Wendy Williams’ inability to access her funds from her Wells Fargo account and her being losing her longtime daytime television talk show subsequently have affected her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, who was receiving alimony from Williams. Now he is facing delinquency on credit card payments and selling off his Florida home.
Hunter is facing a lawsuit from the bank responsible for processing his credit card, as he is unable to make payments since he is no longer receiving alimony pay. His payments stopped when the end came to Williams’ show, for which Hunter worked as an executive producer. The show ended June 17, 2022.
Hunter is trying to get cash payout by suing “The Wendy Williams Show” production team, but in the meantime he’s facing financial difficulties.
Hunter filed a request with the courts that he received payments from Williams, stating that he hasn’t received alimony from Williams since February of the previous year. Williams’ lawyer argued that Hunter isn’t eligible for alimony, as per their divorce agreement due to the cancellation of her talk show. In February 2023, a judge denied his demands.
Credit Card Companies Want Their Money
UBS Bank USA has filed a lawsuit against the financially distressed Hunter, alleging that he breached an agreement by failing to make recent payments as of March 28, 2023, amounting to $20,176.83. The bank is seeking a default judgment against Hunter.
The bank has demanded that Hunter be mandated to pay the full outstanding amount, along with attorney fees. The lawsuit stated that Hunter was officially notified of his default on both January 23 and March 1, 2023.
“Defendant has failed to make the minimum monthly payments by the payment due date, as required by the Cardmember Agreement,” the suit reads, Radar cited.
In response to the lawsuit, Hunter had requested an expedited hearing, which was denied by the judge. The court has indicated that the matter will be addressed on a future date, Radar reported on Oct. 11.
“I’m behind on credit card payments because I have no money since the severance payments were suspended,” Hunter said. “My life has been greatly affected since the plaintiff stopped making payments under our settlement agreement.”
Hunter, a Visa cardholder with the bank since 2014, has been diligent in paying his bills. However, he encountered financial difficulties in early 2022, coinciding with Wendy Williams’ legal battle against Wells Fargo, where her accounts were frozen.
Bye, Bye Home
In July 2023, Hunter started the process of selling his $1.2 million Florida home in an effort to settle his financial obligations.
Hunter was compelled to list his property for sale: his five-bedroom, five-bathroom, 3,425 square-foot home in Parkland, Florida. According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, Hunter sold the home for $1.25 million.
Hunter filed a civil lawsuit in New York City federal court in March 2022, claiming Debmar-Mercury wrongfully fired him “on the basis of his marital status” to Williams. In September 2023, a judge ruled the suit may proceed.
