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.

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.
