Kim Zolciak sued by credit card company over $150K unpaid bill

Kim Zolciak seems to be overwhelmed by a substantial amount of debt following her recent divorce from Kroy Biermann. Saks/Capital One has filed a lawsuit against the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, aged 45, for more than $150,000 in unpaid credit card fees, as stated in court documents obtained by TheFantasyTimes on Friday. Zolciak had not made any payments since September 2022 when she paid $4,179. However, charges and fees have accumulated since then, resulting in an outstanding balance of $156,080.64, along with all court costs. The lawsuit was filed on Thursday, the same day Biermann, aged 37, refiled divorce paperwork at Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia, where the estranged couple resides. Zolciak’s representative declined to comment on the debt. Saks/Capital One sued Kim Zolciak this week for over $150,000 in unpaid fees.

The star of “Don’t Be Tardy” and her estranged husband have been facing financial troubles long before their marriage ended. In May, it was revealed that the reality stars owe the IRS $1.1 million in unpaid taxes, interest, and penalties from 2013, 2017, and 2018. Their mansion has also faced foreclosure multiple times, with the most recent default occurring in February. However, they managed to resolve that debt and avoid an auction of their home. Zolciak and Biermann have been grappling with serious financial problems over the past year.

In June, Target sued Zolciak, claiming she owed them $2,482.24 in unpaid credit card fees. Furthermore, Zolciak’s eldest daughter, Brielle Biermann, recently fell behind on her bills. American Express sued the 26-year-old this week for failing to pay an outstanding balance of $12,870.25 on her credit card. It was reported at the time that Brielle planned to make the payment the following day. Biermann himself was sued earlier this year for missing car payments.

Meanwhile, Kroy has also faced legal action due to their financial troubles. BMW Financial Services sued the former Atlanta Falcons player for failing to make car payments on a luxury vehicle worth $400,100. At the time, Kroy’s attorney blamed Zolciak, stating, “Mr. Biermann never expected to find himself in this situation, with a car being repossessed. But this is the consequence of overspending. Kroy retired and no longer receives an NFL salary. … I don’t think anyone told Kim.” The former NFL player has attributed their financial issues to Zolciak’s alleged gambling habits.

Kroy himself has accused Zolciak of excessive spending. In bodycam footage released in July from a police visit to their home, Kroy claimed that Zolciak had bet $700,000 in “illegal” online gambling. He stated, “It’s probably been happening throughout our entire marriage and has gotten significantly worse.” Zolciak did not respond to the allegations, but she did admit to having a gambling habit in a 2014 episode of “Don’t Be Tardy,” where she revealed losing $250,000 while gambling in the Bahamas. Zolciak and Biermann got married in 2011.

Apart from gambling, various employment factors may have contributed to the family’s financial situation. Kroy was released from the Buffalo Bills in September 2016, marking the end of his professional NFL career. Four years later, he was accused of owing his former agent $22,000 in unpaid fees. The family, which includes Ariana, 21, Kroy Jr. “KJ”, 12, Kash, 11, and twins Kaia and Kane, 9, also saw their reality TV fame decline when “Don’t Be Tardy” was canceled after eight seasons in May 2021. The ex-couple has four minor children.

The financial strain placed stress on Kroy and Zolciak’s relationship, according to multiple sources when they first filed for divorce in May. However, the estranged couple decided to temporarily halt the divorce after sources revealed in July that they were “getting along” and working through their issues. Kroy filed for divorce again on August 24 amidst ongoing financial problems. A month later, Kroy filed for divorce once more, following reports of a heated argument about finances that ultimately led to their permanent separation. A source stated, “They have become ridiculously petty over unpaid bills. They’re arguing over every penny.” Zolciak has seemingly tried to recover her losses by selling her daughter’s designer goods for profit.

Kim Zolciak appears to be drowning in a pool of debt amid her newly re-established divorce from Kroy Biermann.

Saks/Capital One filed a lawsuit against the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, 45, for more than $150,000 in unpaid credit card fees, according to court documents obtained by TheFantasyTimes Friday.

She hadn’t made payments on the bill since September 2022, when she paid $4,179.

However, since then, charges and fees have racked up to a total outstanding balance of $156,080.64 plus all court costs.

The new suit was filed Thursday, the same day that Biermann, 37, refiled his dissolution of marriage paperwork at Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia, where the estranged couple resides.

Zolciak’s rep declined TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment on the latest debt.

The “Don’t Be Tardy” star and her estranged husband have been dealing with financial issues long before their marriage came to an end.

In May, it was revealed that the reality stars owe the IRS $1.1 million in unpaid taxes, interest and penalties from 2013, 2017 and 2018.

Their mansion also went into foreclosure multiple times, with the most recent default taking place in February. However, they settled that debt and were able to avoid an auction on their home.

Target then sued Zolciak in June, claiming she owed them $2,482.24 in unpaid credit card fees.

The former “Housewife”‘s eldest daughter, Brielle Biermann, also recently fell behind on her bills.

American Express sued the 26-year-old this week for failing to pay an outstanding balance of $12,870.25 on her credit card. We were told at the time that the influencer planned to fulfill her payment the next day.

Meanwhile, Kroy has also faced legal action due to their money woes. BMW Financial Services sued the former Atlanta Falcons player for skipping out on car payments on a luxe vehicle worth $400,100.

Kroy’s attorney put the blame on Zolciak at the time, telling TMZ, “Mr. Biermann never imagined that he would find himself in this position, having a car repossessed.

“But this is the fallout when folks find themselves spending way beyond their means. Kroy retired and no longer receives that NFL salary. … I don’t think anyone told Kim.”

Kroy himself has accused Zolciak of spending too much. In bodycam footage from a police visit to their home released in July, the athlete alleged to cops that the former Bravolebrity bet $700,000 in “illegal” online gambling.

“It’s probably been going on for pretty much our entire marriage and it’s gotten significantly worse,” he claimed.

Zolciak did not respond to the allegations but she once admitted to having a gambling habit. In a 2014 episode of “Don’t Be Tardy,” she disclosed she once lost $250,000 while betting in the Bahamas.

Aside from the gambling, several employment factors may have contributed to the family’s financial status.

Kroy was cut from the Buffalo Bills in September 2016, ending his professional NFL career. Four years later, he was accused of owing his former agent $22,000 in unpaid fees.

The family, which also includes Ariana, 21, Kroy Jr. “KJ”, 12, Kash, 11, and twins Kaia and Kane, 9, then saw their reality TV fame dwindle when “Don’t Be Tardy” was canceled after eight seasons in May 2021.

The financial strain added stress to Kroy and Zolciak’s relationship, multiple sources claimed when the pair first raced each other to the courthouse to file for divorce in May.
