Wendy Williams' Estranged Husband Says She's Ruining Relationship With Son

Wendy Williams' and Kevin Hunter's divorce drama doesn't look like it's coming to an end anytime soon.
According to TMZ, the talk show's estranged husband is now claiming she's trying to drive a wedge between him and their son Kevin Jr.
Sources with direct knowledge of the divorce told the entertainment news site Kevin Sr. has been accusing Wendy of "poisoning his relationship with their son, getting in his ear and talking smack about him." Kevin Sr. reportedly made several attempts in recent weeks "to spend time with his son to repair the relationship, but he got the cold shoulder." The insiders claim Kevin's sent his son a number of lengthy texts only to get one-word replies back from him.
Kevin's alleged feelings about Wendy ruining his relationship with their son comes days after Kevin Jr. was arrested for assault after getting into a fight with his dad in a store parking lot. As previously reported, earlier this week, sources close to Kevin Sr. told TMZ the fight went down after Kevin told his son he needed to stop taking his mothers handouts and work hard on his own to make something of himself. However, other sources told the site they into an argument over Kevin's demand for spousal support. Kevin Sr. reportedly claimed Wendy was "brainwashing" Kevin Jr., turning their son against him, and following that claim their verbal dispute turned physical when Kevin Sr. allegedly put his son in a headlock and Kevin Jr. subsequently punched his father in the nose to break the hold.
Kevin Jr. was later arrested. Following the incident, his father told TMZ, "I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear."
Despite his arrest, Kevin appeared to be in good spirits on Thursday (May 23) as he accompanied his mom to a gala event in Washington, D.C.
As fans know, Wendy filed for divorce from Kevin last month — a decision that was reportedly sparked by his alleged longtime mistress having his child in March. Shortly after Wendy's filing, Kevin issued his wife an apology for his alleged infidelity, saying, "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."
Earlier this month, Kevin filed a response to Wendy's divorce petition, in the form of a request for spousal and child support. In legal documents, obtained by TMX, Wendy's soon-to-be ex-husband is seeking alimony and asking that she foot the bill for their 18-year-old son's college expenses.
