‘The Breakfast Club’s resident host/DJ Charlamagne Tha God (born Lenard McKelvey) dropped a bombshell recently when he dished on his now dissolved relationship with former mentor/co-star Wendy Williams. McKelvey, who rose to fame as Williams’ controversial sidekick on her nationally syndicated radio show, has made no secret in the past about the deterioration of his professional and personal affiliation with the ‘Queen of All Media’ – a failure he blames on her husband, Kevin Hunter.
Now, as Wendy makes headlines for drug abuse relapses, emotional breakdowns, and coping with Hunter’s reported infidelity (click here to read more), McKelvey’s weighing in with some stinging criticism. Taking to our friends at Page Six, the famed DJ stated:
“The real rehab she needs is from Kevin Hunter.”

Beyond revealing that he introduced Kevin Hunter to his now reported mistress, Sharina Hudson, years ago, Charlamagne also revealed a few other jaw-dropping tidbits. Details below:
Famed New York “Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God — who was a mentee of Williams and a former pal of her husband — tells Page Six that his friendship with Hunter and Williams, who married in 1997, blew up over Sharina [Hudson].
Charlamagne claims that Hunter was unusually possessive over Hudson and furious with him for introducing her to other men. “Mind you, Kevin was married to Wendy at the time,” he said.“The reason Kevin Hunter and I fell out, and the reason why I don’t communicate with Wendy anymore is because of Sharina,” Charlamagne told us, describing an incident in 2009. “Kevin got upset because he thought Sharina liked one of my homeboys and he thought that I was hooking Sharina up [with other men].”
But he claims as Hunter became even more controlling, and started to push him out. Hunter eventually fired Charlamagne, telling him never to contact Williams again, allegedly saying, “You are dead to us.”
Charlamagne claims the hate didn’t stop there, however.
After that incident, Charlamagne said, “Kevin has literally gone out of his way to try to stop my livelihood, to cut my head off and stop me from other jobs. He has done it a couple of times. Kevin has definitely got a couple of cease and desist letters from my attorney.”
He added that Williams — whom friends have described as being totally under the control of her husband, who manages all of her affairs — hasn’t spoken to him since, and even denied knowing who he was during an interview with Elvis Duran.
