Wendy Williams’ family continues to unravel. Weeks after filing for divorce from her longtime husband, Kevin Hunter, a fight erupted between the men in her life.

On the morning of Wednesday, May 22, 2019, their son, Kevin Hunter Jr., got into an argument with his father, Kevin Sr., in a store parking lot in New Jersey. Kevin Jr. was upset that Kevin Sr. was asking a judge to award him spousal support.

The argument eventually turned violent after Kevin Sr. put his son in a headlock. While in the headlock, Kevin Jr. punched his father in the nose, causing him to release his grip.

When police arrived, they arrested Kevin Jr. and charged him with assault. Kevin Sr. told authorities that he would not pursue any legal action against his son.

Williams filed for divorce after Kevin Sr.’s alleged mistress, Shania Hudson, reportedly gave birth in March at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia.

Kevin Sr. reportedly has been involved in a relationship with Hudson for more than a decade. Their relationship allegedly caused Williams to relapse on drugs and led to a brief stay for the talk show host in a sober living house.

Because they were a married couple and also had a business relationship for more than two decades, their divorce will likely be costly for Williams, who was the primary breadwinner.
