Jennifer Hudson could be facing a long and messy custody battle. In the latest celebrity newsUsMagazine.com reports the American Idol alum and current coach on The Voice is fighting her ex-fiancé David Ortunga for primary guardianship of their son, David Jr. According to Ortunga’s attorney, he has been working to settle an “amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now,” but the estranged couple has not been able to finalize it. Hudson has previously been granted a petition for Order of Protection against her celebrity ex, citing protection for herself and for her son. The pair announced their celebrity break-up earlier this year.

This celebrity break-up seems to be getting very messy. What are some things to consider when you’re splitting with your significant other and you have a child in the picture?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes, relationships fizzle out. While a split is always complicated and full of emotions, if you and your estranged partner have a child, there are even higher chances for issues to arise. If you are breaking up with your partner and you share kids, Cupid has some things for you to consider:

1. Be ready to co-parent: You and your partner have a shared responsibility for your kids. If you are splitting up, you should figure out how you’d like to continue raising your kids. Ideally, this should be done without the help of layers and a court. Figure out a system that works best for your lives and stick to it.

2. Adopt a “kids come first” mindset: Establishing this mentality is important after a split. Regardless of the differences between you and your partner, it’s important to remember that your kids come first. This will help you in times of conflict and stress. Sometimes, you’ll both have to swallow your pride and put on a happy face for the sake of your kids’ well-being.

3. Keep it professional: Never badmouth your partner in front of your kids. No matter the situation, it’s important to voice your negative opinions in private. By projecting your feelings about your ex onto your kids, you could cause long-term emotional issues for them. Let your children form their own opinions and conclusions, and make sure you’re there for them when they need you.

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd may have broken up, but it’s clear the celebrity exes may still have drama between them. In the latest celebrity news, a source close to The Weeknd questioned Gomez’s rekindled friendship with her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber. Following a major kidney transplant earlier this summer, Bieber reached out to Gomez and the celebrity exes kept in constant contact after that. According to UsMagazine.com, The Weeknd trusted his ex-girlfriend, but “really didn’t trust” Bieber’s intentions. Gomez and Bieber have been spotted hanging out with each other since news of her split with The Weeknd became public. Maybe Gomez isn’t so sick of that same old love, after all?

In this celebrity news, it seems that ex relationships caused some turmoil in a current relationship. What are some ways to keep your past relationships from dictating your current or future ones?

Cupid’s Advice:

Break-ups are almost always rough. While it may seem challenging to heal, it’s important to maintain a strong sense of self. Cupid has some tips that you can implement into your life to help keep your past from dictating the future:

1. Respect the past: Your past relationship ended for a reason. You don’t have to forget the good times you had. Respect the relationship for all that it was, because it probably was right for you at that point in your life.

2. Be present: If you spend your time dwelling on what used to be, it’ll be super challenging to find happiness in another relationship. Yes, you should respect the past for what it was, just know you are a different person in the present. Learn from your past self and relationship, and fully embrace yourself for who you are presently.

3. Do not fear vulnerability: Maybe your last relationship ended badly, and it has taken you forever to move on. As much as that sucks, if you fear vulnerability you’re doing yourself a disservice. Starting a relationship with someone new is always going to be scary – so be open to the greatness that could come from it.

Selena Gomez’s heart wants what it wants, and apparently it’s not The Weeknd. In the latest celebrity news, the former couple has ended their 10-month relationship, according to UsMagazine.com. News of this celebrity break-up is a surprise to many, as they appeared “stronger than ever” just last month. Gomez has reportedly been back in contact with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber after undergoing a kidney transplant, but the two are just on friendly terms. Hang in there, Selena and The Weeknd!

This celebrity break-up has us wondering if Selena Gomez will be getting back together with Justin Bieber anytime soon! What are some ways to cope with a recent break-up?

Cupid’s Advice:

Break-ups are almost always difficult to overcome. While it may seem like you will never be able to get over your ex, we promise it’s possible. Here are some ways to get that ex off your mind:

1. Write it out: In this digital age, it’s easy to want to take your feelings to social media. Don’t. Put your phone away, shut down your laptop, grab a pen and piece of paper, and start writing. You’ll find it to be very therapeutic!

2. Talk it through: Find a good friend, and ask them to sit down and listen. Make it clear that you just want them to hear you out for now – they can give their personal opinions when/if you are ready for it.

2. Get out of town: Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to get out of town. It removes yourself (temporarily) from the memories, and will help clear your mind.

As we all know, celebrity relationships are prone to lots and lots of drama. If you’ve been following the Kardashians for a while, it’s no secret that oldest sis Kourtney Kardashian and her ex Scott Disick seem to always have problems surrounding their former celebrity relationship. In the latest celebrity news from EOnline.com, Kardashian reveals Disick has threatened that she “better watch her back” in next week’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode. While Kardashian has been dating model Younes Bendjima since last year, it’s clear that Disick still has complicated feelings for his ex. Hopefully they’re able to sort things out for good, and soon!

This celebrity news shows some drama that can happen post-breakup in a relationship. What are some ways to keep your ex from affecting your new relationship

Cupid’s Advice:

Kourtney and Scott certainly have a complicated past, which seems to always get in the way and prevent the two from moving on. Cupid has some relationship advice to help you focus on the present:

1. Block him on social media: Your business is his no more. He doesn’t need to see what you’ve been up to! Blocking him will prevent you from seeing his posts, and also will make it easier to forget about him. Out of sight, out of mind, right?

2. Delete those pictures: Sure, there’s nothing wrong with remembering the good times from your relationship. You can still remember those good times without pictures plastered all over your Instagram or Facebook. Stripping your social media is a freeing experience, and you can make room for tons of pics of your new guy.

3. Remain headstrong: Above all, remember that your current relationship is a completely new chapter. While you may have been burned before, don’t let the drama from the last ex ruin something good that could come from this new relationship!

After two years of engagement, celebrity couple Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs have taken a break. According to People.comthe couple hadn’t seen each other in two months. Between Twigs’ new album and Pattinson’s press tour, time and distance have been a strain and led to a celebrity break-up.. But don’t worry, as Twigs has kept the engagement ring and Pattinson admits, “That’s the girl he wants to marry.” We may see the couple reuniting soon.

This celebrity break-up is the here and now, but it may not be forever. What are some factors to consider when it comes to on-again off-again relationships?

Cupid’s Advice:

Like this celebrity couple, sometimes breaks are necessary. People change and it’s important to realize who we are before we can go back. But does that mean you should go back? Is lost love always lost? How do you decide what’s best? Read our relationship advice below:

1. Know what you want:  Monogamous, long-term relationships are not for everyone. There’s no right or wrong to what makes you happy, but you need to know what does. If you’re ok with an on-again off-again relationship, stay the course. If each break-up tears you down a little more, it’s time to reevaluate. You deserve what makes you happy, but it starts be knowing what that is.

2. Know why it ended:  Some relationships end for good reasons. While the end is painful and often leaves you wanting to go back, take a moment and reflect on what caused the end. Is it worth going back to that?

3. Who do you want to be?  What does the future version of yourself have to do with your current relationship status? Everything. Imagine who it is that you want to be. Does your partner support that? Does the relationship hold you back from that vision? The only way to become the person you envision is to start acting like you’re that person now. If someone distracts you from that vision, realize it’s not what you need and move on.

As much as we wish it weren’t true, The Bachelor doesn’t always end with a fairy tale. Sadly, such is the case for celebrity couple Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi. After being engaged for several months, the couple announced their split in August and embraced single life. In a recent celebrity interview, Viall finally opened up about being single. According to UsMagazine.com, Viall said, “It’s never fun, right? I don’t know. Being single kind of sucks. But what can you do?”

This celebrity break-up talk has us feeling bad for this Bachelor. What are some ways to embrace the single life after a split?

Cupid’s Pulse:

Break-ups are always tough and can be hard to handle. While there is no magic cure to the pain of heartbreak, here are a few ways to embrace single life:

1. Focus on you: There is no better time to spoil yourself and learn about who you are, than when you are single. When you become single, you are flooded with a large amount of free time. This can be overwhelming and disheartening if you don’t know how to fill that time. So, instead, spend this time trying new things and learning about yourself.

2. Be with your friends: Being in a relationship sometimes means that you have less time to be with your friends. When you are single though, you have endless time to be with your friends and catch up. They are the ones who will carry you through this break up and stand by your side no matter what. So, take this time to be with your squad and live it up.

3. Travel: What better way to move on from a break-up than to travel the world. Take some days off of work and live it up in a new town, new country, new scenery. Any place you go will be uplifting to your soul and will help you embrace single life even more.

Is there ever a time where there isn’t a ton of drama in Bachelor Nation? Bachelor in Paradise star Danielle Lombard recently disclosed some juicy celebrity news. In a recent interview, she says that Dean Unglert, who simultaneously dated Lombard and Kristina Shulman during the show, was encouraged to cut ties with Lomboard in the finale of the show. Unglert, who originally found interest in Schulman, flip flopped between the two girls this season. According to UsMagazine.com, Lombard says that Unglert is infamous for constantly changing his mind, and relationships are no exception. She further disclosed that the producers of the show make it seem like there’s always a greater opportunity to meet someone new and connect with somebody else. Sounds fishy!

This celebrity news continues the ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ drama from the most recent season. What are some ways to know if you’re respected by your S.O. in a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Dean is definitely looking sketchy after the nation watched him mess around with both Danielle and Kristina. This kind of situation is totally unfair — in order to prevent getting disrespected by your significant other, check out Cupid’s advice:

1. Communicate often: If you’re speculating that your partner is being dishonest, the best way to figure that out is through communication. If they aren’t communicating with you very often, or they don’t seem super serious about your relationship, it may be a cause for concern. Sit your significant other down and talk everything out — after all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

2. Talk to your friends: Though sometimes it’s better to avoid the opinions others have on your relationship, this may be a time where you should lean on their advice. If your friends or loved ones have been around you and your partner, ask them how they feel about them. Do they think they’re disrespectful? Or do they think you two go well together? Take their thoughts into consideration.

3. Listen to your gut: At the end of the day, your instincts will never guide you in the wrong direction. If you truly feel that something’s off, don’t torture yourself by being in a toxic relationship. When it comes down to it, the relationship may not be meant to be, and that’s completely okay.
