The former flames — who share son Kevin Hunter Jr, 20 — wed in 1997. The 57-year-old filed for divorce from her husband in April 2019.

While Williams tried to get her life back on track following the couple's split — she spent time in a sober living house amid their divorce proceedings — an insider revealed she had been allegedly "drinking every day while filming" The Wendy Williams Show up until her recent hospitalization.

On Thursday, September 9, The Wendy Williams Show host — who struggles with Graves' disease and Lymphedema — revealed she was putting a pause on working to deal with “ongoing health issues” and was “undergoing further evaluations.” Days later, the former radio jockey's team released a statement via her show's official Instagram account to share she tested positive for COVID-19.

Williams' brother, Tommy, has since given a health update, noting she is "stable" and "fighting" while working on her mental health.
