“A really close friend of mine was going through a situation that wasn’t really healthy for her, wasn’t healthy for her friends, or her family — and it was difficult to tell her,” she said. “And then I realized, look, oh my goodness, she’s — all the signs that I was learning about with financial abuse, she was involved in.”
“I had no idea what financial abuse was. When I read that 99% of domestic violence cases do involve financial abuse, I feel like that was a really, really high number, and it’s shocking,” Williams told CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan.
“I feel like a responsibility to make people know more about things like financial abuse. And how to avoid it like I want to teach my daughter everything about it,” Williams said. “And if I have more kids and I have a boy, I want to teach him about it so he is not a part of the problem and only adds to the solutions.”
