UPDATE: Wendy Williams' marriage to Kevin Hunter is officially over. According to documents obtained by E! News, a judge signed off on the finalization of their divorce this week.
As part of the settlement agreement, neither will receive alimony. Wendy will remain the sole owner of their previously shared production company, Wendy Inc., and Kevin's remaining shares will go to her. They've agreed to evenly split the profits from their New Jersey home once it sells. Additionally, they'll each be responsible for paying their own legal fees.
Wendy Williams is calling it quits with Kevin Hunter.
The 54-year-old talk show host filed for divorce from her husband, executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show and father of 18-year-old son Kevin Jr., on Wednesday after 21 years of marriage, E! News confirmed on Thursday. Hunter was served with the divorce papers Thursday morning at the studio where The Wendy Williams Show is taped, a source told E! News.
"There exists irreconcilable differences between the parties which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of six months and which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved as there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation," Williams' divorce filing states.
"Thank you to everyone for respecting the family's privacy during this time," Williams' personal rep said in a statement to E! News. "Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together."
The breakup comes amid rumors that Hunter, 46, has been cheating on the Wendy Williams Show host and fathered a child with his alleged mistress. Neither they nor Williams have spoken about the reports.
