While news broke today on April 11 about Wendy Williams, 54, filing for divorce from her husband of 21 years, Kevin Hunter, we now know that their marriage has been crumbling for at least six months, according to court documents obtained by HollywoodLife.

The 54-year-old's rep could not be reached for comment but a spokesperson for Wendy's show released a statement to People saying: "Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years". And that Hudson, who is reportedly in her early 30s, gave birth last month to Hunter's child.


What do you think of Sasha Banks cancelling her appearance on the Wendy William show?

In fact, an insider said to the outlet that she convinced him to stay. However, their marriage has been the center of many rumors lately and Williams has pushed back on them. The woman also claimed she saw Hunter be abusive toward Williams. Well I don't want normal, I want magic; cause that's the place that feels like home to me.


"I'm a better radio personality because I related now to the women who call up and talk about how their man cheated on them", she wrote. "Marriages are not easy".

Also, it was reported that Williams was allegedly rushed to the hospital last month after hearing of Hudson and Hunter's bundle of joy. "And don't ask me about mine until you see this gone", she said. "And it ain't going anywhere, not in this lifetime". Soon after that, she went public with the news that she has been living in a sober house to treat an unspecified addiction (though she had been public with her battles with cocaine). Hunter was reportedly served with papers that morning. After the two married in November 1997, they welcomed their child Kevin Hunter Jr. in 2000. However, this might mean something different given they confirmed that she is filing for divorce.
