People often say “Everything happens for a reason,” and that just may be true for Jennifer Hudson.
The “American Idol” star recently opened up about the tragic murder of her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew for the November/December issue of Ebony.
She said that her now fiance David Ortunga, had convinced her to be in Florida that horrifying day to be with him during a WWE event.
Hudson reminisced, "That's one of the things that saved my life, because I could have been home with my mom then. He wanted me to come out to Florida with him instead of going to Chicago."
"I flew out to see him; that's why I'm still here. I've never said that before, and I can't believe I just said that now. But I didn't know. He was just like, 'I'm going to this wrestling thing, and it's in Tampa. I'm going out there now, so you can come out there and see me versus going home.' "
