Wendy Williams’s ex-husband Kevin Hunter has filed a lawsuit against the production company, Debmar-Mercury, producers and distributors of ‘The Wendy Williams’ show for wrongful termination.
In his lawsuit, Kevin Hunter claims he was terminated “on the basis of his marital status which is barred by the New York City Human Rights Law.” And as a result of the firing, he “has suffered an economic loss, which will be determined by trial, in the range of seven to ten million dollars.”
According to Kevin Hunter, in April 2019, after Wendy filed for divorce, he received a letter from the Debmar-Mercury company that he was terminated. The letter stated, “effective immediately, your role as Executive Producer of the Wendy Williams Show is terminated, and your professional relationship with Debmar-Mercury is also concluded.”
He also listed some of what he was responsible for, among the many listed, he alleges some of his duties involved “the creation of the show’s brand and the look and feel of the show; helping conceptualize the wildly popular, ‘Hot Topics,’ ‘Shoe Cam,’ and ‘Hot Seat,’ segments of the show.”
The filing also claims that many of the segments he Kevin Hunter helped create on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ will be part of Sherri Shepherd’s new show.
Kevin Hunter is now asking for “not less than seven million dollars″ and “punitive damages, lost wages, commissions,” as he’s also asking for “the costs and fees of this proceeding, including legal fees.”
