Wendy Williams Owes Over $400,000 to Chinese Shoe Making Factory
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

As a line on Fashionista reads, “Wendy Williams, how you doin’? Not very well, it seems.”

According to the New York Daily News Wendy Williams, owes $419,000 to the Chinese factory responsible for manufacturing her shoe line. Williams’s financial negligence has apparently resulted in kidnapping and protests.

The TV personality along with husband Kevin Hunter originally made a deal with Chinese manufacturing firm Max Harvest International Holdings to create shoes for her line “Adorn” sometime last year. To date, the company has produced 12,140 shoes for Wendy Williams’s label, and has not yet been adequately paid. The workers have now staged protests against the firm and Williams.

As for the kidnapping allegations, “the factory’s owner actually kidnapped one of the manufacturing firm’s managers, holding him hostage for two weeks before finally releasing him unharmed. Now, the manufacturing firm’s owners, who wish to remain unidentified, have fled Hong Kong in fear of further altercations.”

According to Wendy’s lawyer, Staci Riordan, the star has not paid up because, “Things don’t work in China the way they work in the United States.” She has been in negotiations for months and intends to file a lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court if an agreement cannot be reached.

Uh-oh! Let’s hope this all ends well.

What do you make of this whole debacle?

  11. Honey this is KARMA!! Only the beginning…. If you are friends with Wendy be careful not to be near her during a lighting storm.

  12. thats what happens when you favor cheap, fast fashion. and just a side note, most of the products you have that are made in third world countries are involved in these types of ridiculous situations. think twice!

  13. Dom says:

    @ Mi Manning

    I thought the same thing! Bet we won’t see this on hot topics.

    Wendy needs to get it together. I love her, so I’m rooting for her to come out on top.

  14. Lord! I would love to hear her address this on hot topics. I’m definitely keeping my ears to the street on this one. Not cool, Wendy!

  15. DIVA says:

    she is not immune to scandal…. now run tell dat !

  16. LaweryChic says:

    Well….at least she’s in good hands with Staci Riordan. She’s one of the best in regards to fashion law.

  17. Mak says:

    wow. i was wondering what happened with the shoe line… i wish her well.

  18. Amani says:

    I wonder if she’ll talk about this on Celebrity Hot Topics.

  19. Above Par says:

    I hope she talks about her own dealings. In the words of Wendy herself…”Mmm…Juicy”

  20. lola says:

    Ain’t karma a b*tch. Wendell Williams, I will see you in court.

  21. lola says:

    …but the true shade is in cliche’s choice of pictures. DEAD and Buried and Resurrected and DEAD again. I’m done!!!!

  22. lmao at lola, I was thinking the same exact thing. But I admit half of what brings me back every day is the comedy.

  23. annie says:

    @special zebra almost everything you buy was manufactured in “third world countries.” From your “Brazilian” jeans to the “Italian” designer pieces. Get a clue. Got to love American ignorance and arrogance.

  24. MissRich says:

    Wow kidnapping tho!!! That’s Cray!’ I luv me some Wendy but that’s just messy. You kno she’s not saying a peep of this on her show. How YOU doin!???

  25. StopTheMaddness says:
