Wendy Williams fans were outraged after the Lifetime documentary aired.

"What the doc has done is reveal a disturbing look at her life. She doesn’t appear to be in control of her finances — or her faculties," a source spilled about the program.

As OK! previously reported, the trailer for the television event stunned the public as Williams gave a candid glimpse into her mental, financial and personal struggles.

"She's done a really good job at making it seem like everything's OK," her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., explained in the clip. "But in reality, there's something wrong going on."

After years at the helm of the beloved talk show, Williams left her purple chair in July 2021 due to ongoing health issues. However, in the years that followed, the television personality's battle with alcohol and dwindling finances became an issue.

"Her accounts are now handled between the guardian, Ms. Williams and the court," the insider claimed. "The court can eventually decide to give Wendy back full control over her accounts and end the guardianship — but that is up to the court."

According to one of Williams' family members in the preview for the documentary, one of her family members seemed to hint that the legal situation was not in the funny lady's best interest.

"She was put in front of a judge and given a guardian. That was when they took her away from us," the relative of Williams' stated.
