Who is Kevin Hunter?
Kevin Hunter is a television producer born on 17 September 1972 in Ontario, Canada. As of 2021, he is 49 years old.
Hunter was an executive producer on his ex-wife’s TV show, The Wendy Williams Show, from 2011 to 2016. He was also nominated for a ‘Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show,’ alongside his ex-partner and her Wendy Show production team. In addition to that, Hunter has served as an executive producer in the TV series The Wendy Williams Experience (2006). He also worked as Wendy’s manager for several years.
Besides, he was also the executive producer of the TV series documentary Wendy Williams Project (2013) and Death by Gossip with Wendy Williams (2015).
In 2014, Hunter and his son, Kevin Hunter Jr., established the Hunter Foundation, an NGO. The NGO provides rehabilitation programs to drug addicts as a form of treatment.
Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter
Williams was first married to Bert Girigorie in 1995, but the relationship was short-lived as they divorced just six months later.
Following that, Williams met Hunter at an event hosted by her. After dating for two years, Hunter and Williams eventually got married in 1997. Williams and Hunter were married for more than two decades.
However, Hunter cheated on Williams while she was pregnant with their child. She had appointed a private investigator to track Hunter, through which she discovered about his affairs.
They welcomed their son Kevin Hunter Jr. on 18 August 2000. Despite his infidelities, Williams remained by Hunter’s side for the sake of their son Kevin Hunter Jr. In a January 2021 interview with Insider, Williams said, “I don’t regret meeting Kevin. I don’t regret falling in love. I don’t regret staying with him for all 25 years — 21 of them married.”
In April 2019, Williams announced her divorce from Hunter after 22 years of marriage. Nevertheless, Williams told Insider in 2021 that she had been planning her divorce for over two decades because of his infidelity issues. When asked when she believed her happiness had been jeopardized in her two-decade-long marriage, Williams stated, “the second year because that’s when I finally got successfully pregnant with [my son] young Kevin and gave birth to him.”
Later, Hunter spoke up about the cheating scandal, saying he was not proud of his actions.
The couple’s divorce was completed by a judge on 23 January 2020, ending their 22-year marriage. The former couple claimed their split on irreconcilable differences and renounced spousal support.
In addition, the couple agreed to sell their mansion in Livingston, New Jersey, for a profit of 50% each. As a result, Williams was able to maintain their Florida property, while Hunter received the earnings of a residence he sold in Morristown, New Jersey.
The pair formerly shared a production firm, and the records (by TMZ) revealed Hunter was required to sell his half to Williams as a lump payment plus a severance payout, albeit the details remain private.
As of 2021, they are still in contact nearly two years after filing for divorce. Wendy Williams: The Movie, as well as Wendy Williams: What a Mess, a documentary that was released in 2021, both include information about their relationship.
Hunter is engaged to his fiancee Sharina Hudson after proposing to her with an $80,000 diamond ring in 2020. They also share a daughter, Journey, born in March 2019, during the same time Williams asked for a divorce from her Hunter.
As of 2021, Hunter and Hudson, along with their daughter, live together in the wealthy group of Coral Springs. Additionally, Hunter opened a barbershop called Head Hunters in nearby Boca Raton, Florida.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Hunter has a net worth of $10 million as of December 2021. His primary source of earnings is through his career as a television executive.
