Jennifer Hudson still not ready for the ‘Spotlight’

I can definitely understand her not being ready to perform. When this report first surfaced it was a bit surprising because she probably needs counseling and getting onstage should may be months or even years away. Her fans would be there in droves to support her but I think she needs to just heal.

Last week, Jennifer Hudson‘s label confirmed that the singer would work on her first music video since the murders of her mother, brother and nephew in October. Over the weekend, however, reports surfaced that Hudson is not quite ready to get back to work.

Chicago cops have arrested William Balfour for the murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mom, brother, and nephew.

Balfour was transferred to CPD custody today after they served an arrest warrant. Charges from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office are pending.

UPDATE: We’re told the CPD had no new evidence against Balfour — but they were finally able to scrape all the dirt on him into one pile, which was enough to make the arrest. Also, Balfour is still waiting to be formally charged — and this could take a day, or up to a week.

CHICAGO (AP) – Busted for what police said was a rock of cocaine on the driver’s seat of his car, William Balfour could have been spending the past few months behind bars for a parole violation.The 27-year-old felon was instead allowed to remain free and is now considered a suspect in the deaths of Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

On the day the victims were fatally shot and the young boy went missing, Balfour told his parole agent he had missed a meeting because he was baby-sitting, records show.

By midnight, investigators involved in a frantic search for 7-year-old Julian King had contacted parole officials and requested emergency addresses, visitor lists, telephone numbers and “anything further” connected to Balfour, according to documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.

No one has been charged in the killings. An Amber Alert issued on Friday named Balfour as a suspect in the deaths of Hudson’s mother, 57-year-old Darnell Donerson, and brother, 29-year-old Jason Hudson. Julian, Balfour’s stepson, was found Monday shot to death in the back of an SUV on Chicago’s West Side.

The Illinois Department of Corrections issued a warrant for Balfour on Saturday for violating terms of his parole by possessing a weapon and failing to attend anger management counseling and a substance abuse program, according to his parole report.
