As for Kevin, People magazine reports that he is more than apologetic and is finally coming clean about everything.
In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, Hunter opened up about Williams’ filing — which a source told PEOPLE came after he admitted to cheating on her and fathering a child in an extramarital relationship.
“I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans,” Hunter said. “I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.”
The Wendy Williams Shows producer, who shares 19-year-old son Kevin Jr. with Williams, went on to explain that he too would be working on his sobriety and would always stand by Williams.
“28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally,” he 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,” Hunter added. “Thank you.”
