Wendy Williams’ son Kevin Hunter Jr. has reportedly been arrested for assaulting his father, Kevin Hunter Sr. Sources tell TMZ that Kevin Sr. has been pressuring his 18-year-old son to carve out his own path to success, but that their discussions came to a head after midnight Wednesday, over a separate financial matter.
Kevin Jr. reportedly assaulted Kevin Sr., but dad told TMZ: “I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear.”
Wendy reportedly took Kevin Jr. to his New Jersey home to pick something up, not knowing that Kevin Sr. was there. (Wendy moved out to a new pad in NYC last month).
She dropped him off with plans to pick him up shortly thereafter, but in between, things got tense between father and son. While things went fine at first between father and son, they ended up going to a store shortly after midnight Wednesday, where they got into a fight, reportedly over Kevin Sr.’s demand for spousal support.
Kevin Sr. reportedly put Jr. in a headlock, at which point Jr. punched him in the nose to break the hold.
Williams filed for divorce in April after widespread reports of infidelity on his part. Williams fired him her show as exec producer, and he has since asked for spousal support and child support.
