Kim Zolciak Gambles Away Cash from Sold Designer Bags and Ignores Bills … Kroy Begs Court to STOP Her!
Kroy pointed to the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum’s “expansive collection” of almost new designer bags, shoes and clothes that she had been selling online, in a newly filed motion obtained by Radar Online.
Kim Zolciak recently listed pieces of her estranged husband’s Louis Vuitton luggage alongside her own designer duds, including shoes and bags priced from $650 to $6,750. A Chanel bag was up for grabs for nearly $7k, and a pair of “brand new” Gucci shoes seemingly sold for $1,250.
The ex Atlanta Falcon linebacker’s attorney, Marlys A. Bergstrom, told the court that “none of the funds have been utilized to support the marital estate,” from the social media sell-off. He noted that it remained unclear as to where Kim Zolciak had stashed the proceeds.
The most recent court documents stated that Kim and Kroy formerly shared access to only joint bank accounts.
Kroy Biermann’s motion stated — “Purchases made by the parties, separately or jointly, were funded by assets in the joint accounts.”
The motion clarified that Kim and Kroy now have separate bank accounts, established after the split. Kroy is asking that the court classify the couple’s assets as marital or personal. He also requested that Kim be required to cover all attorney fees and additional costs tied to the filing of the new motion.
What has Kim been doing with the family’s finances? Her soon-to-be ex-husband claims that Kim is grappling with a severe gambling addiction that’s drained their financial resources. Amid their contentious divorce, Kroy alleged that Kim has been recklessly spending all her earnings in casinos and on lottery scratch-offs, indulging her intense gambling habit while neglecting to pay off millions in outstanding bills.
The duo has been slammed with multiple lawsuits over the past several months, including a massive tax lien by the IRS. The government agency slapped the couple with a whopping $1,147,834.67 bill shortly before they announced their breakup, earlier this year. Kroy was later hit with a lawsuit over debt racked up in a Bahamas casino and an outstanding bill tied to a car lease. Kim is also being sued by Saks/Capital One for neglecting to pay $150k in credit card debt and fees. Last month, the former Don’t Be Tardy star was ordered to pay $230k after she defaulted on a home equity line of credit.
Kroy recently disputed claims that he had sold off personal items to buy Christmas gifts for the pair’s children. Last month, insiders told TMZ that Kim was peddling possessions she acquired before the marriage to raise funds to buy their kids Christmas gifts.
“Kroy did not buy gifts, a.k.a, ‘stuff’ for the children,” Bergstrom told Us Weekly on Wednesday, December 27. “He didn’t sell purses, shoes, or wigs to get cash to turn into material goods; no argument, that was all Kim.”
The attorney explained that his client invested time, not money, in the lives of his kids.
The soon-to-be exes have also been struggling to sell their Milton, Georgia mansion, as January foreclosure proceedings loom.
