In March 2018, when Wendy returned to her show after a two month hiatus she addressed the breakup rumor and insisted things between her and her husband were all good. “I'm still very much in love with my husband,” she told the audience. “Anybody who has been married for 5 minutes or 500 years, you know marriages have ebbs and flows.”

However, she also added, “Marriages are not easy. And don't ask me about mine until you see this ring gone.”

At the end of March, days after revealing she had been living in a sober facility, the former radio DJ was reportedly rushed to the hospital after members of her team found her drunk.

Wendy’s reported hospital visit came after news that Kevin’s alleged mistress Sharina Hudson got pregnant with his child.

A source told Page Six that addition to cheating, Kevin's alleged domestic abuse was also a factor in the split. “She would hide in the bathroom and tell me to knock on the door when he left the office so she wouldn’t have to see him," the source claimed before adding, "You’d hear slaps or some type of tussling going on between the pair behind closed doors."
