Radar Online obtained documents that revealed that Photography By Ace LLC filed a claim in Gwinnett County Court against NeNe and her business, The Linnethia Lounge.
The company stated in the legal docs that invoices had been sent to NeNe’s club along with reminders, in an attempt to collect payment. The company said that the defendants had been contacted multiple times, via email, requesting payment for services rendered. The business said that NeNe had been refusing to pay the bill and was “no longer is communicating on this matter.”
Photography by Ace said that the former reality star claimed the photographer had never worked for her or her club and denied ever paying the pro in the past. The photographer claimed to have possession of “complete invoices that show otherwise.”
The photographer attached two invoices to the filing—both addressed to NeNe. One invoice was for $500 for a job connected to a brunch and a Falcons Halloween party, which took place on October 30 and 31, 2021. The second invoice was linked to a job completed on November 12 and 13, 2021, also for $500.
NeNe was reportedly served with paperwork in early July, a few days after the case was filed. The process server explained that they waited for NeNe to return to her $1.8 million condo, approaching her after she got out of her 2020 Rolls Royce.
The server said—“I delivered the documents to Linnethia Leakes with identity confirmed by subject saying yes when named. The individual accepted service with direct delivery.”
The photographer posted two snaps of the RHOA veteran and her boyfriend, Nyonisela Sioh, at The Linnethia Lounge, only weeks before the lawsuit was filed. She also shared a photo snapped alongside NeNe, who appeared to believe that she was posing with a fan, inside her club, on September 25, 2021. The caption read—“Closing out my birthday on a high note. Thank you @neneleakes for this amazing photo. You ROCK!!!!”
NeNe made headlines last month when she took fans and followers inside her journey with plastic surgery. She took to Instagram to announce that she had gone under the knife for a liposuction procedure and a “professional, mini Brazilian butt lift.”
NeNe, who previously announced an ambassadorship with Georgia Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery, is partnering with Dr. Okoro in a journey called “Perfectly Pretty You.”
NeNe explained that she was more comfortable with a “mini BBL” procedure than a traditional BBL.
NeNe, who previously underwent a breast augmentation and nose job, allowed her followers inside the plastic surgery process, performed at Dr. Okoro’s office. While the entirety of the surgery was not captured, the doctor was filmed performing liposuction on the reality TV personality inside an operating room.
