Wendy Williams Files For Divorce From Husband Kevin Hunter After 21 Years Of Marriage

How you doin’, Wendy Williams? The talk show host filed for divorce from her husband of over two decades, Kevin Hunter on April 11 after months of rumors that he cheated.

Wendy Williams, 54, and husband Kevin Hunter, 46, are over. The talk show host filed for divorce on April 11, after 21 years of marriage, HollywoodLife has learned. “Wendy has indeed filed for divorce from Kevin, and Kevin was served this morning with divorce papers,” a source tells us. Despite recent reports that claim they’ve been on the rocks, along with allegations of his infidelity, Wendy always stood by her marriage and insisted she and Kevin were solid — until now. Wendy and Kevin, who wed on November 30, 1997, share a son, Kevin Jr., 18.

The queen of celebrity news and gossip was herself a subject of rumors and reports, especially when it came to her marriage. The Daily Mail published a report in 2017 in which they accused Kevin of carrying on a 10-year affair with Sharina Hudson, a 33-year-old massage therapist. After the story was published, Wendy vehemently denied the allegations publicly on her show, saying fans should “[not] believe the hype” and that her marriage was strong. A spokesman for Wendy also denied the story.

However, this wasn’t the first time her marriage was hit with an infidelity scandal. Wendy revealed to Vlad TV in 2013 that she found out Kevin was cheating on her mere months after she gave birth to their son! “If you told me when I was 25 years old or 30 years old that I would stay around for a cheater, I would have been like you are lying,” Wendy said, per Essence. “I’ve got way too much to offer a man to stick around for him cheating on me. At that particular time, I had my career in radio, I was making a great salary, I had vacation property of my very own and the world was my oyster, so I definitely thought I wasn’t staying around for some cheating. But I did and I don’t regret it.”

“No, I’m not back to the girl that I was before him because when you get stung like that you never go back to who you were, only a fool does,” said Wendy. “But I love him and he loves me.”

Wendy and Kevin were married on November 30, 1997, about four years after first meeting, according to E! News. After two heartbreaking miscarriages, the couple welcomed son Kevin Hunter Jr. in 2000. Prior to her marriage with Kevin, Wendy was married once before. She used a pseudonym when writing about her first husband in her memoir, Wendy’s Got the Heat.
