Kim Zolciak-Biermann & Kroy Biermann’s financial woes led to divorce: ‘It was way too much pressure’

0


Kim Zolciak filed for divorce from Kroy Biermann, her husband of nearly twelve years, on April 30.

And now new details have emerged about the demise of the union, from sources who spoke to People. 

According to the insiders, the dissolution of the marriage ‘was a long time coming, and in large part due to their ongoing financial problems.’

A friend of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 44, said: ‘She had not told anyone, not even family. She didn’t tell anyone, even [her] friends were kept in the dark.’

It was also noted that Zolciak had been planning to leave the former NFL star, 37, for ‘a long time.’ 

The source reported that the twosome’s financial troubles played a part in the split.

In February rumors began to swirl that Kim and Kroy’s Georgia mansion had gone into foreclosure, although Zolciak chalked it up to a ‘misunderstanding.’

It later came to light that the couple owes the IRS more than $1 million in unpaid taxes.

‘The money has been a huge issue,’ one friend told the outlet. ‘The million-dollar tax [payment] was just way too much pressure on them.’

A separate source added, ‘There’s no cheating on either side. The money has a lot to do with the split, but there were other factors.

‘He’s been managing [the family] for a long time, so he technically did have a job.’

People also reported that Kim and Kroy have not separated amicably.

‘They’re not on good terms right now,’ one insider dished. 

‘They are a very tight-knit family and this isn’t easy for any of the children,’ the friend said.

The Don’t Be Tardy star and the former Atlanta Falcons defender are parents to Kroy Jagger, 11, Kash, 10, and twins Kane and Kaia, nine.

Biermann also adopted Zolciak’s older children from previous relationships — Brielle, 26, and Ariana Biermann, 21 — when they were minors.

Kim filed the paperwork citing that the marriage is ‘irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation,’ TMZ reported on Monday.

The star is asking for joint legal custody of their four children and primary physical custody.

The outlet also reported that she requested spousal support and that her maiden name be restored legally.

Kim and Kroy met in 2010 at a Dancing With Atlanta Stars charity event and tied the knot one year later on November 11, 2011.

The split comes just after it was revealed that Kim and Kroy allegedly owe $1.1 million in unpaid taxes, penalties and interest to the IRS.

The reality stars also reportedly owe the state of Georgia $15,000 in unpaid taxes from 2018.

Last year the couple celebrated their 11-year anniversary and opened up about their long-lasting marriage in an interview with E! News.

‘If you’re asking for a secret, lots of sex,’ Kim had humorously told the publication, adding, ‘I think one of the biggest secrets is also communication.’
