People.com reports that an altercation broke out at 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday night in West Orange. The 18-year-old was charged with simple assault and “was processed and released by West Orange Police Department the same evening and was not taken to county jail.”

The incident allegedly happened at a store parking lot. TMZ reports, “We’re told things bubbled over Tuesday night when the conversation continued, and Sr. told Jr. he needed to work hard on his own and without Wendy’s handouts.” Allegedly, Kevin Sr. also claimed Wendy was “brainwashing” their son to be against him.

TMZ continued, “Our sources say it got physical when Kevin Sr. allegedly put his son in a headlock, and we’re told Kevin Jr. punched him in the nose to break the hold. ”

Kevin Hunter Sr. released the following statement to TMZ, “I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear.”

A spokeswoman for the Ethics County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey confirmed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that an incident took place at 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday night in West Orange.

Williams is divorcing her husband after being married for nearly two decades. Hunter was also fired as the executive producer of her talk show.

The chips are falling hard for Hunter. On April 13, Aveon Falstar, a former artist of Hunter, alleged on the podcast “unWineWithTashaK” that he had a sexual relationship with him throughout last year. He accused Hunter of abuse and said his attorneys sent a “pre-suit” demand letter that addressed sexual assault and sexual humiliation. He admitted to asking for an undisclosed amount of money.

Hunter’s attorney has denied all allegations.

In addition, back in January, TMZ reported that someone alleging to work for Williams’ production company called the police and demanded they pay a safety visit to her house. They believed Hunter was poisoning Wendy. The 54-year-old reportedly denied the accusation to the police.

Sharina Hudson, Hunter’s alleged mistress, reportedly gave birth to their child last month, which was supposedly the breaking point for Williams.

Divorce always hard on children. We hope Kevin Hunter Jr. is okay.
