Wendy Williams' Son Arrested for Assault for Punching His Dad

Wendy Williams' son has been arrested for simple assault after a physical altercation with his father near the family's home in New Jersey, RadarOnline.com can confirm.

He said in a statement: "I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologise to my wife, my family and her fantastic fans". In the store parking lot, they got into an argument over Kevin's demand for spousal support. In her 2004 memoir Wendy's Got the Heat, Williams talked about catching Hunter having an affair just months after Kevin Jr. was born in 2001.

Hunter didn't release specific details about his "new foundation", though he did say that the substance abuse resource hotline he and Williams launched in March will be going on a "brief hiatus".

Hunter commented on the situation, telling TMZ, "I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear", he said.

Things got nasty - Hunter put his son in a headlock and Kevin Jr. punched his father in the nose to break free, according to the story.


Hunter had been a part of the show since 2008, and while there were no issues with Hunter and his job duties, TMZ learned that his presence on set was causing Wendy Williams a lot of stress due to issues in their relationship.

Wendy Williams' son, Kevin Jr., was arrested after punching his father, Kevin Hunter, on Wednesday (May 22), according to TMZ. Kevin Sr. told authorities that he would not pursue any legal action against his son.

Williams is divorcing her husband after being married for almost two decades. "I have a commitment to me and my son to come out of here better, stronger and faster than ever", she said.

A spokeswoman for the Ethics County Prosecutor's Office in New Jersey confirmed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that an incident took place at 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday night in West Orange. However, he was removed from the talk show after she served him with divorce documents. However, Kevin Hunter Jr. was unaware that his father was there, although things between them have been copacetic since the divorce.
