Wendy Williams' former manager Bernie Young has found himself in hot water this week since filing for guardianship of the ailing talk show host as her bombshell lawsuit against Wells Fargo rages on.
In a scathing Instagram video, the 57-year-old not only accused her ex staffer of petitioning for guardianship when it was entirely unnecessary, but of using her American Express card to hire the attorney.
Now, sources per The Sun have obtained a copy of the bank statement and confirmed the transaction in question was, in fact, charged to Williams' personal credit card on Monday, January 10 "before the initial proceedings with Wells Fargo began."
However, this only proves the $10,000 charge was made to the television personality's American Express account, and does not yet confirm that Young used it without her permission.
As OK! previously reported, Williams — who has been fighting an uphill battle with health issues since last summer — took to social media in a rare video appearance to slam Young and her ex financial advisor Lori Schiller, for allegedly conspiring against her with the banking franchise in order to limit her access to her own funds.
"My thing is that I've been asking questions about my money, and when I began asking questions about my money, suddenly Lori Schiller has got no response regarding my money," the former radio host stated in the four minute video. "I want my money. This is not fair. And Wells Fargo has no questions and answers with regarding my money."
“And this guy named Bernie Young. I know for a fact, that Bernie Young used my American Express card to hire an attorney to file a petition against me,” she continued. “Bernie Young, you’re no good, and this is not fair at all.”
Williams' legal drama with Wells Fargo began after the bank froze her accounts because they believed she may be mentally unwell and a victim of financial exploitation.
The vibrant talk show personality has since denied the accusations that she has not been healthy enough to handle her own finances, and chalked the rumors up to the work of "disgruntled" ex employees attempting to take advantage of her.
