Jennifer Hudson Getting Back to Work *UPDATED*



Us Weekly Magazine is reporting that Jennifer Hudson is headed back to work. Theola Borden, a spokesperson for her label, J Records, told the Associated Press that the singer will begin filming a music video in L.A. next week for her latest single, "If It Isn't Love."

Hudson was scheduled to film the clip when her mother, Darnell Donerson, 57; brother, Jason, 29, and 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, were fatally shot in Chicago on Oct. 24. The announcement that she will return to work comes more than a month after her family's funeral and less than a week after her estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour, had been charged in the slayings.  Jennifer Hudson has cancelled the first video shoot scheduled since the October deaths of her mother, brother and nephew, a source tells Usmagazine.com.

*UPDATE*
The Oscar winner, 27, planned on shooting the clip for "If It Isn't Love" in L.A. next week, her J Records rep confirmed to the Associated Press Dec. 9. But "the video was set up before the tragedy and she felt like she should finish what she started, but she's realized that she's not ready to go back to work," a source tells Us.  "It's too early," the source adds. 

A personal rep for Hudson, however, calls the original video plans "speculation.  "The video shoot was never confirmed, so there was nothing to cancel," the rep tells Usmagazine.com. "[J Records' statement] was erroneous."
