Her 18-year-old son, Kevin Hunter, Jr., was arrested Wednesday in a New Jersey parking lot for allegedly assaulting his father.

He said in a statement: "I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologise to my wife, my family and her fantastic fans".

Citing sources, TMZ reports that the altercation turned physical when Kevin Sr. allegedly put his son in a headlock.

Wendy Williams filed for divorce from her husband a few weeks back after rumors of Kevin Hunter Sr.'s infidelity reached an all-time high. While in the headlock, Kevin Jr. punched his father in the nose, causing him to release his grip. On April 13, Aveon Falstar, a former artist of Hunter, alleged on the podcast "unWineWithTashaK" that he had a sexual relationship with him throughout a year ago.

Kevin Hunter Sr. has since spoken with TMZ about the incident, sharing, "I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally".

Hunter had been a part of the show since 2008, and while there were no issues with Hunter and his job duties, TMZ learned that his presence on set was causing Wendy Williams a lot of stress due to issues in their relationship. "Things are not always how they appear", Kevin concluded.


Sources close to the situation tell The Blast that the father and son were having an argument about the divorce when the teen called Hunter out for the alleged mistreatment of the TV personality. Williams at first fiercely defended her marriage on her talk show, defiantly showing of her sizable wedding ring.

"Wendy Williams has been, and remains, committed to helping others in the struggles of life", she said, reading a prepared statement.

The two later went to the store right after midnight but reportedly got into it over Kevin Hunter's demand for spousal support.

Once inside, Kevin Jr. found realized that his dad was also there.

HollywoodLife reached out to a representative for Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter, as well as police when the news first broke on May 22.
