Charlamagne Breaks His Silence On Wendy Williams Drama
Charlamagne Tha God is finally giving the scoop on what severed his business relationship and friendship with Wendy Williams in his new book, “Black Privilege.”
Many moons ago, Charlamagne was Wendy’s on-air sidekick and he credits her for teaching him everything he needed to know about radio during their 3-year ride.
But, after he got fired…things went left over a business deal.
Wendy’s husband, Kevin Hunter, represented Charlamagne as he searched for a new gig in Philadelphia. But, Kevin was demanding $350,000 a year, though the initial offer was just $70,000.
He was always extremely aggressive in trying to get more money out of situations. He’d yell at and often threaten people till he got what he wanted.
I can’t lie: It’s worked for him with Wendy. But it wasn’t how I wanted to do business.
When Charlamagne told Kevin he would approach the company alone and accept the $75,000, he snapped.
Wendy’s husband fired off a text that read, “I’m not f**king with you no more. You did some foul sh*t. Lose my number!”
“As for Wendy, she is the ultimate ride-or-die chick. I know she feels she has to have her husband’s back and I have to respect that,” he wrote.
In his book, Charlamagne Tha God also noted how “cruel” Wendy and Kevin were to some of their staff.
One thing I learned not to do from watching her was to treat the people who work for you poorly.
Wendy and Kev could be very cruel to the people who worked under them.
I wonder what Wendy will say about this in her Hot Topics segment….
