On Tuesday, Kevin Hunter Jr., son of talk show host Wendy Williams, entered a not guilty plea at his arraignment for assault, after a physical altercation with his father, Kevin Hunter St from May this year ended with charges.

The court hearing was regarding a physical altercation that Hunter, 18, got into with his father, Kevin Hunter Sr., in May of this year. The fight resulted in Kevin Sr. being punched in the face by his son in a New Jersey parking lot.

On May 22, a verbal argument escalated into a physical interaction between the two men. Allegedly, it became violent once Kevin Sr. told his son that Williams, 54, was "brainwashing" him. Kevin Sr. is reported to have put his son into a headlock, which resulted in the teenager punching his father in the face in order to get free, according to Popculture.com.

As reported by TMZ, Williams' son was eventually charged with assault even though his father had made it clear that he did not want to press charges.

After entering the not guilty plea, the prosecutor asked for more time to "review factors in the case," adding that he believes the issue will be resolved at the next hearing.

The event is said to have taken place as a result of the divorce that "The Wendy Williams Show" host and Kevin Sr. are currently going through, but in an unexpected turn of events, a source told TMZ that the interaction helped ease tensions between the two parents a bit. Following the incident, the two are said to have agreed to be cordial for their son's sake moving through the divorce.
