Kevin Hunter Jr., Wendy Williams’ son, is speaking up about his mother’s health and well-being.
The 22-year-old college student spoke with The U.S. Sun about how he believes Wendy’s crew is taking advantage of her fortune despite her reported battle with alcoholism, which he claims prevents her from making informed judgments.
Kevin was financially supported by his mother when her financial affairs were taken over by a guardian in May 2022.
“People have put other things in front of her healing and getting better, and unfortunately, unlike many other alcoholics, she is worth a lot more money,” he said.
“I know there are a lot of things going on that I know she would never agree to in her right mind.” As difficult as it is to witness her being taken advantage of, I know that the most essential thing is that she is safe as a person.”
“Because, eventually, she’ll realize the craziness that’s been going on,” her son says. Wendy’s staff has been contacted for comment on her son’s recent interview.
The Wendy Williams Show terminated after 13 seasons in June 2022, following a long vacation from the show’s host. There has since been discussion of the TV celebrity producing a podcast or possibly a reality show. She’s also been in and out of hospitals in the last few years.
Her son’s primary concern appears to be the people around her, whom he believes continue to profit from his mother’s illness.
“What’s been made more important by the people around her is that while her health may not be great, she needs to keep on earning income, and in my opinion that should not be a priority at all. And whoever has been hired, they are taking advantage of someone who needs to get better,” he tells The Sun.
Kevin also claims Wendy’s health deteriorated while she lived with him in Florida from late 2021 until roughly the spring of 2022 and that she suffers from alcoholism.
“I know she consumes alcohol more than the average person – and we’ve discussed it.” “I told him, ‘This is one of those things where you don’t know how to approach it normally, and that’s fine.'” “And it’s gotten to the point where it could be fatal because it affects her far worse than a normal person because it stays in her system.”

Kevin argues that his mother’s body does not absorb alcohol like the ordinary person’s because of her health issues.
“There are a lot of people who are very aware that there is an issue with her drinking and how that issue may be helped, but I think these people are taking advantage of it while allowing it to play out to make it look like they aren’t causing the issue,” he says.
Wendy’s publicist, Shawn Zanotti, informed in October 2022 that she had left a wellness facility where she had been since August. Kevin claims her mother told him that her manager asked her to sign various contracts around that period.
“They put her in a position where she agreed to many things she shouldn’t have.” “I was turned off when I heard that,” Kevin claims. “At first, when I was trying to figure out what everyone’s objective was around her, I thought, ‘OK, this is the team she wants to have around.’ But when I heard she agreed to things related to her treatment, I thought, ‘Well, OK, they are taking advantage.”

Kevin believes his mother is not receiving the assistance she requires, even when she requests it. “I feel like a lot of people wanting to ‘help’ her are coming from a place of, ‘OK, she’s alone now,'” he says. “Let’s see if we can get her to act the way we want her to act or if we can control the rate at which she handles herself.”
Wendy’s son believes her team is encouraging her to drink. “If they aren’t providing it, they are definitely enabling a certain type of personality and giving her the green light to drink,” he says.
Wendy was photographed in New York City clubs in April, and her publicist, Shawn, described it as a “celebration” night.
“All they’re doing is raising their hands. “It’s very easy just to let certain things play out when someone has hired help,” Kevin says in response to Shawn’s “celebration” comment. “No matter how much someone tries to say that they’re there for someone, if you’re being paid to be there, there’s only so much you can say (to that person).” I never want to humiliate somebody, but in terms of questioning, they aren’t if that person is there so that my mother may be the healthiest person and have a long career. They are only present in the now.”
“I don’t want any of this to come across as me being angry at anyone,” he continues. They don’t understand the circumstances, and when she speaks, she may sound coherent enough for them to assume, ‘OK, she just wants to have fun.’ And for that reason, I will never hate it because everyone is just trying to care for themselves, even with hired aid. That’s all there is to it.”
Kevin is hoping Wendy recovers entirely before returning to work.
“I believe it is best for her to prioritize her health first.” Nobody will tell her this, but she does not have to work,” he says. “She needs to stop trying to advance her career and be proud of her accomplishments.”
Wendy has returned to New York, and Kevin is “hoping and praying that the people who are up there with her right now don’t lead her down a path where something can’t happen to help her.”
“In terms of what is and isn’t; when she was with me, none of these articles about her not looking well ever came out,” he continues. That started happening when she was brought back up there [to New York City] after the court proceedings, and from that standpoint, something has gone wrong.”
