Morrissey's lawsuit reportedly seeks injunctive relief to halt distribution of the film. Reports indicate that A+E Networks filed an appeal on Friday. The judge ordered documents in the case temporarily sealed, but set a trial date for next week on the matter. TMZ Reports.

Williams is an executive producer of the raw documentary, which was originally conceived as a behind-the-scenes look at relaunching her career via a new podcast. The production crew began following the former host of The Wendy Williams Show in late August 2022, but due to her physical and mental condition, the focus has focused on her struggle with addiction and autoimmune disorders.

In a moment from the documentary Shared exclusively with the people, Williams sits down with her friend Angela “Blac Chyna” White – the former reality TV player known for her romantic relationship with Rob Kardashian. White, 35, stopped by Williams' apartment in New York, where the two had a heart-to-heart conversation as Williams removed her wig, revealing her real hair. Later in the clip, she takes off her shoes to expose her feet, showing White how lymphedema has damaged them.

Morrissey was hired as Williams' caregiver amid her public downfall. The TV personality's then-financial advisor alleged in late 2022 in a New York court that she was “of unsound mind,” prompting Wells Fargo Bank to file a petition to place Williams under temporary financial conservatorship.

Williams remains in a facility under Morrissey's care today and remains inaccessible to anyone except the heretofore publicly unknown woman. Call made by Hollywood Reporter To Morrissey it was not immediately returned.
