Wendy Williams Addresses Dating Rumors, Says She’s Still Single

Wendy Williams is setting the record straight — she’s still single. After being spotted — and photographed — out and about numerous times with celebrity jeweler William Selby, otherwise known as “Big Will,” rumors started swirling that she may have a new man in her life. Nevertheless, the talk show host says that she and Selby are merely friends, according to Page Six.

During the “Hot Topics” section of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, the television host discussed her eventful weekend, including the aspects that made headlines. While she acknowledged that she does care for Selby, it’s not in a romantic way.

“I had an interesting weekend. It was all innocent to me but apparently it caused waves everywhere else. All I’m doing is being Wendy. So I met this young man that I really like. Not in that way, I was setting you up with dramatic effect. I was only at the studio for 35 minutes. I was with my friend, who is also my jeweler, Will. But and whatever, here is the big [scoop]. Will is my friend, he happens to be a jeweler.”

Williams went on to say that she is likely one of the lower-paying clients Selby works with. Selby has been known to create customized jewelry pieces for big-name stars such as Drake, 50 Cent, and ASAP Ferg. As The Inquisitr previously reported, Williams shared an Instagram photo of herself and Selby cuddled up together over the weekend. The pair certainly looked like a couple as they visited artist Black Papi in his studio. This was something that was not lost upon Williams’ followers.

“A lot of you all said we looked like a couple. No, we’re not a couple,” she said.

She went on to say that they had not planned to dress alike, despite the fact that her beige negligee nearly perfectly matched Selby’s beige athletic wear. Gold jewelry hung from his neck and wrists as he placed a hand on Williams’ leg. Both of them smiled broadly, appearing to enjoy each other’s company.

In addition to their outing this past weekend, Williams and Selby also reportedly spent Valentine’s Day — as well as Super Bowl Sunday — together. Some fans contend that there is more to their relationship than she is ready to admit.

Williams recently became a legally-single woman after having filed for divorce from her husband of over two decades, Kevin Hunter, in April. Hunter welcomed a baby girl with his alleged mistress in 2019.
