Wendy Williams‘ personal life has been a hot topic for a while now and she finally addressed it on her show Monday morning. However, what she didn’t discuss was her multimillion-dollar fortune being at risk because, as of 2013, she did not have a prenup.
That was when Williams went on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM show and revealed — even after her husband Kevin Hunter cheated — that she and her husband, manager and the executive producer of “The Wendy Williams Show,” didn’t have a prenup.
Celebrity Net Worth reported that the talk show host was worth an incredible $40 million. She reportedly has a salary that has paid $10 million a year for her show, which breaks down to about $55,000 per episode. On the other hand, Celebrity Net Worth had Hunter’s monetary value listed at $10 million. Without a prenup, Williams could lose millions.
New Jersey, which is where the couple made their home, is considered an equitable division state. Therefore, their marital assets “are divided in such a manner determined to be fair — but not necessarily equal — by the courts,” according to Riker.com. Her husband could receive half or maybe less but it will certainly be significant considering the role he has played in her career.
For the first time ever, Williams addressed her reported martial strife on her show Monday morning.
“I have to tell you, you know, I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son,” she said. “Believe me you, when you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day … this is my life in the sober house, it’s one of the best things, honestly, that could have ever happened to me.”
Sharina Hudson, Hunter’s alleged mistress, reportedly gave birth to their child last month. Hunter also allegedly bought Hudson a home just down the street from where he was living with Williams.
After announcing the divorce, Williams said in a statement, “Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time. Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together.”
We will see if this divorce gets messy.
