Wendy Williams was ‘left for dead’ by Wells Fargo bank | Entertainment
Wendy Williams was “left for dead” by Wells Fargo, her lawyer has claimed.
The 58-year-old star – who ran ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ for more than a decade until 2021 when she stepped down due to her ongoing issues with Graves’ autoimmune disease – is embroiled in a battle with Wells Fargo who froze her assets and claimed she was ‘unfit’ – and now her attorney LaShawn Thomas has claimed they’ve even denied her the ‘right to check her bank balance’.
LaShawn told PageSix: “The real problem is that Wells Fargo, through its advisor, refused to grant Wendy access to her own accounts, which includes the right to check her balance. No bank should have the power to do so. No one attempted to access any of Wendy’s accounts. The Wells Fargo adviser and [former manager Bernie Young] were the only people with access. … They left Wendy to die.
The lawyer added that Wendy – who has 21-year-old son Kevin Jr. with ex-husband Kevin Hunter, but who recently married a New York Police Department officer named Henry – had to using an American Express credit card for ‘all of his living expenses’ and explained that recent reports that his son had ‘unauthorized’ $100,000 charged to his card were unfounded as he coordinated all of his appointments -you.
He added: “He coordinated all her appointments, made sure she attended all appointments, cooked and cleaned for her mother. He absolutely loves her mother without a doubt, and no one should reproach him or allege wrongdoing.”
In May, Wendy was assigned a financial guardian in order to have “access
to his millions”.
Wendy previously said: “Wells Fargo has no questions or answers about my money. It’s not fair. And Lori Schiller and Wells Fargo
have this guardianship petition to keep me away from my money. It’s not right and it’s not fair.”
