Wendy Williams’ husband tried to stall police when they unexpectedly showed up to the talk show host’s New Jersey home following a claim that he poisoned her, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to a shocking police report obtained by Radar, Wendy’s now-ex Kevin Hunter was so hesitant to let cops in to the residence to conduct a welfare check that he initially shut the door on them!
“We explained that any time a call comes in, even if it is anonymous, we are required to see and speak with the individual. At that time Mr. Hunter instructed us to wait and closed the front door,” the report stated.
Police officers responded to Williams’ home on January 18 at about 7:30 p.m. after an anonymous caller who claimed to work for Williams alleged her husband poisoned her.
In addition to shutting the front door on the officers, the police report described Hunter as “hesitant.” He informed police that Williams was “sick and recovering from a health problem.”
According to the report, Hunter made the authorities wait for a minute outside before allowing them to enter the property.
Officers stated that they found Williams in bed “with the blanket covering from neck to toe.” The troubled host informed police that she was recovering from a broken shoulder.
Williams denied being poisoned by her husband, although police said she “became tearful” as she responded “no.”
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Williams filed for divorce from Hunter earlier this month.
In the divorce filing, the television personality claimed the exes separated six months ago. She also stated in paperwork that there is “no prospect of reconciliation.”
Williams cut ties from her husband of nearly 22 years after reports surfaced that Hunter’s mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth to a baby girl last month.
Meanwhile, The Wendy Williams Show host has been battling a relapse and even checked herself into a sober living facility.
Hunter has worked by Williams’ side on her show for years. But sources recently dished to Radar that he has been fired and barred from entering her studio.
