Wendy Williams' Estranged Husband Kevin Hunter Breaks His Silence Amid Divorce

Wendy Williams’ estranged husband, Kevin Hunter, broke his silence on the former couple’s split on Tuesday, April 16, less than a week after the talk show host revealed she had filed for divorce.

“28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world,” Hunter, 46, said in a statement to Us Weekly. “I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally.”

He continued: “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs. No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”

Williams, 54, filed for divorce on Wednesday, April 10, and served Hunter papers the following morning. They were married for nearly 22 years and share 18-year-old son Kevin Jr. “Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time,” Williams’ personal rep told Us at the time. “Kevin is supportive of Wendy, and they are working through this process together.”

Most recently, reports surfaced that Hunter had been dating a woman named Sharina Hudson, who recently welcomed a daughter. Hunter has not commented on claims that he is the father.
