Rumors have been swirling around Hollywood for the past few months that Wendy Williams, 54, would be divorcing her husband Kevin Hunter, 46, who allegedly recently fathered a child with side chick, Sharina Hudson. But did the addiction problems lead to her divorce? Hunter serves as Williams' manager and is also a producer on her show.

Williams and Hunter have been married for over 20 years after tying the knot in 1997, and they share a 19-year-old son.

Her attorney, Mary Vidas, says the papers were filed in Essex County, New Jersey, where the talk show diva has a home. Insiders tell the site that Wendy chose to file after he told her about his actions weeks ago. She opened up to fans back in March that she had been staying in a sober living facility to help get ahead of her addiction problems. At first, she told fans she was recovering from a fractured shoulder and suffering from Graves' disease.

Things in Williams' life have not been easy this year. "Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years".

Hunter did not return PEOPLE's request for comment.

Reports of the divorce come amid infidelity rumours although Williams did deny the reports on her show earlier this year and assured people that her wedding ring would always be on her finger.

Anyone who has ever been married know that marriages require a lot of work and a ton of trust.

"We wish her the best", Sara Gilbert concluded. And putting her life back together includes getting rid of anybody toxic - specifically, her husband.

Williams wrote in her memoirs that Hunter cheated on her in the beginning of their marriage. It's unclear when the divorce will be finalized, but Williams' friends are reportedly rallying around her.
