Police performed a welfare check for Wendy Williams after a caller claimed her husband was ‘poisoning’ her
It has been revealed that Police paid Wendy Williams a visit earlier this year to check on the talk show host after a random caller alleged her now estranged husband, Kevin Hunter, was poisoning her.
According to TMZ, Police said the outrageous call made back in January, came from someone claiming to work for Williams’ production company. The caller believed Kevin was poisoning Wendy, and he or she wanted cops to check on her.
The report says two officers went to Williams’ New Jersey residence and were greeted by Hunter, who was hesitant to let them in for the welfare check because he said Wendy was sick and recovering from a health problem.
The authorities said they explained to Hunter they were required to speak with Williams due to the anonymous call. When he allowed them to enter, they found Williams in bed “with the blanket covering from neck to toe.”
According to the report, one of the officers asked Kevin to leave the bedroom so they could talk to Wendy alone, but he didn’t want to leave her side. As for the health problem she had Wendy told cops she was recovering from a broken shoulder.
An officer eventually asked her if there was any truth to the anonymous tip she was being poisoned, and Wendy responded with something like “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.
