RadarOnline reported that Williams has been stashing away money in a secret account, but the source article they linked to is no longer active.

But according to Radar citing the deleted The National Enquirer article, Williams, 59, allegedly registered an alternative account. Besides Radar, several other outlets also picked up the story.

“Wendy has secretly opened up a new bank account to divert any money she makes moving forward away from Wells Fargo, where they froze her accounts when her financial adviser told them she was of ‘unsound mind,'” the supposed source told The National Enquirer.

In addition to the secret account, the source also told The National Enquirer that Williams is trying to sell personal items to friends to spring clean, “but she doesn’t know her account number and refuses to accept checks. It’s a mess!”

Aside from selling her personal possessions to individuals in her social circle, as The New York Post reported in March, the fire sale itself, including her purple “Hot Topics” chair, might suggest financial pressure.

The Ex and Money Woes

As Finurah previously reported, Kevin Hunter, Williams’ ex-husband, has been lamenting about his financial situation as he is selling his $1.2 million Florida house.

The selling of his property —- a five-bedroom, five-bathroom, 3,425-square-foot home in Parkland, Florida —- comes soon after a judge denied his plea for continuous alimony from Williams.

Hunter paid $795,000 for the house in 2020 after relocating to Florida following the finalization of his divorce from Williams in January 2020. In February 2022, he was getting monthly alimony payments. He went to court in December 2022 to request that the payments be reinstated.

Williams, whose net worth is $20 million, lives in a New York penthouse that is worth between $3 million and $4.5 million.

Blocked Accounts

As Finurah reported, Williams does not having direct control over her own money due to a financial guardianship, which she has been fighting.

Many people, including Williams’ supporters and those close to her, have become concerned about her recent actions and choices.

In June, Williams’ manager, Will Selby, confirmed that she was entering a wellness facility to continue her treatment for severe alcohol abuse. The turning point occurred after Williams’ son, Kevin Hunter Jr., expressed concerns about his mother’s wellbeing.

“Does anybody even ask like, ‘How’s she doing? Does anyone even care … I feel like everyone just puts out negative information about her and that’s the focus,” Selby said in a statement recently. “Just understand that she’s a human being that’s going through a lot. She’s dealing with a lot and support her, please.”

    This is NoONES buisness about her finances. If people don’t have nice things to say leave Wendy alone

  2. Dan Harms says:

    I am so saddened by what Wendy is going through and I wish i could help in any way possible there are a lot of good and positive things about her that are admirable and respectful. She’s a good woman on a bad path and I hope she finds the help, love and support she needs to overcome the terrible troubles she is in I just wish there was something I could do to help her.

  3. Sylvia Brown says:

    Wendy seems to be suffering with “dimensia”, alcoholism and depression. I feel no one in authority is addressing these or any of her real problems. I pray that her concerns are met soon and recovey comes along with it. Be blessed Wendy, I love you!!

  4. Quentin Taylor says:

    I have watched one of the documentary shows. It appears that the people that were displayed are only there because she has money. It seems that no one is even attempting to try to get her the type of treatment she needs. The conditions have been diagnosed but why hasn’t anything been push forward. It appears she need professional help.
