Jennifer Hudson is refusing to go back to the Chicago house where her mother Darnell Donerson and brother Jason Hudson were fatally shot
Jennifer Hudson is refusing to go back to the house where her mother and brother were fatally shot.
The Oscar-winning actress is so distraught over the loss of mom Darnell Donerson and sibling Jason Hudson that she cannot visit the Chicago property in which their bodies were found.
Andre Leon Talley, a friend of the star, said: "I believe she went back just once, to the gate, but didn't go inside. Right now she's at an undisclosed location."
It has also been reported the 27-year-old actress - who can soon be seen starring alongside Alicia Keys and Dakota Fanning in 'The Secret Life of Bees' - is taking some time off her busy acting schedule to concentrate on her family obligations.
Demitrias Jackson, Jennifer's cousin, explained: "She has been doing good. She's very strong and she's holding the family together.
"She is going to take a break from acting. She'll be taking time for herself and to be with her family."
The body of Jennifer's seven-year-old nephew Julian King, the son of the actress' sister Julia, was found in a SUV (sports utility vehicle) in a car park near the family's Chicago house, three days after Darnell and Jason were shot.
