The Internets collectively breathed a sigh of relief when it was announced that talk show queen Wendy Williams officially filed for divorce from her husband of nearly twenty years.
Now more details are unfolding over how the whole split went down. Sources told LoveBScott that Wendy presented divorce papers to her estranged hubby as a gift.
The insider also said that Kevin screamed and cursed upon receiving the news.
Since the announcement, Kevin is no longer permitted to access the Wendy Williams show studios.
“Kevin is now persona non-grata at ‘The Wendy Williams Show,” B Scott reports. “The passcodes have been changed and his access to the building has been revoked. Wendy has instructed staff to not let him anywhere near her.’”
In the split, The Wendy Show production team is standing by their leading lady in a statement saying:
“Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years. We respect their privacy regarding personal matters. As always, we remain committed to bringing an entertaining and topical show to our viewers.”
Wendy’s camp sent this statement to Ebony after news of their divorce spread wide:
“Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time,” a personal representative of Williams’ said in a statement to EBONY. “Kevin is supportive of Wendy, and they are working through this process together. No additional comment will be provided at this time.”
Rumors of the couple’s pending separation came amid speculation after Kevin allegedly fathered a child with another woman while married to Wendy.
The host even dismissed the gossip on a recent show, telling her audience/co-hosts:
“I want to shout out to my husband. I’m still wearing my ring,” she pointed out. “Believe me you, when you’ve been with somebody for 28 years … married for 25 years … we know each other. He’s my best friend, he’s my lover, he’s all this and he’s all that. I know what you’ve been seeing and I know what the streets have been talking about.”
Looks like that ship has finally sailed.
