Wendy Williams‘ former attorney is questioning the care the former talk show host has been receiving since she was put under guardianship in May 2022.

The 59-year-old has since been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia, the same condition as Bruce Willis, 58,  which affects her ability to speak, read and write.

The diagnosis was made in 2023, but only revealed recently.

The shock jock’s former manager, LaShawn Thomas, shared a video of the DJ  when she was still living with her son, Kevin Hunter Jr. Thomas, claiming it was shot two weeks before Wendy was forced to go back to New York by the guardianship. 

The reality star was sitting in a bed, drinking a smoothie and explaining why she liked to go to the gym.

‘While Wendy was in Miami with her son, I would often witness candid moments of their Mother and Son dynamic,’ the Miami Entertainment Law Group founder wrote. 

‘I could tell that he loves his mother so much, and as you can see, the feeling was mutual.’

She continued, explaining, ‘You can clearly see the difference between Wendy’s well-being during her time here in Florida with her son caring for her and her lack thereof in New York under this “guardianship,”‘ she stated. 

The Wendy Williams Experience star was first placed under guardianship by her bank, Wells Fargo, but the conservatorship has since been moved to attorney Sabrina Morrissey.  

In comparing the Think Like a Man actress’ condition when she was with her son to  the frail person Wendy seems to be now, the lawyer maintained, ‘These Wendys are not the same.’ 

Clips from an upcoming Lifetime documentary, which began shooting in August 2022, shortly after Wendy was forced to move back to New York for the guardianship, show a frail and erratic woman.

Parts one and two of the film debuted on the network Saturday. Parts three and four were scheduled to be released Sunday.   

‘How did her health deteriorate so quickly, and why isn’t her only child allowed to be by her side,’ Thomas asked, admonishing someone to come forward and ‘ASK THE HARD QUESTIONS!’

The attorney alleged she had been ‘threatened with physical and financial harm’ if she spoke out about the care Wendy is receiving, but ‘just couldn’t keep silent any longer.’

Although they allowed the documentary to be shot, Wendy’s guardians went to court two days before the scheduled debut, seeking to prohibit the network from airing Where is Wendy Williams?

Variety called the series ‘unsettling and exploitative.’

Although crews were allowed to shoot the docuseries, Wendy’s guardian went to court to prevent it from airing two days ahead of the February 24 release date. Lifetime went ahead and began showing the film which Variety called ‘unsettling and exploitative’

‘While William’s cognitive deterioration is pronounced here, what’s most devastating about Where Is Wendy Williams? is the apparent loneliness that she feels,’ wrote reviewer Aramide Tinubu.

‘A forceful separation from her family, lack of funds and a platform appear to have only exasperated her issues.’

After Thomas made her post many of Wendy’s fans suggested they form a ‘Free Wendy’ movement, inspired by the ‘Free Britney’ movement that helped release  the singer from her 13-year conservatorship. 

‘This is extremely sinister and seems bigger and deeper,’ contended one follower. ‘Who is willing and had to fight against this machine? No one deserves this at all.’
