It turns out, that he didn’t stay away because he was too busy or didn’t want to come. He kept away after being banned by Williams’ estranged husband Kevin Hunter, which the talk show host explained.
“He hasn’t been here in three or four years,” said Williams during a segment on beauty products. “I’m like, ‘Where have you been?’ He goes, ‘Your husband banned me because he thought I was flirting with you.'”
“Are you serious, Kevin?” she continued. “Attention, Wendy staff, new rules. It’s a new day.”
“Who are you flirting with?” asked Williams. And then she made a gesture of a baby bump with her hand.
The two got married in 1997 and have a 19-year-old son named Kevin Hunter Jr.
Since the breakup, Williams stated that Hunter has been slow to sign the divorce papers, and when he does they’ll remain friendly in the interest of their son.
“Kevin is very insecure and weak af,” someone wrote on Instagram about the Gibson situation. “He can buy his side chick a house in the same neighborhood but Wendy cant flirt with fine black chocolate on tv? Girl enjoy your divorce.”
“Lmaooo the baby bump she petty 😭,” another person wrote.
