I really hate reporting on Wendy Williams at this point. It’s just so very sad and we don’t need anymore sad news in this world. But it is what it is. And now things are to the point that Wells Fargo Bank has frozen her accounts and is requesting that New York County Supreme Court Judge Arlene Bluth requesting a hearing to determine whether Wendy Williams needs a conservator to intervene in her affairs. The petition states that they have concerns about recent financial transactions on behalf of Wendy. The bank is concerned by recent transactions and seems to have frozen her accounts for the past two weeks hoping to get a third party to assess the situation.
The decision by Wells Fargo comes after Wendy’s former financial advisor, Lori Schiller, informed the bank that she was not of sound mind. Additionally Wells Fargo’s petition also states that they have strong reason to believe Wendy is “the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation.” They also stated that Schiller had “recently witnessed signs of exploitation, including Williams’ own expressed apprehensions” about the people around her. Additionally, other independent third parties who know Wendy well have expressed concerns. Which begs the question, why is Wells Fargo having to step up for Wendy? Where are the concerned people who know her well and what are they doing about his situation?
Why Is The Bank The Only One Seeking Help For Wendy Williams?
To muddy the water even further, Wendy’s lawyer, Celeste McCaw, responded to the filing by saying that Wendy herself denies that she is the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation. McCaw also requested a temporary restraining order against Wells Fargo to restrain the bank from freezing Wendy Williams accounts and interfering with her right to access her financial assets and statements.
Look, I don’t know Wendy, I have not been around Wendy and I am not a psychiatrist. But, it has seemed very clear to me for MONTHS that she is mentally unwell. She doesn’t seem to be getting the care she needs. And I don’t know who all of these people are who have been around her for all of these months, but they don’t seem to really be helping her. Where is her family? Why haven’t they come up from Florida to help her? It’s just getting worse and worse and sadder and sadder.
