In a letter filed with the court, Wells Fargo stated that they are "open to arranging with [Wendy's] counsel to release funds directly to the creditors to pay outstanding amounts that have been historically and regularly paid from the accounts in question, such as employee salaries, utilities, and the like."

According to the outlet, the bank is requesting that a guardian be put in place by the court to determine if Williams is indeed being exploited by people around her.

Williams, 57, and her legal team have accused the financial establishment of shutting her out of her accounts for weeks which caused “imminent and irreparable financial damage."

"For more than two weeks, Wells Fargo has repeatedly denied my requests to access my financial assets, which total over several million dollars," The Wendy Williams Show host wrote in an affirmation.

Williams went on to allege that her former financial advisor Lori Schiller told Wells Fargo that she was of unsound mind in turn having the bank shut down her accounts. The media personality also revealed that Schiller was let go due to "malfeasance in relation to [Wendy’s] accounts."

Williams believes that Wells Fargo has been taking direction from Schiller instead of listening to her — noting that she is not the victim of financial exploitation as the bank claims. The former radio DJ also noted that not being able to pay her bills has been financial damage to “myself, my family, and my business.”

As OK! previously reported, Wells Fargo claimed they were protecting the New Jersey native by shutting her out of her accounts — alleging that Schiller and other third parties close to Williams came forward to warn them of potential "financial exploitation."

The bank stated in court papers that "without divulging too much on the public record, Wells Fargo has strong reason to believe that [Williams] is the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation."
