She allegedly hired the muscle a week before serving her estranged husband with divorce papers.
The divorce drama for Wendy Williams continues as it's now being reported that she is tightening her security measures on the set of her show until her estranged husband, Kevin Hunter, gets the boot. Hunter is one of the executive producers of The Wendy Williams Show, but now TMZ reports that the host has hired three additional bodyguards to keep watch over her.
The personal security team was allegedly hired a week before she dropped divorce papers in Hunter's lap. The publication claims that Williams and Hunter's arguments have become heated, even claiming that a recent fight caused Hunter to be restrained. Although there are rumors that Hunter fathered a child with another woman, neither Williams nor Hunter have confirmed the reports. However, just a few days ago Hunter issued a statement apologizing for his actions.
"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," Hunter said. "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.”
