Earlier this week, Wendy Williams revealed that 80s R&B star Sherrick was the man who raped her.
She did so in front of the release of the new doc Wendy Williams: The Movie.
Williams had spoken about the rape before but had never named a name.
“His name was Sherrick [and] he was a one-hit wonder, remember the song. It was called ‘Just Call’ and it was number one on the R&B charts and an overnight sensation,” she told The Daily News about the late 1980s encounter.
Sherrick died in 1999 at age 41, so he's not around to defend himself.

“Sherrick was a beautiful man, a genius with a voice like an angel,” Lynne Conner Smith told Page Six on Thursday. “We have three amazing children. This is quite painful to not only us but his nieces and siblings.”
“Why would Wendy not call the police if it were true?” she told us. “Why did she go out with him? We have questions, too! It's hard to believe. Why now?
