A source told People the alleged birth of Kevin's child with his mistress was the catalyst for Wendy's divorce filing.
The insider claimed the former radio DJ even took matters into her own hands. “She had hired a private investigator and confronted him. He confessed to everything three weeks ago.”
On Monday, April 15, Wendy told her talk show audience she would be moving out of her sober house and striking out “on her own.” Though she called the house one the of “best things” to happen to her, she said has a “whole new life planned” for her and son, Kevin Jr.
The source claimed that her husband's infidelity was a factor in her falling off the wagon. “All of the recent drama put a huge strain on Wendy and caused her to struggle with her sobriety as she did everything she could to try and save their marriage,” the insider said.
“The decision to split was terribly hard for her, but she’s regaining her health,” the source added. “She decided she needed to finally put herself first.”
