After persistent cheating rumors and breakup buzz, it’s over for Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter.
The talk show host is divorcing her husband of nearly 22 years, Williams’ attorney confirmed to Page Six on Thursday. A source told us Williams, who filed in Essex County, NJ, served Hunter with divorce papers at 6:30 a.m.
According to court documents, obtained by Page Six, Williams and Hunter are splitting because of “irreconcilable differences.” Williams, who resides in Livingston, NJ, is seeking to establish an “appropriate amount of child support” as well as “other further relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.”
“Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time,” the personal representative for Williams told Page Six in a statement. “Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together.”
Earlier this month, Page Six exclusively reported that Williams and Hunter were looking into separating.
The split comes amid renewed rumors that Hunter has been cheating on Williams, 54, with a woman named Sharina Hudson, who gave birth to a baby suspected to be Hunter’s last month.
The divorce news comes after Williams notably flaunted her lack of a wedding band early Thursday on her hairstylist’s and makeup artist’s social media.
Rumors of infidelity have plagued the couple for a few years, though Williams never confirmed them. She vaguely addressed her marital woes on her show earlier this year, cryptically telling viewers after she returned from a two-month hiatus that her wedding ring would always stay on her hand.
