Wendy Williams isn’t the only one facing financial trouble.
The “Wendy Williams Show” host’s son, Kevin Jr., is also “in the hole” for thousands.
He has failed to pay rent on his luxury Miami, Fl. apartment since February.
Wendy Williams’ Son Hit With Lawsuit
The apartment complex has hit Kevin Jr. with a lawsuit seeking $70k in back rent for non-payment, according to documents obtained by The U.S. Sun.
According to the documents, Williams paid over $100k on the apartment for her 22-year-old son for the first year of the lease, which began in March 2021 and ended this February.
Kevin agreed to continue paying rent on a monthly basis after the one-year lease term had passed.
Williams’ son responded to the lawsuit by telling the court his mother rented the apartment for him.
He Owes $70k In Back Rent
This is important, because earlier this year, news broke that Wendy’s bank, Wells Fargo, believed that she wasn’t mentally fit to handle her money. They also deemed she needed someone to monitor her finances.
Per legal documents we obtained, the financial institution wrote a letter to a New York City Judge demanding that a hearing take place to determine if Williams needs a personal “guardianship” in charge of her money.
Kevin Can’t Afford To Pay Rent Because Mom’s Accounts Are Frozen
“We are concerned about [Wendys’] situation, it is our hope that the Guardianship part [of the courts] will immediately appoint a temporary guardian or evaluator to review the situation and ensure that [Wendys’] affairs are being properly handled,” the attorney of the bank wrote.
Wells Fargo went as far as deeming Williams “incapacitated” and claimed she was “the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation.”
This background information is important, because Kevin’s lease payment lapse began when Williams’ assets were frozen.
Kevin explained that as the lease approached the end “my mom went through some health issues that put the court in control of her finances,” and that “all of the financial support that she always gave stopped,” including his housing.
The 22-year-old is in school full-time, but had to take a year off due to COVID and take care of the veteran shock jock.
“For medical and legal reasons, she has not been able to pay the rent for the past months since the 1-year lease ended and the court controlled her finances,” Kevin said. “Everything happened very quickly and unexpectedly and I had no idea things would end up like this.”
He said he’d be moving out on September 7th.
Wendy’s Ex-Husband Is Potentially Facing Foreclosure
Kevin’s father is also facing housing trouble due to Williams’ assets being frozen.
The U.S. Sun reported that her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., claimed he could face foreclosure if his alimony payments don’t resume.
His monthly payments which were made by Williams as agreed to in their divorce, suddenly stopped in February.
Williams’ ex-husband asked that the court order Williams’ guardian “to make payments as contractually required under the MSA and Severance Agreement.”
