Two months after filing for divorce, Wendy Williams appears to have moved on as she shares a photo of herself holding hands with a mystery man who, according to her, is young enough to be her child.


The talk show host is out here living her life like it’s golden since initiating divorce proceedings with her husband and manager of over two decades, Kevin Hunter Sr.


Wendy, 54, took to Instagram on Monday with the photo of her sitting at a pool and wrapping her arms around the leg of a man whose face is not revealed. The mystery man also placed a hand over Wendy’s in the affectionate snap.



The image caption read:

“Last night was the most beautiful sunset in Sherman Oaks with special people. Thank you, California! You've won me over! I'll be back for the Hip Hop Festival in August!”

The mom-of-one made sure to add in a couple of hashtags that she was living her “new life” with a “very sexy man” and that she’s “old enough to be [his] mother.”

The photo has since garnered tons of reactions, most of which are basically “Thumbs-Up” for Wendy and warnings for her to be careful with men this time around.

Although some in the comments section speculated that the mystery man might be the “Wendy Williams Show” in-house Disc Jockey, DJ Boof, TMZ claims otherwise.

Wendy joked a few months ago about going on a date with Boof, but according to the celebrity news site, the mystery man is someone Wendy met recently.


The former radio queen reportedly met her new man over the weekend while hanging out with Blac Chyna in California. She’s also said to be planning to take the young man, who is in his late ‘20s, back to New York where she has her show.

No name has been pegged to the mystery man, but TMZ seems to have caught a glimpse of him on Sunday night when their photographer spoke with Wendy outside a waffle place in LA.



Wendy filed for divorce from Kevin Sr. in April after it was revealed that he fathered a love-child with his alleged longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson.

The TV diva has since moved on, letting fans know she now lives alone in New York and is dating “pretty often.” She’s also been hanging out more often with friends and her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., who seems to be very protective of Wendy.

Last month, Kevin Jr. got into a physical altercation with his father allegedly over an argument about the divorce. The 18-year-old was arrested and released hours later as Kevin Sr. revealed he wouldn’t be pursuing the matter legally.
