Entertainment And News

After her divorce from Kevin Hunter — wherein she was publicly humiliated when he got his "side chick" pregnant — Wendy Williams seems to be moving on and moving up. Fans were concerned about her, for a moment, especially when she took some time off from her beloved show to recuperate from the break-up. 

But now, it seems, she's back on her feet, and possibly dating again!

So who is Wildaboss, and is he Wendy Williams' new boyfriend? Let's look at what we know about him. 

1. Who is Wildaboss? His real name is William Selby. 

Wildaboss, whose real name is William Selby, is a celebrity jeweler whose client list includes Drake, Rick Ross, 50 Cent, and Fabolous. A former CAD Graphics designer, the Brooklyn native got his start working with another notable jeweler, David Da Jeweler, before striking out on his own. He frequently shares his custom designs on his very popular Instagram pages.

2. He had dinner with Wendy Williams in New York City. 

Two nights ago, Williams and Selby were out and about on the town in New York City when they were spotted having dinner at the popular Aroma Trattoria. Williams documented hints of their date on Instagram, first by posting a photo of the car that Selby sent for her, then posting a photo of the plate they'd shared for dinner. But it was the photo she shared with herself and Selby checking out an independent rap artist together that really got the blogosphere talking. You can check it out below. 

3. Williams just finalized her divorce from Kevin Hunter. 

On January 22, 2020, Williams and Hunter were fully, legally divorced. The couple cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split. In the settlement, Hunter is entitled to get $1 million from Williams' life insurance settlement (though she has the right to decrease the number as years go on), and Williams is responsible for covering Hunter's health insurance. The couple will split the proceeds of the sale of their home, and in exchange, Williams keeps all the money in the joint checking account and retains sole ownership of her show and all ancillary licensing.

4. She filed for divorce from Hunter after he got his side chick pregnant. 

Rumors about Hunter's infidelity towards Williams had been circulating in the industry for many years but it was only after he got his side chick, Sharina Hudson, pregnant, that the truth came out. When she gave birth to a baby girl, it was revealed that Hunter was the father, which prompted Williams to file for divorce. 

5. Selby has known Williams for a while.

It's unclear how long Selby and Williams have known each other but Selby frequently acknowledges Williams on his social media pages. Back in October 2019, he congratulated Williams for her Hollywood Walk of Fame star. So, it's clear that the duo have been friends for a while.

6. But Williams says they're just friends. 

“I had an interesting weekend. It was all innocent to me but apparently it caused waves everywhere else. All I’m doing is being Wendy. So I met this young man that I really like. Not in that way, I was setting you up with dramatic effect. I was only at the studio for 35 minutes. I was with my friend, who is also my jeweler, Will. But and whatever, here is the big [scoop]. Will is my friend, he happens to be a jeweler. No, we did not plan to dress alike. A lot of you all said we looked like a couple. No, we’re not a couple,” she said. “I got on a beige negligee and threw on that [coat]. It was cold out. And then we get in the studio and I put it on my ‘gram.”
