WENDY Williams’ son broke his silence on his mother’s “unexpected” health crisis after he said he was evicted and forced to drop out of school.
In a heartfelt pleading to a judge, Wendy‘s 22-year-old son said that as a result of his mother’s health issues, he had to drop out of school “for a full academic year” in part to care for her.
In the eviction paperwork, Kevin noted that his mother has always paid for his housing.
“All this happened suddenly and all the financial support that she has always gave me stopped, including my housing.”
Kevin said his mother had not always just financially supported him, but that she paid his rent for a full year in advance for the luxury pad which he rented in March of 2021.
“When I moved in my mom, Wendy Hunter rented the apartment for me paying for a full year plus security,” and added that she intended to purchase the abode at the end of the lease.
“As the lease approached the end, my mom went through some health issues that put the court in control of her finances,” Kevin said of the lease which ended in February of 2022.
Kevin Jr. added that “even though my name is on the lease, my mom was paying, and for medical and legal reasons, she has not been able to pay the rent for the past months since the 1-year lease ended an the court has controlled her finances.”
Wendy’s only child also said he had spent the past several months “back and forth between states checking on my mom’s well-being.”
The 22-year-old added: “Everything happened very quickly and unexpectedly and I had no idea things would end up like this.”

As The U.S. Sun first exclusively reported, Wendy, 58, was placed in a financial guardianship earlier this year following a months-long absence from The Wendy Williams Show as she faced a myriad of health issues.
In the paperwork, Kevin said he was once again enrolled in school full-time.
As The US Sun first exclusively revealed Kevin Jr was hit with a lawsuit seeking nearly $70,000 in back rent for non-payment on the Florida home this year.
The eviction suit, which was filed in August, includes a copy of Kevin Jr.‘s lease, which shows Wendy paid for a full year of rent in advance, as well as a security deposit and other fees.
Wendy dropped over $100,000 on the apartment for her son for the first year of the lease – which started in March of 2021 and ended in February, with Kevin agreeing to continue to rent the apartment on a monthly basis after the lease term had passed.
The U.S. Sun previously exclusively reported that Wendy’s Wells Fargo accounts were frozen in January of this year, which lines up with when the overdue rent began to pile up, as mentioned in Kevin’s eviction lawsuit.
WENDY’S EX CUT OFF
Kevin Jr is not the only person whose living conditions have been impacted by Wendy being placed under financial guardianship.
As The U.S. Sun reported last week, Wendy’s ex, Kevin Hunter Sr, claimed he could face foreclosure if his alimony payments don’t resume.
In that court filing, also exclusively obtained by The U.S. Sun, Wendy‘s ex claimed his monthly payments which were made by the star as agreed to in their divorce, suddenly stopped in February 2022.
Kevin asked that the court order Wendy‘s guardian “to make payments as contractually required under the Marital Settlement Agreement and Severance Agreement.”
“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,” Kevin said in his pleading to the court about the home he shares with his mistress and their love child.
WENDY’S FINAL SEASON SALARY
In pushing back on Kevin’s demand for payment, The U.S. Sun previously exclusively revealed earlier that the ex-TV host’s attorney filed that the star has not had income from The Wendy Williams Show since October of 2021, just one month into what would be an entire season of the show going on in her absence.
“On October 15, 2021, the plaintiff was informed by Talk WW that her contract was being suspended and that no compensation shall accrue or be payable to plaintiff for the duration of plaintiff’s disability and incapacity,” Wendy’s attorney wrote.
Wendy was reportedly making $10million a year, or $55,000 an episode, for The Wendy Williams Show.
As The U.S. Sun first exclusively reported, Wells Fargo froze her accounts in January of this year over concerns that Wendy “was of unsound mind,” and the bank suspected “financial exploitation, dementia, or undue influence.”
In another exclusive by The U.S. Sun, it was revealed in May that Wendy had subsequently been placed in a financial guardianship.
Wendy spent two months earlier this year in a Malibu, California rehab treating severe alcoholism, sources alleged.
The host, who had previously claimed she was sober, had a number of public incidents involving alcohol before she checked into rehab for severe alcoholism in August.
One insider close to the star claimed about her rehab stay that she was being treated for “extreme alcohol abuse.
“She has had numerous doctors who have told her for years ‘If you drink, you’ll die.’ She never really wanted to stop and the people around her in New York allowed her to keep drinking.”
Her longtime production company, Debmar-Mercury, announced that her show was officially canceled earlier this summer and that Wendy’s time slot would be going to her former guest host, Sherri Shepherd.
