The attorney continued to insist that Williams, 57, is “fine” and “sane” after her former financial adviser, Lori Schiller, claimed otherwise, prompting Wells Fargo to cut off access to the million dollars in the accounts of former shock jockette.

“[She is] disappointed by falsely circulated statements from an industry to which she has dedicated her life,” Thomas said. “Wendy is grateful for the love and outpouring of support she has received from her fans, and she can’t wait to return.
