Kim Zolciak Caught Selling FAKE Designer Handbags Amid Financial Struggles
Kim Zolciak has been accused of hawking a knockoff Louis Vuitton bag in supposed “brand new,” condition for $3,500, amid her ongoing financial woes. Fans were quick to call out Kim for marketing a “fake” and worn out designer bag for top dollar.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum recently reconciled with her husband, Kroy Biermann, after the couple called off their plan to divorce.
Instagram account @thegoodthebadandthefake6 posted Kim’s listing on her Story, revealing that the Don’t Be Tardy personality was selling a “Brand New” designer bag for $3,500. The IG user pointed out the visible signs of wear and tear along the handle’s stitching in a zoomed-in shot.
“Now this is just wrong,” the user captioned the post. “‘BRAND NEW’ according to Kim’s description … Do you think she’d give the/a buyer a refund for the bag? BUYER BEWARE! Thank you to the follower who notified me about this.”
Fans and followers chimed in with opinions on the luxury item, calling out Kim for trying to unload a potentially used and counterfeit bag.
One person wrote — “I have Louis bags that are 30 years old and never seen damage like that. She’s got fakes! Hence the reason she won’t offer certificate of authenticity.”
Another fan noted that the worn handle was not typical of a Louis Vuitton bag.
The person said — “I’ve not had a [Louis Vuitton] do that yet! Not even my oldest ones.”
One follower suggested — “That bag is fake. Plus, when all you do is lie, it becomes part of who you are and one doesn’t even realize after a while they’re doing it. She is pathological, so it’s all she knows.”
One commenter pointed to Kroy exposing the former reality star’s alleged gambling addiction, writing — “I’m a therapist who covers bravo and I’ve seen lots of these posts. When people are deep in active addiction they are not reality based. There is a level of delusion that allows them to continue the behaviors. That is what we are watching and it is quite sad. Hope she can get the help she needs ❤️.”
Kim announced that she was parting ways with the former Atlanta Falcons linebacker in May. The pair’s dueling divorce petitions kicked off a string of accusations from both sides, with Kim calling out Kroy for alleged drug use and Kroy accusing Kim of having an account-draining gambling addiction.
The couple called off the divorce two months later.
Last month, Kim took to Instagram to sell off her daughter, Brielle Biermann’s designer possessions. The former Bravo star offered her 3.4 million followers an opportunity to scoop up some of her daughter’s high-end goods, including a Louis Vuitton Keepall duffel bag, which was priced at $20k.
Kim admitted that she was peddling Brielle’s belongings without her permission, noting that she was accepting purchases through Zelle or Cash App.
“I’m cleaning out her closet, kinda, without her authorization a little bit too,” the 45-year-old said via her Instagram Story.
Kim also dug into her own wardrobe during the July selloff, offering a pair of barely worn Louis Vuitton boots for $650, brand new $750 Gucci shoes, $450 Alexander Wang boots and $250 Valentino slides.
