Wendy Williams’ son Kevin allegedly spent $100K before bank froze talk show host's accounts
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Wendy Williams' son, Kevin Hunter Jr, had reportedly "spent $100,000 using his mother's American Express card" before Wells Fargo froze the talk show host's accounts. Wendy was prohibited from disposing of her estimated $20 million in assets.
Sources revealed to the US Sun that Kevin spent a huge sum at her expense before Wendy's accounts were frozen after her bank claimed in explosive court documents that she was a "victim of exploitation, dementia, or undue influence."

A source said, "Kevin Jr spent around $100,000 on Wendy's personal American Express card. This was her own AmEx specifically." The U.S. Sun reported that the card that the 22-year-old used was different than the card Wendy's manager Bernie Young had used to hire attorney Carolyn Wolf, as previously reported by the outlet.
The source also said that "Kevin was demanding that Wendy's advisor pay the bill- instead of Wendy." According to sources, there were several red flags that the accounts would be frozen.
While speaking to The US Sun, Kevin Jr said, "I vehemently deny any allegations of unauthorized use of my mother’s American Express Card. This is a false narrative perpetuated to justify freezing her accounts."
The 58-year-old's former attorney, LaShawn, told the outlet that she is no longer working with Wendy. However, she remains the attorney for Wendy's ex-husband Kevin Hunter, 49.
In the meantime, the former talk show host has had a rough time. After Wendy's accounts were frozen, she was expected to regain access to her accounts and American Express card in July after a financial guardian was appointed to monitor them.
It is unclear what led to Wendy not getting her accounts back by July, as all records were sealed after the case was moved to guardianship court. Wendy's manager Will confirmed to the US Sun that he is trying to help her manage the frozen accounts, "Whatever was supposed to happen in July with the accounts being unfrozen, didn't happen."
Wendy recently claimed that she was married to a police officer named Henry, but her manager denied this. In a recently released video, Wendy can be seen showing her ring to a fan. The fan asked Wendy, "What do you have to say for the camera?" To which Wendy replied, "He's out buying, getting stuff, waiting for him to come back."

Wendy has not hosted her own show since June, keeping a low profile due to health problems. The 58-year-old has been through a turbulent period in which her behavior has shocked her fans and well-wishers alike.
