Cape Town - Almost a week after saying she’s amicably working through her divorce with Kevin Hunter, TV host Wendy Williams has been thrust into the middle of a family drama after her 18-year-old son, Kevin Jnr, was arrested for punching his father in the face.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning a fight broke out between father and son at a store’s parking lot in New Jersey, reports TMZ.

A source close to the family told the publication the fight started after an argument about Kevin Snr wanting spousal support from Wendy took place. Kevin Jnr then punched his dad in the nose to break a headlock his father had put him in, the source alleged.

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey confirmed to E! News that Kevin Jnr was arrested and charged with simple assault. The police department also confirmed there was an ongoing investigation into the matter.

Kevin Snr told TMZ he wouldn’t be pressing charges.

"I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear."
