Jennifer Hudson got cold feet when it came to marrying fiance David Otunga, but according to new reports, the singer and actress is now ready to tie the knot.

Although reps for Hudson denied she and Otunga ever split, RadarOnline reports the Academy Award winner is now ready to get her nearly four-year engagement back on track, with sources telling the website that the couple is getting ready to marry.

“Jennifer started feeling like it just wasn’t right,” the source told the website. “So many bad things have happened since they got engaged in 2008 that have prevented them from finally getting married, and she was worried that she was just trying too hard to make something happen that wasn’t meant to be.”

The past few years have been especially difficult for Hudson, whose mother, Darnell Donerson, 57; brother, Jason Hudson, 29; and 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, were murdered in 2008. Nearly four years after their deaths, Hudson's ex-brother-in-law, William Balfour, was finally convicted of their murders in May. Hudson even testified at the trial and gave emotional testimony, telling the jury that she had warned her sister, Julia, against marrying Balfour.

According to the source, the stress of the trial was just too much for Hudson, who decided to quietly call off the wedding and even returned her engagement ring to Otunga. "She was extremely stressed out and processing a lot of emotions about the murder of her family after the trial ended, and she just cracked," said the source.

But now that the trial is over, Hudson is reportedly ready to give the relationship another shot and make things official. The source told RadarOnline the couple is currently planning the wedding, since Hudson "realized that [Otunga] was her rock and that she wanted to spend her life with him."
