AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams' relationship with estranged husband Kevin Hunter is getting messier. The tension appears not to only exist between the two as a new report suggests that her husband and son Kevin Jr. were involved in a physical altercation amid the ongoing divorce.
Kevin and Kevin Jr. got into a fight on early Wednesday morning, May 22, according to TMZ. The alleged brawl is said to take place at a store parking lot near the family home in New Jersey and authorities were called due to the fight.
Sources close to the family tell the news outlet that Wendy dropped the 18-year-old off at her house, not knowing Hunter was there. The TV personally reportedly planned to return shortly, but Kevin Jr. and Hunter ended up making a quick trip to a nearby store in the meantime and that was when they got into an argument at the parking lot.
According to the report, the dad and son duo were arguing over Kevin's demand for spousal support. Kevin Sr. then allegedly claimed that Wendy attempted to "brainwash" their son, and things got escalated when the former put his son in a headlock in an attempt to calm him down. Kevin Jr. is said to be fighting back and punching his father right in the face.
Rumor has it, the tension between the two started on Tuesday night after Kevin told Kevin Jr. that he needed to work hard on his own and without Wendy's handouts.
Kevin Jr. was arrested for the incident, though his dad revealed that he didn't plan to press charges against his son. "I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear," Kevin Sr. tells TMZ. However, police proceed with an investigation into the "incident" despite Kevin's decision not to pursue the matter legally.
Williams filed for divorce from Hunter, her husband for over 20 years, back in April. The split came after rumors of him fathering a child with his mistress. Earlier this month, Kevin filed for his response to Wendy's divorce petition. He demanded that the TV host pays him both spousal and child support in addition to his legal fees.
