Right around the time Sabrina Morrissey took charge of Wendy Williams’ finances, alimony payments to Kevin Hunter ceased. The former TV producer wants the payments reinstated, as well as back pay and bank documents.

At the hearing on April 19, Judge Michael Katz acknowledged that the situation was difficult. “It’s difficult for the parties, but also because of the physical, mental health, and financial issues, it’s difficult for both parties, and both parties need to have this resolved. I think this case needs to go to arbitration, but Mr. Hunter needs discovery,” he said.

Kevin Hunter Doesn’t Trust Financial Guardian

Agreeing with the judge, Hunter alluded to knowing how much money Wendy Williams made from the recent Lifetime docuseries. Then he accused Sabrina Morrissey of keeping the money from him, which is why she hasn’t come forward with bank documents.

“I understand why I’m here, but there were blatant lies that Ms. Morrissey is telling us, and we still haven’t seen the bank records. She’s supposed to give us access to the retirement accounts,” Kevin Hunter claimed in court.

He continued, saying that he didn’t trust Sabrina Morrissey and that he was “embarrassed” by the Lifetime docuseries Where Is Wendy Williams? “There has been gross negligence – as far as her being a guardian, I don’t trust this woman,” he stated.

“I am totally embarrassed by the production that was put on,” Hunter added. In her defense, Sabrina Morrissey said, “As far as I know, there was no show for half a million dollars – I disagree with Mr. Hunter’s statements.”

Judge Katz didn’t entertain either party’s arguments. He told them that no one would want to settle without all the information being provided, which Morrissey had neglected to do.

“I don’t know anything about that, but it seems to be that you have the consent of [Wendy] to get this resolved, and if Mr. Hunter was only offered two months of statements, it behooves him to know what’s out there and to give what’s been asked,” Judge Katz concluded.

They are expected to return to court in the next few weeks. However, a new judge will preside over the matter because Judge Michael Katz is retiring.
