Inside the shocking documentary, Kevin Jr., 23, revealed that the 59-year-old's battle with both conditions was spawned by her frequent alcohol use over the years. According to Kevin, Williams was drinking so much that the alcohol affected her "headspace and her brain."

"I think they said it was alcohol-induced dementia," he told interviewers in the alarming documentary.

The source claimed that a neurologist met with the star, her son Kevin, and her then-husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., aged 51, pleading with her to get healthy and sober.

"The doctor explained to them that Wendy was suffering from alcohol-related brain damage. They told her that her alcohol abuse had done permanent damage to the layers in her brain," the confidante said. "She was warned then and there that if she continued to drink, the damage would only get worse."

As previously reported the bank has accused Williams' family of financial wrongdoing, but according to her son Kevin Jr., it's all a mixup.

"When my mom was living down here, as one can imagine, it's not a cheap lifestyle," Kevin Jr. told the producers of the documentary about his mom living at a Miami wellness facility. "The courts tried to frame it as though I was making all these charges for my own happiness."

"My mom has never been a cheap person so whether to be flying her back and forth on private planes or even paying for appointments," he explained. "It was all under one American Express."

Despite Kevin's claims, it was revealed that Wendy's son spent allegedly spent $100,000 of his mom's money on Uber Eats delivery service.

"To put it into perspective. Kevin's birthday party that his mom threw was $120,000," Wendy's nephew Travis Finnie explained. "Kevin's rent was $80,000. Kevin's Uber Eats probably exceeded $100,000 that his mom approves."

"So for them to have a court case and ripping him away from taking care of his mother is very questionable," he added.

Kevin Jr. went on to say that he never spent any of his mom's money "without her consent", something netizens on X, formerly known as Twitter, found hard to believe.
