Talk show host Wendy Williams is divorcing her husband of 21 years.

On her show Thursday, Williams wasn't wearing her wedding ring and in a social media post by her makeup artist there was also no ring on the host’s finger. 

A spokesperson released a statement Thursday saying, “We respect their privacy regarding personal matters,” after asked by Inside Edition about the divorce. 

The bombshell news comes amid persistent rumors that her husband, Kevin Hunter, who is also an executive producer on the show, has been cheating on her with a longtime mistress. Recent reports also allege he fathered a child with her.

Hunter has long denied the rumors. 

Williams was asked about the baby as she left a sober living house recently and did not answer. 

The couple have one son.
