Roommates, while we are unsure of the current state of Wendy Williams’ health, her bank is reportedly under the impression that she is unable to handle her financial affairs at this present time.
According to legal documents obtained by Page Six, Wells Fargo bank sent a letter to New York Supreme Court Judge Arie Bluth requesting a hearing to decipher whether or not Wendy needs assistance with handling her funds due to her health declining over the last few months.
“We are concerned about [Williams’] situation,” attorney David H. Pikus wrote on behalf of the bank. “It is our hope that the Guardianship part [of the court] will imminently appoint a temporary guardian or evaluator to review the situation and ensure that her affairs are being properly handled.”
Page Six reports that Wells Fargo’s request comes on the heels of Wendy’s attorney, Celeste N. McCaw, filing an emergency petition last Friday, claiming the bank had denied her access to her account for more than two weeks. Williams’ former financial adviser Lori Schiller alleged she was “of unsound mind,” which reportedly prompted the bank to restrict her access.
Pikus reportedly argued that Wells Fargo “has strong reason to believe” Wendy Williams is a “victim of undue influence and financial exploitation.”
A spokesperson for Wells Fargo released a statement on the matter after Williams’ attorney reportedly requested a temporary restraining order against the bank.
“We deny any allegations of improper actions with respect to Ms. Williams’ accounts and are fully participating in a court process to reach a resolution that is in her best interest. The financial well-being of our client is at the heart of everything we do.”
As we previously reported, Wendy Williams has taken a hiatus from hosting her talk show since July 2021 after revealing that she has been dealing with ongoing health issues.
