The Wendy Williams Show has been going solid for over a decade now. The national TV show is distributed by Debmar-Mercury and produced by Wendy Williams Productions alongside Perler Productions. Today they have troublesome news for them.

On Tuesday, Wendy Williams’s ex Kevin Hunter has decided to take legal action against the show’s distributor, Debmar-Mercury. Hunter claimed the distributor’s decision to terminate him was based on his marital status.

Hunter and Williams married in 1997, and the TV personality filed for divorce in April 2019. In the court documents acquired by ET, Hunter claimed he received a written notice from Debmar-Mercury that he was fired as the executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show just a few days after their divorce was filed.

Hunter further stated in the documents that he was involved in the show ever since its debut in 2008. He was “instrumental to the show’s success” as he “negotiated, produced, and planned most of the concepts and branding behind the show.”

Hunter is looking for a jury trial and is seeking compensatory, punitive damages, an award of costs, interest and attorney’s fees, and many more, which amounts to a total of $7 million.
