Wendy Williams Obtains Power of Attorney to Help Access Frozen Bank Accounts

Earlier this week news leaked that troubled talk show host Wendy Williams had been locked out of her bank accounts after Wells Fargo questioned her mental state [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Wendy has obtained a power of attorney after defaulting on some of her financial obligations... 

From The Sun
Wendy and her representatives claim that Wells Fargo had told them they would be given a ruling after she provided them with a “properly executed, witnessed, and notarized Power of Attorney and signed letter of representation."
A power of attorney gives a designated individual the right to make decisions about another person's property, finances, or medical care when the person is unable to do so.
The court papers do not specify who is authorized to act on her behalf or what powers were assigned to that person.
The bank allegedly has yet to tell Wendy their decision, and instead hired their own legal team in the ongoing dispute.
Wendy argued in the papers that the bank “repeatedly denied" her requests to access her financial assets, which total over "several million dollars.”
She wrote: “I have submitted multiple written requests to Wells Fargo and I have visited various Wells Fargo branches in the South Florida area in an effort to resolve this matter outside of the courtroom.
“I have defaulted and I am at risk of defaulting on several billing and financial obligations, including, but not limited to, mortgage payments and employee payroll.”
