Prior to the allegations Wendy had publicly expressed how she feels about Sherrick.

“He mesmerized me with his twinkling eyes. He flipped the interview around to where he was interviewing me- I was just gaga over this man and he asked me to go to an opening party, an album release party, with him that night. And before the party, I was date raped by him.

“Those type of things happen to girls all the time. And they’ve been happening a lot, to a lot of our mothers, grandmothers, great-great- grandmothers and their great-great-grandmothers, too,” Wendy told reporters during a promotion for the movie which will air on 30 January.

The movie will also feature Wendy’s marriage to Kevin Hunter in 1997 and divorce in 2019. With this marriage Wendy has expressed that she has ‘no regrets’ about their time together.

“The life that I’m living right now is my best life, and I have no guilt about saying that. I don’t regret meeting Kevin, I don’t regret falling in love, I don’t regret staying with him for all 25 years, 21 of them married,” she said.

The movie will be starred by Ciera Payton who will play Wendy whilst Morocco Omari plays Kevin Hunter.

Wendy who is host of the Wendy Show says the movie will ‘clear up all half-truths and untruths.
