Wendy Williams Revealed She Is Struggling With Addiction
Wendy Williams announced Tuesday that she is living in a sober living house after grappling with addiction issues.
The talk show host and mother of one has been candid about her struggles with cocaine abuse in the past – and a report from the Daily Mail revealed that it was an over-reliance on booze and pills that prompted her to seek help this time around.
But BOSSIP has learned that Williams’ relapse was triggered by a fight with her husband and longtime business partner Kevin Hunter over his refusal to leave his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson – who is heavily pregnant with Hunter’s child.
A source with knowledge of the situation told us that Williams hired a private investigator to tail Hunter late last year, and when she learned that he was still seeing Hudson – and that she was pregnant – she hit the roof.
Williams confronted Hunter over the alleged betrayal, but the source said he refused to give Hudson up. Williams also fell and fractured her shoulder during the argument, the source said.
“He’s saying that he has the ring, the girlfriend and the baby,” the source said. “She knows now that he doesn’t care.”
We’re told that Hudson is very far along in the pregnancy and is in hiding out of state as she prepares to give birth.
And if the pregnancy revelation wasn’t bad enough, we’re told Hunter has threatened Williams to take half of her business earnings if she tries to leave him.
We’ve reached out to a rep for Williams for comment.
