Rapper Boosie Badazz is reportedly consulting with medical specialists who saved Wendy Williams' leg after she reportedly cut her foot and the wound was slow to heal.
Boosie, who was shot by gang members after attending a vigil for rapper Mo3 in Dallas, took to social media on Friday to plead for help raising funds to consult with a specialist.
Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., told his followers he is "not doing that good," and he doesn't have much time to find a specialist before he loses that leg.
Boosie said he needs a ton of money from his fans to pay for a "specialist doctor" who works on "fixing body parts, that cost hundreds of thousands."
According to TMZ, Boosie, 38, had two surgeries to place pins in his bone, But type 1 diabetics are slow to heal and the slightest cut can be disastrous.
Sources say Wendy, 56, had a scare last summer when she cut her foot but she didn't realize it due to lack of sensation in her feet. Doctors allegedly gave her antibiotics to save her leg.
She was pictured leaving an emergency room in Manhattan earlier this year. A source says she carefully examines the soles of her feet daily.
Wendy has a medical condition called lymphedema that causes poor drainage of the lymphatic system in the affected area. The condition causes swelling, tightness, aching, tingling, and numbness.
Wendy Williams was spotted arriving at the studio with her team earlier this week. The 56-year-old talk show host showed off her dramatic 25 lb weight loss during quarantine.
She looked healthy as she exited her chauffeured SUV. Wendy previously struggled to walk due to a condition called lymphedema which causes a buildup of fluid in the tissue resulting in swelling in her legs and feet.
But Wendy seemed to be getting around without trouble. She wore denim shorts, an LV letterman style jacket, high top sneakers and a Dior top.
Wendy discussed her condition in a recent episode of her talk show.
"I have lymphedema and it doesn't go away," she explained, as the camera zoomed in on her pink sneakers. "How dare you, how dare you, how dare you make fun of me and the way I walk and the whole bit," she said, apparently addressing hateful comments made by her former friend, NeNe Leakes.
"What will you get if you live long enough? Everybody gets something," Wendy laughed. "If I don't laugh, I'll cry. Damn you feet, damn you feet, damn you feet!"
Wendy Williams was seen leaving her TV Show dressed comfortably in a negligee nightgown, a long duster and bedroom slippers on Tuesday, July 16, in New York City.
