#TSRUpdatez: The assault case against #WendyWilliams’ son Kevin Hunter Jr. was dismissed today in a #NewJersey court, @tmz_tv reports.
Prosecutors said they had reviewed the case and decided that they no longer wanted to pursue charges against Kevin Jr. for allegedly punching his father in the face during a fight in a parking lot back in May.
Wendy’s estranged husband Kevin Hunter Sr. was present at his son’s hearing today and told the judge that he agreed with the prosecutor’s decision not to pursue charges against his son. And it also sounds like things are on the mend between the pair as Kevin Jr.’s attorney reportedly said the family relationship is solid now.
Kevin Sr. and Kevin Jr. were even seen walking out of court together. But Wendy was reportedly not present as she was shooting her talk show this morning.
Back in May, the cops were investigating a scuffle between the father and son that happened in a parking lot of a store near the family’s home in New Jersey.
Kevin Jr. was eventually arrested for assault even though Kevin Sr. did not want to pursue the matter legally. However, police still felt it necessary to arrest Kevin Jr. on assault charges.
It all went down when Wendy reportedly dropped their son to the home so he could pick something up. She left and was planning to come back to get him shortly after.
Kevin Jr. was reportedly unaware of his father being in the home at the time. Nonetheless, everything was cool and the two Kevins ended up going to the store together just after midnight.
According to TMZ, Kevin Sr. and Kevin Jr. reportedly got into an argument in the store’s parking lot. The argument was reportedly about Kevin Sr.’s demand for spousal support. Kevin Sr. also reportedly claimed that Wendy was “brainwashing” their son against him.
However, things reportedly took a turn for the worse when Kevin Sr. allegedly put their son in a headlock, and Kevin Jr. allegedly punched him in the nose to break the hold.
TMZ also reported that sources with knowledge of the argument say Kevin Sr. has urged his son for a long time to carve his own path to success and things apparently bubbled over Tuesday night when the conversation continued, and big Kevin told his son that he needed to work hard on his own and without Wendy’s handouts.
Back in April, Wendy Williams filed for divorce following multiple rumors of her husband’s infidelities.
