Police reportedly conducted a welfare check on Wendy Williams back in January. According to reports, an anonymous caller tipped police off about the TV personality allegedly being poisoned by her estranged husband, Kevin Hunter.
According to TMZ, the caller believed Hunter was slipping Wendy something harmful and they wanted cops to check on her. As the officers went to check on her, the police report indicates Hunter answered the door and started acting very suspicious. Hesitating to let the police into the home, Hunter was apparently stalling by saying his wife was recovering from an illness. Williams was recovering from a broken shoulder.
“One of the officers asked Kevin to leave the bedroom so they could talk to Wendy alone, but he didn’t want to leave her side. An officer eventually asked her if there was any truth to the anonymous tip she was being poisoned, and Wendy responded with something like … ‘Well, I’m very popular.’ When the cop repeated the question, the report says she became tearful, but denied there was any truth to it.”
Williams filed for divorce from Hunter earlier this month, due to cheating allegations and Hunter having a child outside of the marriage. Williams is still living in a sober house but is planning on leaving the facility soon.
Williams fired Hunter last week from his executive producer role on her show. It’s reported Hunter received a $10 million payout to leave.
