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.

Do you wish you had the secret to looking your best in your clothes like your neighbor, friend or iconic movie star? Knowing what styles work for your body shape is essential to getting the best overall appearance. When you look at your favorite character from television or a movie, notice how they wear the same few silhouettes. This is because their glam celebrity style squad knows what to buy so they’ll always look their best.

Find the celebrity your body most resembles and get stylin’!

Drew Barrymore, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Hudson: You’re wider on top than the bottom and are considered to have an apple body type. You most likely have a full bust and slender legs. Create a balance by wearing more subdued darker patterns and colors on top–and brighter hues and textures on the bottom. This balances out your shape. V-necks are your friend too!

Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson: You have wider hips, narrow shoulders, smaller bust and are bigger on the bottom. Your body type can be described as pear shape. Create a balance in your shape by wearing your brighter patterns and colors up top. Minimize your bottom half with darker colors and simple bottoms.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman and Keira Knightly: You have an overall thin frame with an undefined waist, little curves like a rectangle. You can indulge in most necklines and can create the appearance of a curvier figure with full circle, trumpet and flared skirts and feminine tops that cinch at your waistline creating a hourglass shape.

Marilyn Monroe, Kim Kardashian and Christina Hendricks: You have a defined waist and your hips and bust are noticeably wider imitating an hourglass shape. Emphasizing your waist is key! Make a friend with a tailor. Most of your wardrobe will need to be taken in at the waist. Wrap dress and styles that have a built in waist will pair well with your body type.

Oprah and Melissa McCarthy ladies are considered extra curvy in addition to one of the shapes above. Always create a waist and go for v-neck necklines. You can create an illusion of a smaller waist with belts– or buying styles that already have a seam that makes one for you–like A wrap or body seamed sheath dresses.

The common goal for all body types is to create and enhance your waist like the sex symbols of the 1950’s. You can implement these simple tips to feel fab at any size.
