Did Wendy Williams’ Husband Just Apologize for Cheating?

Sometimes relationships end in happily ever afters and then others result in divorces where one party is fighting the other for half of their net worth. The jury is still out on which category Wendy Williams and her husband Kevin Hunter will end up in.

But if Williams filing for divorce last week is anything to go by, then we would put our money on the latter.

Williams filing for divorce

After months of cheating rumors, the talk show host filed for divorce on Thursday. Williams’ team released a statement surrounding the split.

“Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time. Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together,” her team said in a statement. “No additional comment will be provided at this time.”

What does Hunter have to say?

During all of the cheating allegations, Hunter has remained relatively silent. But today, he finally spoke out.

“I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans,” Hunter said in a statement obtained by People. “I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.” 

He went on, wishing Williams the best.

“28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams,” he continued. “At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally. No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine.”

“I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal,” he finished. “Thank you.”

Why did Hunter and Williams split?

Previously, Williams never directly commented on the cheating allegations. She did, however, defend her relationship on her show more than once.

“Anybody who’s been married for 5 minutes or 500 years, you know marriages have ebbs and flows,” Williams once said on her show. “Marriages are not easy. Don’t ask me about mine until you see this [ring] gone and it ain’t going anywhere—not in this lifetime.”

But according to sources close to the couple, the cheating recently became too much for the star.

“The split is definitely due to Kevin’s ongoing infidelity and that his mistress recently welcomed their child,” a source told People. “Wendy had hired a private investigator and confronted him. He confessed to everything three weeks ago.”

“All of the recent drama put a huge strain on Wendy and caused her to struggle with her sobriety as she did everything she could to try and save their marriage,” the person continued. “The decision to split was terribly hard for her, but she’s regaining her health. She decided she needed to finally put herself first.”
