Wendy Williams Smiles In NYC… Days Before Ex-Financial Adviser Said She Was Left In A ‘Mess’
Wendy Williams looked in high spirits on her latest late-night run in the Big Apple.
The former talk show star was seen in tight shorts and a tied-up high shirt as she made her way to a store.
This happened just days before her former financial manager, LaShawn Thomas said that the 58-year-old was ‘left to die.’
However, Williams seemed to be in a great mood during her late-night trip to New York.
According to reports, Williams was left with no choice but to pay her bills using her American Express card after she was denied access to her bank accounts by Wells Fargo.
This happened at the start of the year, due to a claim that she needs someone to look after her following her fight with graves disease, which has allegedly left her with an unstable mind, as per Lori Schiller, Williams’ ex-financial advisor.
Schiller has been in charge of paying Williams’ bills and authorize any other payments in the final days of her talk show, Thomas shared.
‘They left Wendy to die,’ Thomas said.’
‘Wendy, a woman who has worked hard for her wealth, was left penniless.’
Thomas also told Page Six that the former star cannot even see her own account balance, and has had to use her credit cart to purchase flight tickets for appointments with the doctor.
To make matters even heavier, Williams is currently involved in a legal dispute with Schiller after she allegedly made false claims saying that Williams’ son Kevin Hunter Jr., took advantage of her AmEx card and splashed out $100,000.
The 22-year-old has been by his mother’s side throughout her ordeal.
‘He coordinated all her appointments, made sure she attended all appointments, cooked, and cleaned for his mother,’ Thomas said.
‘I vehemently deny any allegations of unauthorized use of my mother’s American Express card,’ Hunter told the US Sun. ‘This is a false narrative perpetuated to justify freezing her accounts.’
Thomas added that Schiller has given money to the boy from his mom’s account anytime he was in need.
At one point, Schiller was given the task to help buy Hunter a Miami condo after she promised his mother that she could bypass commission fees.
However, eventually the boy was informed that his lease was up and did not receive an offer from Schiller, which drove the price of the condo up by an extra $250,000.
The mother tried to sort out the problem, but Schiller refused her authorization.
Schiller would only be willing to talk to Williams face to face, with no lawyers around, but the two never met in Miami as planned.
‘Instead, [Schiller] locked Wendy out of all her accounts,’ Thomas shared. ‘[Schiller] restricted all access to every single account. Wendy was even restricted from going to the bank and personally withdrawing funds.’
Williams has been involved in a case against the bank since earlier in 2022 and her lawyer has even written to New York County Supreme Court Judge Arlene Bluth requesting a hearing over her finances and saying that she is in need of a guardian.
The lawyer has denied claims made by Schiller that Williams is mentally unstable.
Bank representatives have said they have ‘strong reason to believe’ that Williams is ‘the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation,’ according to Page Six.
Back in March, Williams claimed that she has not been able to pay her mortgage and towering bills since she cannot access her finances.
