Kevin Hunter has filed a lawsuit against the producers of the “Wendy Williams Show” claiming he was wrongfully terminated when his marriage to Wendy fell apart.
Wendy filed for divorce from Hunter, whose legal name is Kelvin Hunter, in 2019 over his alleged infidelities.
Kevin’s lawsuit against Debmar-Mercury was filed on Tuesday (March 1) in New York.
His attorney, Abe George, said in a statement:
Kelvin Hunter was one of the reasons behind the Wendy Williams Show’s tremendous success and everything seemed to go south after he left.
Mr. Hunter was unlawfully terminated solely due to his marital status to Wendy, which is contrary to human rights laws in NYC.
This lawsuit seeks to compensate Mr. Hunter for the sweat equity that he put into the show and that Debmar-Mercury will continue to profit on even in their new reincarnation of the Wendy Williams Show.
Kevin Hunter is seeking $7 million in compensatory damages, plus punitive damages, and court costs.
Good luck with that.
