Wendy Williams’ ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, has been complaining he is broke. Now comes word he is selling his $1.2 million Florida home on the heels of a judge denying his request for continued alimony from the former talk show host.
On July 10, Radar reported that Hunter has a pending sale on the 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 3,425-square-foot home in Parkland, Florida, that he allegedly shared with Sharina Hudson, the woman he impregnated while married to Williams.
Hunter bought the house for $795,000 in 2020 after relocating to Florida after his divorce from Williams was finalized in January 2020.
What Might Have Led to the Home Sale
According to court documents, Hunter stopped receiving monthly alimony payments in February 2022. He went to court in December 2022 to ask the court to reinstate the payments.
In the filing, Hunter claimed he was facing foreclosure on his Florida home.
“I have fallen behind on most of my bills. I currently live in a community that requires payments to the homeowners association, and I’m behind on that bill. If the homeowners association fees are not paid, foreclosure will soon follow,” he said in the documents, BET reported.
He added, “My car insurance hasn’t been paid as a result of not receiving monthly severance payments. I’m behind on credit card payments because I have no money since the severance payments were suspended. My life has been greatly affected since the plaintiff stopped making payments under our settlement agreement.”
But Huner didn’t get the response he requested.
A judge overseeing divorce mediation proceedings responded to his request by saying that Williams, whose successful television talk show “The Wendy Williams Show” was canceled in June 2022, has no income. Williams had been earning $10 million a year, or $55,000 an episode, for the show, Radar reported.
Hunter was the executive producer of the show. He was fired from the show in 2019 when the couple separated.
Williams, who has a reported net worth of $20 million, is currently receiving treatment at a rehabilitation center. Her bank, Wells Fargo, has frozen her accounts to avoid financial exploitation.
A Mediation With No Resolution
The U.S. Sun reports it was told by an insider with knowledge of the proceedings that a mediation session was held in December 2022 to address Hunter’s claims that he had not received money that was owed as part of their agreed marital settlement. Hunter, who had been married to Williams for over two decades, had been receiving monthly payments per the terms of the divorce.
During the mediation, the judge told Hunter, “The reality is that there is no more money,” Sun reports. As reported by Finurah, other sources also substantiate the judge’s claims that Williams has no access to her money. Her former lawyer, Lashawn Thomas, claims that Williams is not even able to access her bank accounts since they are frozen by Wells Fargo.
Hunter’s team has requested that Wendy’s guardian and legal team provide access to her finances. However, Williams’ team has consistently denied Hunter access to these accounts.
The mediation ended with no resolution for Hunter, who vowed he would continue to fight to have his payments made.
“Kevin will have to file a motion for enforcement of litigant’s rights back again in court since they are no longer going to mediation- as the mediation didn’t resolve anything,” a source told The Sun.
