Wendy Williams’ manager slammed her son Kevin Hunter Jr.’s recent claims the talk show host is being taken advantage of by her team. In a recent interview, Hunter said Williams’ advisers overlook her health concerns for financial gain. The 22-year-old also claimed his mother is near death as those around her do little to help her with her struggles with alcohol, accusing her team of emboldening her drinking.
However, Will Selby refutes his allegations and denies Williams’ team is exploiting her.
“Taking advantage of her for what? To get what? To do what?” Williams’ manager stated during an interview with ET. “I’m not here to brag, but I was doing just okay before Wendy came along and I insisted on helping her because she requested my assistance.”
Selby also pointed to Williams’ court-appointed guardianship, stating all decisions are approved by the court.
“No one, even if they wanted to take advantage of her—everything has to get approved by that court,” he added. “So, any type of business dealings that we do, Wendy, myself and anyone—we have to get the guardianship to sign off on it. So how can anyone take advantage of her?”
Selby also blasted Hunter for going to the media with his concerns about his mother’s health.
“He’s entitled to his opinion. I’m just trying to say that us, as adults, let’s be responsible and let’s actually utilize some common sense. Someone was near death, someone like your mother. Why would you go to an online publication to discuss it with them?” Selby questioned.
Wendy Williams Is Currently Receiving Treatment At A Facility
He also gave an update on the radio host’s health, confirming she’s currently receiving treatment at a wellness facility.
“She’s progressing very well,” he said. “She looks healthy. She sounds healthy, and I think she’s doing amazing. As of today. I’m not a doctor, but that’s my synopsis on how Wendy’s doing right now. Wendy is at a facility doing her best to be her best. She’s taking it day by day.”
