Wendy Williams Ex-Husband Kevin Hunter Sues Talk Show Production Company for Wrongful Termination

Wendy Williams’ ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, is taking her namesake talk show’s production company to court.

In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Hunter is suing Debmar-Mercury for wrongfully terminating him from his longtime role as executive producer on The Wendy Williams Show. The complaint claimed he was fired “on the basis of his marital status, which is barred by the New York City Human Rights Law.”

According to the lawsuit, Hunter — whose role on the syndicated series began in 2007 — received a notice from Debmar-Mercury founder Ira Bernstein informing him that his firing was “effective immediately.” Hunter claims his employment status changed days after Williams’ 2019 divorce filing.

The former couple wed in 1997 and welcomed their son, Kevin Jr., in 2000.

Williams filed for divorce in April 2019 after it was revealed that he fathered a child with his mistress. Their split wasn’t finalized until 2020.

“The termination of Plaintiff was based strictly upon Plaintiff’s marital status and his impending divorce to the Show’s host, ignoring all of the contributions that Plaintiff made to make the Show a success,” the filing states. “As a result of Defendants’ aforesaid actions and the breach of their agreement with Hunter, the Defendants have been unjustly enriched from Plaintiff’s Executive Producer contributions to the Show, as well as enduring Product Integrations engagements Plaintiff has brought to the Show and that the Show has retained.”
