Why did Wendy Williams and Bert Girigorie split up?
The two have never openly admitted what really went wrong, but Girigorie said it went downhill from the start. In a 2019 interview with RadarOnline, he said he knew nothing about Williams’s alleged cocaine addiction but later became aware of it. “It was very bizarre. She just turned into a different person. I don’t know what was going on. I didn’t understand a lot of the things she did. I didn’t understand their motives, ”he said.
Reflecting on how they “had a big breakout and the relationship became very strained,” he added that their behavior was reckless. In fact, he remembered a time when she insisted on spending the night alone while they were on their honeymoon in Rio! “I was like ‘NO!’ because even then Rio was not known as the safest place. And that was the big argument that I remember, “he said.
“I know she said she was doing drugs, but she kept that away from me,” Girigorie said of Williams. “I assumed it was her, but I didn’t know anything about it. I know I’ve seen strange behavior and behavior that I didn’t understand when I look back. “
