Wendy Williams’ Ex-Husband Kevin Hunter Reveals Email From Talk Show Staff In $10 Million Lawsuit + He Claims He Created ‘Hot Topics’ & ‘Shoe Cam’ Segments

Kevin Hunter releases shocking evidence against The Wendy Williams Show.

Wendy Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter recently dropped a bombshell in his $10 million lawsuit against Debmar-Mercury. Hunter filed the suit in 2019 and claims the company, which distributed The Wendy Williams Show, fired him unconstitutionally.

According to Radar, Hunter leaked an email that was allegedly from Ira Bernstein of Debmar-Mercury. The email is said to have read:

“Dear Kevin, Out of respect for our 10-year working relationship, we had hoped to meet you in person and traveled to New York to do so, but unfortunately, you have canceled today’s meeting and we are left with no choice but to communicate to you in writing that effective immediately, your role as Executive Producer of the Wendy Williams Show is terminated, and your professional relationship with Debmar- Mercury is also concluded.”

Bernstein allegedly continued:

“In connection with the termination of employment, you were no longer permitted on the studio premises and all communication regarding your transition (including collection of your belongings from the studio premises) should be handled via your attorney as you have indicated that you are represented by counsel.”

He added:

“Your attorney may reach out to either of us directly so we can direct him/her to the appropriate parties. Thank you for all your contributions over the years, Kevin we wish you well.”

When Debmar-Mercury came to Wendy Williams with the idea of a show in 2007, Hunter negotiated the deal as her manager.

He reportedly claims that he built The Wendy Williams Show brand and created segments like “Hot Topics” and “Shoe Cam.”

In 2019, Wendy served Hunter with divorce papers. Days later, Hunter says that he received the email about his termination. According to court documents, he argues:

“[His] divorce proceedings did not absolve the [producers] of their responsibilities to pay him for his contributions to the Show and allow him to continue in his role as Executive Producer unless agreed upon by [Kevin] and [producers] that his role would cease and that the [producers] would compensate him accordingly.”
