Wells Fargo freezes Wendy Williams account claims she is ‘Incapacitated’ and needs a guardianship


After Wendy Williams fired her Wells Fargo-affiliated financial adviser, Lori Schiller, the bank froze her bank account. And on Thursday Wells Fargo is claiming the TV star is an “incapacitated” person who needs guardianship. It hasn’t been disclosed, so far, if the bank is suggesting someone for the role.

The move came after Williams’ attorney Celeste N. McCaw filed an emergency petition last Friday claiming Wells Fargo had “for more than two weeks” denied the TV host, 57, access to her “accounts, assets and statements.” 

McCaw requested a temporary restraining order against Wells Fargo to restrain the bank “from freezing [Williams’] accounts and interfering with her right to access her financial assets and statements.”
