It was previously announced that Wendy Williams would soon have access to her millions” after a court “appointed a financial guardian over her bank accounts.”

An attorney for the “How You Doin’?” host told Page Six in a statement Friday that Williams doesn’t want anyone but her to have control of her money in response to The Sun’s report about a judge’s decision to appoint a guardian.
“Please be advised that Wendy is not in agreement with the appointment of a financial guardian by the court. Wendy has been very clear that she does not want a financial guardian to tell her what she can and cannot do with her money,” La’Shawn Thomas said.
Thomas added that the talk show host, 57, “feels that she is capable” of hiring her own team who would work for her “and not the court.”
Thomas went so far as to suggest that Wells Fargo may have leaked the report “in an attempt to lessen the public outcry and regulatory scrutiny mounting around” the bank.
It is not yet known who has been appointed as Williams’ financial guardian, but in March, the shock jock accused her former manager Bernie Young of using her American Express card to hire an attorney to file a petition against her.
Young’s petition to become her financial guardian came after Willams’ former financial advisor Lori Schiller allegedly led Wells Fargo to freeze her account after claiming she was of “unsound mind” to handle her affairs.
“Wells Fargo has no questions and answers regarding my money. This is not fair. And Lori Schiller and Wells Fargo has this guardianship petition about keeping me away from my money,” Williams said in a video posted to social media.
“This is not right and this is not fair.”
A spokesperson for Wells Fargo previously denied “any allegations of improper actions with respect to Ms. Williams’ accounts.”
