Paula Abdul spoke with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ about learning about the shooting deaths of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew. “I was devastated,” the ‘American Idol’ judge said. “I was immediately on the computer saying, ‘what’s going on here? This is crazy.'”
Paula added, “I can’t even imagine what it must feel like for her and her family and it doesn’t make any sense. It’s awful, it’s horrific, it’s unfathomable. Her whole family supported her talent. They knew that she was a special one. She is. She’ll continue to go on to do great things. I just hold her in my prayers and in my heart, and my heart goes out to her.”
