Last week, talk show Queen Wendy Williams filed to divorce her husband of 22 years Kevin Hunter.

The divorce comes in the midst of a lot of media speculation, surrounding their marriage.

For the first time Kevin Hunter, Wendy's husband and business parter, is speaking out.

Here are his words:

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.

I have dedicated most of my life to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter. But she's more than just a business to me. She's a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally.

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 filed for divorce from Hunter last Thursday after nearly 22 years of marriage. They share one son together, 18-year-old Kevin Hunter Jr.

The split came after Hunter’s alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth to a baby that’s said to be Hunter’s. Williams addressed the divorce during Monday’s episode of “The Wendy Williams Show.”

In addition to Williams’ eponymous talk show, Williams and Hunter also launched The Hunter Foundation together, which serves to help those struggling with addiction.
