The confirmation came after Page Six reported earlier on Wednesday that Wendy, 58, was getting treatment for substance abuse, with a source telling the outlet that her problems have “gotten worse” as she has gone from drinking wine to “straight up vodka”.

Wendy has previously sought treatment in New York and Florida.

According to Page Six, an insider revealed that the production company for her one-time series, Debmar-Mercury, allegedly refused to help Wendy fight her issues.

The insider was quoted saying: “They turned their backs on her. They had too much control over someone so vulnerable.”

Meanwhile, Wendy’s ex-husband Kevin Hunter told Page Six in July that Debmar “would not support Wendy’s recovery efforts with the family”.

He claimed they “would not sign off on anything that would’ve helped her recovery efforts”.

Worries over Wendy’s health and wellness resurfaced in early August after the former radio host claimed she was married to an NYPD officer.

She has also entered a public battle with her bank, Wells Fargo, after she became locked out of her accounts.

Her former attorney claimed in a lengthy statement to Page Six that Wendy’s former financial adviser, Lori Schiller, “left” her to “die” – with the outlet saying Lori “never responded to the claims”.

Williams has battled substance abuse since the early aughts of her career. She got sober and remained until she appeared to relapse in late 2018 or early 2019. At the time, she went on a break from her show for two months but claimed it was to treat herself.

Her health concerns prevented her from returning to host ‘The Wendy Williams Show’.

In March, Wendy appeared on Good Morning America and assured she was “absolutely” of “sound mind” following speculation about her health.

She said,

“When people want control of their accounts, they say anything, including something crazy like that about me.

“[My] health is very well. And I’ve actually had a few appointments,” Williams continued. “You know, I’m 57 now and I have the mind and body of a 25-year-old.”

She has been open about her battles with Graves’ disease and lymphedema.
