After pleading not guilty to allegedly assaulting his dad, Kevin Jr.’s case has been dismissed, Page Six confirmed. Kevin Jr., 18, appeared in court on Tuesday following his initial June 25 appearance.
The prosecutor reviewed the case and ultimately decided not to pursue charges.
Kevin Sr. attended the hearing and told the judge he agreed with the prosecutor’s decision not to pursue charges. Kevin Sr. made it clear from the beginning that he didn’t want to see his son in any legal trouble.
Williams didn’t attend the hearing because she taped her talk show live.
As Page Six exclusively revealed, Kevin Sr. and Kevin Jr.’s fight in a New Jersey store parking lot began after he called his father “a bitch.” It resulted in Kevin Jr.’s arrest for domestic violence simple assault.
According to a heavily redacted police report Page Six obtained, responding officers were told that the situation escalated after Kevin Jr.’s comment, causing Kevin Sr. to strike his son “with a closed fist to the face,” which Kevin Sr. later denied.
The two were separated by a bystander, and Kevin Jr. proceeded to call his mother, who was not present. The family’s home is located in nearby Livingston, NJ, though Williams has moved to New York City since filing for divorce.
Kevin Jr. had no signs of injury or complaints of pain and refused medical attention following the incident.
Maybe this is the first step in family healing.
