Charlamagne Speculates Drugs Are the Real Reason for Wendy Williams’ Health Scare

Wendy Williams recently returned to her hit talk show after a three-week hiatus, tearing up as she thanked staff and fans for encouraging her through her health troubles. Both supporters and detractors have speculated as to whether her Graves’ disease is the real reason for the impromptu break, including Power 105’s Charlamagne Tha God, who shared his opinion during The Breakfast Club’s “Rumor Report” segment.

“Glad you got a handle on your health, and please let the record show everybody is watching you closely now. So if you slip up again, people are gonna know it’s not your health. OK?”

“What, you don’t think she has Graves’ disease?” co-host Angela Yee asks.

“Just saying people are watching her closely now,” he responds. “So if she slips up again, people will know it’s not her health,” later adding, “I’m just saying hypothetically, it could be drugs.”

He also responded to a fan who felt mentioning possible drug abuse was a low-blow.

Williams has been very open about her past cocaine addiction, telling InTouch, “I was a functioning addict. I’d work from 3 in the afternoon until 7 at night, get off and party until 7 in the morning—then sleep until 2, go to the radio station and do it all over again. People around me knew, but nobody ever said anything to me. Nobody had the guts, which is shocking to me.”

Charlamagne previously co-hosted radio show The Wendy Williams Experience with Williams.
