According to the source, Williams' most recent publicist was brought on by the show’s production company, Debmar Mercury — not by the media personality herself. However, Debmar Mercury has denied this claim.
The outlet also noted Young was in large part hired by the production company, although the former The Wendy Williams Show star was on board with the decision at the time.
“Her son is doing a great job with her, taking care of her and getting her the help she needs," an insider noted of "little Kev" helping his recovering mother. "Kevin Jr has Power of Attorney, but his dad is helping him manage what that means he needs to do."
"He’s young, and because of everything going on, Wendy isn't opposed to having her ex-husband help her," the insider dished of Williams' current situation with her ex — who she officially divorced back in 2019.
As OK! previously reported, Williams may consider taking legal action against her producers after the syndication company made the decision to cancel her show come June and replace her with the former The View cohost, 54. “Wendy is on sick leave and has basically been fired," a source pointed out. "This isn’t right and Wendy isn’t going to take this."
