According to DailyMail, Kevin Hunter has been fired as an executive producer on his estranged wife Wendy Williams’ show, as the $215K Ferrari he bought for his baby mama is towed away.
Williams decided she finally had enough of her philandering husband of nearly 22 years and served him divorce papers at her TV studio in Manhattan last Thursday.
The 47-year-old was fired from the show and as Wendy’s manager, a source on the show confirmed to DailyMail.com.
The source also said Hunter had been given 48 hours to remove his belongings from their marital home in Livingston, New Jersey as she was seen apartment hunting in New York City on Tuesday.
Wendy reached her tipping point after learning Hunter had been living the high life with his decade-long mistress Sharina Hudson, who gave birth last month, splurging on Rolls-Royces, Ferraris and gifting her with diamonds.
Hunter released an apology on Tuesday admitting he was not ‘proud of his recent actions’ and was ‘trying to right some wrongs’ while taking ‘full accountability’ for what he had done.
His grovelling statement came after the flashy $215,000-plus gold Ferrari Portofino he gifted Hudson was seen being towed away – a day after Wendy hit him with the divorce papers.
The source said: ‘Kevin had expected to stay on at the show and as Wendy’s manager. He ran the show with an iron fist, he was the guy who kept the vultures away.
‘But when Wendy saw the photos of him and Sharina last week on the Daily Mail going out for dinner and her driving around in a Ferrari she was furious.
‘That’s what tipped her over the edge, she was like, “he’s gotta go”. She now wants him out of her life completely, she’s given him 48 hours to clear his office and clear his belongings out of the house.
‘Wendy’s sister Wanda came up from Florida over the weekend and she’s helping get everything in order. Wendy means business, she’s cleaning house.’
A day after DailyMail.com published photos of the new Ferrari that Hunter gifted Hudson, it was loaded onto a truck and taken away.
A Ferrari dealership from Greenwich, Connecticut, picked the golden car up, as two men who appear to be helpers for Hunter looked on.
Hunter’s statement on Tuesday read: ’28 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.
‘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. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.
‘No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine.
‘I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.’
On Monday, Wendy kicked off her Hot Topics segment by revealing she was just a few days away from moving out the sober living facility she has called home for the past few weeks and is ready to start a new life for herself and her son Kevin Jr. – the son she shares with Hunter.
DailyMail.com exclusively revealed in early March the TV host had been living in the sober home in Queens, New York, to battle an addiction to alcohol and prescription pills, her downward spiral sparked by learning Hunter was still seeing Hudson.
Meanwhile, Hunter has been spending time with Hudson, who recently gave birth, at a hideaway in Edgewater, New Jersey.
The two seem to be living the high life, going out for dinner dates and driving new luxury vehicles.
Hunter was seen driving a new maroon convertible Rolls-Royce last Saturday to pick up Hudson and take her out to dinner, with the massage therapist proudly showing off her post-baby pooch.
