It was confirmed Thursday that Williams has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and primary progressive aphasia.

The care team for the star announced her new diagnosis in a press release.

They said Williams had undergone ‘a battery of medical tests’ before arriving at the diagnosis, which comes days ahead of the release of her Lifetime documentary Where Is Wendy Williams?, which details her struggles with alcohol abuse and mental health in recent years.
