The daytime talk show host and Kevin cited irreconcilable differences as the cause. According to PageSix, the two agreed to forego alimony but Wendy agreed to keep a $1million (£761,000) life insurance policy on herself that will go to Kevin should she finish.
However, the star – who has been dating 27-year-old man Marc Tomblin – has a right to reduce the amount on a yearly basis.
Metro.co.uk have contacted reps for comment. When their $1.7million (£1.29 million) New Jersey home sells, the former couple apparently agreed to split the proceeds. Wendy filed for divorce from her Kevin after almost 22 years of marriage back in April 2019.
The presenter married Kevin in November 1997 and they share one child, 20-year-old son Kevin Jr.
Weeks before they filed for divorce, the couple’s marriage was plagued by claims of Kevin’s cheating. According to TMZ, Wendy had arranged to have the divorce papers served to Kevin at The Wendy Williams Show studios on Thursday morning. It’s claimed that extra security was hired in case an altercation arose but Kevin did not react.
A spokesperson at the Wendy Williams Show said in a statement: ‘Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years. ‘We respect their privacy regarding personal matters. As always, we remain committed to bringing an entertaining and topical show to our viewers.’
A few days after, Kevin broke his silence after Wendy served him with the divorce papers following reports he has allegedly welcomed a baby with his long-term mistress. ‘Twenty-eight years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife but would also change the face of entertainment and the world,’ he said in a statement.
‘I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally. I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans.’ He continued: ‘I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.’ Both Wendy and Kevin have yet to comment.
