Wendy Williams and her team have had ENOUGH of her bank gossiping about her presumed mental health struggles.
The talk show host celebrated the Super Bowl over the weekend in hopes to squash any negative rumors floating around.
She wore short shorts with a black, cropped sweater and was all smiles at her home.
Recently, The Blast reported on Wendy’s financial institution’s concerns over her financial affairs.
Wells Fargo believes Wendy is “incapacitated” and needs “guardianship.”
Wendy’s Financial Institution Believes She’s “Incapacitated.”
According to legal documents, Wells Fargo sent a letter to a New York County judge requesting a hearing to determine whether William needs someone to legally take care of her financial affairs. As you know, Wendy has been battling medical issues in the past few months and has been absent from her daytime television show.
In the letter, an attorney for the bank states, “We are concerned about [Wendys’] situation, It is our hope that the Guardianship Part [of the courts] will immediately appoint a temporary guardian or evaluator to review the situation and ensure that [Wendys’] affairs are being properly handled.”
Last week, Wendy’s own former financial adviser, Lori Schiller, reportedly alleged ‘The Wendy Willams Show’ host was of “unsound mind.” Plus, the Wells Fargo attorney claims Lori had “recently witnessed signs of exploitation, including [Wendys’] own expressed apprehensions” about the people who are in her life. He added, “other independent third parties who know [Wendys] well…share these concerns.”
Wells Fargo Has Concerns
Now, Wendy’s legal team is speaking out about the misconstrued reports.
In a statement to Page Six, her lawyer said, “Wendy wants the world to know that she strenuously denies all allegations about her mental health and well-being.”
Wendy’s lawyer, LaShawn Thomas, explained his client [Wendy] has spent this time away from her daytime talk show employing “holistic health professionals to help her reach optimal health during her treatment of Graves’ disease and thyroid concerns.”
Thomas also insisted his client is “fine” and “sound of mind.”
The statement continued, “She is disappointed about falsely circulated statements from an industry she has devoted her life to. Wendy is grateful for the love and the outpouring of support she has received from her fans, and she can’t wait to get back. She thanks everyone who has been patiently awaiting her return and believes that, thanks in large part to the love and support of her son, her family, her new team of doctors and a change of scenery, she is on the mend.”
Wendy Is Disappointed About Falsely Circulated Statements
The talk show host’s attorney filed an emergency petition on February 4, claiming Wells Fargo had “for more than two weeks” denied her access to her own “financial accounts, assets and statements” following the allegations from her financial advisor. In a response to the letter, Wendy’s legal team says she “denies that she is a victim of undue influence and financial exploitation.”
Plus, Wendy’s team is asking that Wells Fargo be stopped from “freezing her accounts and interfering with her right to access her financial assets and statements.”
“I have submitted multiple written requests to Wells Fargo and I have visited various Wells Fargo branches in the South Florida area in an effort to resolve this matter outside of the courtroom. I have defaulted and I am at risk of defaulting on several billing and financial obligations, including, but not limited to, mortgage payments and employee payroll,” Wendy wrote.
