Wendy Williams demands money from Wells Fargo and blasts manager: “It’s not fair”

Wendy Williams wants her money – and for everyone to know “it’s not fair” that Wells Fargo is keeping her from it.
The talk show host is demanding answers after the bank froze her out of her account over claims she needs a guardian.
“My thing is that I’ve been asking questions about my money and when I begin asking questions about my money, suddenly Lori Schiller has got no response regarding my money. I want my money. This is not fair,” Williams, 57, said in a video posted to Instagram on Wednesday.
Schiller is Williams’ former financial adviser, who allegedly led Wells Fargo to freeze the talk show host’s 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,” she added.
“This is not right and this is not fair.”

Williams also addressed her former manager Bernie Young, whom she referred to as “this guy.”
“I know for a fact that Bernie Young used my American Express card to hire an attorney to file a petition against me. That was done with my American Express card,” she alleged.
On Wednesday, The Sun reported that Young filed to be her legal guardian “as she suffers serious health problems.” Williams did not address the report directly, but did have a stern message for Young: “You’re no good and this is not fair at all.”
As for her ongoing health issues? “Then there’s this person. This… A former doctor… had medical information about me that I never even got! It was sent over to Lori Schiller. So I haven’t gotten this stuff,” she claimed.
“I fired this doctor and, again, all I want to know is where is my money? This is not right! And certainly, this is not fair.”
Williams then blasted Wells Fargo for using “all this stuff to create the guardianship over me,” again saying, “This is not right and certainly this is not fair.”
Williams continued on, telling fans that she believes the New York Court system is “being weird to me.”
“Without evidence, they took all of this information and continued with what’s going on with me, based on what Well Fargo is doing,” she claimed.
Williams likened her situation to the “Kung-Fu judge case,” where a greedy lawyer pilfered over $600,000 from the estate of late Brooklyn Judge John Phillips.
“That’s not right and that is not fair,” Williams repeated.
She ended her video with a message to Schiller, Young and Wells Fargo: “Please let me have access to my money. This is not right, and again, this is not fair. Have a pleasant day. Thank you.”
A spokesperson for Wells Fargo previously denied “any allegations of improper actions with respect to Ms. Williams’ accounts.”
