Wendy Williams‘ soon-to-be ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, has broken his silence in a statement to People magazine.
In his statement, Kevin apologized to his estranged wife for his “recent actions” (presumably welcoming a baby with his mistress).
He also noted that he is also working on his own sobriety. Kevin vowed to continue to work with and fully support Wendy no matter what their future holds.
Read his full statement below:
I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.
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.
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.
Now, to the messy and murky waters…
One of Kevin’s former protégés, Aveon Falstar, claims Kevin Hunter sexually abused him during a recent interview with controversial vlogger, Tasha K.
According to Aveon, he carried on a sexual relationship with Kevin throughout most of 2018 that consisted of Hunter moving him into his Fort Lee condo and treating him like a “boy toy.”
Aveon told Tasha K:
It wasn’t a sexual relationship. It was much more of an abusement relationship.
It was much more of a put me down and keep me as your boy toy relationship. We did [have sex]…He came over and practically raped me at 3 o’clock in the morning.
Kevin Hunter, through his attorney, has denied all of the allegations Aveon Falstar has made.
The claims levied by Mr. Aveon Williams against Mr. Kevin Hunter are baseless and are completely false. Mr. Williams’ actions are a part of an elaborate scheme to extort money from Mr. Hunter and is nothing more than an attempt to shake him down for financial gain.
This office did not offer to settle this matter for any amount nor did we counter their offer as, in accordance with our own independent investigation of these claims, we determined that Mr. Williams’ claims were without merit and we will not allow our client to be extorted by Mr. Williams.
Mr. Hunter denies Mr. Williams’ claims in the entirety and it further saddens us that Mr. Williams is essentially making light of crimes involving sexual battery by levying these false claims, which a great disservice to those individuals who have actually been the victim of these types of heinous crimes.
Whew chile…dis tew much!
