Wendy Williams is preparing for a legal battle with Wells Fargo Bank after demands to unlock her funds have gone ignored.

On Wednesday, Wendy shared an Instagram photo of herself wearing a faux fur coat and matching Louis Vuitton handbag. She captioned the photo: "Ready for court."

She quickly deleted that image and re-posted the same photo along with the caption: "Ready."

The NY Post wondered if Wendy appeared on court today to take on the banking giant.

The daytime talk show host filed a lawsuit against the bank over her funds, which have been frozen since February.

Wells Fargo froze Wendy's account containing $3 million after her former financial adviser, Lori Schiller, claimed she was mentally unfit.

Wendy denied the allegations in videos on her Instagram account. In one recent video, Wendy said, "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. I want my money. This is not fair."

"Wells Fargo has no questions and answers regarding my money. This is not fair. And Lori Schiller and Wells Fargo has this guardianship petition about keeping me away from my money," she added.

"This is not right and this is not fair," she repeated.

While Williams' lawsuit against Wells Fargo has been sealed by a New York judge.

Wendy accused Schiller of colluding with the bank to block her access to her funds.

"Wells Fargo has no questions and answers regarding my money. This is not fair. And Lori Schiller and Wells Fargo has this guardianship petition about keeping me away from my money," she added.

"This is not right and this is not fair," she repeated.

Wendy also accused her former manager, Bernie Young, of using her credit card to pay a lawyer to file for guardianship over her.

"I know for a fact that Bernie Young used my American Express card to hire an attorney to file a petition against me. That was done with my American Express card," she said.

According to reports, Young filed for guardianship "as she suffers serious health problems."

Speaking directly to Young, Wendy said, "You're no good and this is not fair at all."

Wendy's ex-husband, Kevin Hunter Jr., filed a lawsuit against Wendy's former production company Debmar-Mercury seeking $7 million after they canceled Wendy's daytime talk show.

According to sources, Wendy planned to bring Kevin back as her manager once she returned to the purple chair. However, insiders say the show was canceled because producers didn't want to work with Kevin.

Wendy Williams made a rare video appearance from her winter home in Florida, where she is visited often by her loyal son, Kevin Hunter Jr.

The 57-year-old daytime talk show host has been out of work since July 2021 when she was sickened by COVID, despite being fully vaccinated.

Her Wendy Williams Show has seen a revolving door of hosts, including actress/comedienne Sherri Shepherd, who was given the permanent hosting gig.

Despite reports that she is mentally incapacitated, Wendy sounds alert and oriented and appears to be her old self. She assured her fans that she plans to come back "stronger" than ever.

"I wanna be all I can be and then get back to New York and get on down with The Wendy Williams Show," she said Wednesday.

In the video, filmed by Kevin, 21, Wendy could be seen walking along the beach in Miami, Florida, where just three months earlier, she was wheelchair bound.

"It's just after 8 o'clock in the morning and I'm doing OK, you know? It's very peaceful here," Wendy told Kevin, before revealing that she takes a walk along the beach every morning before heading to the gym for a cardio workout.

The mom-of-one wore a black hooded sweatshirt and a New York Yankees baseball cap, as the wind whipped her blonde tresses.

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.

Wendy, 57, hasn't worked since July of 2021 and she is reportedly down to her last several million dollars.

She's allegedly desperate to gain access to the cash because she is behind on her rent for her Manhattan condo and has other outstanding bills.

An attorney representing the queen of daytime talk is asking the court for an emergency order forcing Wells Fargo to unfreeze her accounts.

In court documents obtained by The Sun UK, Wendy's attorney stated Wells Fargo is in "possession of several million dollars' worth of funds," belonging to Wendy, and she has been denied access to her funds for more than two-weeks.

Wells Fargo justified its action by claiming Wendy signed an agreement allowing her accounts to be frozen pending a court order, if the bank suspects "financial exploitation, dementia, or undue influence."

However, Wendy's attorney claims the bank has overreached its authority, and he is seeking a judge's order allowing "access to her financial accounts, assets, and statements," while her dispute with Wells Fargo is resolved in arbitration.

The court docs allege that Wells Fargo is in breach of their fiduciary duty and that Wendy is suffering "imminent and irreparable financial damage."

Cheronda Guyton was living the high life in a $12 million 3,800 square foot beachfront house in the exclusive enclave of Malibu County. The home Guyton and her family resided in was the scene of many lavish galas that lasted well into the night.

Neighbors wondered how a Wells Fargo bank VP could afford the beachfront property's $60,000 a month rent on her salary -- even with bonuses.

The problem is the Senior Vice President in charge of foreclosed properties at Wells Fargo, wasn't renting or buying the posh home.

The previous owners, who lost money in the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, turned the home over to Wells Fargo bank to pay off a higher debt.

The bank agreed not to sell the home so the owners could align their debts and get it back. Guyton and her family moved in shortly thereafter.

According to the LA Times, Wells Fargo last week announced Guyton's termination for the executive's alleged personal use of the home owned by the bank.

Wells Fargo announced it would "take decisive action" against any employee "who may have violated Wells Fargo's policies." The bank in a statement also said it regretted "the disruption to the neighboring property owners since these allegations were made."

Many real estate agents contacted by The Times expressed surprise and said they had not heard of similar incidents.

An agent with Keller Williams Realty, told The Times she was "appalled" by the alleged conduct and what appeared to be an obvious abuse of a position.

But one agent, Farrell "Burt" Bakman of Coldwell Banker in Beverly Hills, believes Wells Fargo knew about the illegal home squatting. He said he saw no problem with a lender using a property "as some sort of a bonus" for their executives.

"It makes sense," he said. "It's thinking outside of the box for Wells Fargo. They just hold on to it as an asset."
