Kevin Hunter Accused Of Poisoning Wendy Williams, Police Conduct Welfare Check
Earlier this year, police performed a welfare check at Wendy Williams’ home after receiving a tip that her husband, Kevin Hunter, was poisoning her.
Now that Wendy Williams has filed for divorce and the force field around her marriage has been deactivated all of the tea is spilling.
In January, when the talk show host was nursing her alleged fractured shoulder, police received a tip accusing Kevin Hunter of poisoning his now-estranged wife.
Police took action after the call and went out to the residence to conduct a welfare check.
Here’s the scoop via TMZ:
The report says 2 officers went to Williams’ New Jersey residence and were greeted by Hunter, who was hesitant to let them in for the welfare check because he said Wendy was sick and recovering from a health problem.
Cops say they explained to Hunter they were required to speak with Williams due to the anonymous call. When he allowed them to enter, they found Williams in bed “with the blanket covering from neck to toe.”
According to the report … one of the officers asked Kevin to leave the bedroom so they could talk to Wendy alone, but he didn’t want to leave her side. As for the health problem she had — Wendy told cops she was recovering from a broken shoulder.
An officer eventually asked her if there was any truth to the anonymous tip she was being poisoned, and Wendy responded with something like … “Well, I’m very popular.” When the cop repeated the question, the report says she became tearful, but denied there was any truth to it.
The cops left after Wendy told them once more she was okay.
Less than three weeks after Kevin welcomed a baby girl with his longtime mistress, Wendy Williams filed for divorce and kept the ball rolling by firing Kevin as executive producer of her daytime talk show.
