Children of Former Talk Show Host Say Their Father All But Abandoned Them

Jan 18, 2010  •  Post A Comment

His TV talk show focused on family and social responsibility but in his personal life, Montel Williams is “like a stranger,” Williams’ children charged in an interview with the New York Daily News.

Williams and his ex-wife have been battling over custody of their two children, a boy and a girl, ages 16 and 14, respectively, for ten years. The children told the paper that while Williams, who now hosts a radio show and writes books, pays  $18,700 a month in child support, he doesn’t give them any emotional support. One said: "Everyone knows him as a great guy, but he’s not making the best choices as a parent."

Williams declined to comment to the paper, except to say that "I love my children very much. I do not believe parenting is best done in a public forum and I will not comment on ongoing legal action involving my minor children."
