Who Is Wendy Williams’ Rumored Love Interest Will Da Boss?
Since divorcing her longtime husband Kevin Hunter, Wendy Williams’ love life has been under the microscope more than ever. While details about her relationship status are scarce, several public appearances and social media posts indicate that she’s seeing a man who goes by the name Will Da Boss. Here’s what you need to know about her rumored new beau.
Who exactly is Will Da Boss?
For starters, his real name is William Selby — and he is a celebrity jeweler who has created pieces for big-name clients such as Drake, 50 Cent, and Rick Ross, according to his website.
He was born in 1977 and grew up in Brooklyn, New York, per the website. As an adult, Will worked in engineering and the music industry before getting into the jewelry business. In 2008, he launched the New York-based shop DWS Jewelry & Co.
How does Will Da Boss know Wendy Williams?
While it’s not clear how he and Williams met, the television star has received jewelry from Will in the past. They began sparking romance rumors in January when Williams posted a photo to Instagram showing her wearing one of Will’s chains.
While speaking about how she acquired the necklace on a later episode of her eponymous talk show, she raved about Will and all they have in common — from their shared love of food to their astrological sign. However, she characterized him as a “friend.”
Will went on to surprise her with a diamond heart-shaped necklace for Valentine’s Day 2020, which she gushed about on the show.
“He looked very handsome and he brought me two different hearts, and he said, ‘Which one do you like best?’ and I liked the puffed heart,” she told the audience. A crew member who saw the ordeal chimed in and gave Will the stamp of approval.
The same month, Williams and her alleged beau made several public appearances together. Williams shared a picture of them hanging together and getting close at an unknown location on February 22. But she still has not yet confirmed any romance.
What is the status of Wendy Williams’ divorce from Kevin Hunter?
Her divorce was finalized in January, according to multiple outlets.
Williams announced in April 2019 that she was pulling the plug on her 21-year marriage to Hunter after she learned he allegedly had a child with his mistress. In a later interview, Williams confessed that she had long known about Hunter’s indiscretions but said she stayed for the sake of their son, Kevin Jr., 19. However, the baby, she claimed, was the last straw.
“Infidelity is one thing, a full baby is a whole other topic. A baby! I’m not changing pampers, I want to be pampered,” Williams said in a 2019 appearance on The View.
Hunter later apologized for his actions in a statement shared with People and said he would “continue to work with and fully support” Williams regardless of what happened. It’s unclear if that applies to her apparent new relationship, but we’ll see.
