Wendy Williams‘ multimillion dollar New York Citypenthouse has been sold by her guardian for a loss after the host was deemed ‘incapacitated’ amid her dementia battle.

The  three-bedroom, three-bathroom Manhattan home sold on May 10 for $3.75 million, a loss of $822,000 from its purchase price of $4.5million in July 2021, per the New York Post.

Williams, 59, was diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia in 2023. The year prior Williams was placed under a conservatorship after Wells Fargo froze her accounts due to allegations from her financial adviser at the time, claiming she was of ‘unsound mind’, according to court filings.

Records obtained by the publication indicate Williams was deemed ‘incapacitated’ which ‘necessitated’ a guardian’s involvement in the process of selling her 2,400 square feet penthouse.

An insider said: ‘Wendy’s dream has always been to live in Manhattan in a dream apartment but never got a chance to do so. It is a very unfortunate situation.’

Dailymail.com has reached out to Williams’ representative for comment.

In March it was revealed a lien has been applied towards the NYC home, as she owes $568,451.57 in back taxes.

According to legal docs reviewed by TMZ, federal officials said that the six-figure sum was over unpaid balances for 2021 and 2019.

The lien was first generated this past January, and reported to officials with New York City’s finance department the following month.

The outlet noted that it was possible Williams or her camp have addressed the situation, but it wasn’t reflected in the records it reviewed.

Williams’ financial guardian Sabrina Morrissey had been appointed around two years ago, which precedes the timeframe the tax balances were not tended to, according to the outlet.

Williams’ health woes were the focal point of a Lifetime documentary titled Where is Wendy Williams?, which focused on how Williams’ alcohol consumption played a part in her downturn in health.

New details of Williams’ health decline have been released by different groups, as Williams’ caretaker issued a statement February 22 saying that doctors have diagnosed the TV personality with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia.

The health struggles ‘have already presented significant hurdles in Wendy’s life’ and have behavioral and cognitive impacts, according to the statement.

‘Wendy is still able to do many things for herself,’ the statement attributed to her care team read. ‘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.’

The statement on Williams’ health was issued on PR Newswire. A representative listed on the release, Jennifer Hanley, referred questions back to the statement when contacted by The Associated Press.

The announcement came a day after a cover story in People magazine quoted Williams’ family about the nature of her struggles, ahead of a Lifetime documentary set to air Saturday.

‘The people who love her cannot see her,’ the magazine quoted Williams’ sister Wanda as saying. ‘I think the big (question) is: How the hell did we get here?’ The family said a court-appointed legal guardian was the only person with unfettered access to Williams.

The article said the Lifetime documentary crew, which set out in 2022 to chronicle Williams’ comeback, stopped filming in April 2023 when, her manager ‘and jeweler’ Will Selby says in footage for the film, she entered a facility to treat ‘cognitive issues.’

Her son says in the documentary that doctors had connected her cognitive issues to alcohol use, People reported. Williams’ family told People they don´t know where she is and cannot call her themselves, but she can call them.

The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration describes FTD as a group of brain disorders caused by degeneration of the frontal and/or temporal lobes of the brain that affects behavior, language and movement.
