AceShowbiz -Is Wendy Williams keeping distance from her own son? If a new report is to be believed, the former “The Wendy Williams Show” host hasn’t spoken to Kevin Hunter Jr. since she left rehab last month.
The Sun reported on Tuesday, November 15 that Kevin has yet to hear from his mom since she left a treatment facility in Malibu last month. “Wendy has not reached out to her son since she left the rehab,” a source close to the family spilled to the outlet. “While she was in treatment, they were talking but the minute she got out the communication stopped.”
“Kevin has been through hell this year with everything going on with his mom,” the so-called insider continued. “It breaks his heart that things seemed to be going well while she was in rehab, but as soon as she got her freedom, she hasn’t reached out to him since.”
The source further claimed that 22-year-old Kevin is trying to deal with his fractured relationship with the former talk show queen. “Kevin has been trying to stay focused and finish up his last year of school, but it’s been challenging having to deal with everything going on with his mother,” they said.
Kevin Jr. has been by his mother’s side throughout her health troubles. The issues started to surface in 2021 when Wendy missed out on her talk show season premiere. She was then hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation and skipped out on the rest of her season.

Amid Wendy’s struggles, Kevin Jr. reportedly gave his mother an ultimatum to get better or he would be gone. The insider added, “Wendy’s relationship with Kevin Jr. has been strained. He gave her an ultimatum. He told her he won’t be in her life unless she fixes herself.”

Then on October 18, her publicist Shawn Zanotti announced that she had returned home. “We are happy to report that Wendy Williams is home and healing after being in a wellness facility since August,” said Shawn. “She wants to say, ‘thank you to my fans for your love, support and many prayers.’ “
