Reality TV stars Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann recently filed for divorce after 11 years together, with rumours speculating that they split due to infidelity or an open marriage. However, sources close to the couple have shut down these claims and stated that financial issues were only part of the reason for the split. The couple owes the IRS $1.1m in unpaid taxes, interest, and penalties, and has faced real estate issues after their Georgia mansion went into foreclosure multiple times.
Sources close to Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann have denied rumors that infidelity or an open marriage caused their divorce, and instead imply financial issues played a factor, along with Zolciak wanting to end the marriage “months ago.”
Last week, news broke that reality TV stars Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann filed for divorce after 11 years together. There were rumors that infidelity and an open marriage played a role, but sources close to the couple have denied these claims. Additionally, rumors that Zolciak wanted to return to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” after her departure in 2012 were also shut down.
While financial issues are believed to have contributed to the split, sources say that Zolciak had been contemplating divorce for months before actually filing. The couple owe the IRS $1.1 million in unpaid taxes, interest, and penalties from 2013, 2017, and 2018. They have also faced real estate issues, with their Georgia mansion going into foreclosure multiple times.
Despite their monetary problems, the former couple is currently battling for custody of their four minor children. Biermann filed for “sole legal and physical custody” of the kids, excluding their adult daughters whom he adopted in 2013, while Zolciak seeks sole legal custody but is allowing Biermann visitation rights.
Zolciak and Biermann’s reality show, “Don’t Be Tardy,” was canceled earlier this year after eight seasons. While their divorce and financial troubles have made headlines in recent weeks, sources close to the couple are denying rumors of infidelity and suggesting that Zolciak had been considering divorce for months before filing.
