95. 95



  96. 96

    Poor JHud! That's brutal!
    ..brothers shootin mothers..
    Man, what's going on in the world?
    My condolences

  97. 97

    For those that are concerned about perez showing the address. It is public record when a crime and is reported in the main stream press. Did anyone see that movie "the secret life of bees", Jennifer's performance was horrible. She was so stiff and unnatural.

  98. 98

    omg. this is so tragic. my prayers are with ther family.


  99. 99

    There is now an AMBER alert out for another family member. He is a small boy about 3 or 4 years old.


  100. 100

    ARGH!!!Sorry about caps (accident)
