Jennifer Hudson’s half-brother, Steven Simpson, has been arrested after a frenzied attack on his estranged wife’s lover.
The singer’s brother reportedly stabbed the man in the face several times and is now being held in Michigan for attempted murder.
Unfortunately for Jennifer, this is not the first violent incident to impact her family. Back in 2008, her mother and brother were found dead with her nephew also being reported missing only to be found deceased three days later.
They were murdered by Jennifer’s sister Julia’s estranged husband, William Balfour who is currently serving three counts of first-degree murder for the tragic crimes.
The deaths deeply affected the singer and she has set up a fund for families of similar crimes known as The Hudson-King Foundation for Families of Slain Victims.
Jennifer’s third album, JHUD, is due for release next month, although it is unknown how recent events will impact this.
