Kim Zolciak is accusing her estranged husband, Kroy Biermann, of having a drug problem and is requesting that he submit to a drug test. The former couple, who were married for 11 years and have four minor children, are in the midst of a custody battle. They filed for divorce earlier this month amid mounting financial troubles, which included owing the IRS $1.1 million in unpaid taxes.
Kim Zolciak is accusing her estranged husband, Kroy Biermann, of having a drug problem and has requested he take a drug test amid their ongoing divorce and custody battle.
Kim Zolciak, best known for her appearance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has filed a petition requesting that her estranged husband, Kroy Biermann, submits to a drug test amid their ongoing divorce, claiming that he has a drug problem. The five-panel hair follicle drug screen would test for marijuana and other drugs. According to legal experts, weed is not legal in the state of Georgia, where the exes reside, and therefore Biermann’s alleged drug use could have legal implications. Zolciak has also expressed her concerns regarding the safety of their four children.
Zolciak and Biermann share five children, including two adult daughters whom Biermann adopted in 2013. The couple has been married for 11 years and is currently in the midst of a custody battle. Last week, Biermann filed a petition for sole legal and physical custody of their biological children, to which Zolciak made the same request, while still allowing her ex visitation rights. Zolciak fears for the safety of their minor children and believes a drug test would prove her allegations.
The former couple filed for divorce earlier this month amid mounting financial trouble and a tax debt of $1.1 million owed to the IRS. However, financial issues were not the sole reason for their split, as Zolciak had reportedly been contemplating a separation for a while. The couple’s mansion in Georgia was recently under foreclosure. They are currently still living together under the same roof, although they are reportedly avoiding each other within their shared home.
The divorce has yet to be finalized, and litigation is ongoing. Biermann’s attorney has not issued a statement regarding Zolciak’s allegations, and Zolciak’s lawyer has declined to comment on the case. The situation between the former couple remains tense, and it is uncertain how the custody battle and drug allegations will be resolved.
