Wendy Williams Confirms Estraged Husband Welcomed A Love Child With Another Woman
Talk show host, Wendy Williams after months of speculation has finally confirmed that her estranged husband, Kevin Hunter fathered a child with another woman.
The controversial host of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ revealed this yesterday, August 27 during an interview with The New York Times Magazine.
The 55-year-old confirmed that 47-year-old Hunter whom she was married to for 21 years had a daughter with massage therapist Sharina Hudson. Speaking about her split from Hunter whom she filed for divorce from earlier this year (April), she said:
“Kevin had a major indiscretion that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life. An indiscretion that I will not deal with. I never thought that I would be in this position. I’m a very forgiving person, but there’s one thing that I could never be a part of, and that one thing happened.”
When asked what that ‘one thing’ is, Williams exclaimed: ‘Kevin has a daughter.’ The pair share a 19-year-old son which is one of the reasons Williams will have Hunter in her life.
“He will always be my family, because we have a 19-year-old son, and we were together for 25 years and married for 21. But there was no vacillating. I’m out.”
On moving into a sober house when her relationship with Hunter was about to break, Wiliams explains:
“I knew what was about to happen, and I was like, Let me go someplace where you’re not allowed to have the whole bottle of wine. Cocaine has been off my map for years. I don’t take pills. I wasn’t doing anything off the wagon. My husband was about to have a baby, and I knew that I was about to divorce. I knew that there would be headlines. I had to process it so that once I came out, I came out on top.”
Although Hunter has never publicly addressed the rumours, he alluded to his infidelity in a statement released shortly after the April divorce filings, stating that he was “not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans.”
