A petition was issued asking the court to restore access to her Wells Fargo bank account.
Wendy Williams has asked a New York court to restore her access to a bank account that was frozen amid talks about the media personality’s ongoing health issues.
According to court documents obtained by The Jasmine Brand, Williams filed a petition asking a judge to urge Wells Fargo to restore her access to an account with millions of dollars.
“Wells Fargo’s actions and the actions of its agents have impeded and unlawfully prevented [Williams] access to her property,” the petition stated.
Court records show that Williams has been locked out of her account for two weeks and has suffered “imminent and irreparable financial damage,” as a result.
The petition also notes that Wells Fargo made an agreement with Williams to “pause or reject instructions for a proposed transaction” if the company suspects “financial exploitation, dementia, or undue influence.”
BET previously reported that Williams’ brother, Thomas Williams Jr., denied the rumors that his sister was suffering from dementia back in Nov. 2021.
“We haven’t had any alerts like that and I haven’t seen anything like that or have had conversations with her that would lead me to believe that,” Tommy Williams Jr. said.
Further in the documents, the petition asked the court to reopen frozen accounts or assets and to allow her access to “any accompanying statements, currently identifiable as accounts and/or policies which contain funds that were removed and/or withheld.”
LexAnn Media will certainly keep the queen of daytime gossip in our prayers.
In The Meantime And Between Time Rumors Are Swirling For The Next Host Who Will Be Asking, “How You Doin’?“
Deadline is reporting that: Sherri Shepherd is finalizing a deal to become a permanent host on The Wendy Williams Show, sources tell Deadline. A rep for the syndicated daytime talk show’s producer, Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, declined comment.
Along with fellow actor Michael Rapaport, Shepherd emerged as the lead guest hosts on the show, filling in on a regular basis for Williams since the beginning of the 13th season as the veteran talk show host took time off to recover from a variety of health issues.
This would mark Shepherd’s return to being a full-time daytime talk show host following her stint as co-host of The View.
