American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson has developed a nasty addiction to shopping.
A source told the National Enquirer:
"She not only buys clothes, she picks up items for their home, and always something for the baby. Jennifer will see a commercial for something on TV and scream ‘I have to have it!’ Then she’ll go on the Internet to find it."
It may sound harmless, but apparently J-Hud's habits are so bad it's causing a strain between her and fiance David Otunga.
A friend of the couple adds:
"David seriously thinks Jennifer needs to get help. He thought her power shopping was just a phase, but now it’s cause problems between them. After Jennifer lost the baby weight, he knew she’d have to buy new clothes, but now he feels she’s become obsessed with material things."
Thankfully it sounds like the two are working things out.
David recently sat Jennifer down to talk about her problem after watching an episode of Hoarders. She agreed to try and restrain herself before whipping out the credit card.
