(Page Six) – Wendy Williams’ former DJ claimed her talk show staffers didn’t know the “extent” of her illnesses.

“I don’t think no one knew exactly to the extent how bad it was,” DJ Boof said on “TMZ Live” Monday. “I felt like people knew something was up with her, but they didn’t really know.

“I knew it because I’ve been around it,” he continued. “It’s sad to see something like that happen to her. She needs help.”

Boof, 39, shared that he last spoke to Williams about a month ago and gleaned that the team running her court-ordered guardianship were “not letting [her family] know exactly what’s going on.”

“I think, if you were to ask me, I think that Florida would be a better place for her, because that’s where her family is and she needs that 24-hour care,” he said.

Boof also said the last time he saw Williams, 59, in person, she was “100 percent great.”

“She was recovering … and she seemed to be doing great,” he shared.

Boof’s comments are a complete 180 from four years ago, when he claimed online that the talk show’s staff were too “afraid” to speak up about Williams’ issues, which is why he ultimately left “The Wendy Williams Show.”

Williams’ team announced last week that the famed talk show host had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and aphasia.
