Jennifer Hudson - Jennifer Hudson Dumped Property Deal When News Leaked To Tabloids

Actress/singer Jennifer Hudson and her wrestler fiance David Otunga ditched plans to purchase a mansion in her native Chicago, Illinois after real estate agents leaked news of the sale to the press.
The couple was planning to buy a six-bedroom house in Burr Bridge for almost $3 million (£1.88 million), but when the property news was picked up by gossip columnists, who also published photos of the home, the singer and her man called the deal off.
Otunga opened up about the incident during an appearance on U.S. TV's The Wendy Williams Show on Monday (19Mar12), admitting that he and his wife-to-be were shocked by the unwanted publicity.
He said, "They (real estate representatives) let that information out and so we walked away from that (deal). That was exactly the reason, so we've now found another home, and we're in the stages of finalising that."
Hudson and Otunga made sure realtors would be discreet about the location of their new Chicago property by warning estate agents that they were ready to turn their backs on the deal if the news ended up in the tabloids again.
