Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Though her body remains testament to its success, Jennifer Hudson is no longer a face of Weight Watchers.

The Dreamgirls star and the weight-loss brand have parted ways after four years, her commitment to the company fulfilled, her rep confirms to E! News.

“My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing,” Hudson said in a statement Friday. “I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me. I have chosen to step away from my role as ambassador and I am excited for the year to come, with many new projects and lots of new music.”

Speculation about a possibly not-very-amicable split circulated earlier today after Hudson tweeted-then-deleted: “Sometimes you have to step back and let your work speak for you, and when that doesn’t work you walk away knowing you did your best…It’s been fun and a pleasure good luck to you all. @WeightWatchers.”

Hudson welcomed son David in 2009 and hooked up with Weight Watchers the following year—and never looked back. The American Idol castoff turned Oscar winner ultimately shed 80 pounds and became quite the red-carpet standout, having gone from a size 16 to a 6.

In 2013, Hudson appeared in a commercial with Jessica Simpson, who signed on with Weight Watchers after the birth of her daughter Maxwell and then returned as a soon-to-be successful face of the program after having son Ace last year.
