Kroy Biermann Shuts Down Kim Zolciak’s ‘Working On Marriage’ Claim – Divorce STILL On!
Kroy Biermann’s attorney dispels Kim Zolciak’s assertions that the separated duo is “working on” rekindling their relationship following Biermann’s recent filing for divorce — marking his second attempt to legally end their marriage.
“I spoke with Kroy regarding the ‘reconciliation’ Kim announced over the weekend,” Biermann’s attorney, Marlys A. Bergstrom, told Us Weekly Monday.
“There is no reconciliation. His resolve to see this divorce through to the end has not waivered,” Bergstrom continued.
Kim Zolciak sparked rumors of a potential reconciliation between the pair over the weekend — claiming that she and her estranged husband were still “working on their marriage,” despite the former NFL player filing his second divorce petition last month.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum took to Instagram to clear up rumors after reports alleged that she had moved out of their Georgia home.
“I’m living here not going anywhere!” she wrote on a video featuring her shoe closet. “Been working on our marriage and have been living together as husband and wife. The lies daily are too much.”
Kroy Biermann’s lawyer also spoke with TMZ and insists his client is “moving forward with the divorce,” despite Kim’s insistence that the pair had reconciled. The update came after the outlet reported that a process server was unable to deliver lawsuit documents to Kim, on Thursday, because she had supposedly moved out of the Georgia mansion.
Last month, Kroy begged a judge to allow an expedited sale of the family home despite Kim’s desire to hang on to the property.
Last week, the former NFL star’s lawyer, Marlys A. Bergstrom, spoke out about the situation to Us Weekly, confirming that his client had been pleading with the Bravo alum to sign a joint consent agreement to put the house on the market. The attorney stated that selling their Atlanta property would enable them to clear their debt.
The former Atlanta Falcons linebacker originally filed for divorce in May, then refiled in August after a short reconciliation. He also requested an emergency hearing to ensure that the house hits the market right away.
“If the court orders it then the court can enforce the order. It is taking control out of the hands of the parties,” Bergstrom told Us at the time. “And this is exactly what needs to be done at this point.”
The mansion has gone into foreclosure several times in the past, most recently in February when the couple defaulted on a $1.65 million loan. The auction was canceled a month later.
Kim shares four children with the former pro athlete, Kroy Jr., 11, and Kash, 10, and 9 year-old twins Kaia and Kane. Kroy adopted Kim’s adult daughters, Brielle, 26, and Ariana, 21, after the pair tied the knot in 2011.
Kim and Kroy reportedly got into a blowout fight over finances before Kroy decided to restart the divorce proceedings.
“They’ve gotten ridiculously petty over who hasn’t paid bills,” a source told TMZ. “They’re counting down to pennies.”
Insiders described the couple’s “rollercoaster” relationship, noting that Kim and Kroy would be cozy one day and “at each other’s throats” and having “blowups” the next.
Last month, attorney, Neama Rahmani, who has no connection to the messy divorce, told Us that he was shocked that the pair hadn’t filed for bankruptcy.
“I’m really surprised at how they’ve handled this, both in terms of the family side and the potential bankruptcy,” the lawyer said. “It seems like these two need to separate, need to file for bankruptcy, really start their life over — both their personal and professional life, because everything just seems like a mess right now.”
