Wendy Williams' Guardian Cuts Family Ties Amid $40 Million Dollar Fortune Grab

Sharee B.

Wendy Williams is a famous ex-talk show host that made her fortune as a tabloid gossip host as well as other lucrative business ventures. However, her current financial situation is no laughing matter.

Recently, the embattled entrepreneur has been appointed a financial guardian, ordered to serve out her best interests as she has amassed a fortune worth over $40 million dollars. Specializing in estate administration and guardianship, Morrissey has been tasked with the handling of Williams' assets for more than half of the year as she reportedly sufferers from dementia-induced financial exploitation.

Two of the people who stood to lose the most from the arrangement are William's ex-husband Kevin Hunter Sr and her adult son Kevin Hunter Jr.

Apparently, she had been paying an undisclosed amount of alimony each month, including a lump sum $250,000 payment. In addition, she was furnishing the rent for her son's $6,000 per month South Florida apartment.

Earlier in the year, she had a brief situation with Wells Fargo regarding access to her accounts that warranted further inquiry into her state of being. After her show was canceled earlier this year following mental health complications and physical illness issues, Williams is no longer receiving her prior salary of nearly $10 million annually.

Once the financial guardian discovered that the younger Kevin was no longer attending college, she determined that he was fully able to work for a living. As for her ex-husband, who fathered a child during their more than twenty year marriage, Williams' prenuptial agreement was honored which disallowed his alimony once she was no longer working.
