Wendy Williams has given a representative Power of Attorney to help her gain access to her frozen account at Wells Fargo Bank.

Wendy, 57, says Wells Fargo froze her bank account containing over $3 million after her former accountant told bank officials she had dementia and was being taken advantage of by others.

According to RhymeswithSnitch, bank officials told Wendy’s reps they would give her access to the funds after she provided them with a “properly executed, witnessed, and notarized Power of Attorney and signed letter of representation.”

A Power of Attorney gives an individual the right to make business, personal and legal decisions about another person’s property, finances, or medical care when the person is ruled mentally or physically unfit.


Wendy argued in court papers that she is not incapacitated and the bank “repeatedly denied” her requests to access her funds for two weeks.

She wrote:

“I have submitted multiple written requests to Wells Fargo and I have visited various Wells Fargo branches in the South Florida area in an effort to resolve this matter outside of the courtroom.”

Wendy has been out of work since July of 2021 after suffering COVID complications. She is reportedly down to her last several million dollars and is in serious debt.

“I have defaulted and I am at risk of defaulting on several billing and financial obligations, including, but not limited to, mortgage payments and employee payroll,” Wendy wrote.
