Wendy Williams responds to conservatorship after Wells Fargo says she’s ‘an incompetent person’

0

Wendy Williams posted a rambling video to her Instagram account on Wednesday afternoon as she pleaded with Wells Fargo bank to “return their money”.

During a three-minute long rant, she called out her former Wells Fargo financial adviser, Lori Schiller, and her former manager Bernie Young, 75, whom she fired earlier this year.

“My thing is, I asked about my money and suddenly Lori Schiller got no response regarding my money. I want my money, it’s not fair and Wells Fargo has no no questions or answers about my money. It’s not fair and Lori Schiller and Wells Fargo have this conservatorship petition to keep me out of my money, it’s not right!” started the 57-year-old TV host.

“I know for a fact that Bernie Young used my American Express card to hire an attorney to file a claim against me that was made with my American Express card. It’s not fair anymore,’ Williams continued, as she appeared to be in tears as she spoke about her former manager’s alleged actions.

“You’re no good and that’s not fair at all,” she said, lambasting Young.

Wendy Williams posted a rambling video on Instagram on Wednesday explaining that she wants access to her money and Wells Fargo is blocking her.

‘Then there is this person. This…a former doctor…had medical information about me that I never even had! It was sent to Lori Schiller. So, I didn’t have that thing,’ she claimed, briefly discussing her health issues.

“All I want to know is where is my money?” It’s not fair and certainly not fair,” Williams continued to repeat. ‘Wells Fargo used all of this to create a guardianship over me. The New York court system is weird to me.

“Without proof, they took all of this information and moved on with what’s happening with me, based on what Well Fargo is doing,” she claimed.

“It’s not fair… Wells Fargo, please let me have access to my money, it’s not fair and again, it’s not fair, have a nice day , thank you.”

On Wednesday it was revealed how Williams’ ex-manager asked to be his legal guardian.

According to The Sun, Young filed papers in New York court about two weeks ago in a case that was sealed despite him no longer being his manager and wanting “nothing to do with him”.

The bank claimed that Young was actually acting in its best interests.

Williams had filed an emergency petition against the bank to regain access to his accounts which allegedly contain millions of dollars.

This offer was also combined in his main conservatorship case.

Wells Fargo had described Williams as an “incapable person” who is the possible “victim of financial abuse”. The case was then sealed to the public.

Last month, an attorney for his bank, Wells Fargo, sent a letter to New York County Supreme Court Judge Arlene Bluth requesting a hearing to discuss his finances.

Williams’ former financial adviser Schiller claimed Williams was “sick of mind”, leading Wells Fargo to block the New Jersey-born presenter’s access to her accounts in mid-January.

Williams’ attorneys disputed Schiller’s request and accused Wells Fargo of exceeding their authority. A lawyer for the bank later clarified that it wanted a “temporary guardian or appraiser to review the situation and ensure that [Williams’] business is well managed.

The bank “has good reason to believe” that Williams is “a victim of undue influence and financial abuse,” according to a filing obtained by Page Six.

Williams said in an interview last Thursday that the bank froze her account for two months, preventing her from accessing her funds or paying her bills and mortgage.

Williams fans haven’t seen the host in her famous purple chair since July 2021.

The Wendy Williams Show, which was syndicated and aired on Fox-owned stations, was scheduled to return last September for its 13th season.

Williams’ return was delayed and ultimately canceled for the remainder of the season, after her team said she “experienced serious complications as a direct result of Graves’ disease and her thyroid condition”.

Graves’ disease is an immune system disorder that leads to hyperthyroidism. The disease often results in irritability, fatigue, weight loss, rapid heartbeat and bulging eyes, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Since going on hiatus, Williams has been seen being hand-carried to her New York apartment while wearing hospital socks and in a wheelchair.

On Thursday, she made it clear there was nothing to worry about.

‘Health is going very well. And I had a few dates. You know, I’m 57 now and I have the mind and body of a 25-year-old,’ she said.

Last month, production company Debmar-Mercury announced that The Wendy Williams Show would be officially canceled after a series of guests, including Whitney Cummings and Michael Rapaport, replaced the legendary gossip.

A spokesperson for Williams said she was assured that “if her health got to the point where she could host again and if it was her desire for her to host again, she would be back on television at that time”.

‘I am very comfortable. You know, my show mates, everybody ready,’ Williams said Thursday during an interview with Good Morning America, though she later clarified that she might need more time. .

“Well, give me about three months. There are private things I have to take care of and then I’ll be ready to come back and be free and ready to do my thing.

“I want to spend more time with my family. And, you know, working and waiting for answers to my financial situation and to Wells Fargo. And they don’t like it,” she said.

A member of Williams’ team hopped on the phone to further explain the situation.

“There was an internal person at Wells Fargo that Wendy was working with.

‘Wendy wanted her son to start coming in and having a bit more say and gaining a bit of knowledge about the inner workings of Wendy Williams, so whoever was there was going to lose some access to Wendy she had before and I don’t think she liked it,’ the team member said.

An insider source told The Sun that the health issues she’s facing mean she’s “not the same” personality who fronted her long-running TV show.

‘The spark is gone. This Wendy, who for ten years had that twinkle in her eye, that cheeky smile and that little wink isn’t the same now.

“It doesn’t always work like it used to. She has days when she needs help eating, getting out of bed and getting dressed. There are people Wendy knows, who have worked closely with her, and there are days when she has no idea who they are,’ the insider noted.
