Wendy Williams' Estranged Husband Calls Cops to New Jersey Mansion After She Files for Divorce
The same day he was removed as executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show, Kevin Hunter called police to the estranged couple's home
On Thursday, Hunter called local law enforcement and asked that they respond to his and Williams’ New Jersey mansion to address members of the media, who were waiting outside.
“The resident says there’s a news van outside his home that won’t leave him alone,” the emergency dispatcher states in dispatched audio obtained by The Blast, referencing Hunter.
An officer then replies, “We spoke with the caller as well as the press — both sides — and explained that they can be in the road and on the sidewalk, but not on their property.”
His call to cops came the same day that a spokesperson for The Wendy Williams Show confirmed to PEOPLE that Hunter will no longer executive produce Williams’ daily talk show. Hunter has held an executive producer title for the showsince it debuted in 2008 and the two also share a production company, Wendy Williams Productions.
“Kevin Hunter is no longer an Executive Producer on the Wendy Williams Show. Debmar-Mercury wishes him well in his future endeavors,” said the spokesperson.
Williams, 54, filed for divorce from Hunter last week after 21 years of marriage. Her personal rep issued a statement to PEOPLE, saying, “Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time. Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together. No additional comment will be provided at this time.”
The divorce comes amid the news that Hunter allegedly fathered a child with his mistress.
On Tuesday, Hunter broke his silence on the split in a statement to PEOPLE, admitting he was “not proud of my recent actions” and apologizing “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,” he said. “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.”
Williams and Hunter, 46, wed on Nov. 30, 1997, and share son Kevin Jr., 19.
On Monday’s broadcast of The Wendy Williams Show, Williams — who revealed last month that she has been living in a sober house — said she would “moving out of the sober house in just a few days” and alluded to her divorce, saying she has a “whole new life” planned for her and her son.
