Wendy Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter is suing production company Debmar-Mercury for wrongful termination from The Wendy Williams Show.

In court documents obtained by ABC News, Hunter claims his firing was based strictly upon his marital status. He also believes that Sherri Shepherd’s upcoming Debmar-Mercury-produced daytime show will benefit from concepts he created for The Wendy Williams Show.

Per the document, Hunter seeks “compensatory, punitive damages, an award of costs, interest and attorney’s fees, and such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.”

Actress Laverne Cox took to Instagram Live on Wednesday to address the joke she made about “entanglements” to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on Sunday’s SAG Awards carpet.

“I’ve been thinking about it…No one is above critique, I like to hold myself accountable… I think my error was, I had so much I wanted to say to the Smiths,” the actress said. “This is not an apology, if the Smiths need an apology from me, I’ll find out privately and I’ll do that privately.”

In an effort to wrap up her SAG pre-show interview with the couple, she mentioned, “We can’t wait for more Red Table Talk and more, more entanglements.”

She was immediately scrutinized on social media; fans thought the joke was untimely and unnecessary.

Kanye’s new music video features an unlikely co-star — Pete Davidson. Sort of. The 44-year-old rapper released the music video for his new song “Easy,” and posted it on his Instagram page for his 15 million followers to watch him bury a cartoon version of Davidson.

“God saved me from that crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a**,” Ye says in the song of his ex Kim Kardashian‘s new boyfriend.
