After persistent cheating rumors and breakup gossips, it’s finally over for Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter.
The talk show host is divorcing her husband of nearly 22 years, Wendy’s attorney confirmed on Thursday.
Wendy, who filed in Essex County, NJ, served Hunter with divorce papers at 6:30 a.m.
“Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time,” the personal representative for Williams said in a statement. “Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together.”
Wendy notably flaunted her lack of a wedding band early Thursday on her hairstylist’s and makeup artist’s social media.
The split comes amid renewed rumors that Hunter has been cheating on Wendy, 54, with a woman named Sharina Hudson, who gave birth to a baby suspected to be Hunter’s last month.

“I’m still very much in love with my husband,” she said. “Don’t ask me about mine.” Pointing to her wedding ring, Williams added, “It ain’t going anywhere. Not in this lifetime.”
Infidelity hasn’t been the only rumor trailing Wendy and Hunter’s marriage, there were also rumors of Hunter’s abusive behavior.
“She would hide in the bathroom and tell me to knock on the door when he left the office so she wouldn’t have to see him,” an intern from Wendy’s former radio show told The Post, adding that it was common for Hunter to pull Wendy into a private room and for staff to hear them fighting.
“You’d hear slaps or some type of tussling going on,” said the intern.
