WENDY Williams’ son Kevin was forced out of his $2 million luxury Miami property after his famous mother was cut off from her riches and was unable to pay his rent
According to documents acquired by Page Six, Wendy Williams son Kevin Hunter Jr. was served with an eviction complaint in August after failing to make monthly rent payments since February.
A copy of Hunter’s lease, which demonstrates Williams paid $100,000 upfront for the apartment’s first year, is included in the complaint.
Kevin Hunter Jr spoke out
In his response, which was submitted around two weeks later, Hunter admits to the unpaid rent and claims that he was unable to do so because his famous mother, Wendy Williams, had “some health issues” that led to the court having authority over her funds.
“All of this happened suddenly and all of the financial support that she always gave me stopped, including my housing,” the 22-year-old Hunter wrote.
“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 and the court has controlled her finances.”
The landlord said Hunter didn’t pay the required $70,000 in rent.
Hunter added that he had to take a year off from school during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to care for the former talk show presenter, adding that his mother’s health troubles “came very quickly and unexpectedly.”
He also disclosed that he had made plans to leave the flat from where he was being tried for eviction as well as interim housing.
On September 14, the court issued a decision in favor of the apartment complex, ordering Hunter to vacate.
Page Six can also tell that on August 31, 2021, Hunter was served with a separate eviction case in Miami. After the college student refused to vacate by August 10, when his lease was supposed to finish, another Miami apartment complex filed a lawsuit to have him removed from the property.
Due to Hunter’s own decision to leave and move into the new apartment where he was sued, the case was finally dropped.
In February 2022, a judge decided that Williams, 58, needed to be under a guardian after Wells Fargo voiced its displeasure with Williams’ conduct.
“My thing is that I’ve been asking questions about my money and when I begin asking questions about my money, suddenly Lori Schiller has got no response regarding my money. I want my money.” Williams responded in a video that was uploaded to Instagram, saying, “This is not fair.”
Williams’ former financial advisor, Schiller, is accused of causing Wells Fargo to block the talk show host’s account by asserting that she was too “unsound of mind” to manage her finances.
Despite the bank fighting for authority, Schiller said she’s received “death threats.” In November, Schiller exclusively told Page Six that she didn’t pursue the guardianship for Williams but rather Wells Fargo as an institution did because of a “pattern” of behavior that made difficulties “apparent.” she’s received “death threats.”
“I have 24-hour armed police officers outside of my house kind of vetting everyone that comes to my front door. It’s starting to affect my life. I’m a prisoner in my own home,” she proclaimed continuing working on the account, putting her family “at risk”.
“I’m kind of living in my own personal hell here,” she remarked.

The Wendy Williams Show star’s lawyer claimed in a response to Kevin’s demand for payment that she hasn’t received any money from the show since. October of 2021, just one month into what would be a complete season of the program airing without her. This was first exclusively revealed by The U.S. Sun.
According to Wendy’s lawyer, “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 the plaintiff for the duration of plaintiff’s disability and incapacity,”
According to Wendy’s attorney, her client hasn’t gotten a paycheck from Talk WW since October 2021, and “she presently has no other television show being aired and paying her any income, let alone an equivalent salary.”

The Wendy Williams Show reportedly paid Wendy $10 million a year, or $55,000 per episode.

In May, it was disclosed in an additional exclusive by The U.S. Sun that Wendy had subsequently been placed in a financial guardianship.

During the star’s stint in rehab, an individual close to her said that she was receiving treatment for “egregious alcoholism”
