WENDY Williams looked excited as she dropped her wheelchair and walked out of her $3 million New York City apartment amid an ugly court battle in rare photos.
In exclusive photos from The Sun, Wendy, 57, looked happy and healthy as she walked through the torrential rain to her waiting car outside her swanky apartment on Thursday afternoon.
She is now back home fighting a brutal court case for control of her and her estate.
The host, who required the assistance of a wheelchair for several months late last year, appeared to be able to walk unaided as she walked towards a waiting car while speaking to a companion who was holding an umbrella for her .
She appeared to be carrying a large, personalized light blue makeup case, as well as a dangling purse, as she set out in the rainy afternoon.
The talk show host, who lost her eponymous show after being absent for months due to a series of medical crises, is back in her hometown fighting for her autonomy.
Wendy, who was in New York City’s guardianship court on Wednesday, sources said, has been fighting on two legal fronts there.
The host is in a dispute with her former manager Bernie Young, 75, who is trying to gain control of Wendy, her estate and affairs through a guardianship case.
Additionally, the TV personality is also embroiled in a fight to gain access to her Wells Fargo bank accounts which are said to be holding millions of dollars.
The hostess had spent much of the beginning of the year in Florida recovering from her health problems, surrounded by her family.
As The Sun previously exclusively reported, Wendy’s former manager Bernie, 75, is seeking guardianship of the ailing star.

Sources claim that there are several people in Wendy’s orbit who may also be contending for guardianship, but that those close to the star don’t feel it necessary.
“No one in her family feels that she needs guardianship, they believe she is capable of running her own life,” a source claimed.
Additionally, Wendy’s son, Kevin Jr., 21, has power of attorney over his mother, The Sun previously reported, but is also not applying for guardianship, according to the insider, who added that neither he nor his mother believe one is necessary.
Sources close to Wendy have insisted the star’s health has improved since she first moved to Florida to be with her family while she recovers from a variety of medical crises.
WENDY FIGHTS BACK
Recently, Wendy addressed Bernie in a rare video she shared on Instagram, in which she accused her axed manager of using her “American Express card to hire an attorney to file a petition against her.”
Meanwhile, a source exclusively claimed that Bernie, who fired Wendy earlier this year, used her $10,000 American Express card to secure the hiring of attorney Carolyn Wolf at the powerful law firm Abrams Fensterman, LLP pay to pursue guardianship of one’s mom.
Wendy’s former manager Bernie has not responded to The Sun’s repeated requests for comment.
Is Wendy okay?
As The Sun previously reported, the former daytime presenter has been struggling with medical issues for some time and ended up losing the Wendy Williams Show after a months-long absence.
A source close to the show previously told The Sun: “The spark is gone. This Wendy who had that twinkle in her eye, that cheeky grin, and that little wink for ten years isn’t the same now.”
