It turns out that Wendy Williams’ son also experienced drug usage. At the point when Kevin Hunter Jr. was around 14 years of age, he mishandled synthetic weed called K2.
“Our son, three years ago, he’s 17 now, he just graduated from high school, he’s leaving for college in September, but three years ago he smoked K2,” Williams, 54, told ET. “Now this is a drug, we see it on the news, people are walking around like zombies.”
Her child’s addiction changed him into somebody she didn’t perceive. “I was horrified. My son became someone I didn’t even know,” she shared, adding that she noticed changes in him, “Immediately, immediately. It zaps your brain immediately.”
She added, “Drugs have no income; drugs have no race or religion. Drugs are drugs and that K2 was really something else and you know I’m glad to say we were able to bring him back all the way around.”
The daytime anchor person additionally opened up about her decade-long fight with cocaine, which she created amid her years on radio.
“I was a functioning addict though,” Williams told ET. “I report to work on time, and I’d walk in and all my co-workers, including my bosses, would know, but since I would have my headphones on and walk in the studio and [they] wouldn’t fire me because I was making ratings.”
