The real reason Wendy Williams is getting a divorce

The real reason Wendy Williams is getting a divorce

She also said "nobody knew" about her situation except Hunter. In Williams' 2001 memoir, Wendy's Got Heat, she shared that Hunter had an affair shortly after she gave birth to Kevin Jr. Insiders tell the site that Wendy chose to file after he told her about his actions weeks ago.

"That's a red flag to me, hello!" she said. She opened up to fans back in March that she had been staying in a sober living facility to help get ahead of her addiction problems.

According to The Blast, the daytime talk show host only filed for divorce after her husband Kevin Hunter made the bold decision to "come clean on everything". She now stands to lose a lot of money in the divorce.

"We wish her the best", Sara Gilbert concluded.

"Thank you to everyone for respecting the family's privacy during this time".

Meanwhile, news of the split comes after Williams recently revealed she has been living in a sober house in order to overcome her addictions, and Hunter revealed at the time that the whole family was "doing well".

The divorce document states a "breakdown" of the marriage over a period of at least 6 months, requesting the court to determine an "appropriate amount" of child support to their over 18 years-old son, Kelvin.

According to, Kevin was served with papers at Thursday's taping of "The Wendy Williams Show", where he is an executive producer.

Hunter and Hudson have been alleged to be in a relationship for over 10 years. "We respect their privacy regarding personal matters", a statement issued by a representative for her show read.

No reason has been given for the split, but infidelity rumours have plagued the pair for several years, although Williams told her viewers earlier this year that she was "very much in love" with Hunter, and would not be divorcing him.

Hunter did not return PEOPLE's request for comment.
