Wendy Williams splits from hubby Kevin Hunter

Though it came after weeks, even months, of denials on Williams' part, every person has their breaking point and the New Jersey native had already outlined hers in her 2001 memoir, Wendy's Got the Heat.

An attorney for The Wendy Williams Show host has confirmed to Page Six, she did file to divorce her husband of 21-years. However, their marriage has been the center of many rumors lately and Williams has pushed back on them.

Williams also flashed the sparkler in 2017 when she told viewers not to "believe the hype" amid the Daily Mail's ongoing reports about her husband's alleged affair. They share a 19-year-old son, Kevin Hunter Jr., together. There are things that make it hard to laugh; hard to live the way you want.

"She won't be booked again", the insider said. Infidelity rumors have long dogged Hunter, prompting Williams to periodically defend their union on her nationally syndicated show.




TMZ reports that Wendy has officially filed for divorce and served her soon to be estranged partner at the Wendy Williams studios. The woman also claimed she saw Hunter be abusive toward Williams. "Marriages have ebbs and flows, marriage isn't easy. Only a couple of the audience members asked me [about it]", she said before adding, "I felt awful".

Another sign that the tide might be turning is that Williams was recently seen in an Instagram video getting her hair done. But not only did she not wear the ring, she went out of her way to show you that the ring had been removed and replaced with a floral ring fans are familiar with.

For the record though, this isn't the first time Wendy has hosted her show without her ring on. However, this might mean something different given they confirmed that she is filing for divorce.

"Thank you to everyone for respecting the family's privacy during this time", the personal representative for Williams told Page Six in a statement.
