Who is Wendy Williams’ brother?

Tommy Williams, the younger brother of Wendy Williams, is a trainer, vlogger and social media personality.

He runs a YouTube channel with nearly 15k subscribers where he shares vlogs and streams live videos.

Earlier this year, Tommy and Wendy feuded on social media after he accused the presenter of not going to the funeral of their mother Shirley.

During an episode of her show on January 17th, Wendy addressed the family drama and said: “Have you seen this nonsense my brother has been putting on the internet?”

Wendy also has a sister called Wanda Williams.

Tommy shuts down dementia rumours

Wendy’s brother has shut down the rumours that the presenter is suffering from dementia.

Speaking to The Sun, Tommy said: “We haven’t had any alerts like that and I haven’t seen anything like that or have had conversations with her that would lead me to believe that. 

“We routinely go up and check on Wendy even though we’re all down here in Florida. I try to make it up there and my dad speaks with Wendy frequently. So no, we don’t have any concerns concerning her mental state. It’s all physical.”

Tommy said that he hopes to see Wendy on Thanksgiving this week, adding: “I am trying to find out if she’s coming down for Thanksgiving. I mean – she’s normal like that.”
