Wendy Williams is opening up about a very personal situation involving her son using synthetic drugs. Find out what she said and how she handled the news inside…
No parent wants to find out their child has been dibbling and dabbling with drugs. But unfortunately for Wendy Williams, that became her truth over the summer.
The media mogul returned for the 7th season of her daytime talk show “The Wendy Williams Show” yesterday. And didn’t waste any time sharing with her fans how her summer went.
While she enjoyed a few vacations and hitting the stage on her comedy tour, she also had to deal with some shocking news involving her 15-year-old son Kevin Jr.
If you’re a fan of the show, you know Wendy always talks about her son Kevin and what it’s like raising a teenager. From what we know, she’s pretty hands on and doesn’t take much ish. So we were taken aback to find out her son had become addicted to drugs.
Before opening her Hot Topics segment, Wendy revealed her son was hooked on synthetic weed (sometimes called “spice”). She said
“So… the most important thing that happened this summer, which was a life-changing thing for the Hunter family, is our son was made exposed to synthetic marijuana and he was exposed by a loved one who he looked up to.”
And get this! Wendy didn’t suspect a thing because they make these pens where you don’t see the smoke when using it. It also allows teens to inhale the drug without leaving a smell behind.
She added, “I was duped and my kid had been smoking this mess and he got turned out to the point that he went off the rail for a moment.”
Yikes! Once Wendy got wind of her son’s activities, she and her husband Kevin Sr. sent their son out of the country to have a holistic detox to cleanse his body. (Y’all know she’s not here for actual rehab as she has stated previously she didn’t need rehab to get herself off of drugs.)
That synthetic weed is nothing to mess around with. According to the CDC, side effects from taking the dug includes agitation, tachycardia, drowsiness or lethargy, vomiting and confusion. A reported 15 deaths have occurred as a result of taking the “drug.”
Now, Little Kev’s back home and, as Wendy says, is doing better than ever. The talkshow queen said she and her family decided together to share this situation in hopes that it would bring awareness and help other families in the same situation.
Glad Kevin Jr. found the help he needed before it was too late.
