Wendy Williams, a woman who has made a living by airing other people's dirty laundry each morning in her Hot Topics segment, is now living every talk show host's worst nightmare:
The star's very own personal life has become one of the hotter topics on the Internet.
And all for very negative and quite unfortunate reasons.
As previously reported, Wendy's estranged husband and 18-year old son (Kevin Sr. and Kevin Jr., respectively) got into some kind of altercation just around 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
According to TMZ, which broke this story, Kevin Sr. placed his son in a headlock and the son responded by hitting his dad in the face.
Shortly after this news broke, Kevin Sr. released a statement that read as follows:
"I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear."
Despite his father taking this stance, a spokeswoman for the Ethics County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey now reports that Kevin Jr. has been arrested.
Per this unnamed indivudla, Kevin Hunter Jr. was charged with simple assault last night.
He was processed and released by West Orange Police Department the same evening and was not taken to county jail.
Based on the original article about this subject, Kevin Jr. was dropped off at the family home yesterday, unaware his dad was in the house.
But the two got along well enough at the time to head out to a nearby store -- and this is where things took an ugly turn.
Kevin Sr. allegedly urged his son to forge his own path and get out from underneath his mother's famous shadow, while Kevin Jr. may have responded by calling out his dad as a hypocrite because Kevin Sr. is seeking alimony from Wendy.
Insiders say that Kevin Sr. put his son in the aforementioned headlock to try and calm him down, only for Kevin Jr. to respond with the fateful punch that led to his arrest.
Williams has not yet spoken on this incident.
But she filed for divorce from Kevin Sr. in April after news that he fathered a child with his mistress spread like some sort of wildfire around the Internet.
Rumors of Kevin Sr.'s infidelity has been a not-very-well-kept-secret for years, but Williams had been able to ignore it (in public, at least) until this baby news made that impossible.
She allegedly relapsed and got so drunk the day the child was born that she had to be taken to the hospital.
Hunter eventually broke his silence on the split in a statement, addressing the cheating scandal and admitting he was “not proud of my recent actions.”
Williams has also fired Kevin Sr. as a producer on her successful talk show.
And she actually talked about both the divorce and her teenage son on a recent episode.
Sharing a story about how she recently went out with Blac Chyna and Kevin Jr. to a nightclub, Williams broke down in tears at the mention of her only child.
