Jennifer Hudson Net Worth 2017: How Much Is JHud Worth?

Jennifer Hudson is one of the hardest working entertainers in the world.  From her appearance on Empire as Michelle White to her current role on The Voice, J-Hud doesn't stop working.  As a coach on season 13 of The Voice, Hudson expects her team to work as hard as she does.  Not everyone's a fan of Hudson's attitude and she most likely won't return for season 14.

Hudson has done it all and I think it's time for her to start focusing on her love life.  She has been engaged to former professional wrestler, David Otunga for nine years but they're not rushing down the aisle.  They have a child together and Hudson is confident that he's not going anywhere.
