Jennifer Hudson is buying a home in Burr Ridge that has been for sale for $2.795 million. The award-winning Chicago singer and actress has a contract pending on a six-bedroom and scheduled
to close in January. The mansion went under contract last week. The final price will not be recorded until the sale is closed, but the seller\'s agent confessed that the singer will get the house for 33 percent less than the original asking price of $4.2 million. The pad was built in 2007 and boasts seven bathrooms, a heated garage, a theatre and two laundry rooms. As well as a luxurious kitchen space the property also comes with a finished walk-out basement as well as cherry hardwood floors. In September, Hudson joined Mayor Rahm Emanuel to celebrate the grand opening of the Jennifer Hudson Weight Watcher\'s Center in the Kenwood neighborhood.
