Meet Billy Hult, Allison Gollust Husband
Billy Hult is the former husband of Allison Gollust. No information on their marriage surfaced in the public domain. Everything from how they met, when did they get engaged, and about their quiet divorce, everything remains low-key. But, they reportedly shared two daughters Olivia Hult (born in 2011) and Ava Hult (born in 2014) with his ex-wife.
Back in December 2009, Billy and Allison made it to the Tribeca Citizen’s new in real estate section after selling their condo Unit #2E at 66 Leonard St. in Tribeca to Daniel Levene for $2,301,750 on Nov. 12. The condo was one of the 47 units in the 14-story Textile Building.
They had also made a public appearance in December 2008 while attending the ROOM TO GROW 10th Anniversary Benefit Gala in New York City.
Billy’s ex-wife, Allison recently made headlines after her affair with Jeff Zucker, President of CNN. Allison and Jeff claimed that their romance started during COVID. However, media sources revealed to DailyMail that romance predates the pandemic and was an open secret in the CNN offices. They reportedly lived in the same apartment building with their families.
They worked together at NBC and then worked for CNN for over 20 years. Some even called an ‘uncomfortably cozy’ rapport. Both of romantically involved are divorced and their splits were due in part to their relationship.
Allison confirmed the affair in a statement and said she will remain at the network in a statement released to the New York Times. She shared, “Jeff and I have been close friends and professional partners for over 20 years. Recently, our relationship changed during COVID. I regret that we didn’t disclose it at the right time. I’m incredibly proud of my time at CNN and look forward to continuing the great work we do every day.”
