Jennifer Hudson will never get 'closure'
Nov 8, 2012, 20:01 GMT
Jennifer Hudson will never feel 'complete closure' over the brutal murders of three of her family members.
The 31-year-old singer-and-actress - whose brother-in-law William Balfour received three life sentences last July for killing her mother Darnell Donerson, 57, her brother Jason Hudson, 29, and her seven-year-old nephew Julian King on October 24, 2008 - said her emotional wounds have not healed and they probably never will.
She told the December issue of Redbook magazine: 'Do I feel relief? Yes, to a certain extent. I mean, you can never fully get complete closure - whatever that means. Is there really ever a point of closure? Do I feel healed? No.'
Earlier this year the 'Dreamgirls' actress said she had managed to forgive her brother-in-law for the shootings because she felt they weren't his fault.
She said: 'It's how he was brought up. We tried to offer love, but you were so far gone, that you couldn't even see that.
'A lot of things came out, that we didn't even know about, from his upbringing, which is like he never had a chance.
'Had you had the love my mother gave us, or the background that some have, then you would've stood a chance.'
In September Jennifer revealed she had yet to visit the graves of her three murdered relatives, but she is now ready to see their resting place after 'justice' was done when 31-year-old Balfour - the estranged husband of Jennifer's sister Julia - received three life sentences without the possibility of parole and 120 years for other crimes, including aggravated kidnapping, in July.
