Wendy Williams Finalizes Divorce from Ex-Husband Kevin Hunter: Reports
Written by Lindah Nduwumwami on January 23, 2020
Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter are reportedly officially divorced. Williams 55, and Hunter, 46, are each foregoing alimony and will sell their New Jersey home and share those proceeds, according to court documents obtained by Page Six. The outlet reports that Hunter will sign over his shares of Wendy Williams productions to her and that she will get their joint bank account, while he will keep his cars and separate businesses. TMZ also confirmed the divorce is finalized and reports that Williams will keep their home in Florida, while Hunter will receive the proceeds from another recently sold home in New Jersey. The exes were married for over two decades before the Wendy Williams Show host filed for divorce in April 2019. They share son Kevin Jr., 19.
The split unfolded after Hunter allegedly fathered a child with his mistress. Last summer Williams confirmed that she decided to divorce Hunter once she believed that he’d impregnated a woman with whom he was having an affair. He broke his silence on the cheating scandal in a statement to PEOPLE after the divorce filing, admitting he was “not proud of my recent actions.”
“I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” he said. “No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine.” (Williams, who has struggled with a cocaine addiction in the past, spent some time living in a sober house last year.) The TV host has already cut all ties with her ex professionally. He was removed as executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show, and Williams dissolved The Hunter Foundation, the non-profit organization the couple founded in 2014.
