Inside Jennifer Hudson's $2.8 MILLION CHICAGO MANSION!

Chicago southside native Jennifer Hudson recently celebrated her Weight Watchers, singing, and acting success...by copping a lavish 6-bedroom mansion in the city's southwest suburbs. Come inside and see what $2.8 million will get you in the Chi......

Weight Watchers spokeswoman Jennifer Hudson may rock a slim frame but best believe she sleeps in a FAT crib! The Oscar and Grammy winning artist recently plunked down $2.8 million bucks for a huge 12,000 square foot mansion in Burr Ridge, IL, a swanky southwest Chicago suburb.

The 16-room stone-built mansion has 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, heated garage space for 6 cars, 2 laundry rooms and a fully finished walk-out basement.

And if that isn't enough, the home also boasts a floating curved staircase in the foyer, formal living and dining rooms, a library, eat-in kitchen, double-height family room, a game room and home theater.  Well damn!

And rumor has it that J-Hud got it at a steal because the home's original asking price was $4.2 Mill!

Check out some pics from inside her new pad she'll be sharing with her fiance David and baby boy David, Jr.:

BONUS:

Speaking of posh real estate, could Jay-Z and Beyonce soon be living "La Vida Loca" in Miami Beach? 

The fab couple recently took a tour of Ricky Martin Miami pad which carries a hefty price tag of $12.1M.  The 9,491 square-foot ocean-front crib has 7 bedrooms, 10 baths, a swimming pool and neighbors like Miami Heat superstars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
 

Gorge!  Looks like the multi million dollar couple will have a sanctuary from the harsh NY winters...

This is how people waste

This is how people waste their money unnecessarily. Mary J. Blige did the same foolish thing, plunking down $12mil on a home when it's just her and Kendu...even if his two kids come over, why do you need all of that? Just so people can say "look at her house, she's rich?" Don't live your life based on what people have to say. Does Jennifer REALLY NEED 6 bedrooms and 5 baths? Seriously...with one man and one child? Is her and his whole family moving in? Before folks jump down my throat, I am not saying she shouldn't have a nice house but in this economy, she could have been a little more wise IF she bought something LESS expensive and bank the rest of that money. People always think the gravy train is going to always be rolling in but it ain't so. Just because one makes bank doesn't mean you always have to show the world that you make major loot by buying ridiculously expensive, ridiculously large home...look at Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffet...they lived/live in modest homes even though they are BILLIONAIRES. Just my two rusty cents Jennifer, I better NOT read about you as I did about Fantasia.

The address is 8592 Johnston

The address is 8592 Johnston Rd, Burr Ridge, IL. According to the Trulia website, the property taxes are nearly $40K per year, but the HOA fees are only $100 per month. She got a deal, due to the fact that she is a celebrity. But, then again, she did make huge SACRIFICES to put her at her current celebrity status. LOL!

Sound like some jackass of a

Sound like some jackass of a cowart. Hating on someone who have earned her success through hardwork. Jennifer Hudson is one of the hardest working artist in the business. Her talents speaks for itself. (wtf) keep taking what you don't know, and you might find yourself unanonymous!!!

Does the average person care

Does the average person care about Jennifer Hudson? Let's be real -- if the tragedy that happened to her family hadn't occurred, J. Hud wouldn't be a recognizable name. I don't get the point of buying a $2.8 million house when you're rocking a .99 Store wig. Wake me if & when "Punk" decides to walk her down the aisle.

That's a lie and the truth is

That's a lie and the truth is no where near. Jennifer Hudson was already well established before her family tragedy. What plantation you dummies come off. Jhud voice and vocals is what brought her to fame and fortune, alone with some special skills from Jesus Christ. Small minded people will believe and buy into anything. I am just happy Jen knows her worth, and have developed a thick skin for you haters!!!!

Zzzzzzzz on Bey & Jay.....As for Jennifer, this grand house is a few years too late...As soon as I got a Milli, my family would have had a home....Inglewood/Englewood in Chicago is the equivalent to South Central or Afghan. It's where the majority of the city's crime occurs.....I don't care if her family didn't want leave, the house would have been there for them....Why brag about this shit now when you left your family in squalor? That's why I don't like that leather face heifer!

People just really have no regard for what they allow to come out of their mouths. How is it that you feel you can say something so horrible with no merit? You are going to have to give an account as well so you might want to be less reckless with you allegations. I hope you are just one of those who have cyberballs and just pop off on the net b/c if this is how you are in real life I feel sorry for you.

Wow, that's some serious hate

Wow, that's some serious hate or just plain old jealousy. FYI, JHud is in the earning bracket where one or two performances would be more than enough to cover her taxes, insurance, utilities, maintenance, and association fee for a year. So, get on back to the french fry rack or are they allowing you to flip burgers today? Either way, you've got to work 320 days to live like you do while Jennifer only has to work a couple of days to live like this. She works about 200 days a year plus owns that brand new Weight Watchers facility, so I don't think we have to worry about her finances.
