Wendy Williams Gets Rid Of Drug Abuse Charity She Started With Estranged Husband!
Wendy Williams continues to distance herself from her estranged husband, Kevin Hunter.
On Wednesday, while appearing on her popular daytime talk show, The Wendy Williams Show star announced she is ending her substance abuse charity — The Hunter Foundation — that she started with Hunter.
Despite dissolving the organization, she “remains committed to helping others in the struggles of life.”
After revealing she was seeking treatment and living in a sober house in March, the 54-year-old promoted the charity and the drug abuse hotline on her show.
However, according to The Blast, sources close to Hunter say he is concerned with the amount of jobs that will be cut.
Reportedly, several workers at the call center are recovering addicts themselves.
Per sources, Hunter believes Wendy is trying to distance herself from anything relating to drug addiction and substance abuse.
Though the hotline is still taking calls, staff were informed of the bad news on Tuesday.
As we reported in April, the television host filed for divorce from Hunter following reports he had a baby with his alleged side chick, Sharina Hudson.
Earlier this month, Williams seemingly took a jab at Hudson while discussing an interview where Ayesha Curry said her husband, NBA star Stephen Curry, is constantly fawned over by female fans.
She said on-air:
“For you lonely girls who can’t keep your hands off other people’s men, there is a hot place in hell for you!”
As we reported earlier this month, Hunter filed a response to Wendy’s divorce filing, and wants her to pay him spousal support, as well as child support for their son Kevin Jr.
Kevin Jr. is currently 18 years old, and will turn 19 in August. Per the legal docs, Kevin wants Wendy to pay for the teen’s college expenses.
These financial demands are in addition to the multi-million dollar payout Hunter will receive for quietly leaving The Wendy Williams Show.
While outlets initially reported that Wendy fired her soon-to-be ex from her show — on which he served as an executive producer — Bossip sources claimed his exit was more of a “mutual parting,” and that Hunter agreed to walk away with an eight-figure settlement.
Last month, Hunter issued an apology to E! News, saying he is “not proud of recent actions.” The statement read:
“28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally.
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.
No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”
