Meanwhile, Williams was spotted out and about in New York on Monday with her rumored new beau, 27-year-old Marc Tomblin.
Dailymail.com has revealed that Tomblin is a convicted felon who served two years in prison in 2013 for robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering in North Carolina, according to public records.
A source close to the talk show queen told Dailymail.com: ‘People around Wendy are concerned for her well-being, especially since she is in such a vulnerable state with the divorce, addiction and alcoholism and the status of the show not being renewed yet.’
‘With this new guy, how can Wendy really trust him if she’s going through so much on her own?’ the insider added. ‘The fact she’s brought him to New York is also a concern. She’s let him into her life and her home. People are worried he’s trying to manipulate her.’

‘I didn’t plan on this, but it is what it is,’ she added.
