Wendy Williams’ son, Kevin Hunter Jr., reportedly got into a fight with his father, Kevin Hunter Sr., at the parking lot of a store in New Jersey, close of the family house.


According to TMZ, Wendy took her 18-year-old son to their house and left so that he could pick up something. Even though he was surprised for seeing his father there, things were okay.

Soon later, the pair went to a nearby store, and that’s where the incident happened. Kevin Sr. and Jr. allegedly started arguing about the former’s request for spousal support.


The 46-year-old man supposedly said that Wendy was “brainwashing” Kevin Jr. to be on her side. At that point, things escalated, and Kevin Sr. reportedly put his son in a headlock, but Jr. broke it by punching his father in the nose.

The police soon arrived at the scene and arrested Kevin Jr. for assault. Shortly after the incident, Wendy’s estranged husband told TMZ, “I love my son very much, and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear."

TMZ added that Kevin Sr. has been urging his son to start his own path to success instead of relying on Wendy’s handouts for a while and that it might have been one of the reasons their fight began. At the moment, Wendy has not publicly said anything about the incident.


Recently, Wendy filed for divorce from her husband, ending their marriage of close to 23 years. She cited irreconcilable differences in her court documents yet the real alleged reason was her husband’s fathering a child with his longtime mistress.

She even shaded the woman recently with a comment on her show about women who have no respect for marriage. “There is a hot place in hell for you!” she says.
