Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Wendy Williams’ guardian has filed a lawsuit against A&E Television Networks, the parent company of Lifetime, in an attempt to stop the airing of the new documentary “Where Is Wendy Williams?”. The lawsuit, filed under seal by Sabrina Morrissey, comes just days before the documentary’s planned premiere.

A source familiar with the case said that the lawsuit is an attempt to prevent the airing of the documentary. A hearing has been scheduled for next week to determine if the documents should remain sealed.

Mark Ford, the executive producer of the documentary, stated that Williams’ attorneys, guardianship attorneys, and management had approved the project. The film was intended to document Williams’ comeback but evolved into a portrayal of her struggles with alcohol addiction and health issues.

Williams claims in the documentary that her guardian, whose identity is undisclosed, has stolen money from her. The film crew stopped filming Williams in April 2023, when she entered a facility for treatment. Her family recently announced that she has been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia.

Williams’ family says they are unable to see her, as her guardian has the only access to her. Her sister Wanda expressed confusion over the situation, stating, “How the hell did we get here?”
