Wendy Williams' son was arrested on Wednesday after he got in a fight with his father, Kevin Hunter Sr.

TMZ broke the story revealing that Williams' son, Kevin Hunter Jr., assaulted Hunter at a store parking lot near the family's New Jersey home, as per sources. The outlet also cited insiders revealing that Williams took her 18-year-old son to the home to pick something up, following which she left the venue and was going to come back later to pick him up. 

Hunter Jr. allegedly did not know that his father was in the house, revealed TMZ, but at the same time, things were alright between the two at the time, before they ended up going to a store together just after midnight. It was at the store's parking lot where the father-son duo got into a fight over spousal support, which led to Hunter Sr. claiming that his estranged wife - Williams - was 'brainwashing' their son against him, reveals the outlet.

Following that, Hunter Sr. allegedly put his son in a headlock which caused Hunter Jr. to punch his father in the nose, sources told TMZ. Law enforcement sources confirmed to the outlet later in the day that Hunter Jr. was arrested for assaulting his father, but Hunter Sr. shared with TMZ that he doesn't want to pursue the matter legally. "I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear," Hunter Sr. said.

However, sources revealed to the outlet that Kevin Sr. has always urged his son to work towards his goals without turning to his mother for support. 

Williams filed for divorce from Hunter Sr. earlier this year, in April. The news came after several cheating rumors revolving around her manager and now estranged husband surfaced, with Page Sixx also claiming that Hunter Sr. had been cheating on his wife with another woman named Sharina Hudson, who gave birth to a baby in March,  which is supposed to be his.
