Wendy Williams is ending her almost 22-year marriage to Kevin Hunter.

When the Wendy Williams Show star returned to her show she addressed the rumors. Previous reports have have stated that Hunter's allegedly abusive behavior ultimately led to the unraveling that prompted Williams to relapse. In addition to requesting that Williams and Hunter's marriage be dissolved, the filing states, "There exists irreconcilable differences between the parties, which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of six (6) months and which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved as there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation".

The couple have one son.

"My husband was extremely concerned", she said.


"She would hide in the bathroom and tell me to knock on the door when he left the office so she wouldn't have to see him", an intern from Williams' former radio show told The Post, adding that it was common for Hunter to pull Williams into a private room and for staff to hear them fighting. "I'm still very much in love with my husband".

The 54-year-old's hairstylist and makeup artist, Robyn Michele and Merrell Hollis, shared a video of them helping Wendy get ready for today's show, and when the camera was put on her, she went out of her way to show fans that she was wearing her beloved flower ring instead.

"There is a discussion about what happens now - everyone is asking, 'How can they possibly stay together?' Wendy still loves Kevin, but her health is at stake", a source told Page Six. After the two married in November 1997, they welcomed their child Kevin Hunter Jr. in 2000.

However, it's possible that Williams had a change of heart because there is a report that she just filed for divorce. She noted her wedding ring and said, "It ain't going anywhere". The talk show host is done and moving on with her life after cheating allegations have plagued her marriage for years. Months later Wendy Williams has filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter.
