Wendy Williams filed for divorce from her husband Kevin Hunter last month, but it seems like a clean break is somewhere in the far distant future.
Hunter has reportedly filed legal documents to obtain alimony from his estranged wife. According to TMZ Hunter is asking for spousal support and child support for their 18 year-old-son, Kevin Hunter Jr.
Hunter allegedly wants Williams to foot the bill for their son’s college expenses, even though their son will turn 19 in just a few months.
The news comes after Wendy reportedly paid Hunter a lump sum of $10 million dollars to part ways amicably. The two were not only former lovers but business partners, with Hunter serving as her manager and as an executive producer on The Wendy Williams Show. However, after she filed for divorce Williams permanently severed business ties by firing Hunter as her manager and as an executive producer.
Both Hunter and Williams have not yet divulged what led to the demise of their marriage, although numerous rumors have pointed to alleged physical and emotional abuse that Williams endured.
Everything came to a head in April after Hunter’s alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth to a daughter last month. A few days after the reports surfaced, Williams presented Hunter with the official divorce papers, cementing the end of their 21-year-marriage.
Multiple sources allege that the infidelity and abuse in the marriage forced Williams to relapse, breaking her lengthy sobriety from a previous drug addiction. In January Williams returned to her show to share that she had been living in a sober house to seek support for her addiction.
However, since she filed for divorce from Hunter, Williams has gained a slew of supporters who have praised her for stepping away from what seemed to be a toxic relationship. Hopefully she will continue on her self-love journey, even if her ex consistently tries to throw a wrench in journey to healing.
