Wendy Williams files for divorce from husband Kevin Hunter after nearly 22 years of marriage
After continuous cheating and breakup rumors, it was revealed Wendy Williams is divorcing her manager and husband of nearly 22 years, Kevin Hunter.
According to PageSix, Williams' attorney confirmed, the day time talk show host has filed for a divorce. The news of the split comes after continuous rumors that stated Hunter had been cheating on his wife with another woman named Sharina Hudson who gave birth to a baby last month and it is suspected to be Hunter's.
Just before her breakup, Williams was seen flaunting a ring that wasn't her wedding band on her finger. Williams, 54, and Hunter, 46, have an 18-year-old son called Kevin Jr. Rumors of Hunter cheating on Williams have been plaguing the internet for a few years to date. And each time a rumor was out Williams defended her husband.
Williams took a long break from 'The Wendy Williams Show' from January until March, stating she had a fractured shoulder and needed it to recover. She also revealed she had to take care of herself due to Grave’s disease, an autoimmune disease which affects the thyroid.
In an interview with People in 2017, she revealed her husband had been a pillar of strength through her diagnosis. “My husband was extremely concerned,” she said. “He’s not just my husband, he’s my business partner, one of the executive producers on the show and he’s also my manager. He and I are glued at the hip. He was with me every step,” she said. “For him, seeing me go through all of this, it’s really been trying on him. I’ve been concerned about him. I’m like, ‘Don’t worry about me!’”
Recently, when the rumors of Hunter cheating arose yet again, she denied it. "I’m still very much in love with my husband and anyone who’s been married, you know. Marriages have ebbs and flows, marriage isn’t easy. And don’t ask me about mine until you see this gone,” she added, flaunting her wedding ring saying, “And it ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime.” This was Williams' second marriage.
