People are trying to understand what made Wendy Williams file for divorce after stating she wouldn’t. Over the past month, people have questioned whether Wendy was aware that her husband most likely had a girlfriend and baby or if she was in denial. Some even asked if Wendy was involved in a plural relationship.
Wendy Williams’ spokesperson released a statement to Hollywood Life. It reads as follows.
“Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time. Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together. No additional comment will be provided at this time.”
According to Hollywood Life, Kevin Hunter’s divorce papers were served while he was in the studio working on the Wendy Williams Show. Since they work together, it’s unclear what divorce will mean to the future of the show.
Wendy surprised viewers when she appeared on her show without her wedding ring. Though she had been the subject of tabloid gossip and rumors, it wasn’t until she took the ring off that people suspected she was finally ready to end the marriage.
