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. Her attorney previously announced the news to Page Six. 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.
"Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years. We respect their privacy regarding personal matters. As always, we remain committed to bringing an entertaining and topical show to our viewers," a spokesperson for The Wendy Williams Show said in a statement to E! News.
Williams has alternated between wearing it and going ringless in recent weeks.
Despite the cheating rumors, many fans believed Wendy would stay with her husband, especially after she addressed the status of her relationship in early March.
