That picture above can now serve as a helpful Williams family warning, which is: unless you want it to get violent, you better always keep someone between Kevin Hunter and Kevin Jr. According to TMZ, things got messy between Wendy Williams’s estranged husband and their 18-year-old son Kevin Jr. It ended with Kevin Jr. being arrested for assault. It’s not known if Wendy asked “How you doin?” when Kevin Jr. called her from the police station, but for now let’s assume she did.
Things have been a mess between Wendy and her estranged husband for a long time now. There was the rumors of a 10-year mistress that got knocked up and gave birth. There was time off and a sober living house and divorce papers and walking papers. Now Kevin Jr. has been pulled into this tornado of drama, and not in a way we can all laugh and cringe at.
Sources tell TMZ that it happened after midnight this morning in a parking lot in New Jersey near their family home. Wendy reportedly dropped her son off at home last night to pick something up. Kevin Jr. didn’t know his dad was there, and he hung around a bit because things were ok between the two Kevins.
Shortly after midnight, the Kevins decided to go to a nearby store. Sources say that the Kevins got into a verbal fight in the parking lot over Kevin Sr.’s recent request for child and spousal support. Kevin Sr. reportedly lost it and accused Kevin Jr. of being brainwashed by his mom. One source claims that Kevin Sr. put Kevin Jr. in a headlock, which Kevin Jr. attempted to get out of by punching his dad in the nose.
Law enforcement investigated the incident and arrested Kevin Jr. for assault. Luckily for Kevin Jr., Kevin Sr. has no plans to pursue the matter legally. Kevin Sr. spoke to TMZ saying, “I love my son very much…Things are not always how they appear.”
Another source thinks they know how the fight started, and they say that Kevin Sr. has been getting on Kevin Jr. about carving his own career path. Kevin Sr. has also allegedly been lecturing his son about taking financial handouts from his mom, and that he needs to work hard and do it on his own. It makes sense now. How is Kevin supposed to collect child support handouts from Wendy when she’s skipping the middle man and giving them directly to her son? If Kevin Sr. really wants that money so badly, he’s got to beg his son for cash “loans” whenever he needs it. Hey, he’s already done his time as a shitty husband – shitty dad is the next logical transition.
