Wendy Williams is known as the hot topics lady, but since her hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show she has become a hot topic herself. The gossip queen has been taking a break from daytime TV due to reported complications with Graves’ disease as well as a fractured shoulder. However, it’s been reported that more than her health is in jeopardy.
According to recent reports from Bossip, Williams has been suffering physical abuse at the hands of her husband, Kevin Hunter. His own mother, Pearlet Hunter, claims to have witnessed her son abusing Williams.
“I saw Kevin choking out Wendy!,” she told the National Enquirer. “Another time, I witnessed him kicking the s–t out of her and pushing her down the stairs.”
These accusations come after it was alleged that Hunter has a longtime mistress who is pregnant with their child. The mistress allegedly lives down the street from the couple. Once LoveBScott.com published a report with these claims, a cease and desist was sent to them along with denial that Williams and Hunter are facing marital hardships.
“Mrs. Wendy Williams-Hunter and Mr. Kevin Hunter categorically deny each and every allegation made by your “sources”, even if not specifically enumerated herein,” the statement read.
As for her health, she is taking an extended break from taping The Wendy Williams Show. Beginning the week of January 28th, there will be a variety of guest hosts taking over for Williams.
“As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend,” read a statement via her Instagram page. “Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment. Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital. Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.”
