    In an interview with Ebony, singer/actress Jennifer Hudson revealed that she believes her fiancée saved her life by inviting her to Florida and keeping her out of her family home the day her mother and brother were shot dead in October 2008. Fate? Serendipity? Both?

    J Hud visited professional wrestler David Otunga in October 2008 at the same time her mom Darnell and brother Jason were gunned down in Chicago, Illinois. The body of Hudson's seven-year-old nephew Julian King was also found in a car nearby a few days later.

    Hudson could have been a victim had she turned down Otunga's invitation to attend the WWE match.

    "That's one of the things that saved my life. Because I could have been home with my mom then. He wanted me to come out to Florida with him instead of going to Chicago. I flew out to see him; that's why I'm still here. I've never said that before, and I can't believe I just said that now. But I didn't know," Hudson said. "He was just like: ‘I'm going to this wrestling thing and it's in Tampa. I'm going out there now, so you can come out there and see me versus going home.'"

    Sometimes fate intervenes.

    Do you think Jennifer Hudson had someone looking out for her in this instance?
