Speaking with Fat Joe during an Instagram live, she made the shocking claims, ” I only have 2 dollars, and nothing else. Everything is frozen, some people are involved with it, and so that’s what I am doing right now.” 

She also shared another video and pleaded to once again be granted access to her frozen assets,” Please let me have access to my money, this is not right and again, this is not fair.”

More on that, the daylight TV show host has once again made news, by calling out Spotify. She stated that her team is working on a podcast show and wants to air on the platform, but there is a slight catch.

“She sees Joe Rogan has a $100million podcast deal, and now she wants that kind of money. The people at iHeart don’t like controversy, so the best place for her is Spotify. They like the wild cards, but even at Spotify, they don’t give you the money unless you prove yourself first, and Wendy wants money up front.”

From making claims about just having $2 in her bank account to $100 million. Truly, this is quite a massive jump, one which could pay if Spotify finds the show lucrative.
