Wendy Williams' ex Kevin Hunter sells Florida mansion for $1.25M as credit card bills pile up
Kevin Hunter, Wendy Williams' ex-husband, has been facing a financial crunch lately, especially since he stopped receiving alimony
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Wendy Williams' ex-husband Kevin Hunter has sold the Florida mansion he purchased following their divorce, notably after the two got into a legal tussle regarding alimony payments.
Hunter sold his 3,425-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bathroom home for $1.25 million, according to court documents.
Sharina Hudson was reported to be Hunter's mistress
Hunter paid $795,600 as he bought the Parkland, Florida, property in 2020. He has since shared the pad with his girlfriend Sharina Hudson, who was rumored to have been Hunter's mistress during his marriage to Williams, as reported by Radar Online.
Hunter's child was born in March 2019 to Hudson. The next month, the talk show presenter filed for divorce.
Wendy Williams has to pay Kevin Hunter alimony
Williams has agreed to pay Hunter alimony on a monthly basis as per their settlement. He recently asserted, though, that the checks suddenly stopped arriving in early 2022.
This was apparently a result of Williams' dispute with Wells Fargo regarding access to her fortune. The performer filed a lawsuit against the bank, stating that her accounts were locked. However, this was because Williams might become the victim of financial exploitation, a bank representative told the court.
Meanwhile, Hunter informed the court, "I have fallen behind on most of my bills. I currently live in a community that requires payments to the homeowners association and I'm behind on that bill. If the homeowners association fees are not paid foreclosure will soon follow."
He added, "I'm behind on credit card payments because I have no money since the severance payments were suspended. My life has been greatly affected since the plaintiff stopped making payments under our settlement agreement."
Regardless, he lost the court battle and has apparently been facing a dire financial crunch in the months since.
UBS Bank USA's lawsuit against Hunter
UBS Bank USA filed a lawsuit against Hunter for allegedly owing $20,000 on his credit card.
The lawsuit stated, "Defendant has failed to make the minimum monthly payments by the payment due date, as required by the Cardmember Agreement," and demanded that Hunter pay the "entire debt plus legal costs."
After Hunter failed to respond to the case despite being served a legal notice legal notice, UBS recently requested that the court issue a default judgment.
Meanwhile, Hunter secured a victory his $10 million wrongful termination lawsuit against 'The Wendy Williams Show' producers.
Hunter claimed in his lawsuit that the producers fired him following Williams' divorce filing, which was against the law in New York. The producers tried to get the case dismissed, but a federal judge rejected the motion last month and decided it could proceed.
