Wendy Williams Hit w/ $568,000 Tax Lien On Her NYC Condo Amid Health & Money Issues

Wendy Williams is facing more financial issues as she navigates her health.

The daytime talk show icon was hit with a tax lien of $$568,451.57 on her condo in New York City, per court docs obtained by TMZ. She purchased the property for $4.5 million in 2021 and allegedly failed to pay taxes in 2019 and 2021, causing her to owe the six-figure amount. (Sabrina Morrissey wasn’t named her guardian until early 2022 and Wendy Williams took issue with having someone appointed over her finances.)

The lien was first generated in January before the New York City Department of Finance recorded it a month later.

News of the debt comes as Wendy Williams’ health is in the spotlight after the gut-wrenching two-part documentary Where Is Wendy Williams? aired on Lifetime last month. The project showed the media mogul navigating alcoholism, family issues, and mental health concerns. Shortly before it aired, her team shared that she had been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia last year.

They said in part,

“Wendy is still able to do many things for herself. Most importantly she maintains her trademark sense of humor and is receiving the care she requires to make sure she is protected and that her needs are addressed. She is appreciative of the many kind thoughts and good wishes being sent her way.”

Last month, her family said that she was in a facility to receive treatment for cognitive issues, however, they were unable to get in direct contact with her.

Williams’ niece, Alex Finnie, said:

“We’ve all seen the images over the last few months — and, really, few years — of what has seemed like a spiral for my aunt. It was shocking and heartbreaking to see her in this state.”

Her guardian is said to be the only one with unrestricted access to her but it was noted that Williams can contact her family at any time.

Meanwhile, Williams’ ex-husband said this week that he wants back pay he believes he’s owed in alimony, plus a portion of Williams’ SAG-AFTRA retirement fund. In new court docs, he claimed he hadn’t received a court-ordered support check since 2022. He alleged that after he and Williams’ divorce, she agreed to a “severance pay” which he hasn’t seen since her guardian was appointed. He said in part in the filing,

“This is an emergent matter because I rely on the severance pay for my living expenses and having been without this income for twenty-three months has affected me greatly.”

Continued prayers and thoughts for Wendy Williams!
