Sources close to the former daytime talk show host exclusively disclosed to The U.S. Sun that Kevin ran up a massive tab on her dime in the months before Wendy’s brokerage accounts with supposed millions of dollars were frozen in January.
Before Wells Fargo froze Wendy Williams’ bank accounts, her son Kevin Hunter Jr. allegedly spent $100,000 on his mother’s credit card.
According to a recent report, Wendy Williams’ son used her credit card to spend $100,000 before Wells Fargo froze her accounts.
According to The Sun, Kevin Hunter Jr. charged thousands of dollars to his mother’s personal American Express card. His activity allegedly factored into Wells Fargo’s decision to freeze Wendy Williams’ accounts.
In a statement with The Sun, Kevin Hunter Jr. denied any wrongdoing.
“I vehemently deny any allegations of unauthorized use of my mother’s American Express Card,” he said. “This is a false narrative perpetuated to justify freezing her accounts.”
Wendy Williams’ accounts were frozen by Wells Fargo based on suspicions of “financial exploitation, dementia or undue influence.”
A financial guardian took control of her accounts in May.
“Wells Fargo’s priority is the financial well-being of Ms. Williams and the preservation of her privacy,” a Wells Fargo rep told The Sun.
As per AllHipHop, Wendy Williams blamed the ongoing money issues on Lori Schiller, her former financial adviser, earlier this year. The financial adviser allegedly deemed the talk show host to be of “unsound mind.”
“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,” Wendy Williams said in March. “I want my money. This is not fair.”
