Wendy Williams' son, Kevin Jr., was in court this morning for his alleged assault against his father, Keving Hunter Sr. He pleaded not guilty. Find out why the case is being continued inside...
Wendy Williams' son Kevin Hunter Jr. had his day in court this morning.
The 18-year-old went before a judge and pleaded not guilty in his assault case that involves his father, Kevin Hunter Sr. You'll recall, Kevin Jr. was arrested last month after he got into a physical altercation with Wendy's estranged husband in a store parking lot near their old New Jersey home.
It was previously reported Kevin Sr. allegedly put his son in the headlock and Kevin Jr. punched him in the nose to break free. Cops revealed they were investigating the "incident" and they apparently found Kevin Jr. at fault and arrested him. It's reported the fight started when Kevin Sr. urged his son to carve his own path to success and that he needed to do so without handouts from his mother. It was originally reported they got into it over Kevin Sr.'s request for spousal support.
Kevin Sr. does not want to press charges, but because it's a domestic incident, prosecutors often press charges regardless. The prosecutor asked for more time so he could review the case, and it was continued. The prosecutor believes the case would be resolved at the next hearing, so it sounds like a plea deal may be reached.
Both Wendy and Kevin Sr. showed up at court today. They were reportedly sitting outside in a car outside the courthouse. Sources tell TMZ Wendy and Kevin were advised it was unnecessary for them to go inside because the case was continued.
Wendy reportedly told a friend, "There's still love between us, regardless of the divorce," adding that she and Kevin Sr. are still "friends." Oh? Interesting. She said they'll all "work through this" and will maintain a relationship grounded in friendship.
As you know, Wendy pulled the plug on their divorce back in April after it was reported that Kevin Sr. fathered a baby with his alleged mistress Sharina Hudson.
