Wendy Williams has reportedly fired her estranged husband Kevin Hunter, as executive producer of her show.
A source who has spent time with Williams since their breakup told PEOPLE that the daytime TV host, 54, will be firing Hunter as her manager in the wake of her divorce filing — which an insider told PEOPLE came after he admitted to cheating on her and fathering a child in an extramarital relationship.
“She’s not taking him back. He’s being fired as her manager and she lawyered up big time,” the source says of Hunter, who has had an executive producer title for The Wendy Williams Show since it debuted in 2008.
This comes after Williams, who shares 19-year-old son Kevin Jr. with Hunter, filed for divorce last week after nearly 22 years of marriage.
“It’s hard after being married for so long and having a family together, to be able to move forward,” the source says. “But she realized she had to open her eyes to a bad marriage. So many stick around when they should get out.”
The source also claims that Hunter’s alleged affair has been going on for the majority of his marriage to Williams.
