Hunter Sr. took to Instagram Live on Tuesday, March 22, to touch on his relationship with Williams, as well as slam The Wendy Williams Show producers and the ailing talk show host's team, who he alleged put her in a life-or-death situation.
According to the father-of-two, there are people in Williams' life who "are responsible for almost seeing her life come to an end," Radar reported.
"There are current people in place, management, that clearly put her in a life-or-death situation. And denied medical coverage and care," Hunter Sr. lamented. "If it wasn’t for my son and myself stepping in, that’s it."
Hunter Sr. then recalled an incident where the 57-year-old needed medical attention but was denied help by her team, as they apparently refused to let the former couple's son, Kevin Hunter Jr., allow "rescuers" up to treat her during a health scare, it was reported.
The former executive producer on the recently-cancelled talk show — who is suing the producers for wrongful termination — claimed his son threatened to call the police on his mom's team if they did not get out of his way. “And two blood transfusions later, that queen is still here," Hunter Sr. said in his Live video.
It's unclear what exactly happened during the health scare or when the incident went down, but Hunter Sr. maintained there are still vultures around Williams — who stepped back from her talk show in September 2021 due to a slew of health woes.
Hunter Sr. also declared that people at the show dropped the ball after he was fired from The Wendy Williams Show in 2019, as they failed to take care of the embattled host.
As OK! reported, Hunter Sr. stated in his $10 million lawsuit that Debmar-Mercury axed him “on the basis of his marital status” after Williams filed for divorce following their 21-year marriage, with her citing that his alleged affair with Sharina Hudson — who became pregnant at the time — played a role in her decision to call it quits. Producers have yet to respond to the lawsuit.
Hunter Sr. doubled down on his lawsuit claims during the Instagram Live, telling viewers that his job was “stripped from me because who I choose to be with." He added that people around Williams tried to discredit all he had done for the show once he was given the boot.
During his Tuesday video, Hunter Sr. also reportedly admitted to having an affair, but questioned why it would lead to him being fired.
"When it comes to my personal life of what the public has been able to see in real-time, I take full accountability for my actions and understanding how I might have hurt a lot of people …" he said of his romance with baby mama Hudson. (Hunter Sr. and Hudson now live together in Florida with their child.)
“I did hurt somebody — for that, I wish her nothing but the best and wellness and support," Hunter Sr. continued, as he vaguely touched on his infidelity.
Despite the exes parting ways, Hunter Sr. made note that he "truly" respects "all I was able to experience with my ex-wife and what we were able to accomplish," adding: "What she has clearly accomplished on her own and her own merit, and what we were able to accomplish together."
Hunter Sr. has been helping the mother of his child get back on her feet while navigating her several health issues and legal problems. He even noted in his video that he was there for her when they were going through their divorce, telling his followers: "I still had to save her life."
While assuring her concerned fans that Hunter Jr. is looking after his mom amid her road to recovery, Hunter Sr. bashed the show's producers for already moving on to Sherri Shepherd. He compared the situation to an athlete being injured, explaining a team would allow their star player time to recover and come back rather than discard them.
OK! reported last month that Williams' beloved show was coming to an end, with it being taken over by Shepherd's new series, Sherri, starting in September.
