TMZ reported that Williams’ estranged husband Hunter and Kevin Jr. got into a physical altercation that resulted in the cops being called.
“I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally,” Hunter said in a statement to TMZ. “Things are not always how they appear.”
According to the outlet, Williams, 54, dropped Kevin Jr. off at her house, not knowing Hunter was there. Though she planned to return shortly, Kevin Jr. and Hunter reportedly ended up making a quick trip to a nearby store in the meantime.
