Kevin Hunter, Wendy Williams’ ex-husband, has filed legal papers demanding that the former talk show host resume making monthly payments to him.
Given that they both agreed to cover their own attorney fees and not pay alimony, it’s unclear what exactly Kevin is supposed to receive from Wendy.
However, in court documents obtained by The Sun, Kevin states that he has not been receiving his monthly installments for some time and is requesting that a judge order his ex to pay up.
Wendy’s lawyers claim she hasn’t had a steady source of income since losing her $10 million annual salary on “The Wendy Williams Show” in October of last year.
The 58-year-old, who earned a reported $55,000 per episode before bonuses, had her salary slashed the moment she stopped appearing on the show due to serious health issues.
“If, for any reason, [Plaintiffs] contract with Talk WW is not renewed and/or is otherwise suspended, canceled, or terminated and [Plaintiff] does not have any other television show being aired and paying her an equivalent salary, [Defendant] understands and agrees that all Severance Payment shall be subject to either termination or modification,” the court docs filed by Wendy’s attorneys said.
Given that she doesn’t have any other shows on television and isn’t earning as much as she used to, it would be unreasonable for her to continue paying Kevin.
Wendy was also embroiled in a legal battle with Wells Fargo, whom she accused of freezing her account before accusing her of having dementia.
