Jennifer Hudson Steps Out Of Court

Jennifer Hudson had to flee the courtroom today during the trial of the man accused of wiping out her family.

It happened just before photos of the blood-soaked body of Jennifer's seven-year-old nephew, Julian, were shown to the jury.

The OscarĀ® winner waited until the photo exhibits were removed before returning to her seat in court.

For the first time, defendant William Balfour showed emotion, dabbing his eyes with a tissue as the photos of little Julian were shown.
