Wendy Williams has filed for divorce from husband and manager Kevin Hunter.

Let us remind you — lovebscott.com exclusively told you Wendy and Kevin were headed for divorce back in December, despite Wendy’s public denial.

The daytime talk show host filed for divorce Thursday after two decades of marriage, a source tells PEOPLE.

Williams, 54, and Hunter, 46, wed on Nov. 30, 1997, and share son Kevin Jr., 18.

The breakup news comes after a difficult time for the TV personality, who recently revealed that she was living in a sober house. (She has long been open about her past addiction to cocaine.)

And she took an extended hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show from January until March, saying she needed to recover from a fractured shoulder and take care of herself due to her battle with Grave’s disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid.

In 2017, Williams told PEOPLE that Hunter had been a pillar of strength as she grappled with her diagnosis.

“My husband was extremely concerned,” she said. “He’s not just my husband, he’s my business partner, one of the executive producers on the show and he’s also my manager. He and I are glued at the hip.”

“He was with me every step,” she added. “For him, seeing me go through all of this, it’s really been trying on him. I’ve been concerned about him. I’m like, ‘Don’t worry about me!’”

It’s about time. Hopefully Wendy can now focus on getting her life back on track.
