Williams’ marriage has been under scrutiny since there were rumors that her husband was having an affair. Hunter was photographed with a woman named Sharina Hudson in 2017. Gossip columns claimed the two have been having an affair for more than a decade.

The rumored affair got more attention because it was being reported that Hunter bought a home for Hudson not too far from William’s home in New Jersey. Then there was a rumor that Hudson gave birth to a daughter, but it has yet to be confirmed whether or not Hunter is the father.

Williams defended the state of their marriage on her show

When the Wendy Williams Show star returned to her show she addressed the rumors. “I want to shout-out to my husband. I’m still wearing my ring,” she said according to People. “Believe me you, when you’ve been with somebody for 28 years, married for 25 years … we know each other. … I know what you’ve been seeing … but I’m still very much in love with my husband and anyone who’s been married … you know.”

She did note that their marriage isn’t perfect. “Marriages have ebbs and flows, marriage isn’t easy. And don’t ask me about mine until you see this gone,” she said. “And it ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime.”

However, it’s possible that Williams had a change of heart because there is a report that she just filed for divorce.

Williams’ lawyer reportedly confirmed she is filing for divorce

The talk show host has defended her husband for some time and would deny divorce rumors. However, she reportedly is ending her marriage.

Page Six is reported that Williams’ lawyer confirmed that she is divorcing Hunter on April 11 after 22 years. Hunter was reportedly served with papers that morning. People is also reporting that a mysterious source confirmed she filed for divorce. The couple got married back in 1997 and they have a son together named Kevin Hunter Jr.

She reportedly is wearing a diamond ring that isn’t her wedding band

Another sign that the tide might be turning is that Williams was recently seen in an Instagram video getting her hair done. She looks at the camera and moves her hands showing off a diamond flower ring instead of her wedding band.
