As we learn more and more about the sad case of talk show host Wendy Williams’ 23-year Hollywood marriage ending, we begin to understand why she had to take the action she did.
Williams filed for divorce from her husband of more than two decades, Kevin Hunter, in early April.
Reports were swirling that she took the action because Hunter’s mistress had recently given birth to their love child. But, now we are learning that there may have been a more nefarious reason for leaving the marriage.
Numerous outlets are reporting that police were called out to the Williams/Hunter home in January after an anonymous tipster reported that Hunter had been attempting to poison Williams.
According to Fox News, “The call was made by someone who is said to have worked for Williams’ production company, Debmar-Mercury.
“The caller alleged Hunter, who was still an executive producer on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ at the time, was slipping something harmful to the talk show host and wanted authorities to check in on her.
“The caller refused to give contact information.”
When officers arrived at the home to perform the welfare check, they were met by Williams’ husband who, initially, refused to let them enter.
Eventually, Hunter relented and escorted officers to the couple’s bedroom where they found Williams in bed with “the blanket covering from neck to toe.”
The officers attempted to question Williams alone about her status, but Hunter adamantly refused to leave the room.
“Williams told the officers she was recovering from a broken shoulder and joked she’s 'very popular' when asked if there was truth to the tipster’s claim. When asked again, Williams became tearful and denied any wrongdoing by Hunter," the report states.
Since the divorce papers were filed, Hunter has been fired from his job as a producer on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ and as her personal manager.
Williams also reportedly had the $215,000 Ferrari that Hunter gave his ‘baby mama’ towed away from the mistress’ home.
It looks as though this fight is heating up and is sure to have some explosive moments in the future.
Let’s hope that none of the ’health issues’ Wendy's been suffering from is the result off anything sinister on the part of her ousted husband.
Please pray for all involved, especially for the couple’s 18-year-old son, Kevin Jr.
