Wendy Williams has filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter
After many denials that there was trouble in paradise, Williams officially filed for divorce on April 11. She hasn’t made an official statement on the matter but talked around it on her show.
The topic came up during the “Their business is our business” section of the show. Williams said, “Their business is our business. It’s been the motto of the hot topics bureau since the show was invented during our six-week sneak peek 11 years ago… And it’s so crazy because now my business is your business… Turnabout’s a fair game. I get it.”
A spokesperson from The Wendy Williams Show also released a statement according to CNN. “Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years,” said the spokesperson. “We respect their privacy regarding personal matters. As always, we remain committed to bringing an entertaining and topical show to our viewers.”
Hunter reportedly was accused of poisoning Williams by a caller
TMZ reports there is a police report about a call from someone who said they worked for Williams’ production company that happened in January. The caller believed Hunter was slipping something to Williams and wanted a wellness check on her.
Two officers then reportedly went to her home in New Jersey where they were greeted by Hunter. Hunter reportedly was hesitant to let them in to talk to Williams, but eventually did. The talk show host was in bed “with the blanket covering from neck to toe.”
Williams reportedly denied the poisoning claim to cops
Once Hunter was asked to leave so they could speak to her alone, they asked her if there was any truth to the claim she was being poisoned.
When the cops first asked if she was being poisoned Williams reportedly answered with something like “Well, I’m very popular.” They then pushed for an answer again she tearfully denied it. The officer left once Williams claimed she was okay.
Hunter has released a statement about the divorce. “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans,” he said. “I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs. 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.”
He has since been fired from his executive producer position on The Wendy Williams Show and cut from the credits. Williams has also reportedly gotten more personal security since the split, according to Page Six.
