Wendy Williams and soon-to-be ex-husband Kevin Hunter were not present in court when their son, Kevin Hunter Jr., faced arraignment for assault charges. The session took place in New Jersey on Tuesday (June 25) morning.

#Update : The hearing only lasted a few minutes and no action was taken. It's interesting the prosecutor needs more time on a fairly simple case, and it could be a sign of some sort of plea deal or, since Kevin Sr. has said he does not want to press charges, the case could be dismissed altogether. Kevin Jr. showed up in court and there was a change of plans, because neither of his parents showed up. He did not enter a plea … the prosecutor asked for a continuance so he'd have more time to review the case. #wendywilliams #kevinhunter #Kevinhunterjr 📸:TMZ
According to TMZ,
“Kevin Jr. showed up in court and there was a change of plans, because neither of his parents showed up. He entered a not guilty plea … and the prosecutor asked for more time so he’d have more time to review the case.
The prosecutor said he wanted to ‘review factors in the case’ and said he thought the case would be resolved at the next hearing. That screams plea bargain or outright dismissal of charges. As you know, Kevin Sr. has said he did not want to press charges.”
Kevin Hunter Jr. was arrested on assault charges last month after tensions allegedly reached an all-time high in a New Jersey parking lot. Some believe that little Kevin stepped in to defend his mother and, thus, hit his father as things continued to get heated.

#Wendywilliams says she will be right behind her son when he enters a court case on Tuesday after assaulting his Father last month. — Sources close to Wendy Williams claims that since the incident with their son things between her and ex-husband #Kevinhunter have cooled down, even though the divorce will still be happening. — Also, Wendy has apparently told a friend that “There’s still love between us, regardless of the divorce” adding onto that she goes on to say they are still friends. — Guys, do you think #Wendy should still remain friends or even civilised with #Kevin after everything he has put her through. — The next big question is would #you remain friends or even civilised with an ex-partner like Kevin? #themediatalks #latest #updates #celeb #gossip
Other sources, however, say that the argument was between the celebrity father and his son. Big Kevin reportedly told little Kevin that he needed to find his way in the world sans his mother’s influence and money. Such admonishment did not sit well with young Kevin given the scandal currently surrounding his father.
Wendy Williams filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter Sr. several weeks ago after his mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth to a child that many speculated belonged to Kevin. Wendy confirmed that her estranged husband did indeed father a child outside of their marriage when speaking with media the other week.
In an effort to show the world she's doing great & living life #WendyWilliams will burn herself down to ashes. She should be normal & free embrace when she's down just as when she's up. Pretending only adds pressure. She's not going through what other people haven't before.

“My husband had a full baby with a woman he was involved with for 15 years,” Wendy revealed. “[I was in a relationship] where I was cooped up only to be a show pony,” she added. “Now, I’m living my life,” Williams concluded.
Kevin Hunter Sr. did not press charges against his son for the alleged assault last month. Due to the nature of the incident, however, the state brought up charges against young Kevin for domestic violence. Stay tuned for more Wendy Williams news!
