“Kevin cheated on me while I was pregnant with my son,” she told “Extra” correspondent Billy Bush on Thursday, explaining that she didn’t divorce him at the time for her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., now 20.
“I didn’t want him to leave me by myself,” she said. Williams admitted she knew then it was “not ’til death do us part.”
“Kevin was a serial cheater. Kevin had different mistresses. This last one was the one he had the longest term relationship with,” Williams shared, alluding to Sharina Hudson.
Hunter did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
In March 2019 that Hudson had given birth to a child with Hunter while he was still married to the radio and TV personality. Williams filed for divorce from Hunter weeks later.
At the time Hunter released a statement, “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans.”
Now, she says it was “cathartic” to get Hunter out of her life and divorce him, but she doesn’t regret their time together.
“I don’t regret falling in love with Kevin… and I definitely don’t regret getting the best divorce attorney I could… and fighting tooth and nail to get everything out of that divorce,” she said.
The former couple finalized their divorce in January 2020. Both chose to forego alimony, but Hunter received an undisclosed lump sum from Williams and severance from Wendy, Inc.
Williams says she and Hunter occasionally keep in touch for the sake of their son.
“He calls from time to time,” she shared. “I don’t block his number, though. He’s my son’s father … He came to my mother’s funeral.”
Williams’ mother, Shirley Skinner Williams, died in late 2020.
