RHOA Star Kandi Burruss Settles $18k IRS Debt
Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss, and husband, Todd Tucker, forked over a five-figure payment to the IRS after they were slammed with tax liens, according to a new Radar Online report.
Court docs confirmed that the Internal Revenue Service released two liens filed against the couple’s company. The first lien stated that the couple owed $2,520 for the year 2020. The second notice stated that Kandi and Todd did not pay a tax bill of $15,812.52, in the same year. The reality TV couple paid a total of $18,332.52 to settle with the agency.
Kandi and Todd own and operate several Atlanta restaurants, including Blaze Steak and Seafood and Old Lady Gang. Bravo spinoff series, Kandi & The Gang, which followed the staff at Kandi’s eatery, was canceled by the network earlier this month.
On November 17, the Bravo star announced the cancellation of Kandi & The Gang, on Amazon Live.
“Unfortunately, it is not returning. Bravo is not bringing it back. It’s so sad and I’m super sad about it,” she told an enquiring fan.
The singer/songwriter added — “Honestly I’m not ready to give any statement. I really haven’t put my thoughts into words. I have not written a statement. All I can say is that I really love our show Kandi And The Gang and everyone in it.”
She continued— “I feel like it deserves a second season. People ask me about the show every day. There will be a lot of disappointed fans. I’m disappointed.”
In May, Kandi and Todd were forced to shut down Blaze after the restaurant failed a health inspection. The business reopened a few days later after passing a subsequent inspection.
Earlier this month, the couple was hit with a lawsuit involving Old Lady Gang, in connection to a shooting that took place in 2020.
A woman named Kiya Humphries filed the lawsuit against the eatery on behalf of herself and her daughter, Tammy Johnson. She also sued the owners of the shopping center where Old Lady Gang was located and the center’s hired security team, according to court documents.
“While waiting to be seated at Old Lady Gang, a man wearing a red tracksuit entered Old Lady Gang and was near the front of the restaurant,” the lawsuit read. “Shortly afterward, a second man entered Old Lady Gang.”
“The man wearing the red tracksuit began shooting. Kiya Humphries was shot in the right calf.”
Humphries’ injuries reportedly required medical attention, including multiple surgeries, as well as therapy and counseling.
Kandi made headlines again in September after gunfire erupted inside Blaze Steak & Seafood. Local news reported that two employees were involved in a fight that led to one of the staffers pulling a gun and firing at the other’s arm. The victim was taken to the local hospital with “non-life-threatening injuries.” The shooting victim was later identified as Kandi’s cousin, Melvin Jones.
Henry Darden, 41, was arrested shortly after he fled the scene.
