Jennifer Hudson dissolved into tears as she testified at the trial of William Balfour — the man accused of murdering her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew. Jennifer was the first witness called by the prosecution.  She testified that no one in the family wanted Balfour to marry her sister Julia Hudson . . . and they didn’t like the way he treated her.  She added that she never liked Balfour . . . even in grammar school.  And she said, quote, “Where he was, I tried not to be.  So if I saw him, I separated myself.” And Jennifer broke down on the witness stand as she talked about spending time with her now-deceased family members just a week before they were killed. Jennifer’s fiancé, WWE superstar DAVID OTUNGA, was there to show his support. Julia then took the witness stand and testified that Balfour threatened to kill her several times . . . especially after she left him. She said that a few months before the murders, he tried to get back with her, and she turned him down.  He told her, quote, “If you leave, you will be the last to die.”
Pilar Sanders has been arrested for domestic violence after allegedly attacking Deion Sanders in their Texas home this afternoon. Deion took to his Twitter account earlier today to tweet about a domestic issue with his estranged wife Pilar. Deion, who still shares a home with his soon-to-be ex-wife, tweeted around 5 p.m. Monday “Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She’s going to jail n I’m pressing charges!
Deion accused Pilar of faking an injury, but she is now in police custody. According to TMZ, Deion claims he didn’t harm Pilar, and only “defended” himself until he was able to call police. It’s been rumoured that the beat down is a result of the photos of Deion hugged up with Tracey Edmonds at an event in New York. In case you missed it, Pilar did accuse Tracey who is the ex-wife of Babyface of being one of Deion’s mistresses’.
Tracey denied that the two were involved and claimed, “I am shocked to learn that Pilar Sanders is trying to drag me and my employees through her prenuptial dispute. I cannot understand why she continues to create public issues out of her private life issues and feel very sorry for their children.” OUCH!

Essence Magazine’s editor-in-chief Constance C.R. White has apparently fired Managing Editor Michael Bullerdick after being made privy to his private facebook page which contained racially offensive posts and comments. According to, a reader sent a screenshot of Bullerdick’s private facebook page and sent it to The Maynard Institute’s Journal-isms site who sent it on to Essence.  “Essence readers would be shocked to find that Bullerdick, who under the prodding of Time Inc became the first white male editor at the magazine last year, openly espouses extremist Right-wing views that run counter to what Essence has historically stood for,” the reader wrote.
