A cry for help? On January 18, police showed up to Wendy Williams’ house in New Jersey after they got a call from someone who believed that she was being poisoned by her husband, Kevin Hunter, the police report obtained by In Touch revealed.
According to the report, the officers received an anonymous tip from someone who claimed they worked for Wendy’s production company, Debmar-Mercury. “This individual advised that they wished for LPD to check on Mrs. Williams,” the report read. The detectives tried to get information from the caller, but they refused to give out any details about themselves.
At first, the cops tried calling the Ask Wendy author, but she did not pick up, so they made a house call. Kevin, 46, answered the door and did not seem to want to let the authorities inside. “We explained that a call was received regarding Mrs. Williams’ welfare, and we wished to speak with her,” the page read. “At first, Mr. Hunter was hesitant to let us in to speak with Mrs. Williams explaining that she was sick and recovering from a health problem.” The police explained they needed to see the blonde beauty. “A minute or so went by, and Mr. Hunter returned to the door and allowed us to enter the residence,” they wrote.
The police found the New Jersey native “in bed with the blanket covering [her] from neck to toe.” One of the officers asked to speak with Wendy, while the other chatted with Kevin. Wendy revealed that she was recovering from a broken shoulder. “I informed Mrs. Williams that we had received an anonymous call informing us that her husband was poisoning her. I asked if there was any accuracy to this claim. Mrs. Williams responded saying something to the effect of, ‘Well, I’m very popular,’” the paper said.
The cop asked Wendy again if there was any truth to the claims, to which she tearfully “responded saying ‘no.’” Kevin informed the DWTS alum that she didn’t have to talk about her health issues. Finally, the cops asked Wendy if she was OK, “to which she responded that she was.”
Since the TV host fractured her shoulder in December, she took a break from work to focus on herself and returned in late February. The police incident occurred three months before the talk show host, 54, filed for divorce from her now estranged husband. At the time, the former flames were living together.
Shortly afterward, Kevin — who was also Wendy’s manager — was fired from her show. “Kevin Hunter is no longer an executive producer on The Wendy Williams Show. Debmar-Mercury wishes him well in his future endeavors,” a spokesperson for the talk show told Us Weekly.
We are sending good vibes to Wendy during this tough time.
