Wendy Williams had to face the world when she became a hot topic often discussed on her popular talk show segment. The media maven’s marriage of over 20 years ended when she filed for divorce upon discovering that her husband, Kevin Hunter, impregnated his longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson. Hunter and Hudson are still in a relationship and he says that his former business and personal relationship with Charlamagne Tha God soured because Charlamagne was jealous of his relationship with his Hudson.
Charlamagne Tha God says his relationship with Kevin Hunter went south when Hunter accused him of introducing Sharina Hudson to other men
Charlamagne has been open about Hunter giving him his big break in radio. The South Carolina native began business dealings with Hunter after he was let go from his radio gig. Hunter felt responsible for Charlamagne’s firing as Charlamagne blew the whistle that his radio station was not playing daily live shows of Williams in the syndicated market.
To make up for it, Hunter arranged for Charlamagne to move to New York, where he lived rent-free in one of Hunter’s condos for several years.
Though Charlamagne never officially signed a management contract with Hunter, Hunter continued to secure his business deals. Hunter explained their relationship soured when he discovered that Charlamagne took a radio gig in Philadelphia without telling him.
But Charlamagne has a different story, explaining that Hunter’s eventual mistress was the cause of their rift.
Hunter and Hudson began having an affair at some point after Charlamagne introduced the two. Charlamagne and Hudson grew up together in South Carolina and were lifelong friends. The dispute also led to Charlamagne and Williams being estranged for over a decade.
“The reason Kevin Hunter and I fell out, and the reason why I don’t communicate with Wendy anymore is because of Sharina,” Charlamagne told Page Six in March 2019. “Kevin got upset because he thought Sharina liked one of my homeboys and he thought that I was hooking Sharina up [with other men].”

Williams fired Hunter as her manager and executive producer of her talk show shortly before her divorce announcement. She also patched things up with Charlamagne. Now that some time has passed, Hunter is telling his side of the story, specifically on where things went awry with Charlamagne.
In an exclusive interview with YouTube star Tasha K, Hunter explained that the reason Charlamagne has such ill feelings toward him is because Charlamagne wanted to date Hudson.
Hunter claims Charlamagne introduced him to Hudson in hopes that he’d help her with her modeling career. He admitted that he began an affair with Hudson but that he “went home every night” to be with Williams.
According to Hunter, Charlamagne began acting funny toward him when he discovered the affair because he also liked Hudson and was upset that Hudson chose to date Hunter instead of him.
“He [Charlamagne] really liked shorty [Hudson]. He used to tow her to me like, ‘Yo, she the baddest girl in town, nobody can’t get her,” Hunter said. “He [Charlamagne] did not expect for us to hit it off the way we did. I didn’t expect it, I know she [Hudson] didn’t.”
Hunter said that Hudson eventually moved into the same condo as Charlamagne. He explained that Charlamagne started to talk negatively about him to Hudson in hopes that she’d break things off with him.
He told Tasha that he doesn’t understand Charlamagne’s upsetness with him because he had a chance to make his move while he and Hudson lived in the same building.
“I’m going home every night, no matter what me and her [Hudson] doing, she know I’m going home every night…whatever he [Charlamagne] was trying to do, whatever he would have accomplished in the time that I was gone…it would have been cool,” Hunter said.
The two have not spoken since their falling out and Charlamagne insists there’s no hope of reconciliation or being cordial with Hunter.
