Police called as Wendy Williams allegedly poisoned by husband

Wendy Williams may be thriving now that she's in the process of divorcing her allegedly unfaithful husband Kevin Hunter - but a few months ago, fans were anxious about her well-being.

Van Jones has made it crystal clear to Wendy Williams: do not bring up his divorce.

A police report states that the call occurred back in January and that the caller wouldn't identify themselves but told police that they worked for her production company.

Williams also cut ties with Hunter professionally, removing him as executive producer from The Wendy Williams Show, with a spokesperson adding they are not hiring an additional EP to replace him.

Police arrived at her home to do a health and wellness check, and when police mentioned the poisoning claim, she broke down in tears, but said she was OK. This call came during the time Wendy was on extended leave to ostensibly recover from Graves' disease and a broken shoulder, as she told her audience.

According to the police report obtained by ET, the welfare check occurred on January 18 at Williams and Hunter's home in New Jersey after an officer received a call from a person who wished to remain anonymous, but stated that they worked for Williams' production company, and claimed that Hunter was poisoning his wife.

When they went into the couple's bedroom, they reportedly found her covered in a "blanket from head to toe", TMZ stated.

According to police, Hunter then told Williams that she didn't have to explain her health issue to the cops, and told police there had never been a domestic violence call to their home before. One officer asked to speak to Hunter separately in the hallway, but Hunter said he didn't want to leave his wife's side.

According to the report obtained by the outlet, cops showed up at Williams door asking to speak to the 54-year-old. "'Well, I'm very popular.' When the cop repeated the question, the report says she became tearful, but denied there was any truth to it", TMZ wrote.

The police left the premises soon after that.

Kevin's alleged misdeeds are also what reportedly led to Wendy's relapse later that month - and ultimately what caused her to end their 21-year marriage. There had been multiple reports for years that Hunter allegedly carried on a number of extramarital affairs, most particularly with a 33-year-old massage therapist named Sharina Hudson.
