Wendy Williams’ private investigator confirmed that her husband’s mistress gave birth

Wendy Williams Files For Divorce After More Than 20 Years Of Marriage **FILE PHOTOS**

Wendy Williams finally filed for divorce from her husband of 20 years, Kevin Hunter. She announced the divorce last week, after months of drama and terrible shenanigans. The tea on their marriage was so tragic, with rumors of physical and emotional abuse and reports of Hunter fathering a child with his long-time mistress. Wendy finally addressed the divorce on her show yesterday:

Wendy Williams has broken her silence after filing for divorce from Kevin Hunter last week. The Wendy Williams Show star spoke out while hosting her show live Monday morning, reflecting on the motto of her Hot Topics segment, “Their business is our business.”

“It’s crazy ’cause now my business is your business,” Williams said with a laugh. “It’s kind of funny. Turnabouts a fair game, I get it. I’m moving out of the sober house in just a few days, you know,” she revealed. “It’ll be Wendy on her own….I have to tell you, you know, I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son. Believe me you, when you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day … this is my life in the sober house, it’s one of the best things, honestly, that could have ever happened to me.”

Williams, who has long been open about her past addiction to cocaine, said speaking candidly about her struggles on her show has been hugely beneficial.

“You wear a different mask when you’re out here,” she said. “Everybody has things in their life that they’re … not ready to share with the world. Addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head-on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life. I have a commitment to me and my son to come out of here better, stronger and faster than ever. And by the way, I will still commit. … I commit that the motto of this show will always be, ‘Their business is our business.’”

I’m sort of surprised to hear Wendy being so final about her divorce, and not showing anything but contentment for her next chapter. Maybe she really was done, maybe she had that aha-moment that her husband is toxic, but she sounds so DONE. According to a People Mag exclusive, Wendy’s aha-moment came when she found out Kevin had fathered a child with his mistress:

Wendy Williams decided to divorce her longtime manager Kevin Hunter once she learned that he’d allegedly cheated on her, fathering a child, a source tells PEOPLE. Last week, Williams, 54, filed for divorce from Hunter, ending more than two decades of marriage. And the source says she left Hunter after he admitted he had been unfaithful.

“The split is definitely due to Kevin’s ongoing infidelity and that his mistress recently welcomed their child,” the source says. “Wendy had hired a private investigator and confronted him. He confessed to everything three weeks ago.”

PEOPLE was unable to reach Hunter and his alleged mistress for comment. A rep for Williams could not be reached for comment.

“All of the recent drama put a huge strain on Wendy and caused her to struggle with her sobriety as she did everything she could to try and save their marriage,” the source says. Filing for divorce wasn’t an easy choice, either. “The decision to split was terribly hard for her, but she’s regaining her health. She decided she needed to finally put herself first,” the source says.

Ooh, she hired a private investigator? That’s interesting. It feels like a lot of the drama within Wendy’s marriage was already widely known in her circles though, right? People like Charlamagne Tha God were already talking openly about the abusive nature of Wendy & Kevin’s marriage for months and years before now. But I guess Wendy just wanted her own evidence, and a neutral third party to confirm the fact that Kevin Hunter had gotten his mistress pregnant. So messy. But I’m glad she’s out. I hope it’s for good.

    her bounce and smile is back!!!!

    Hope it works out for her. but they have been married for a long time and hubby is her manager, this mess hasn’t started yet. My guess is the Jedi mind games and trash hasn’t begin yet. There’s a reason why he abused her, control and money, and Hunter needs her for the latter.

    • Original T.C. says:

      Jedi mind trick #1 check: send a letter to People magazine apologizing and claiming your love.

      Wendy calling the repro man to grab the car you bought as a push present for your mistress: checkmate. LOL!

    I really hope she is in therapy. Spending 20 years in a toxic, abusive relationship has to have really messed up one’s self esteem and self worth.

  4. HK9 says:

    I’m glad she’s getting a divorce and getting on with her life. Divorce isn’t easy for anyone, especially people who are public figures who have to live this out in front of the whole world. And let’s not forget, it will live on the internet forever. I wish her and her son, the best.

  5. Original T.C. says:

    This has been a 10 year battle so she’s probably thought about it a million times over. As usual it takes abused women a long time to leave. First psychological then physically. Good for her!

  6. magdalene says:

    Maybe now she can show little empathy when she talks about other people’s issue and not gloat when people stumble in their private lives.

    • Toot says:

      Doubt it, but it would be nice.

    • Lady D says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Maybe she will be less cruel and ignorant to women she doesn’t like. Some of her comments, such as taking absolute delight in someone’s pain are vicious and I don’t think she’s a very nice person at all. I’m a little surprised she’s still on the air.

    • Tiffany says:

      That opening statement from Wendy reads like a self awareness I never really saw from her before. Maybe this is a change for the better.

  7. Lisabella says:

    This is exactly what Smokey Robinsons wife did – once he fathered a child outside of their marriage THAT was the deal breaker. Does anyone know how Kevin Jr. is coping with all this mess his father has brought to the family?

    • Tiffany says:

      He is 18/19, right? Something tells me he has known what was up. Kids are not stupid. He figured something was off with his parents all this time.

  8. stephanie says:

    Unless she is going to pay him off to go away, I have a feeling this will be one heck of a divorce.

    I find his statement public statement very rich and him referring to the “Hunter Family” and Wendy as his wife is disgusting considering he lives with and has a baby with another woman. He said he wants to right his wrongs. LOLOL. How can he right the ultimate wrong? Having a whole secret family with another woman he has been with for half the “marriage”.

    Wonder how Sharina feels about his statement. He treats everyone like crap.

    The last two shows have been infinitely better than any for the past 2 years, its like a big weight has lifted off her shoulders…like a 220 lb. weight addicted to luxury cars, high fashion and skanky women.
