HOW THEIR ASSETS WERE DIVIDED

The couple’s divorce which was first filed by Williams in April and finalized nine months later in New Jersey cited irreconcilable differences as the cause. And in dissolving their 21-year-marriage, the ex-couple agreed to forego alimony.

With regard to their assets, they settled to equally split the proceeds from the sale of their Livingston, New Jersey home which is currently being sold for $1.9 million.

At the time Williams filed for divorce, Hunter had a 50% share in Wendy Williams Productions, Inc. which runs her daytime program, “The Wendy Williams Show.” He was also its executive producer.

Shortly after his separation from Williams, Hunter and Hunter, Jr. got into a fight which resulted in the 19-year-old's arrest. Hunter accused Williams of causing their rift and driving a wedge between him and his son. The altercation was reportedly due to Hunter's demands for spousal support especially after he cheated on Williams with another woman who gave birth to their child last year.
