Wendy Williams and her son Kevin Hunter, Jr. flew to Chicago, Ill. to attend the Sweets & Snacks Expo on Wednesday.
A rep for the convention confirmed to Page Six on Thursday that Kevin Jr. was with his mom at Wednesday’s event, just hours after he was released from jail for allegedly punching his father, Kevin Hunter.
The rep tells Page Six Kevin Jr. did not participate in any events and was solely a guest of his mom’s, as she was there representing the brand Candy Pop – which was a sponsor of the soon-to-be-dissolved Hunter Foundation.
As Page Six reported, Kevin Jr. was arrested early Wednesday after his father put him in a headlock in a store parking lot in West Orange, New Jersey. A source told Page Six he spent less than an hour behind bars before being released from custody.
The fight started after Kevin Sr. reportedly urged his son “to carve his own path to success” and stop looking to his mom for “handouts.”
The argument continued into Wednesday, when Kevin Jr. criticized his dad for requesting spousal and child support from Wendy.
Kevin Sr. declined to press charges against his son.
On Wednesday, Kevin Sr. told TMZ, “I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear.”
