Hudson gives house to assistant

Jennifer Hudson has proved she is the world's most generous boss by giving her assistant a house for Christmas.

The Dreamgirls star posted a video on her Instagram page showing long-time assistant Walter Williams' reaction to his extravagant gift, according to the Daily Mail.

She captioned the video: "My assistant Walter's reaction when he found out I was buying him a house for Christmas!"

It shows Jennifer, 32, casually walking past Walter in a living room full of people as he looks through a folder of papers - but he drops them and begins screaming when he sees something in them that tells him he is being given a house.

Walter jumps up and down and then pounces on Jennifer, giving her a huge hug and looking amazed at the gift.

The pair have known each other since they were classmates in sixth grade at school and Jennifer has credited Walter with teaching her about music outside her church.

She told Time Out Chicago in 2009 that by eighth grade: "He was like, 'I'm gonna be your manager.' I was like, 'Boy, please'."
